Description

Michael was in a hurry. He was scrambling up the ladder at Drake & Sweeney, a giant D.C. firm with 800 lawyers. The money was good and getting better; a partnership was 3 years away. He was a rising star with no time to waste, no time to stop, no time to toss a few coins into the cups of panhandlers. No time for a conscience. But a violent encounter with a homeless man stopped him cold. Michael survived; his assailant did not. Who was this man? Michael did some digging, and learned that he was a mentally ill veteran who'd been in and out of shelters for many years. Then Michael dug a little deeper, and found a dirty secret, and the secret involved Drake & Sweeney. The fast track derailed; the ladder collapsed. Michael bolted from the firm and took a top-secret file with him. He landed in the streets, an advocate for the homeless, a street-lawyer. And a thief.

Grisham as good as ever.

Love John Grisham and his ability make legal maneuvering an exciting adventure. Michael Beck's performance is the A list performer as much as an actor in a movie.

Another Grisham Classic. Great read..

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in the law and how there are honest lawyers around.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Street Lawyer?

The way that the main character was able to put the welfare of the people he wanted to help above becoming rich from a profession known to generate high income.

What about Michael Beck’s performance did you like?

Great narration with emphasis on the parts that needed it.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes indeed.. It kept me interested throughout the entire novel.

Any additional comments?

If you like John Grisham, this is another of his must reads. Highly recommended. As a matter of fact, I've listened to it twice since purchasing it :-)

Good for Abridged...

I really enjoyed this book, and the narrator did a good job. However, you lose so much in terms of getting to know the secondary characters with abridged books, so the subplots were rather un-satisfying. This book was also a bit predictable, but enjoyable none-the-less.

Enjoyed to the fullest

John Grisham did it again...this kept me wanting more...listening for what will come next...can he get out of this situation. The narrator is also one of my favorites, even if the story is not good I could listen to him and still enjoy the audio-book.

Terrible Grisham

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

No one.

What was most disappointing about John Grisham’s story?

Mawkish story written in the most simplistic way. The book seems like an early effort by the author to develop the writing style he became famous for. The music was a terrible addition to the prose.

What aspect of Michael Beck’s performance would you have changed?

Beck was fine. He is a masterful reader, but there was only do much he could do with the story.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment

Any additional comments?

I didn't realize this version was condensed. Audible should have made that clear.

Don't buy it

It made little sense and was very predictable. Very disappointed. Not my cup of tea.

I read this book years ago, but purchased it through audible because I simply wanted to hear how Michael Beck would perform the characters. My thoughts? Brilliant! Can't wait to order Sycamore Row. Whoo! Hoo!
