John grisham any good?
Love his books but the can become a bit repetitive if you read too many of them
I love his books!
Old ones are great. Newer ones… Not so great
im a fan but i did not love all of his books. loved his older books more than the newer ones
I’ve read some old ones a long time ago I liked, just finished reading the Theodore Boone series, it’s geared to kids i think but it was great
I’ve enjoyed most of his books
His early books – rainmaker, client, pelican brief, time to kill, the firm – are amazing, new ones not so much…
I’ve read them all and, apart from a couple, they are great books.
I liked the Testament
I like his earlier books, A time to kill…The Pelican brief…the Firm, those were the best
I’m with you those 3 were the best
He also has a YA collection
Start with his first hit, The Firm, which was a truly amazing book when it first came out.
A Time to Kill was hid first.
It was, but it wasn’t a best seller until The Firm made Grisham’s name.
I read the “Firm” before the movie was made, & it was WAY better than the movie? book was awesome
Totally agree. Read the old stuff: The Firm, A Time To Kill, all those that came out within that 10 yr period.
I don’t care for his memoirs or books about other subject matter – but you might
I don’t care for his books because I think he uses a lot of unnecessary detail. But his books make really good movies.
The only John Grisham book I have ever read is “A Painted House”…it’s actually one of my favorite books! I’ve been told that this book is a different writing style than all his other books though?
That’s the only one I’ve ever read too!
Same here. Nary a mention of the word “lawyer”. Maybe that’s why it’s so good!
@Jim….maybe so? For me, the main reason I like it is that it is based in the 50’s. I love almost any book that takes place in the 50s and 60s. I always tell people that I was born in the wrong decade!
Thinking back about those days gone by made me think of my dad’s memoirs (see link elsewhere here). He wrote Grisham, having been a contemporary and fellow Virginian, and Grisham wrote him a nice letter back!
My favorite is The Runaway Jury. Reminded me of 12 Angry Men.
That was my first and favorite too. It was so good I immediately started over when I finished it to read it again. And I was living in Biloxi at the time I was reading it so it was awesome to see all those places in print it was written free Katrina so I was actually a little sad that some of the places were not there anymore like to sub shop they are really supposed to order from. But based on the description I can tell it used to be there or at at least it was put in a real location.
Love most of his books especially the early ones. They are brilliant ?
A Time to Kill is amazing
John Grisham is amazing I have loved every single book I read by him except for two. Gray Mountain and the Rooster bar, and even though I didn’t love them they weren’t bad books they were good just not amazing like the other ones I’ve read. And the best part of his books is that you never know what directions are going to go in, you don’t even know who sides are on until the climax of the book. Great stuff!
Read all his books. Loved them all
Loved his early books. A Time to Kill us one of my all time favorite books.
Just finished Sycamore Row!! ( Jake Brigance #2 ) Awesome!!!!
Fab ! Love him 🙂
In my top ten author list. I love his books. I’ve never read one that didn’t hold my attention.
3 or 4 aren’t to great, but for the most part really good reads… just don’t read them back to back… read one the pick a different author
I love his books! Even the non lawyer themed ones like Painted House and Skipping Christmas. It would be fun to read his earlier books and then watch the movies.
I forgot about Painted House….very entertaining
I think it was based on his childhood
As well as Sidney Sheldon’s books
I love his books. Always look forward to when the next one comes out!
I read John Grisham books back to back and had no problem. The only thing I saw consistent his books was that many of them were about lawyers other than that I really didn’t see any similar themes, it seem like he told a different story every time.
A Time to Kill….a must read!
I have just finished Sycamore Row and enjoyed it x
LOVE his books!!! He is my go to read starting back in middle school.
Is water wet? ?
Oh my!!! Start with A Time To Kill…..loved loved this book. Really made me think..and such a page turner. Then read The Firm!!
Yes…love his books xxx
Yes if u like law books
Really love his books. Different story every time, even though they are always a lawyer.
A Time To Kill and Sycamore Row are my favorites.
Definitely Sycamore Row!
It would make a good tv adaptation
@Phyllis totally agree!!
@Cheryl Have you seen the movie A Time To Kill? It was quite good – a very young Matthew McConaughey and Sandra Bulloch.
@Phyllis oh yes!!! Very good movie!!
Yes and my husband seconds it lol
His older stuff is great!
Yes!! I love his books.
Very good, legal centered mysteries
I’ve read all his books. Most are courtroom centered dramas. His later books like Painted House, Playing for Pizza, and the baseball one are different. My absolute favorite is THE TESTAMENT. About a lawyer, but not courtroom, and very touching.
Ooh I think ive got that one x
Yes. The earlier books are better?
Always a good read
Sycamore Row was one of my faves
My Favorite’s are The Partner and the Last Juror. I would say he is top 10 for me since I read everything he has written.
