Reviews_ The Firm by John Grisham _ LibraryThing money laundering placement means

Thought I’d never get to the end of this epic grisham novel. I think this is one of his earlier efforts and I remember watching the film a long time ago.

A rookie tax lawyer is head hunted straight from school and offered a dream job with an extremely wealthy company. Star struck, the firm dazzles him with money, houses, cars….And all the trimmings. It seems too good to be true….The only slight botheration are the plaques of remembrance in one of the offices. The firm has had a higher than average number of staff deaths….Mitch is faced with the toughest decision of his life. Should he investigate these incidents and risk losing everything, or ask no questions and enjoy the cash!

This was hard to put down and I finished it in a few days despite its length.

There was a little too much detail in places but it was definitely gripping reading. It had less than usual profanity but more lewdness/sexual innuendo than I was comfortable with.Money laundering placement means the choice that mitch makes along these lines wasn’t resolved satisfactorily in my view although I appreciated the fact that he wasn’t able to just forget about what he had done.

I found it interesting that all of these people are basically chasing money in one form or another and yet none are able to enjoy it because of the circumstances. Even when they get the wealth they are seeking, they want more and it doesn’t satisfy or they have to live in constant fear. This is why the bible tells us for the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows. 1 timothy 6 vs 10.

Reading this I was reminded again of the meaninglessness of life without god regardless of status, wealth, job security or anything else….

Recommended for those who enjoy grisham books.Money laundering placement means it isn’t his best book, but still enjoyable.

Extraordinary in every sense of the word!!!

A former co-worker —way back in the summer of 1993—raved about this book to me, excitedly exclaiming, ‘cat, girl, you gotta read that book the firm! Girl, it’s by this author named john grisham… Girl, you ain’t gon’ be able to put that book down!!! Ooh, girl, it’s good!’…

And so, when my shift ended, I stopped by walgreen’s to purchase a paperback copy, then started reading it while riding the el on my way home…

From the first 10 pages into chapter 1, I was hooked! When a novel is so great that from the first few pages you find yourself gripped, that’s a superb book. The firm is in that category. It is a heart-pounding, on-the-edge-of-your-seat thrill ride packed with twists, turns, and chilling suspense. A five-star page-turner, which in truth, is very hard to put down.Money laundering placement means I even carried it into the bath with me…

Mitch mcdeere, the protagonist of the story, and fresh out of law school, takes a new position at a too-good-to-be-true law firm—which is anything but lawful … In fact, it’s plain sinister.

John grisham’s the firm is sheer, riveting, heart-pounding suspense that will grip the reader from start to finish, and never let up. It is truly one of the greatest legal thrillers EVER written—from one of the true masters of legal suspense. ( )

Mitch mcdeere (whom many may still envision as tom cruise, since he played in the role in the movie based on this novel) is a highly intelligent yet monetarily challenged law student finishing up his degree with high honors at harvard. Holding serious offers from prestigious chicago and wall street law firms for his services, he decides to go ahead and hear the pitch from a smaller law firm in memphis.Money laundering placement means what he hears is an offer he cannot believe and cannot refuse. A starting salary significantly higher than he would make elsewhere, promises of large bonuses for passing the bar exam and succeeding on the job, an ascension to partner in as short a time as a decade, a new house with a miniscule mortgage rate, a brand new BMW, and other perks soon have mitch and his wife abby settling down in memphis to enjoy a life of luxury (albeit with hard work on his part). The firm really seems to care about mitch and his family, wanting happy marriages with several children, to a degree that has abby a little suspicious. As she should be. This is a great and fairly easy read. Like most grisham books, you will find yourself hooked to this book from the start. The ending is good, and you may even find yourself re-reading it sometime in the future. You will not be disappointed with this book. ( )

It’s easy to see why this is one of the books that made grisham an enormously popular writer. The suspense that ratchets up as the main character, a recent law school grad named mitch, gradually realizes that he and his wife are in a seemingly impossible to escape from trap had me turning the pages as fast as I could to see how it would all end. At first mitch and his wife think that all of their dreams for wealth and success have come true as he lands a job with a prestigious law firm in memphis. Sure the hours are crazy but the firm is so generous with helping it’s employees get the house, car, and lifestyle that they’ve always wanted that mitch doesn’t think a thing about the former associates who have died in mysterious accidents at first. However when the FBI contacts him he begins to realize just how sinister the firm really is.

If anyone hasn’t read this classic of the legal suspense genre definitely spend a few hours with this one.Money laundering placement means even though some aspects of it are a bit dated–such as how the female characters or portrayed–the time will fly as you’ll want to read it as quickly as possible to find out how mitch could possible escape.

God bless wikipedia.

I made it to chapter 29 and I was just, like, I know how this is going to end. This asswipe … So I looked on wikipedia to see how the book ended and sure enough!! Just as I suspected!

I *hate* mitch. I mean, really hate mitch. I stopped reading because the book doesn’t end with him have cement boots made and being tossed into the river in chicago — that would have been a fantastic ending! I really hate mitch.

Aside from mitch, may I call him mitch?, reading this book today — 2014 — is like reading a comedy. It is freakin’ hilarious! Mitch’s student loans amounted to $24,000 … That’s what 1 semester cost me! And he went to harvard!Money laundering placement means he sold his life away for $24,000! And a colonial cottage! With carport! There’s also an abundance of chain smoking, everywhere, and drinking and driving. The drinking and driving I found really comical. Is drunk driving a new thing? I can’t remember …

Regardless. SO GLAD I don’t have to read anymore of this godforsaken book!
