I watched the movie first and then I read the book. I am so impressed as to how much I loved the book. The movie was great but the book lets you really get into the action. If you are not sure as to if you really want to read this book, well I am here to tell you that you will not be sorry for buying it. Once you get started reading it, it is very hard to put it down. YOU WILL ENJOY READING THIS BOOK!!!

I Also Recommend:
Really liked the movie and wondered if the book was good or not. So I read it and kept turning page after page, wanting to know what was going to happen. Would Mark talk or not? What will happen to his family? It all started when Mark and Ricky saw the car and the lawyer and then Mark's told the secret. I've heard of John Grisham and his books like the Firm for example. The Client's now one of my favorites and is an easy read. Mark is a brave character including Reggie Love. The book has more details concerning the characters. Like how it goes from Mark than to the other characters and you get an idea on what they're like and etc. This book is more towards the kind of reader that likes murder mysteries and suspense. Overall a good read and recommend the movie.

I was really interested to read Grisham books. Few of my friends recommended his work. "The Client" is the first Grisham novel that I'd read. It's neither a bad or a good piece of literature. I'd like to say that I'd also watched the film adaptation but it never gave me the satisfaction of its theme. The only thing that kept my attention is the relationship of the young boy and her lady lawyer. I think this book will catch the interest of readers who love court room dramas.

The plot sounded fantastic but the story was just mediocre Grisham can do much much better but if you want a quick read its good for the beach or a vacation but not if you want something thought provokingWas this review helpful?

John Grisham has succeeded here in writing a heartwarming tale involving an eleven year old kid in trouble, his messed up family, and his possibly more messed up lawyer. I really enjoyed the main character despite him seeming much older than his age at times, but I guess that's the point. While the "thriller" element of the book wasn't high it was charged with emotion. Missing here was Grisham's usual ability to take you into whatever southern city his book takes place in. I never really got that here. Overall though, a really good book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

The Client by John Grisham puts you in the perspective of an eleven year old boy named Mark, who witnesses the suicide of a lawyer who works for the mafia. This lawyer knows and told a secret to Mark about the death of a Louisiana Senator and where the body might be. Unfortunately Mark's little brother Ricky is suffering from a state of shock that he cannot break without proper medical attention. From there the Mafia and the FBI go on a search to find this kid and see what he knows. Luckily, Mark finds a lawyer named Reggie who will stop at nothing to help Mark and his family. After much discussion of the FBI trying to get Mark to tell them where the body is, Mark and Reggie leave to the location of where the lawyer said the body was. Mark finds the body in the boathouse, but the Mafia meets them there and it is up to Reggie and Mark to outsmart them to make it out alive. They do just that by sounding off an alarm of the neighbors who then shoots at the Mafia making a perfect distraction for them to escape. Mark then tells the FBI where the body is and the Mafia is busted. At the very end, Mark and his family head off into a private plane to get Ricky proper medical attention and no one wants to kill or find Mark. One of the major themes in the book is family first. Mark is always thinking about getting Ricky to a hospital and how he needs to stick with his family. Mark also tries to tell them info if they can help his brother and his family. I really liked this book but I personally think that it took too long to get to the action. The beginning was great and really kept me turning the page but it was the middle that kept dragging out. But the ending made up for it. It kept my heart beating fast and I didn't want to stop reading. People should read this book because it is an easy and quick read, and it can really get your heart pumping. I give it 4 out of 5 stars because it was good, but didn't keep me turning the page throughout the whole book and I was tempted to skip to the end multiple times.Was this review helpful?
