User reviews about the book
The Rooster Bar
As a diehard John Grisham fan, I am thoroughly disappointed in this novel. I recently saw him during a television interview-and he seemed to gloat at the fact that his books are often automatically successful. I think he was alluding to the fact that he does not have to do book tours. Well Mr. Grisham-it’s time to go back to the drawing board because this book was certainly lacking. It lacks substance, the characters had no depth, and I’m not even quite sure if the sequence of events were actually accurate. Many of them certainly weren’t believable. I think I’ll take a break and postpone the reading of the next Grisham novel for right now.

Not even close to his usual work. Very boring and predictable. Sad to know he would be happy putting out this subpar book.😒
Uninspired, unbelievable, and disappointing
Highly disappointed; I feel like one of the clients that end up being scammed by this book’s main characters. It’s hard to find a place to begin, with so many aspects being sub-par.
The plot was incredibly simplistic and vague. A lot of “action” takes place in this book, but none of it is described with any detail, or attached to a single clear theme. No time or effort seemed to have been put into making the various settings unique or interesting. Washington D.C., Barbados, Africa, are all very different, wonderful places, and I was unable to “see” any of them based on the author’s (lack of) description. The dialogue among the characters was canned, predictable, and corny. The conclusion was rushed and anti-climactic.
In summary, I feel justified in saying that I regret spending a dime on this amateurish book. This book makes everything written by Dean Koontz seem fresh and exhilarating. I expected more from the great Grisham.

I love your books john, but this one kinda sucked. Atleast the ending was ok.
By Pappa Stopper
Great story of some truth that is probably happening or has happened.
John Grisham at his best! Story was riveting.
A unique novel
In a swift change of pace from the typical courtroom thriller, this novel is a ballad to the hundreds of thousands of souls who strive or have striven after higher education. What it lacks in adventure, it gives back in painful truth : Sometimes, higher education come with a high price. If you want a satisfying read, this book delivers.
I like John Grisham a lot, but had a little trouble with this one. I am an attorney and remember law school vividly. The premise and action of the book require frequent spans of suspension of disbelief. Implausible, improbable and impossible are all adjectives I would use to describe many of the situations in the book. But aside from that, it was entertaining.
