    Ok, ok, I'll explain it. My class of Grade 8 students have to have reading time for some reason. (Don't aske me why, but I think it's because my teacher just wants us to have less work.) So not a lot of people brought books, so he brought in his John Grisham books and everybody started reading them. So I went home and I had two of them, The Client and the Chamber. I started the Client and 4 days later, I was past page 300. I went to the store and baught the Street Lawyer, and The Pelican Brief.

    So if you want to discuss his books, or his movies, than you can discuss them here.

    I saw the movie version of the Rainmaker before I read the book. The movie was good! Maybe I just thought that 'cause Matt Damon's in it... hehe. :D

    I loved "The Street Lawyer" and "A Painted House." I enjoy most of Grisham's books. :clover:

    Hey... for anyone who has read The Runaway Jury...

    They're turning the book into a movie. Rachel Weisz is playing the Marlee character. But for some reason, every time I read this book, I think that this part is like fit for Jennifer Garner, as long as the part in the movie is the same as the part in the book.

    I liked the book, it was good. They also made a movie out of it too. It's on tv all the time.

    Ooo I wanna read A Time To Kill. I liked the movie (mostly 'cause I love Matthew McConaughey... :D ), so I figure the book could only be better.

    The movie Runaway Jury comes out soon. But the plot has changed so much from the original, I'll probably just see it 'cause John Cusack's in it.
