At first I did not believe I would like the story, you may feel that way too, but give it a chance. It quickly becomes addicting and leaves you smiling. I look forward to the second book and even look forward to hearing the author reading it. The author is the narrator and I'm still not convinced that was smart on his side. At first it sounded as if the narrator was speaking too far from the microphone or that the sound quality was off, but I learned to ignore this and enjoy the book. I hope you will too.
I am an avid eclectic reader.
Richard Thomas did a great job reading this story. I have not cared to much for some of John Grisham's most recent books but this one was great. I noted it was for children but adults will enjoy it. Other than the hero being a 12 year old the story is much more an adult story than what I think of as a child's book. Could not stop listening.
