408 thought on “The Brethren

  1. The three main characters were appropriately offensive and slimy and well crafted by Grisham I thought that although the idea of jailbirds continuing their nefarious activities behind bars is not a unheard of idea, the schemes of these guys were rather ingenious I enjoyed my reader s view into prison life and thought it was wonderfully described by Grisham Our good guy, Aaron Lake, was suitably respectable and easy to get behind Added to these mix of interesting characters, are Trevor the good f [...]


  2. I used to read John Grisham s work with gusto, but I had lost interest in his books and hadn t read any in years I picked this one up hoping it would again reignite my enthusiasm for his fiction It hasn t This book was written in his familiar fast paced style, but the storyline wasn t all that tautly developed No character was particularly likable so I really couldn t care about any of them Most importantly, I thought the story was a little too naive, in regard to Grisham s perceptions about pre [...]


  3. John Grisham continues to develop gripping plots from unexpected societal areas Corrupted legal specialists in prison, including a past California Supreme Court judge, develop a clever scam This small collective termed the Brethren use contemporary social concerns and finally a presidential election in their schemes Small amounts of money unexpectedly turn into a huge grift operation involving the CIA, a U.S Senator, dirty tricks by all concerned and international money laundering Soon, it will [...]


  4. I have read many Grisham books and enjoyed almost all I think it is the development of the main character that is a foundation element for compelling Grisham reading The Brethren has an interesting plot and many characters I was not able to get involved with any of the characters perhaps because there were too many for any to get the type of compelling development I have come to expect from Grisham It is not a bad read, just not up to his standards.


  5. The book is slow at the start with one wondering what the plot was Also seemed to have two independent tales with seemingly no connection Soon you were flipping pages to see what was next.Three judges in prison for various crimes running a small mail scam The Director of the CIA setting up a candidate for the next POTUS A very telling tale on politics and how elections can so easily be manipulated.Though written a long time ago, so relevant today


  6. I m a huge John Grisham fan decided to read all of his books from the beginning last year I had forgotten how much I liked this book because I hadn t read it in years I recommend any of It s books This one is about three imprisoned former judges who conspire to extort people of power on the outside.


  7. First I am an older woman who grew up reading Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christy and other mystery writers of the 50 s, 60 s and 70 s Then along came thrillers and legal thrillers of Grisham, Paterson and others and I am one happy lady.I particularly like Grisham s style and have read almost everything he s written I even like the way he ends the books Now, about The Brethren.After picking up a paperback copy of the book and reading a little at a time, I slowly but surely became hooked on the st [...]


  8. For the first half of The Brethren, we follow two quite separate tales Trumble is a minimum security federal prison Three ex judges are running a mail scam with the help of their mediocre lawyer CIA director Teddy Maynard plots to subvert to Presidential election with a handpicked candidate, Congressman Aaron Lake, to promote his own agendaEventually, the two worlds must collide, and when they do it is not, in my opinion, entirely unexpected as to why However, that does not actually bother me in [...]


  9. Three harmless cons making small money, with the world changing outside Then there s a whiff of big money.with bigger consequences The reader says to himself, This is what s going to happen , or maybe This is what I want to happen A plot that twists and turns, keeping you guessing the outcome to the last two pages Grisham has again proved himself able to capture the imagination of his readers, keeping them guessing all the way through the script Then you ask yourself Maybe this is actually what [...]
