This is a very good listen. Of course the book has more details than the movie of the same name and listening to the book after seeing the movie (some time ago), helped me to visualize the scenes better. I liked the way Grisham had the mystery girl just kinda appear out of nowhere to the surprise of those watching for her and how the mystery girl and the obvious deceptive juror was able to "make things happen" that kept the defense director, Finch, on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Narrator, Frank Muller did an excellent job. He performed the story. His performance helped to hold my attention over the long hours of listening. This performance moved his name up on my list of top performers!
I don't know how anyone could call this book boring. If I had not been driving while listening to this book I would have been rolling on the floor with laughter. Great book from begining to end.
This was a terrific and engrossing story that unfolded nicely. Once I got used to the way Frank Muller ended many of his sentences on a high note, I enjoyed his reading. I couldn?t wait to unravel the story each day. A couple of times I even took a quick listen when I found myself with some short waiting time. It was easy to keep this story line straight and to pick it up for short or long periods. I also had the text, and in this case the audio followed it perfectly. Sometimes I reread a chapter. I found I recalled it all, which surprised me a bit. I had thought that maybe, while driving, I might have lost focus at times and missed some of the story. I waited to finish the book before I saw the movie. I couldn?t avoid the ads, however, and immediately put the actors faces on their characters in my mind?s eye as I listed to the audio book.
Frank Muller at his level best! Download this title. The absolute pinnacle of audiobook performances! Excellent story also. It is centered around tobacco litigation and has nothing to do with guns. Hollywood liberals screwed around with the storyline for the movie version (no surprise).
If I'm not mistaken, Frank Muller won some kind of award for this narration. Highly recommended.
My favorite Grisham novels seem to be the ones where his dry sarcasm comes through. There is some of that in this book, so I enjoyed it. And even though Frank Muller isn't one of my favorite readers, his style works to bring across the dry wit and sarcasm.
This book is typical of Grisham's better novels.
Loved the tempo and the story.
The plot had some great twists.
Finch was a great vilian.
An fascinating behind the scenes look at those involved in prosecuting and defending an important trial of tobacco producers and cigarette manufacturers, and the of the jurors chosen to hear the case!
The reader Frank Muller is exceptionally good also. An excellent listen.
This is one of my favorite audio books of all time. Frank Muller does a masterful job with this narration.
