Cory and I listened to this on the road while driving from spot to spot, entertaining. Absolutely love Grisham I was drawn into the story wanting not put the book down. pretty good listen to on a long car ride One of my first audio books I found myself not wanting my commute to end I loved it and it made me despise the world of tort law Great read King of Torts was not one of Grisham s better books It was okay. interesting view of tort law Grisham always does write a novel that holds your attention This was much cleaner than the last two I read, in terms of language, and a much better story. I read this book for my book club I remember nothing about the book or any discussion we may have had aboutit. The King of Torts was interesting however I would not rate it as page turner The plot was interesting however the characters and timing did not keep me motivated as in some of the other Grisham books.
