A Painted House
A Painted House
"The perfect Southern coming of age tale, this book could not be any better.  Grade: A+"
The Firm

"Without doubt, the best legal thriller John Grisham ever wrote.  Great characters, plot, suspense, and ending.  This book has it all. Grade: A"
The Pelican Brief
The Pelican Brief
"One of the most unique Grisham books, the plot is very different than his others.  Very engaging and refreshing read. Grade: A"
The Testament

"I like the themes that he deals with here, especially the "born again Christian" ones.  I like the story and the setting.  Grade: A-"
The Last Juror
The Last Juror
"This was a great book. It is similar to "A Painted House" in the fact that it chronicles the life of a small Southern town. It is slow at times, but always full of character.  Grade: A-"
The Partner

"This is a very entertaining book, you really cheer for the protagonist.  The ending is.... unpredictable.  Grade: B+"
The Broker: A Novel
The Broker: A Novel
"This is a very entertaining "on-the-run" political thriller. Similar to a Tom Clancy spy-novel, only more simplistic. Great chase scenes and insight into Italian life and culture.  Grade: B+"
The Rainmaker
The Rainmaker
"Fairly predictable story about a little-guy law school grad taking on the big-guy insurance sharks.  Grade: B"
The Runaway Jury
The Runaway Jury
"On-par for Grisham.  The courtroom element can get tiring. Grade: B"
The Brethren
The Brethren
"Finally, a Grisham that tackles high-level politics.  However, it is an mediocre effort.  Grade: B"
The Client

"I just couldn't get into this story and empasize with the teenage main character.  Good writing for the most part though.  Grade: B-"
A Time to Kill
A Time to Kill
"Most people will rank this one in the top 3.  I am just sick of trial-legal stories, and I did not agree with or like the plot.  Taking on the law yourself does not mean justice is served.  Grade: C+"
The Chamber
The Chamber
"A book dealing with issues of the death penalty.  Very slow, somewhat predictable, did not hold my interest.  Grade: D"
The Street Lawyer
The Street Lawyer
"Absolutely the worst Grisham novel.  I really disliked the preachy manner of the book.  Forget it, it's garbage.  Grade: F"
