Book Review of “The Associate” by John Grisham

The Associate

By John Grisham

Though well written, The Associate does not deliver as much of excitement as Grisham’s previous works.

The pace is very slow to begin with and the plot seems a bit mundane. And just when you think it’s getting interesting and thrilling, the story ends – like someone has slammed the door without an answer. The biggest disappointment is that the “closure” is amiss.

The story is about how Kyle McAvoy (a young lawyer) falls prey to an unruly gang that desires highly confidential data from a law firm and they blackmail him to work there and provide them with the data they desire. The plot takes a quick interesting turn, but sadly right at the end and then it shuts.


This book shows no real talent of a seasoned author such as Grisham. The characters don’t seem to have evolved at all. Alright, it has some excitement, some emotional hook, in bits and parts but overall I won’t recommend it.
