  • "Theordore Boone: Kid Lawyer"

    Overall

    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.

    In the small city of Strattenburg, there are many lawyers, and though he’s only 13 years old, Theo Boone thinks he’s one of them. Theo knows every judge, policeman, court clerk—and a lot about the law. He dreams of being a great trial lawyer, of a life in the courtroom. But Theo finds himself in court much sooner than expected. Because he knows so much—maybe too much—he is suddenly dragged into the middle of a sensational murder trial.

    Story

    What a delightful short story. This story is aimed at children but adults will enjoy it also. As with all Alexander McCall Smith this story has a moral lesson, I wished more authors would also provide moral and or ethical lessons/problems in their stories. I felt as if I was in Botswana while reading this story, I could almost hear, feel and smell the sounds of the village and school. Adjoa Andoh did a great job narrating the story her accent and rhythm of speaking sounded like the region of Africa. I have both read and listen to Smith books and because of the difficult words such as the names I would rather listen to the reader roll their R's. Lisette LeCat narrated the other books but I think Andoh sounds younger but the accent is the same. Because this book was for children the reader also slowly did the pronunciation of the names which I thought was great.

    Story

    I enjoyed the first book in this series Theodore Boone: The Kid Lawyer so decided to listen to this one also. Glad I did. Richard Thomas does a good job narrating the story. This story is advertised for children but adults will enjoy it also. It is a short story that leaves one feeling good. It is nice to see a 13 year old with such a focus on what he wants to do with his life. Enjoyed the scenes in animal court in both books. This one particularly was funny. You will enjoy this book for a 4 hour trip with the family.

    What made the experience of listening to The Wizard of Dark Street the most enjoyable?

    Most of the time I don't care for the author narrating their own books. However, I can't imagine anyone else reading The Wizard of Dark Street. I had a slight problem getting into the story but never considered not listening to the book because of Shawn Thomas Odyssey's narration. His reading of this book is delightful. I couldn't stop listening to his lilting voice and telling of this tale. He brought the characters to life like nobody else could have. Once the story was set up, I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next. I highly recommend this book for adults who like books such as the Harry Potter series as well as young listeners.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Oona. She had so many layers and such enthusiasm for life. I also enjoyed Adler very much. He had heart and character and the accent used by Shawn Thomas Odyssey for him was always fun to hear.


    What about Shawn Thomas Odyssey’s performance did you like?

    His delightful accents and bringing the characters to life.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!
