good product with high quality. This is a gift for someone that is studying to become a chef. I did take it out of the box and it is a very nice product. The weight and handle are very good for cutting and even my smaller hands felt comfortable with the size. satisfied. for my best friend, value for this price.

The protagonist's volta is simply not credible. This is readable and kind-hearted, one supposes, or is it a simulation of kindness? It is Dickensian in its sentimentality, and it isn't, because of its literary ineptitude. The novel is faintly racist, most patently so when Super-liberal Brock infers contrary positions or lapses, period. Cringing occurs when a black woman's babies' fathers are carelessly called "these tomcats," or when the Tiny Timmish Ruby, a black addict, takes on the characteristics of a pet rat. In the afterword, Grisham declares, astonishingly, that he never much thought of homeless people before writing this fantasy novel. Apparently, this Memphis (!) based writer had never before opened his eyes, or exercised his God-given cones and rods. Finally, painting the homeless with sepia ignores the rancid facts of street life, and robs the same people of a complex, sometimes repulsive, humanity.

Loved it. As usual John Grisham writes brillantly with a wonderfully thought out plot, characters that give you hope and you wish were standing infront of you and an ending that has you satisified.

It's not Grisham's best work, in fact, where writing style is concerned, probably one of the worst - simplistic, lacking in finesse, a lot of "telling" and not much "showing".

But - it's still a great read, and it speaks of social justice, poverty, etc without the idealism common to people who decide to write about this sort of thing. There's very little black and white here - but lots of shades of grey, through which Grsham navigates masterfully. The work may lack in finesse but the message and its delivery more than makes up for it.

a great story...I'm new to reading...previously a TV person...not anymore.
I am definitely a big John Grisham fan...
Street Lawyer was very well written and thought out...Mr.Grisham works with a great crew.
Bravo.

The book has a decent pace and hits the ground running. That being said, reading this book today in 2012 opens the book up to the charge of a cliched plot.
