I had not read a John Grisham book for some years. I had always enjoyed his books, so I decided to give The Runaway Jury a go. I found the theme interesting and it fitted in with what has happened in recent times in the battle between the suppliers of cigarettes, trying to keep their products going, against the anti smoking lobby. The characters in this book were interesting, and all the side stories related to them gave the theme a big lift. Grisham keeps things going at a good pace, with plenty of surprises, laughs and interest. I enjoyed the book very much, and I will be on the look out for another book by this author.

The Runaway Jury is set in the courtroom of what promises to be a landmark Big Tobacco trial that could deal a fatal blow to the good folks who make, advertise, and sell "cancer sticks." The real action, though, the convoluted million dollar (and mostly illegal) shenanigans swirling around that courtroom, is what makes this book a bonafide page turner. As the book's title suggests, the focus relentlessly dogs twelve embarrassingly ordinary people (plus three "alternates") and therefore by extension the throng of professional manipulators, spoilers, and thugs who will stop at nothing to assure a verdict favoring their client. It's rough and tumble all the way, and part of the fun is never being quite sure until the end the real motives and sympathies of some of the main players. There is an abundance of loose threads that finally come together, and if you're a reader who likes to see the bad guys get their comeuppance, this book will not disappoint you.

I always enjoy a Grisham book. Just when you think you've read them all, you realize there are ten more that just sounded like something you already read. I find these perfect for either a mountain cabin get away or on the beach. When you want something that's not too heavy but still can draw you in.

Easily one of my favorite books I've ever read. One of the few I've read over and over again - just a great plot line, and in typical Grisham fashion, strong details and enough action to keep you hooked.

While the movie in and of itself wasn't too bad, the book was excellent!

The arguments continue to this day. Is it a choice - yes, but one that for many can,t be undone. Regardless of what one believes this story about big tobacco covers all the bases about smoky ing - including the fact that the levels of nicotine is still addicting I should know.

Unfortunately it doesn't, address how big government has found a cash cow in this industry so the chances of having any real changes in the future a slightly less than none.

This is a very fascinating John Grisham book. If you've seen the film but have yet to read the novel, READ THE BOOK!!! It's very different from the movie, with the book about tobacco litigation rather than guns, which have yet to be the subject of successful litigation. The characters are very well developed and Grisham manages to make them not only interesting, but at times hilarious. The book is very fast paced and really hard to put down. A wonderful read and a great film as well!!!

One of Grisham's best!
And a great education for those who want to quit smoking. I read this after I quit but it was great reinforcement and absolutely kept me from starting again.
Tobacco Road. A trip through the workings of a civil trial and plots behind the scenes to get the verdict they want. Big tobacco trying to continue their deadly service.
