    The Pelican Brief is darker than Grisham s usual works, but it s still very well written and original, and its descriptions of characters and scenery are very vivid and realistic.

    I worked at a law firm where part of the movie was filmed When Julia Roberts s character goes into a law firm to ask for a particular lawyer only to find out that he no longer works there and she leaves, that is my old firm It is an ornate marble lobby with a small stream of water in the middle of the lobby She goes through a glass door and can either go up an escalator or up some stairs to the reception desk, which overlooks the lobby The walls are all glass and she can see across the floor I worked at a law firm where part of the movie was filmed When Julia Roberts s character goes into a law firm to ask for a particular lawyer only to find out that he no longer works there and she leaves, that is my old firm It is an ornate marble lobby with a small stream of water in the middle of the lobby She goes through a glass door and can either go up an escalator or up some stairs to the reception desk, which overlooks the lobby The walls are all glass and she can see across the floor into the conference room where the receptionist goes I had just interviewed there before I saw the movie and was having major deja vu while watching the movie

    Read it years ago, remember I liked it, entertaining read I used to like reading Grisham s books, maybe I ll try a new one soon, sort of lost track of all the books he wrote in the past years.

    A stand alone by John Grisham published in 1993John Grisham doesn t always get it right but on this occasion he most definitely did.Darby Shaw, a young law student with a promising future ahead of her, was shocked, like the rest of the legal profession, to her core when she heard of the assassination of two Supreme Court judges.There seemed to be no rhyme or reason for the assassinations The local police, the FBI and the CIA are all involved in the hunt for the killer but are getting nowhere.D A stand alone by John Grisham published in 1993John Grisham doesn t always get it right but on this occasion he most definitely did.Darby Shaw, a young law student with a promising future ahead of her, was shocked, like the rest of the legal profession, to her core when she heard of the assassination of two Supreme Court judges.There seemed to be no rhyme or reason for the assassinations The local police, the FBI and the CIA are all involved in the hunt for the killer but are getting nowhere.Darby decided to test herself by putting her considerable intellect to the task of finding an answer What she comes up with is considered interesting but implausible What Darby didn t know was that she had just scratched a pimple that is now turning septic.Darby soon realised that her brief was a lotthan a hypothetical when people she loved and cared about start dying.What follows is a classic cat and mouse thriller The bad guys want Darby dead and Darby, alone and friendless, is running for her life Not sure of whom she can trust but realising that she needs help and lots of it puts her faith in Gray Grantham, a reporter from the Washington Post, who is one of the few people who really believes that Darby is in grave danger Surprisingly, there s lot of lawyers but not a courtroom in sight.This is a by the seat of your pants thriller the tension just keeps mounting and mounting.A great 4 star read

    I read this when it came out and I was a restless teenager I never saw the movie I only gave it three stars because I remember it being exciting but still considered it pulp fiction Perhaps the topic of assassinated Supreme Court justices over environmentalism will become arelevant topic soon and it merits a re read Or not.

    This book was a lotsuspenseful and entertaining than I thought it would be I don t know why I thought it would be so boring, since John Grisham is so popular It was incredibly suspenseful at parts It was the first book I d read by Grisham, so I really didn t know what was coming I had three problems with it 1 Although, like I said, the book as a whole was really suspenseful, I thought the end was a bit anticlimatic 2 The environmentalism was a bit heavy handed I m all about preser This book was a lotsuspenseful and entertaining than I thought it would be I don t know why I thought it would be so boring, since John Grisham is so popular It was incredibly suspenseful at parts It was the first book I d read by Grisham, so I really didn t know what was coming I had three problems with it 1 Although, like I said, the book as a whole was really suspenseful, I thought the end was a bit anticlimatic 2 The environmentalism was a bit heavy handed I m all about preserving the environment, but I don t like being hit over the head by it Darby could get a bit preachy at times 3 I didn t think that Darby was a very good characterization She didn t feel real Towards the end she said something like, It s not fair we used my brains, looks, and legs, and you get all the glory Despite whatever Grisham s fantasies may be, women do not talk like that, nor do they obsess over their legs and toenails as much as Darby did, and if they do, everyone hates them But all in all it was a great book

    One of the great Grisham stories, its engaging, evocative and fast paced The author s expertise in the legal realm pushes the boundaries of this story It s difficult not to enjoy his work if for no other reason than reader engagement That said, this is on par with The Firm and others affording it appeal across all genres.
