Just started reading The Rainmaker by JOHN GRISHAM.



Its about a lawyer just getting out of law school and literally penniless, as he starts his career with a millionaire lady and a leaukemia victim fighting against a insurance firm, as his first clients ...

  1. Picked up The fountainhead by Ayn Rand and The Hungry Tide last week. Reading the former currently. Find it interesting.

  2. Isn't there a film on this? I remember seeing a film where the lawyer is defending a luekemia victim and he has not even taken the bar exam.

  3. ...it is "The Rainmaker" starring Matt Damon. It was a good movie. I can only say that the book must be better.

  4. Ashok, you beat me to the new Ghosh novel - an excerpt I read was good, so overall it should be a treat. 350 bucks is a bit too ... maybe I am miserly. The Glass Palace was 200 bucks (inflation ???)

    Sandeep, The Rainmaker is as you say turning out to be good with lots of dry humour and most of his books have been filmed. I have watched The Chamber which is the other novel in this combo book that I am reading.
