John Grisham Is Overatted. Who Is Ur Favourite Author (law Category) by RiffRaff: 11:42pm On Apr 19, 2012
When u ask d Average Nigerian Novel Reader about Good Writers they Tell U: S.Sheldon, D.Steel, R.Ludlum, F.Forsyth, J.H.Chase, J.Collins, N.Robert, J.Archer, D.Brown, John Grisham & d Likes.. These guys are popular among d Average Readers, most People rarely Read works by other Authors. 'v read works by most of these authors & Some of them are Pretty Good but this Guy Grisham, 'v read lyk 4 of his books (Runaway Jury, D Firm, D Partner, 1 dat suck so bad i cant rememba d Title) & frankly m 1darin wat al hype is all about. All fairly Normal Average book or is there a very gud 1 am missin?
In d Law Category there is only 1 person dat has totally Blown me away though its: Richard North Patterson (Terrific Writer).
People lyk Philip Margolyn, scott Turow & d likes are nt bad Either.
Who is ur fav writer in d Law Category?

scott turow,david baddacci,micheal connely,but john grisham rocks especially with his books the broker,the appeal,the chamber,street lawyer,and the coffesion.

Same here Op...Richard North Patterson it is.
Love the courtroom drama in Degree of Guilt,The Final Judgement and Conviction.

John Grisham and his 'The' novels equally rock too smiley

I haven't read much of other law authors, but to say J.Grisham is overrated, I disagree!

OP
Honestly, this post doesn't deserve a reply. You've read what? 4 books? Grisham has what? 30 books? And from your perspective he's overrated? I've read many(20?) of his books and he deserves all the credit he gets.
Maybe you just don't understand what he writes.
I read runaway jury last week or so. It is as good as I expect a law-themed novel to get. Infact the 3 books you listed are all excellent books. I suspect you haven't even read them or you're just dumb.
Re: John Grisham Is Overatted. Who Is Ur Favourite Author (law Category) by mykhel995: 1:56pm On May 03, 2012
And I would like you to name the one that sucks so bad you can't remember the title.

John Grisham isn't overrated, I have read all of his books including the non-legal stories. Philip margolin,michael connely, tami hoag, steve matin, scott frost are all superb writers but nothing beats a john grisham.

That's my OP sha

My favourite authour is Karen Kingsbury. I love her style of writing. She has this way of weaving her story line with descriptive aesthetics. Go read "One Tuesday Morning" and you will instantly develop a sense of quest for her other piece.

I don't think John Grisham is overrated at all. For me, King of Tort remains one of his best work
