    Grisham has a way of writing a real page-turner. This was one of those books that I just couldn't put down. The suspense was intense, and the story was good. When I finished the last page, and I finally did put it down, I couldn't help thinking I had just wasted my time. I mean, I was thoroughly entertained for every minute of the book, but when I was done, I was left with nothing but the memories of my entertainment. Good book, excellent author, but lacking in anything real. I've read 4 Grisham n Grisham has a way of writing a real page-turner. This was one of those books that I just couldn't put down.

Pick any of his books. They're all the same. The movie was okay. This is probably one of Grisham's weaker books, but I'm not that good of a judge. If you want 2 hours of great entertainment, watch the movie. If you want more than that, read the book. Just like Grisham's novels, each of my reviews of his novels is almost identical to the last with only certain details changed to give it a new flavor. Go ahead Grisham, sue me. Then, you can write a story about it.

    I read this before the move was made. This the perfect example of how very much American laws & justices system is so different from British law special with children. This an excellent crime court room drama that only Grisham could write as he was trained court lawyer which is needed to get the facts dead right. After all you need how to crack eggs to make an omelette you would not expect a bricklayer to try to make a swimming pool on upstairs flat.

    The book tells of a boy who happens upon a mob lawyer who commits suicide. But before he commits suicide, he divulges information on where the body of the murdered Senator was hidden by his mob boss. Fearing reprisal by the mob or the FBI for lying, he hires a lawyer to get him out of this mess. I only slightly dislike this book because the premise of the book is weak.

I could not get over the fact that the kid could have avoided the whole suspense by telling the FBI the truth about the body of the Senator. In that way, he and his immediate family could have gone into the Witness Protection Program and considering his mother's miserable job, the WPP would actually be step up from his current life. Also, his lawyer could have advised him to tell the FBI so the kid would be in WPP instead of a possible target of the mafia. The excitement of the book did not have purpose to it so this is the reason the book sucked. And what is wrong with Assistant Attorney General, he already knew the kid was not talking because he was scarred for his life and the life of his family so could he not cut a deal with the FBI to expedite the WPP? What is wrong with the mother? Sure it would be a hastle to be in the WPP but their lives are already in danger! So, the WPP would actually be safer for them instead of having their identity known currently. This is an idiotic and unbelievable plot. I guess the only redeeming quality about this book is the relationship between the kid and the 52 year old lawyer in which they both alternated being the adult in the relationship. For that, I will give this book 1.5.

    It all started when Mark Sway (11) took his younger brother Ricky (8) in a secluded part of a park to teach him how to smoke. They were just doing their business when a shiny car arrived and apparently the driver was trying to kill himself and did so by the end. Suddenly Mark along with his brother(who suffers a trauma) became witnesses of not only a suicide of a well-known lawyer, but Mark knows more than that. This is a story of an 11-year old boy caught up in a legal drama too big for himsel It all started when Mark Sway (11) took his younger brother Ricky (8) in a secluded part of a park to teach him how to smoke. They were just doing their business when a shiny car arrived and apparently the driver was trying to kill himself and did so by the end. Suddenly Mark along with his brother(who suffers a trauma) became witnesses of not only a suicide of a well-known lawyer, but Mark knows more than that. This is a story of an 11-year old boy caught up in a legal drama too big for himself but he has help. His 52-year old lawyer, Reggie Loves, will do everything to ensure Mark and his family is safe and that he's not being denied with all his rights.  It's no secret that this book is the first real novel that I've ever read my entire reading life. I was eight and because of this book I became a reader and started dreaming of becoming a writer someday. So I might be biased with my rating and I'll tell you why in a moment. this book isn't perfect. First of all, whatever genre you see on Goodreads listed with this book, do NOT believe it. Because if you go into this book thinking of a wrong genre, you'll be disappointed. This is NOT a legal Thriller, not even a Mystery or Suspense, this book is a plain Legal Drama, period. There's no secret or puzzle, you, as a reader, would try to solve. There is no on-edge-of-the-seat feeling. Okay? And since this is not a whodunit thriller/suspense, I do understand if the story doesn't appeal to everyone. But interesting things happened very early in the book that I can say Grisham doesn't waste his time or mine, and pages. He got on with the juicy parts so early. But like I said, this book isn't perfect. It's the plot. What makes it NOT a thriller? because the plot was plain. I'm not gonna call it weak but others might. You see the whole conflict could've been avoided if Mark Sway, our protagonist, told the truth from the very beginning. With little help from other, especially from his amazing lawyer, Reggie, things could've been solved earlier. But I like to think John Grisham really wanted this book to be more character-driven than plotwise, unlike most of his books. And I must say, he did a great job with it. You see, despite the plot, and that despite the fact that you can guess everything, including the end in 30% mark, you'll still read the whole thing because by then you're already invested on Mark Sway and his lawyer. The moment Mark was introduced in first chapter, I was sold. The opening scene with Mark trying to teach his younger brother how to smoke was just so adorable. Not that I find smoking adorable, but Mark, really, you have no choice but to love him. He's one of the most interesting characters I know. I just love hearing/reading his thoughts. And I think Mark is top of the reasons why I fell in love with this book before. John Grisham really did a great job introducing his MC in this way. Mark's POV, or voice, is realistic for an 11-year old but his uniqueness is apparent making him more interesting than any other 11-year old. I mean he calls his father, his ex-father. hehe. And the way he thinks of himself as the man in the house so he protects his mother and Ricky seriously. And as soon as he became the center of this legal drama, my heart went to him completely. His fear is apparent, it broke my heart. He  was still smart and strong but that doesn't change the fact that he's just a kid. No matter how many times he said he's mature enough. He's a product of a broken family and of an abusive father but he turned out to be great kid. Overall, I highly recommend this book. This isn't Grisham's best work(I'll get to that soon as I reread all his books), but you'll enjoy it. Again, mind the genre. be sure you knwo the right genre.

    I remember when Grisham books were all the rage and surely read this one back in the day but honestly, I remember almost nothing about it. I believe it was your typical adult thriller but with almost no sex (this was the 80s after all) and just the typical jumping the shark kinds of hijinks. I know it because both a film and a TV series based on the idea of toxic waste by powerful companies and the way they attack whistleblowers and that is all great but I honestly don't recall being blown away I remember when Grisham books were all the rage and surely read this one back in the day but honestly, I remember almost nothing about it.

    This was just what I wanted, a quick read, some action and a good fast paced storyline. So what if the hero was a 10 year old boy, I enjoyed it! My attention was held throughout, which is my sign of a good read, and the main characters were all likeable. Mark and Reggie were loveable in their own ways, and it was fun seeing the youngster outsmart the thugs and the FBI. I highly recommend this book if you're after an easy read.

A vehicle arrives and a man in a business suit begins apparently attempting to kill himself by allowing the exhaust fumes to fill his car. The two young boys watch in horror as they realise what is happening. Mark decides to intervene... I kept reading this to confirm the ending which was relatively predictable. The story had enough drama and excitement in places, but in others it was pedestrian and long winded. There was some bad language, and obviously some violence due to the subject matter. Grisham doesn't tend to get too graphic and is usually tolerable even for sensitive readers. There is a suicide/murder theme. The moral lessons here are a little topsy turvy. Mark seems to be in a position where telling the truth would place him in serious danger. He lies and adults protect those lies. However, the Bible tells us; "Be sure your sin will find you out." Mark could've told the truth then trusted God to protect him. Regardless, all truth will be revealed one day and God will be the Judge. This was readable if a little long...

    I like every book that Grisham wrote, period. This story is about a crazy, just horrible dilemma. Didn't like the movie…but hey, movies are almost always worse than a book, because they cut out a lot of stuff, they change the story plus, you don't have your own imagination portrayed in a movie.

    Caution: spoiler. I always like Grisham's books in spite of the cartoonish political spin (Republicans uniformly evil; Democrats caring, sensitive, kind). This, his fourth book, was surely not one of his best, but only because there is a mile-wide hole in the plot.

I always like Grisham's books in spite of the cartoonish political spin (Republicans uniformly evil; Democrats caring, sensitive, kind). This, his fourth book, was surely not one of his best, but only because there is a mile-wide hole in the plot. The solution to the dilemma of little Mark -- who possesses the secret of where the Senator's body is buried -- was so overwhelmingly clear within the first 100 pages that each successive machination of Reggie's, each attempt to protect and shield him variously from the mob, the FBI, and the evil Republican prosecutor, became more and more frustrating (but funnier) as the book wore on. How could a clever writer like John Grisham have missed it? How could his clever editors not have noticed? It's simple: When Mark first dumped his secret on Reggie, she could have (and should have, and any smart lawyer would have) simply said, "Mark, you don't need a lawyer. And you don't have to talk face to face with the police or the FBI. All you have to do is make an anonymous phone call to the FBI (or the New Orleans police, or the Attorney General's office, or all three), and tell them where the body is buried. They will ask you who you are. You will tell them that you won't say because you are afraid the mafia will kill you. Then just hang up. (Alternatively, if Reggie is afraid that police might connect the young voice of the anonymous caller with the young boy who saw the suicide and was being interviewed by them, she could simply have had her secretary, Clint, make the call -- or make it herself). No law-breaking; no obstruction of justice; no detention; no court proceedings, nada. Of course, there is no book either if Reggie does the smart thing. But then there would also not have been a million readers who saw the obvious hole in the story and said, "What was John Grisham thinking of?"

Before the man killed himself he told Mark information about a murder case that was being looked at. Marks brother goes into shock from the suicide and he has to stay in the hospital for a while.

Mark does not know if he should tell the FBI the information he received or not because he is scared for his family’s lives and his own. The Client takes place in a small town in Memphis. Mark is a poor kid who lives with his mom and his brother in a small trailer. The conflict in this story is internal. Mark has to decide if he wants to tell the FBI his story or to keep it to himself so he can maybe save his life and the lives of the people around him. One of the Strengths of the writing in this book was that it was always something that you would want to keep reading, it was also a book that you can read quickly. One of the weaknesses was that the author would skip from one part of the story to the next. First he would talk about mark and say what is happening with him, and then switch to talking with the FBI and how they would get Mark to talk. I liked this book because there was something to make you want to read more right at the beginning when the man kills himself. I recommend this book to someone that likes different things about court and to people that like ongoing action. 276

    I've got the film of this on VHS, but it was only recently that I read the book. is my favourite John Grisham book so far, and instead of just the usual legal thriller, an unexpected kid is caught up in the mystery of a shocking crime.

Gentlemen, the pain is here." -Reggie Love, The Client At first, I wasn't quite attached to this book because the first few chapters are kind of dull but, when I reached Chapter 3 (probably the chapter where the story begins to unfold) it gets more and more thrilling! It got me on the edge of my seat!

    My Rating: 1/5 Everyone recommended John Grisham. So I bought The Client. The reviews for the books have been mostly positive. So I thought that this is a good read but It isn't. I couldn't go more that four chapters of the book. I tried again and again but It's just not good, So you know..... So, This is a bad book. I won't recommend it to anybody. Thank you.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I'm usually a fan of John Grisham books but this was kind of a bore. Its based around an 11 year old boy who acts, thinks, and speaks as if he is a 30 something year old man. Is it just me or did some readers also get frustrated towards the end of the book?

    After a very long time, I read a crime-suspense novel. It didn't meet my expectations. I think the plot is over-streched and taking an eleven year old boy as a smart hero who got all his talent by watching movies seems somewhat unbelievable. The author could take a teenager on his place. The end of the novel makes you fool asking the question, "why did I waste so much time?"

    I don't know why once in a year i crave for John Grisham may be because i started reading The Firm as first book, but couldn't complete due to some lame excuses or reasons. So, i picked The Client, The Client will kick-start after 10 pages, you can predict the plot in 20 pages unless you don't read what is written on the back of book. By 30 pages you will find it very difficult to put down. It is tale of a 11 year old boy Mark Sway who met a mob lawyer who was about to commit suicide.

It is typical John G style, first build the suspense, raise the adrenaline, then drag a bit, then dramatized it, then let the reader guess, then add some twist, then add more twists then reach the climax sometimes predictable sometimes highly unpredictable, add bit of humor here and there. So, all in all it has everything a reader expects from John Grisham. If you are into thrillers or court rooms please give it try, I just wished there was some more of courtroom hearing part, rest everything was fine. I will sign-off with 3.5/5

    I really like this movie and watched it before I'd ever read the book. But I remembered that this was one of the few cases where I liked both the book and the movie even where they didn't match up. I don't know that I'll read it again ever though because I did like the movie better this time around. I liked that there were just the three primary characters, for instance. And I admit that I liked that Foltrigg (while still being a loud mouth) wasn't quite the moron he is in the book-- but I'm sur I really like this movie and watched it before I'd ever read the book.

And I'm okay with that. From the book, I liked that Dianne and Reggie seem to have a better relationship. I also love that the employer sends her flowers. I was annoyed, though, about the random court reporter and her skirt. Sometimes the sex junk-- totally irrelevant to the story-- annoys me a lot and this time it did especially. So the story is great, high-speed, likeable characters, good background, but then you just gotta go throw in a little trash to sell more. Yeah, annoyed me. I admit it. So, like the story and really like Mark, Reggie, and Dianne, but it will be a long time before I read it again.

    A story I followed breathlessly from page one until I remembered that I was supposed to figure out its plot and all that jazz. I forgot. I got sucked in. I don't remember the last time I was so engrossed. An eleven-year old kid against lawyers and FBI and mafia. And one very dead body hidden in a secret place. And everyone trying to find the body. And the kid and the killer the only ones who know where it's at. What's not to like? One of those books you want to swallow in one sitting.

    this is the book that made me not read any more of his books. It's like he woke up one morning and said, I'm done. He left countless threads unraveled. He dropped ideas. the ending was unbelievable and abrupt. All in all what could have been an amazing book was such a disappointment that it made me avoid him because I was so angry he wasted my time.

    Love Grisham's early work especially. Characterization is always uppermost in my mind and he does a great job. Read it awhile back and then took it on vacation again to read. That is my highest endorsement.

    I had seen the movie years ago so I had a general idea about the book. The book is so much better than the movies. The book goes into so much more detail. It's so life like with the Mob element and how devious the goverment is when trying to pursue their agenda.

    I could not get into this one. I didn't care about the characters and it just seemed cheesy.
