How are books of John Grisham?

Someone recommended to read *all* books by him. Are they worth having?

I went to Amazon and check 2-3 books and they have 4+ rating.

Some one once asked me "Are you still reading his books ?". And that was sometime back. I have read one of his books. 10th Commandment or something like that. It was pretty good

You would like it if you are starting out new. Once you read few books you get used to it and enjoy less, although I have read almost all of his books. I like his writing style, keeps me gripped.

You could try looking in a library to see if they have any of his books. That way you could (depending on how libraries work in your area) read a few for free to try them out before buying them.

Libraries are a great way of trying out lots of new authors.

Thanks all for your inputs.

Last night I listen to The Testament for 10-15 minutes, and I found it good.

His stuff is usually pretty good. I liked The Rainmaker, The King of Torts, and The Partner the best.

No, I am from Valsad/Gujarat.

I completed reading The Innocentman and I found it good.
