It’s January Book Club day! 🙂
It’s a really short (really short) list this month – only 2 books.
I don’t know why I wasn’t able to read more this month. I really tried too!
Meet Ove. He’s a curmudgeon—the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him “the bitter neighbor from hell.
This book was a pick for my in real life book club.
I was unsure about it for a really long time. Actually for most of the book I was unsure about it.
But despite the fact that I didn’t like it for about 85% of the time, it did turn out. and I’m glad I read it.
But if it’s on your list to read, it’s weird for a long time.
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 . . .
I was never a huge John Grisham fan but thought this book looked interesting.
I thought it was a good book and a totally different read for me. John Grisham is a really good writer and I liked how well written the book was.
The beginning of the story was good for me but the ending was a little blah. Didn’t love the ending.
If you like John Grisham though, you’ll enjoy this book for sure!
