Among other things, Mitch graduates with top honors, is among the top five in his class, was a quarterback at school, is an athlete but his diet is mainly alcohol and cheeseburgers for the remainder of the novelworks for 20 hours a day, and, of course, requires hardly any sleep.

The story-line never launches itself into the epic thriller that the plot threatens to become, the pace is completely off, and I can safely say that there is no single point of real suspense in this novel thanks to the some early giveaways with which you can construct most of what's about to happen mhmm, no twists either.

The novel starts somewhat promising but crumples into a muted, unimaginative ending with nothing much left to say.

  • The reading is smooth and the storyline is enthralling;
  • Tarrance is a sock puppet character who does not come up with any good ideas during these conversations.

A horrendous lack of detail regarding the crucial money laundering activities, non-existent lawyer talk, no legalese, and, worst of all, no gun descriptions or explanations for what the hell Mitch does 20 hours a day, seven days a week with the obscenely large files handed to him. He works on them!

Some brilliant explanation that involved checking client deposits and interest details lol! Every single bar in the Cayman Islands that finds mention in the book involves the three same things.

The Firm Summary & Study Guide Description

Islanders are playing either darts or dominoes. There is always a band that is tuning up. Mitchel orders the same kind of beer and cheeseburgers. Our guy Mitch barks orders to an FBI Special Agent in the early parts, and the relationship deteriorates later when Mitch can't help calling Tarrance an idiot every time he is required to say something.

Tarrance is a sock puppet character who does not come up with any good ideas during these conversations.

John Grisham’s 3 Must-Haves of Novel Writing

Why converse at all?!!! Sadly, Tarrance is made to alternate between: The last three options don't bode well for poor Tarrance, and all such replies are followed up by Mitch calling him an idiot. When the FBI and the Mafia are hot on his tail, Mitch also finds, serendipitously, the assistance of an ex-con while being holed up in a room at a seedy Motel along Pacific Beach. The Mafia also give false leads to the FBI to throw them off his trail.

Who needs the FBI, right?

The Firm Summary & Study Guide

The absolute worst--and this no writer should engage in--is an extended recital of the events occurring up to a certain point in time in the form a nervous realization by one of the characters, completely ruining the pace and putting the reader to sleep.

Eventually you will be tempted to assume that Grisham doesn't have a brain.

  • Mitch and Tarrance now have bitter feelings toward each other;
  • Although all of the work Mitch has done so far is legitimate, the firm is a front for a multi-million-dollar tax fraud and money laundering operation that accounts for as much as 75 percent of the firm's business;
  • The uninspired title should've been a giveaway, but I read the book only because I heard that this was Grisham's big break that made him famous in the 90s;
  • However, they secretly decide to flee after turning over enough evidence to topple the firm, since they don't completely trust the FBI to protect them;
  • Mitch escapes just in time and becomes the subject of an inter-state chase with both the FBI and private surveillance teams following him.

The uninspired title should've been a giveaway, but I read the book only because I heard that this was Grisham's big break that made him famous in the 90s. I most certainly can't see how.

I don't advise you to try either.
