There can be no triumph without loss… no victory without suffering… no freedom without sacrifice… (from TROTK trailer) True words even for today.


I just finished "reading" (on tape) "The Painted House" by John Grisham. If you are looking for a lawyers story you will be disappointed. This book has nothing in it about lawyers. The closest it gets to talking about the law is through the Sheriff. It is a good story. I finished with a lot of interest, but it is nothing like his other books. I think readers should be warned that this is a completely different type of story from Mr. Grisham

I have read most of his books. I loved all the ones I've read. I really liked the Chamber, and The Runaway Jury was awesome! I also really liked The Firm and The Client. I haven't read Painted House yet, or his new one. Won't be getting The Summons until it comes out in paperback. And The Testament was very good, also!

Love is the principal of giving what is needed the most

I love John Grisham's books! I've read: The Testiment, The Pelican Brief, The Client, The Run Away Jury, the Partner, The Street Lawyer, and am now reading The Chamber. I love how all of his books are so different! Ooops, I've got to run. Talk to you all later!

I've just finished reading 'The Partner'. It certainly was mesmerizing and a real page-turner. Anyhow, there's one thing I didn't understand and that is what exactly happened to Patrick in the ending. Did his 'wife' run away with his cash? Was she trapped by some other thugs? Was she herself a conspirator in some unknown conspiracy?....Please lemme know if someone has formed a theory regards that last bit of mystery.

She gave up on him and ran away with the cash.

Hello all. I am working on a chronological book listing of John Grisham's books. I believe that, Time to Kill and The Firm, are 1 and 2, respectively. I have a listing of 12 books but are not sure in what order they were published. Thanks for any help. C

re: The Partner. Most people will say his girlfriend ran away with the money. But read carefully the segment where in the full flush of 'victory' our hero gets careless and calls her on an unprotected phone... giving away her location to anyone who might still tailing them.

Hello out there...

I am looking for the line that was spoken in the John Grisham novel, "The Rainmaker", when one of the insurance people from Global(and I would love his name)read the letter he had written to the defendent that ended with the words.....Are you stupid..stupid..stupid...

I am trying to use it as a reference and want to quote it correctly.

Thank you.
