Rogue Lawyer: by John Grisham | Summary & Analysis
Book*Sense - 2015
John Grisham offers readers a sort of slice-of-life view of Sebastian Rudd as he handles a few cases amid a long and not-always-pleasantly-storied career representing those whom the legal system will not otherwise touch. An enjoyable read, it takes an interesting narrative tack, and it comments on the state of the legal system in the United States – one in need of much reform. It offers an enjoyable read. Despite some critical panning, the text draws readers along through a part of the legal system not often explored in popular conceptions of lawyers, and the divergent viewpoint is refreshing. John Grisham’s novel follows Sebastian Rudd as he litigates a series of cases and attempts to navigate a personal life that suffers from his work. Ranging from small-town persecutions through suburban mischances to death-row work and bigger-city notoriety, the novel examines the less glamorized aspects of legal work as Rudd represents those whom other lawyers will not in situations where they dare not, as well as some of the less pleasant aspects of the legal system and broader society of the United States. The novel is set for the most part in an ambiguous city. It is large enough to host a lively fight scene, yet not so large as to have major landmarks identifying it. Unnamed, it allows for universalization of the narrative; readers across the United States can look on the setting and see something, perhaps many things, familiar to them, easing their access to the narrative. This companion includes the following: • Book Review • Story Setting Analysis • Story elements you may have missed as we decipher the novel • Summary of the text, with some analytical comments interspersed • Thought Provoking /or Discussion Questions for both Readers & Book Clubs • Discussion & Analysis of Themes, Symbols… • And Much More! This Analysis fills the gap, making you understand more while enhancing your reading experience.
