The Pelican Brief

leave a comment »


Sometimes when I’m feeling nostalgic I think of the good ol’ days when John Grisham still wrote his own books- or at least when he wrote his early books and was all okay with being mediocre as long as there was violence and a good chase scene.  Remember those days?  If not, The Pelican Brief is for you.  It’s also very good for when you want to read but you’re so annoying sick with a bad respiratory infection that you keep passing out and can’t follow all but the most simplistic and familiar of plots.  Good times, good times.

Post Script:  It has come to my attention that the above may indicate I do not like this book.  Quite the opposite in fact; it’s my favorite Grisham book, and I’ve definitely read it more than three times.  I just consider it a guilty pleasure along the lines of Dan Brown: great story, so-so writing, and totally demanding of suspended disbelief.  Long live Darby Shaw.
