The Rooster Bar
By John Grisham
#1 New York Times bestselling author John Grisham’s newest legal thriller takes you inside a law firm that’s on shaky ground.
Mark, Todd, and Zola came to law school to change the world, to make it a better place. But now, as third-year students, these close friends realize they have been duped. They all borrowed heavily to attend a third-tier, for-profit law school so mediocre that its graduates rarely pass the bar exam, let alone get good jobs. And when they learn that their school is one of a chain owned by a shady New York hedge-fund operator who also happens to own a bank specializing in student loans, the three know they have been caught up in The Great Law School Scam.
But maybe there's a way out. Maybe there’s a way to escape their crushing debt, expose the bank and the scam, and make a few bucks in the process. But to do so, they would first have to quit school. And leaving law school a few short months before graduation would be completely crazy, right? Well, yes and no . . .
Pull up a stool, grab a cold one, and get ready to spend some time at The Rooster Bar.
A great read book that fills you with much emotions5By BbcutupI loved reading this book but often times hated banks and banker and loan sharks. The painted scenes would well done and kept me reading. Thank you mr Grisham
The Rooster Bar4By SPBerkoAs usual, with Grisham’s books, it’s a good read about a very interesting side of the “For Profit” Law schools.
Disappointing1By nikka23After being excited about jumping into a book that hits home for so many students I feel as if the writer got lazy with the end! It was building up wonderfully!! And when I looked down and saw I only had six pages left I knew the book would either set stage for a second book or wrap up quickly....and it just fell off...... awful
The rooster bar2By MmmooommmmmmyyySimple - even by John Grisham standards. Not a compelling Grisham book.
A very good and entertaining read.4By Paul KyleA Rooster Bar is a very good and entertaining read. I enjoyed all of the characters especially the three main ones, Mark, Todd and Zola. As they say a lot of truth in fiction and excellent relevance to todays issues: Student Debt, Value of an education, Immigration, corruption and such. It is great reinforcement to the idea that once you start lying you can never stop.
The Rooster was AWFUL1By DuddingtonIf I hadn’t bought it, I would have chucked it on page 2. Horrible plot and worse writing. Save your money and go out to dinner and order Coq au Vin!
Boring1By SkidabirdNever thought I would rate a Grisham novel boring, but OMG, this was a real struggle to read. Characters were shallow, predictable and stereotypical. Storyline was also very predictable. Nowhere near his best work.
Another great book5By Redsoxnumba1Read this over a few days, certainly enjoyed and kept me page turning
Rooster Bar2By Lou FatadoVery far fetched Not a believable story Too many liberties with reality
The Rooster Bar1By Joann MaloneI had a hard time finishing this book. It was the worse John Grisham has written. It was boring and silly. I have read all of his books and just wonder what he was smoking when he wrote this one. I am a former Legal Secretary and this one was empty of a plot.
