Description

John Grisham's newest legal thriller takes you inside a law firm that shouldn't exist.

Law students Mark, Todd and Zola wanted to change the world - to make it a better place. But these days these three disillusioned friends spend a lot of time hanging out in The Rooster Bar, the place where Todd serves drinks. As third-year students, they realise they have been duped. They all borrowed heavily to attend a law school so mediocre that its graduates rarely pass the bar exam, let alone get good jobs. And when they learn that their school is one of a chain owned by a shady New York hedge-fund operator who also happens to own a bank specialising in student loans, the three realise they have been caught up in The Great Law School Scam.

So they begin plotting a way out. Maybe there's a way to escape their crushing debt, expose the bank and the scam, and make a few bucks in the process. But to do so, they have to leave law school, pretend they are qualified and go into battle with a billionaire and the FBI....

Ingenious, immersive and page-turning, The Rooster Bar is a John Grisham legal thriller bar none.

Storyline not as smooth as I expected

Though beautifully narrated, John Grisham's storyline was a bit lacking. The first half of the story is pretty fascinating and hooking!!!!! It makes you imagine how the rest of the story might unravel. But unfortunately it unravels in a rather bland and monotonous way.

Even if you love Grisham - skip this one!

Like many others I end up buying all of Grisham's books, they are a normally reliable read or listen for that long plane journey or train ride. I really struggled to finish this one - it was hard to identify or empathise with the characters - the story didn't grip or excite, my disbelief was certainly not suspended.

In all I got the sense that JG was more interested in lecturing about the evils in society than entertaining us in this one.

Nice to read a law story again

John Grisham never disappoints. Great read and it turned and ended where I did not expect. Wish they guys could get away with it a bit longer ....... but still enjoyable

Grisham Disbarred

Unlikeable characters. Dull and repetitious. The Law (sic) treated like a doormat. Snowflakes welcome. Terrible.

Law school scam

Fascinating subject.... makes you wonder if this does actually happen.... ‘makes you think, doesn’t it?’
