The Runaway Jury
The Runaway Jury | John Grisham
Every jury has a leader, and the verdict belongs to him. In Biloxi, Mississippi, a landmark tobacco trial with hundreds of millions of dollars at stake beginsroutinely, then swerves mysteriously off course. The jury is behaving strangely, and at least one juroris convinced he's being watched. Soon they have to be sequestered. Then a tip from an anonymousyoung woman suggests she is able to predict the jurors' increasingly odd behavior. Is the jury somehow being manipulated, or even controlled? If so, by whom? And, more important, why? BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from John Grisham's The Litigators.

Many years ago, I discovered John Grisham and was enthralled with his fast paced courtroom stories. Not sure if I read this one or not. 🤔

Prairiegirl_reading @DivineDiana definitely! Lol! 10mo
marleed Haha. Several years ago my sisters all met for a reunion. In our many conversations I mentioned I liked John Grisham legal thrillers. One sister asked, which ones? Uhhh, I couldn‘t distinguish a single book from the canon. So now I‘m 4 years into reading or rereading all his works. And,btw, I still can‘t distinguish those thrillers! 10mo
DivineDiana @marleed That‘s so funny! And perfectly understandable. But they are fun to read! 🙂 10mo
marleed @DivineDiana it really is fun, and to top it off, I‘ve thrifted, one by one his entire collection in about 3 years. So now when a new book comes out, I can‘t just get it, I have to wait until it shows up in thrift shops. The only paperback is A Time to Kill - I‘ve yet to find a thrifted hardback of that one! 10mo
Eggs LOVE courtroom drama 10mo
DivineDiana @marleed I love your collection ! Since I am working with used book donations at the library, I will keep an eye out for it! 10mo
marleed @DivineDiana oh my goodness, thank you - what a hoot if you come across a hardback! Oh I just saw JG‘s next release in Oct is the sequel to the Firm. I kind of love that he‘ll revisit a story even if he‘s written 20 some books in between! 10mo
DivineDiana I had not heard about the sequel to The Firm! Fingers crossed for A Time to Kill! 🙂 10mo

March 1 #SavySettings Courtroom My first thought is John Grisham, he can make a courtroom scene interesting. I love books, movies, and shows about trials. This one I read in 2019, a really good read. @Eggs @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

Eggs Well done 👍🏼 I need to read this one ☝️ 2y

Finally finished with Jury Duty today. It was such a long, boring day at the court house, but at least I finished 2 books, right? 😅

I didn't enjoy this book. It didn't seem to go anywhere. Lots of intrigue in the blurb, and it didn't meet my expectations.

Is this my favorite Grisham? No. Is it the most realistic? No. Was it a fun page-turner? Yes. I had fun reading this story of a high stakes tobacco trial where the defense wants a guaranteed verdict and is willing to go to extraordinary lengths to get it. Lots of good twists and turns, a juror with a secret, and fun dynamics among the jurors. #40thbdaychallenge #1996

Andrew65 This was an enjoyable read. 5y
Blaire @Andrew65 yes, I was looking for a page-turner and this fit the bill. 4y

I can‘t believe we‘re halfway through #bfcr2 already! This week was more about vacation prep at home and work than fitness, but I did meet my step goals every day except one, made it through a 25k step day three weeks post crutches, and finished my 5th audiobook.

I‘m on vacation this week, so no new goals. Just want to take lots of walks and get lots of rest.

wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 A fantastic week! 🎉 Especially considering you‘re only 3 weeks post crutches! 5y

The One Great Book podcast had me wanting to revisit a classic John Grisham book. I was happy my library had this one on Libby.

cookreadsleep Are you referring to The Pelican Brief episode? Because i was pretty inspired by that one too! 5y
Bookwormjillk @cookreadsleep yes! The library didn‘t have that one though 5y
jillannjohn Loved that movie. 5y
CaramelLunacy I recently rewatched The Pelican Brief (love Denzel Washington in it) essentially just before that podcast! I am feeling a reread coming on 5y

The plot was interesting and well-thought out. A cigarette company is put on trial for the death of a man who smoked for 35 years and then died because of it. The jury is magnificently the main object of the story, and it was fun and interesting to see how events transpired. I stopped my other current reads when I picked this one ☝. ❤ it. ⭐⭐⭐⭐4.75

Cigarettes are the single deadliest product on the market; nothing else comes close. Also, cigarettes are designed to be lit and puffed; thus, they are deadly if used exactly as intended.

zsuzsanna_reads Just saw on the news today: the number of teens in the UK who say they tried cigarettes has plummeted compared to 10 years ago. 👍 5y

Perfect long weekend read! I love me some classic Grisham - it's good to read about people who are not outrunning the FBI or some other thugs, like I find his more current books gravitate to. What I especially love about The Runaway Judy is how this is about what goes on behind the scenes in a jury trial, which always remains a secret, and all the corruption that can go into behind the scenes matters. Great read!
