If you don’t know by now that John Grisham’s “legal thriller” novels are liberal propaganda (as I’ve previously noted), you haven’t been reading them and your mind is significantly less mushy and warped than those of his fans and readers. His novel, “The Firm,” was great. But after that, his writing was all ’bout pimping liberal politics. Just like the hypocritical Occupy Wall Street Crowd, Grisham generally attacks the rich and corporations (except himself and his publishing companies, movie studios, and agents), and in his latest novel, “The Litigators” he’s doing that . . . and championing the cause of illegal aliens. Of course, he and book reviewers just call ‘em “immigrants,” not illegal aliens, because in Grisham’s liberal elite world, those of us who call a spade a spade are just “judgmental right wingers.” And, no worries, the illegal aliens he’s helping are just the hard-working kind being ripped off by the evil White American man, not the criminal or terrorist kind. Those–the latter–don’t exist in Grishamland.
John Grisham’s legal thrillers generally adhere to a winning formula: conflicted “little guy” takes on morally bankrupt villains, often in the guise of a heartless corporation or a government icon. Against all odds, Grisham’s modern-day Davids take on seemingly indomitable Goliaths. . . .
In Grisham’s latest, The Litigators, David Zinc, the humble protagonist, and the big pharma company he takes on fit the formula. . . .
Zinc is a burned-out thirtysomething lawyer who walks away from a lucrative position with a high-octane firm. After a one-day bender at a downtown Chicago bar, he stumbles drunk into a two-man “ham and egg” operation run by two lazy, uninspired and boring attorneys, Oscar Finley and Wally Figg. . . . Zinc somehow persuades them to hire him.
What follows is classic Grisham. The attorneys decide to jump on what they hope is a lucrative mass tort litigation bandwagon. Varrick Labs, a fictional pharmaceutical company, is their target. Its cholesterol drug Krayoxx is being blamed for numerous deaths and injuries. . . .
Zinc takes on the case of an immigrant family whose little boy has been fatally poisoned by lead paint, and he defends other immigrants who are owed wages from a local construction company.
Yay, illegal aliens! I wonder how many of them worked on construction of Grisham’s gazillion dollar mansion, taking work from Americans. Can’t wait for the movie.
John Grisham’s books are now boring, and his non-stop political pontificating is a big reason why. Stick a fork in it. John Grisham’s done. His books, now, are neither thrilling nor worth the price and time to read them. It’s no surprise that he’s given thousands in book advances and profits to liberal Democrats.
