    1. The Runaway Jury, John GrishamThe Runaway Jury is a legal thriller novel written by American author John Grisham. تاریخ نخستین خوانش: دوم ماه اکتبر سال 1998 میلادیعنوان: هیئت منصفه فراری؛ نویسنده: جان گریشام؛ مترجم: محمد قصاع؛ تهران، پیکان 1375؛ در 547 ص؛ چاپ دیگر: نشر آسیم، 1385؛ شابک: 9644182839؛این کتاب انگار با سه عنوان منتشر شده است: « [...]

    2. I'm glad I didn't pay for this book. Our apartment building has a bookcase in front of the elevator, and someone in the building must be a Grisham fan, because I've picked up several of his books from the communal bookcase. This is the worst of the Grishams that I've read.What annoyed me the most was the sheer implausibility of the whole story. The civil tobacco trial itself was plausible enough, but the jury foreman protagonist and his accomplice on the outside have a plan to influence the tria [...]

    3. Nicholas Easter, juror number 2 and a mysterious woman known as Marlee conspire to manipulate the jury to secure a verdict in a landmark trial involving a widow plaintiff (whose husband died of lung cancer because of cigarette addiction) and a big tobacco company. They have to play with both sides (the plaintiff and the defense) and go up against a cunning jury consultant Rankin Fitch who is an expert in jury manipulations. Fitch works for the defense.The Runaway Jury is an intensely suspenseful [...]

    4. Another Grisham legal thriller successfully concluded.This is definitely one of the author's most exciting and unusual books. I think, in part, because those who have never served on a jury always wonder what exactly goes on behind those closed doors. They will never find out, though, because most countries have laws protecting the deliberations from being made public. So, we will never know whether an irresponsible jury just flipped a coin for the verdict, or whether they decided they didn't li [...]

    5. The Good: The beginning and very end of this book were very fast-paced and enticing. I enjoyed the mysterious characters and that the author allows the reader to know what many are thinking and feeling through various viewpoints. The plot-line of this book was very original.The Bad: I felt like I was reading the Bible at times: So many characters were introduced throughout the entirety of the book, and it was difficult to keep up with them and their various personalities. It was also difficult t [...]

    6. ক্যারেক্টারে কারেক্টারে ভরপুর ক্যারেক্টারবান থ্রিলার। -_- এতই ক্যারেক্টারবান যে কিছু দূর গেলেই ভুলে যেতে হয় আগে কে, কি কারনে ছিল।আবার কিছু জায়গায় দৌড়াইছে তো কিছু জায়গায় ঘুমা পাড়ায় দিছে। -_-৪ [...]

    7. It was okay It definitely felt like more of a shot fired at the tobacco companies. It should have focused more on the story instead. As such, there isn't a huge amount of drama. There are tons of Grisham books so I'd advise you start elsewhere, like A Time to Kill. All in all, this was just a bit drab for my liking.

    8. Very entertaining. Very worthwhile. I wish more romance authors would write like him, but add romanceVIEWER’S OPINION:For another book someone wrote “literary slugger John Grisham returns with a story about” I thought how true. He is a literary slugger – almost always on the New York Times best seller list. I periodically read John Grisham to remind me of great writing. I have loved several John Grisham’s books, and this is another one. A number of things had me chuckling with surprise [...]

    9. 4.5*I loved this book.I thought it was a little long, and at times I got bored, which I justified by putting myself is in the shoes of those poor jurors who spent all that time in court. Besides, the unraveling of Marlee's secret wasn't that great. I don't know; it seems a little flimsy. Her parents died of lung cancer because they smoked, so she spends her adult life and her inheritance making tobacco companies pay. We also don't really know why Nicholas/Jeff goes along with this, the whole liv [...]

    10. Another excellent work by a world revered writer. The kernel of the theme here is seemingly encapsulated when the odious Fitch ponders: "Oh the questions he wanted to ask. He d love to start with the two of them and ask whose idea it was, such an ingenious devious plan to study litigation, then follow it across the country then plant oneself on the jury so a deal could be cut for a verdict. It was nothing short of brilliant. He could grill her for hours, maybe days about the specifics but he kne [...]

    11. Anyone who’s been on a jury, and even those who haven’t, will appreciate Grisham’s The Runaway Jury.Big tobacco companies are on the defense against claims by a widow that tobacco ruined her husband’s life and eventually killed him prematurely at the age of 53. Hundreds of millions of dollars and the future of the tobacco industry are at stake if the case is lost, thereby opening the door for huge class action lawsuits. The tobacco companies hire the villain of the novel, Rankin Fitch, t [...]

    12. Visto che al sottoscritto piacciono i libri thriller e fantapolitici, questo qui poteva rivelarsi di una pesantezza unica. Invece mi ha stupito e (quasi) conquistato! Ad essere sinceri, quello che non mi ha proprio entusiasmato è stata la parte prettamente dedicata al funzionamento del sistema giudiziario di inizio libro e, nelle ultimissime pagine, quella relativa alle transazioni bancarie ed ai titoli di borsa. Per non parlare della storia in sé, che si sapeva già come sarebbe andata a fini [...]

    13. Again, Grisham shines in this legal thriller, that I want to immediately pick up his next book on my listBut I resist the temptation, as I know I will be sick of legal sta\uff halfway through it. Maybe after a couple of other booksThe story makes one question his/her own sense of right or wrong, at least it did a bit for me. There's really a blurred line (so they say), and one's philosophies, principles, and values in life are the factors that will influence a person's inclination. The plot weav [...]

    14. I actually, started this book long back but due to some unknown reasons I left it in the middle, but once I resumed I found it very much interesting!! It is indeed a powerful legal story, which introduces the legal system of America to foreigners!!The Runaway Jury is an intensely suspensefullegal thriller. I could feel my heart pounding asI read the last pages of the book. I wasmesmerized by Grisham's narration. The booktackles a lot of important points aboutcigarette smoking which make the stor [...]

    15. This early courtroom thriller from John Grisham mainly moves at a sedate pace, but is still an engrossing read. The plot centres round a civil suit brought against a large tobacco company in Biloxi, Mississippi. Those charged with defending the tobacco company baulk at nothing to secure the verdict they want. Bribery and intimidation appear to be the order of the day for some unfortunate jurors. However, mysterious couple Nicholas and Marlee are also pulling strings to achieve the verdict they a [...]

    16. The Runaway Jury by John GrishamThe Runaway Jury by John Grisham draws you into a story of power. While the widow of a man who was killed by lung cancer, after smoking for most of his life, is suing a tobacco company, the reader finds out that this is not a normal trial case. Usually the side with the most votes gets their verdict, but now there is a single powerful person who controls all of it. The widow’s lawyer is named Mr. Rohr. He is trying to make it big because he knows if he wins this [...]

    17. Esto que voy a decir es muy extraño para mí, pero es que no puedo decir absolutamente NADA malo de este libro.Me ha encantado en todos los sentidos, y debo decir que cuando lo empecé no me lo esperaba en absoluto, puesto que las primeras páginas están cargadas de vocabulario jurídico y pueden resultar algo desconcertantes. No obstante, este lapso de incertidumbre por el que todos pasamos al empezar un libro desconocido dura bastante poco, lo que agradecí enormemente. No es un libro trepid [...]

    18. 2.5 stars this wasn't grisham's best work, in my opinion. there were a million characters that were introduced and i started to lose track of who was who in the middle of the book. a lot of the sentences were also short and choppy. however, i did love to see all the manipulation that occurred- it was so outlandish, but also believable. i'll watch the movie later today to compare the 2! also, happy new year, everyone!

    19. Reviewing a John Grisham book? I know, I can't believe it either. But I've read this book about half a dozen times, and every time, it pulls me in.I've read an incredible number of John Grisham books. They're always very readable, but sometimes the story seems pretty stretched, or just not very compelling. This book doesn't have those problems. The plot focuses on a civil trial, involving the widow of a cancer patient that is suing a cigarette manufacturer. The twist is that one of the jurors is [...]

    20. In this saga, Grisham examines more closely than in his other novels the process of choosing a jury that can best respond to both the plantiff and the defendent without filling the 12 chairs with people who have too much prejudice for either side. There are people hired to help in the jury picking process, and they study every aspect of a potential juror's life. The culprit on trial in The Runaway Jury is the tobacco industry and the plaintiff is someone who lost a family member to lung cancer d [...]

    21. I enjoyed the concept of this novel. The main event is a trial between a shady group of lawyers trying to take down big Tobacco with a lawsuit, and the even shadier lawyers representing the tobacco companies. Nicholas Easter is on the jury and he informs the tobacco group that he could send a verdict their way for a price. Working through his girlfriend, he shows signs that he could hand them a verdict, and manipulates much of the trial.The concept was good, but this novel more than stretches th [...]

    22. Runway Jury, is the more traditional Grisham, but a nifty suspense-filled story. I really enjoyed it. Lawyers will hate it, as it portrays them as terrible blood-sucking-win-at-any-cost malevolent characters. Fortunately, in this novel they get their due.In this novel Grisham dissects the tobacco industry. Given the absolutely stunning amount of money involved in the recent class action suits against the tobacco companies, Grisham starts with the assumption, a quite reasonable one, that the indu [...]

    23. In this saga, the prolific Grisham examines more closely than in his other novels the process of choosing a jury that can best respond to both the plantiff and the defendent without filling the 12 chairs with people who have too much natural prejudice for either side. The culprit on trial in The Runaway Jury is the tobacco industry and the plaintiff is someone who lost a family member to lung cancer due to smoking. The process by which a certain man-woman team manages to gerrymander a jury in a [...]

    24. Climax. That is what stuck out to me most about this story. Through out the story you always wanted to know what was up with the main character. He was someone that you just couldn't figure it out. And just when you thought you knew where the story was going bam! the author hit you with the climax. As a writer I greatly admire Grisham's use of climax. This isn't the first book of his that I have read where he implores this use of climax. As a writer of a story of suspense or a thriller you must [...]

    25. John Grisham's concept is intriguing , but there's not much else to his credit when it comes to this novel. This is one of those instances in which Hollywood completely improved upon the story. The characters and the plot were improved upon in film- even the subject matter itself, gun control being a hotter topic than the corrupt tabacco industry. I had already seen the movie when I started reading, so my perception of the book was tainted quite early on. There was something really bothering me [...]

    26. My 5th Grisham book! The plot held my interest from beginning to end, and was very fast paced. I had seen the movie a while back starring John Cusack, Dustin Hoffman, Gene Hackman, and Rachel Weisz, and the book had kind of the same premise but only the book is about a lawsuit of a Tobacco company, and in the movie it's a gun manufacturer.Some parts of the book were complicated and hard to follow but it still held my interest wondering what would happen next. Highly recommended to anybody who li [...]

    27. My first Grisham novel. I'm fascinated with the jury process, I like the John Cusack movie, and I'm swamped with work over the next couple days. So I'm listening to the audiobook to rest my eyes and get some exercise while I "read."

    28. šo es noteikti esmu lasījis, bet nav ne mazākās nojausmas, par ko tur bija :) Gan jau standarta Grišams.

    29. John Grisham novels are a good “first read” for me; but I usually have no desire to revisit the books. RUNAWAY JURY is one I have gone back to re-read many times. The movie is also a treat, with Gene Hackman & Dustin Hoffman. A potential juror and his outside partner target and stalk the trials against Big Tobacco; hoping to get him on as a juror in a big case, which they manage to accomplish. While Big Tobacco is pulling every dirty trick in the book and inventing new dirty tricks to fo [...]
