When Oswald cries …

The Firm by John Grisham

We were on Lady Elliot Island, when Oswald, a cyclone has decided to accompany us for about half of our trip. I lived in Manchester, and I have never seen so much rain. As a result we had some extra time on our hands and I picked this book from the little library they have for guests.

A recent Harvard graduate sets off his career in a law firm that seems as generous as Santa Claus in front of a box of cookies. I got into it towards the end, but I didn’t love it. I guess the tone set in the beginning was a bit too smug, and the misogyny of some characters was a bit too much to create a connection. I always had the image of Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner as the characters in ‘The War of the Roses’.
