I just finished reading The Associate and have to post that I was extremely disappointed in the ending. Actually I felt like there was no ending. The entire story building upon this intense control that Bennie the handler has over Kyle and the climax of your story is that Bennie somehow gets tipped off, skips out on the last meeting and is gone. Ok that looks like a good way to end this novel NOT. I mean for 400+ pages Bennie and his gang have ruined and controlled Kyle's life, even murder one of his friends and then Bennie and team just quietly go away? Incredibly lame ending to great story. I guess I'm still waiting for the rest of the story to be published.

Have just recently finished Ford County. Might be one of my favorite Grishams. Caused me to laugh out loud a couple of times and even brought forth a tear or two other times. Have read all of JG's books. Least favorite was the Christmas one. A couple of months ago found me passing through Blytheville, Ark., and I stopped in a small bookstore and was informed that Grisham occasionally visits there. That area was more or less the setting for Painted House. Grisham did not visit that day, sigh, but I still purchased 3 books (by other authors) :) Has anyone commented on how much Grisham looks like Rick Barnes, Univ. of Texas head basketball coach?

To all you who are hating on Grisham, why did you even come to this Message Board? That just confuses me.
About his books, they are not all about the same thing. I've read a couple so far and am on my third and the plots are all drastically different.
I love his writing style. It's very enthralling.

What are the differences between the book and the movie in John Grishams The Client? Need it for an essay due tomorrow. Help would be greatly appreciated.

King of Torts did have a twist. It was the plot within the plot. Did anyone else see it? What happened to the pharmacuetical company's fixer? Why did he get so nervous? The lawyer stumbled on to something the pharm co did not want public. They know his weaknesses, like father like son. All the money was quite a distraction wasn't it? The lawyer got himself in a pack of trouble didn't he? Doesn't give him a lot attention to pay to what is really going on. Look at the things that we are told in passing throughout the book. What was it really all about? Best twisting Grisham ever. He doesn't spell it out you have to catch on. What do you think? Anyone?

"The Chamber" John Grisham.
Why does Rollie Wedge steal the keys to Lee's apartment? Why does he connive to get the access code to the legal firm's premises? Is this all covered by his "keeping an eye on things" as he says to Sam?

ERROR ON PAGE 177, Line 6, the conversation is with BAXTER and not KYLE, alot of readers have seen this already anyway.
I luv the book though.

YOU HAD ME. yOU HAD ME. HE TURNS THE CORNER AND HE'S GONE. WHAT?!? IS THIS AN ENDING OR A LEAD IN TO VOLUME 2 OF THE ASSOCIATE? IF IT'S A LEAD IN, IT IS A POOR ONE...UNLESS VOLUME 2 IS ALREADY PUBLISHED AND WAITING FOR ME TO READ. AM SOOOOO DISAPPOINTED.
