Read The Pelican Brief while visiting grandparents because it was laying around. Hated it. Decided to give Grisham another chance by reading The Firm. Hated that one even more. Now I won't ever go near another one of his books.

I have read many John Grisham books. He is one of my favorites mainly because I love the legal aspects of the story which to me is fascinating.

The street lawyer, one of his first books I read.

I'm yet to find an author better than Grisham, any suggestions?

Having worked in the legal field for many years, I love courtroom dramas. I've read at least half of Grisham's books. There isn't one that I didn't like. I especially like The Runaway Jury, as it is set in my hometown of Biloxi.

I have never read any of his books. I can remember my mother reading his books years ago. I need to read a few and see if he is my style of writer.

I have read a few of his books, but have to say that I prefer the movies that come from them.

I've only read one book by John Grisham called Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer and it was the most boring book I've ever had to sit through. I'm not even sure if I totally finished it I honestly can't remember and I hate not finishing books even if I hate them I force myself to finish and I just couldn't with this one.

One of my best Author will forever be John Grisham. While you read his books, you ain't only reading a story it injects into you long list of other things.

Grisham is one of my favorites. He is a great storyteller, at least when he stays in the legal context. I have read almost all of his books.

Love his books! The Firm and The Cliebt are classics but I like his recent books as well. The Innocent Man was very good
