Very entertaining book. John Grisham is an excellent writer and I really like his books. I would say that "The Firm" is an excellent book.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Aug. 14 2008
Format: Paperback
The Firm launched John Grisham to superstar status as the world's favorite debunker of the legal profession. The Firm perfectly casts the way that high-potential law students are wined, dined, and bribed into taking sweat shop jobs that ruin their lives. But like all good novels, that's just the beginning of the story. How does a small-to-medium-sized Memphis firm outbid the Wall Street boys? Therein lies a good tale.

The Firm is appealing because it takes you inside the world of exclusive, top-drawer law firms and reveals the temptations that lie there awaiting the unsuspecting young lawyer. John Grisham makes much of the detail highly accurate while also taking you on a fantasy trip that no one has taken before. The scope of his imagination about "what if" a law firm yielded to temptation is breathtaking. I could have daydreamed for 400 years and never come up with a tale like this one.

Unlike most thrillers, this one had me turning pages eagerly right up to the last page. It was truly an exciting experience for this Harvard Law School graduate.

The novel that made Grisham famous (along with the movie) is one of my all-time favorites. Next to THE CORRECTIONS BY j. Franzen and the novel NEVER LET ME GO, this ranks on the top of the list. Written before Grisham's foray into books such as PAINTED HOUSE and INNOCENT MAN, THE FIRM is a classic, filled with excellent pacing and an ability to keep you on the edge of your seat. Also highly recommended: ROSES ARE RED by Patterson.

I tried reading other kinds of books, like Stephen King books but they just didnt do it for me. The action started way to late. However, in The Firm the action started right in the begininning of the book. After the first 40 pages I could already notice something wasnt quite right about the Firm. This made me want to find out even more. Some of the situations that Mitch Mc Deere got himself out of were pure genius on Grisham's behalf. It was also the plot as a whole was just superb. I urge everyone to read it. The thrill of this book will keep you yurning pages until you finish. It had a fully satisfying ending. I just couldnt stop think WOW how did he get himself out of that. It is my new favorite book and I cant wait to read some more of his book. Also , if you like the Firm you will also enjoy the client.

What a fantastic read. By far this is Grisham's best effort and worth every cent. Grisham has taken a classic "caught between a rock and a hard place" idea and spun it into a wonderful page turner that you will NOT be able to put down. With its themes of mafia, the FBI, and a "too good to be true" job handed to the main character, this flawless tale will keep you up at night. Excellent writing, believable characters, and a tour-de-force plot make this one of the best buys for your money. Can you tell I like the book? Have also read two other very good novels lately, though they are completely different in theme and pace from this one: "Birth of Venus" and "Bark of the Dogwood." Both are great, but please, please, please buy "The Firm" first!

I started reading John Grisham's books just a while ago, and I wonder why I didn't read The Firm first. This book was so good. I read an average of 5-6 books a week, and I think this is my favorite book. Mitch McDeere, the protagonist in this book is a poor guy freesh out of Harvard in the top 5 of his class. This firm really wants him and gives him a new house, a BMW, and a really good pay. Then when he thinks things are going well, he finds out a secret from the FBI. I really loved this book and would recommend this awesome book to anyone. Grisham is an excellent writer and all his books are very good.

I won't even mention any of the plot points here because I don't want to ruin even a part of a great story for anyone. Back when this book was all the rage I somehow remained blissfully ignorant of the whole dog and pony show. Someone gave a copy to my wife to read, which happened to correspond to a weekend when she got sick and stayed in bed. Bored, I sat down one Friday night and picked the book up to give it a quick look. Hours later I finished, having read the entire book through without even a stop for the bathroom. This was a great story. If you haven't read it already, take it along for your next vacation. Even if you saw the movie and hated it like I did, read the book. It isn't even the same story.

"He was their top choice. In fact for this year there were no other prospects. The list was very short. It was Mcdeere or no one" (pg 2). The Firm by John Grisham is a wonderful book about a lawyer fresh out of Harvard expecting money and extravagances. This book plays on every whim of a realist's imagination. Mitch McDeere, the main character, becomes entangled in a fantasy life as a lawyer in a very wealthy firm called Bendini, Lambert, and Lock. Money, cars, vacations, work, Mitch is given the life of luxury. The only setback is a mysterious death of some of the company's associates. But almost as quickly as he was swept into his dream the FBI pulls him out, when he finds that his wonderfully rich law firm is corrupt and sketchy. In further examination of his surroundings, Mitch finds his life threatened by mobsters associated with the firm. This great book holds your attention and keeps your imagination reeling.
