Review by Mirah Welday (mwelday)
I have really been enjoying listening to John Grisham audiobooks lately. On a recent whirlwind road trip I listened to The Litigators. The version was abridged and, while I usually prefer unabridged, this was a decent abridgment. And there were times my husband and I were both laughing out loud, which is always a good sign.
David Zinc has had it at work. He wants out of his high-powered, high-stress job at a law firm where he is being worked into the ground. David reaches the end of his rope and leaves his job in dramatic fashion and, afterwards, he finds his way to the law firm of Finley & Figg. Finley & Figg is a totally different kind of law firm than the one he left. He finds himself in an unconventional law firm with lawyers who can’t agree on how to get new business or how to handle clients. David gets his footing and confidence while pursuing a case that changes everything for him and Finley & Figg.
I thought The Litigators was a legal drama with heart and humor. It has a fair share of twists, cut throat lawyers and just enough doubt to make it interesting. One recommendation: definitely read (listen to) the epilogue!
