Review: The King of Torts

The King of Torts
The King of Torts by John Grisham
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Money, money, money, money, and… more money. That’s what’s it’s all about. Insatiable greed and spending that makes me sick just reading about it. It’s probably because I’m just an average middle-class reader with a salary just enough to cover the mortgage payments and bills with a tiny bit of savings (enforced savings!). But then again, most readers would be just like me.

The story began with Clay Carter, a lawyer of the OPD, working for peanuts of a salary and no bright prospects in his future. An opportunity presented itself in the form of the mysterious Max Pace. There was something slightly sinister surrounding the offer but Clay took the gamble and became the ‘King of Torts’. Of course, once the ball got to roll, there is no stopping. Or is there?

I would have to agree with most reviews I’ve read in that you could just read the first bit, skip the middle, and read the end to know the story. There’s a definite moral lesson which was completely blatant but really, it was pretty average. I couldn’t wait for it to end. The only reason I hung on to the end was because I’m slightly OCD about reading books to the finish.
