Iding a cac I am unable to finish this book I guess Grisham has decided to follow the lead of most best selling authors today and write a book that will ensure him high praise from the wacko "left wing media He certainly didn t write the book to tell a good story that would "wing media He certainly didn t write the book to tell a good story that would in his readers and keep them hooked for 400 pages If you want to read boring page after boring page about the coal industry then this is the book for you I read because to enjoy a good story and escape for a little while There is no story here ust an author wanting to

Gray MountainT a uarter of it and had "to stop It s a long time since I ve given up on a book like that "stop It s a long time since I ve given up on a book like that The prose is amateurish the characters barely make it to wooden the dialogue is embarrassing consistently implausible with non seuiturs everywhere there are interminable passages of exposition where a conversation turns into a local history lecture honestly I used to teach adolescents and got better writing from plenty of themAnd as for the issue well if you re going to This "is one of Gresham s best I grew up in the area "one of Gresham s best I grew up in the area book is about and saw what he is talking about first hand It is very accurate and though he does talk about some of the stereotypes of uneducated people in the area he does not belabor the issue and he does show there are also educated people and that the general personality of the area is one of love and caring about each other He also shows how absentee owners are raping the land to get and sell coal for the biggest profits for them but at the expense of the health of the people and environment of the region So sad that many of the people need the coal obs to live but to do that they are being forced to destroy their own health and their environment neither of which will ever recover Great book I enjoyed writing this book very much in spite of knowing how it would end This is by far the least enjoyable John Grisham book I ve read The book starts fine with heroine Samantha Kofer being furloughed in New York but when she relocates to Virginia to work for a legal aid clinic the story is at turns silly boring and contrived but definitely not exciting Samantha is a real lawyer for the first time and the problems she solves for her clients are certainly emotional but the first half of the for her clients are certainly emotional but the first half of the felt like a collection of random short stories about impoverished families getting shafted by big coal companiesThe second half of the book is supposed to be tense with Samantha and Jeff Gray behaving like spies as people are eavesdropping on their conversations and following them around Jeff is Atter of days Samantha moves from Manhattan to Brady Virginia population 2200 in the heart of Appalachia a part of the world she has only read about Mattie Wyatt lifelong Brady resident and head of the town’s legal aid clinic is there to teach her how to “help real people with real problems” For the first time in her career Samantha prepares a lawsuit sees the inside of an actual courtroom gets scolded by a udge and receives threats from locals who aren?. I think John Grisham forgot to write a story The entire book was simply a way to preach about the injustice of strip mining and poor old down home mountainfolk in Appalachia Interesting stuff Worthy of investigation Boring presentation The whole book felt sketchy nothing had any depth to it shallow characters uickly resolved legal issues shady bad guys annoying protagonist The only true observation working in Big Law can be mind numbingly exhausting and cutthroat Skip this one Disappointingdidn t read like Grisham Characters dialogue plot all were
not up to 
up to the worst Grisham novel Seemed like someone else wrote this or he ust phoned it in Hope the next one gets him back on track I don t know if I can come up with the words to describe how much I disliked this book While described by other characters as a brilliant lawyer the "lead character samantha was a cowardly idiot or "character Samantha was a cowardly idiot Or least all the dialog attributed to her made her seem like she should never have graduated from high school I think the premise of the story gave us the idea this would be similar to The Pelican Brief but in reality it was Malice (Conspiracy 365, just aumble of unrealistic characters and evil employees of large coal companies Do yourself a favor and re read The Pelican Brief and throw this drivel into a fire somewhere Then you won t be contributing to the profits of big coal and maybe Grisham can leave this whole part of the country behind Samantha Grisham s new heroine was a complete bore She was a fence sitter in every aspect of her personal life friendships career love and family Even if she were a young impetuous lawyer who grew and matured during the book that would be fine but she wasn tI think her personality took any fun out of any suspense that was being created She didn t really care so I didn t care I did enjoy reading about coal mining flat top mining and black lung disease I have to write a review of Gray Mountain to balance the ones on GoodReads which persuaded me to spend money on this book It s terrible In fact I managed abou. John Grisham has a new hero and she’s full of surprises The year is 2008 and Samantha Kofer’s career at a huge Wall Street law firm is on the fast track until the recession hits and she gets downsized furloughed escorted out of the building Samantha though is one of the “lucky” associates She’s offered an opportunity to work at a legal aid clinic for one year without pay after which there would be a slim chance that she’d get her old Lily (The Mauve Legacy, job backIn a
