Fancy a smoke?

AdvantagesAn intelligent read

DisadvantagesSlow-starting

"...read. I had already seen the film before reading, so should have known where it was leading. But if I told you when I had started reading it, most of you would probably laugh. I guess that's why I am taking so long to keep up with reading people's reviews, though. I am such a hopelessly slow reader I will be lucky to have read twenty books by the time I die. Okay, slight exaggeration there, but basically it can take me a matter of months to get through ..." Read review

CONCENTRATE HARD ON THIS COURTROOM DRAMA Review with images

AdvantagesClever plot, interesting subject, accurately written

DisadvantagesLittle character development, detailed and confusing

"The Runaway Jury is another legal novel by John Grisham. This time, the focus of the story is a lawsuit by widow Celeste Wood against cigarette manufacturer, Pynex. Celeste’s husband Jacob, a lifelong smoker of three packets of cigarettes a day, died at the age of 51 from lung cancer. The focus of the case is Pynex’s liability for Jacob’s death. It is the ninth such case of its kind, and each time so far, the jury has found in favour of the cigarette ..." Read review

Court setting story with a good twist.

AdvantagesOnce it got going was a good story

DisadvantagesSome bits were a bit boring in the court room

"...long ago and one of the books on sale was The Runaway Jury written by John Grisham. I had heard of the author and on looking at the list of books he had already written I knew a few of the stories, either from films made from the books or that I had already read them in the past. The blurb on the back of the book made it look like a good interesting story so I bought it, and at an excellent bargain price of 20p. This story is set around the courts ..." Read review

Disadvantages

"...in John Grisham's new novel The Runaway Jury. It's a timely legal thriller: Giant tobacco companies versus the giant anti-smoking lobby. Three-pack-a-day, 30-year smoker Jacob Wood is dead and his widow's lawsuit becomes all things to all involved; plaintiffs' lawyers want to open the door on tobacco liability, and the industry wants it slammed shut. Grisham puts The Runaway Jury's court action in Biloxi and flavours it with the Gulf Coast's gambling ..." Read review

Product Information for "The Runaway Jury - John Grisham" »

Manufacturer's product description

Every Jury has a leader, and the verdict belongs to him. In Biloxi, Mississippi, a landmark trial with hundreds of millions of dollars at stake begins routinely, then swerves mysteriously off course. The jury is behaving strangely, and a least one juror is convinced he's being watched. Soon, they have to be sequestered. Then, a tip from an anonymous young woman suggests she is able to predict the juror's increasingly odd behaviour. Is the jury somehow being manipulated, or even controlled? If so, by whom? And, more importantly, why? See all Product Description
