A review of john grishams novel the rainmaker

Sorry! Something went wrong!

A young rookie lawyer takes on a big insurance company. There is no reason to complain that this is yet another lawyer story about a court case.

There is a time to move beyond that initial reaction with John Grisham books. After all, if it works, why change? Of the few people who do not like this book, they complain that The Rainmaker lacks any kind of action.

Therefore, that makes it "boring". Well, if it has a good plot, who needs continuous action? This novel was surprising, and it was quite good, in fact. The main character, Rudy Baylor - perhaps Grisham's most developed character.

It starts off with young Rudy looking over some potential cases. Obviously not for him, at least yet, because he is just about to graduate law school and he has not taken the bar exam yet. Out of the two cases that most interest him, the most notable one is a case against an insurance company.

See a Problem?

After he finishes school, the firm he was about to work for fires Rudy, before he even starts working. This was due to new ownership. The next firm who hires him, let him go after two days. They just wanted the insurance company case he was working on.

Well, after barely retaining the rights to the case, Rudy gives up looking for a notable firm and starts to work for his friend's lawyer, Brusier Stone. Brusier turns out to be a real fraud. A good lawyer, mind you, but a bit illegal.

Here, Rudy meets one of his associates, Deck Shiffler. Technically, he isn't a lawyer.

He failed the bar exam six times in a row. In fact, Deck's character sums up the type of company Brusier is running.

Well, Brusier eventually is indicted for one of the many crimes he is involved with.John Grisham is the author of twenty-three novels, including, most recently, The Litigators; one work of nonfiction, a collection of stories, and a novel for young readers.
