well 2.5 stars really. i had high expectations.
it would have got more if grisham would have thrown less unnecessary and mundane details (but i guess this is his style of writing).
Also there were many loopholes in the book like abby and the detective's secretary already knew that the phones were bugged then why did they made the call through the firm's condos? also the fbi's were kind of projected stupid to meet with Mitchell McDeere at public places and get caught too ! these are just a bunch of them ( i have many more questions!! )
the first 25 % dealt with the protagonist joining the firm and that stupid bar exam,the last 25% of the book involved running from the feds and stupid morolto's men.
this part was stretched a bit too much i think. in the end i was like -- when will this novel end :|
