DS (15) wants to study law. When I told him that the late John Grisham had been a lawyer and decided to become a novelist specialising in stories about lawyers and justice, DS said he'd like to read some of JG's books.

My DH's grandparents lent DS six JG books and he is going through them, albeit it slooooowwwwwlyyyyy. LOL

I have not read any John Grisham books, mostly because the genre doesn't interest me. But DS is determined to get through these books as he believes they'll give him a better idea about "real" law. Maybe they shall!

He has some books for kids called Theodore Boone, kid lawyer. They are well-written and interesting.
John Grisham is still alive. :).

The only thing I know about him is that he used to be a frequent customer at my grandmother's antique shop in Alabama. Apparently he made quite a difference to her bottom line. :). I haven't read any of his works, however.

My husband used to read JG, so they've been lying around the house forever. Our oldest picked them up a few years ago, and I think Ds11 has even read a few.

Ds15 hasn't read many of the newer ones, but he highly recommends The Client, The Firm and The King of Torts. He says The King of Torts is the most "actually about practicing law".

I'll blame DH for that bit of misinformation LOL.
Thanks for the info re the kid lawyer books. DS probably won't be interested (anything to do with kids...it turns him off, even in books!) but I shall mention them.
