I finished reading this, and by reading I mean listening to audio CDs in my car, and I was fairly disappointed. Grisham and Crichton were always my favorite two writers, but Grisham has steadily gotten worse in my mind. The Appeal was just shameless in its tone and story.

The Associate was averge at best, featuring a decent lead character and some colorful side characters. But nothing much happens in this book, and the ending followed that line. I kept waiting for something to pop out, and it never did.

In the end, I'd recommend skipping this book, at least until it comes out in paperback...maybe not even then.

I enjoyed The Associate, but I don't believe I've ever read a Grisham novel in which the ending of the story didn't completely blow. I'm fine with books that don't end on a happy note, but IMO his novels always seem to end in such a depressing and abrupt manner.

I am perpetually puzzled by the Cable & Deadpool combination. How much of a crossover audience can the two possibly have, even given the constraints of the comic book reader community?
