This is one of my favorite audio books of all time. Frank Muller does a masterful job with this narration.
I have already listened to this twice!
It was well done and the reading was excellent.
The movie sucked compared to the book but, oh well.
Another well done book by Mr. Grisham.
For all of the concentration on the jury, that is the focus of the plot of course, it's not much of a courtroom book since it deals more with the machinations of the guy who has inserted himself on to the jury.
The story itself isn't very plausible, and you wind up with a plot that works too seamlessly to be believable.
And through all of that, Grisham still did a poor job of convincing the reader why people shouldn't be responsible for their own actions.
Recently I 'read' Mr. Grisham's latest book, The Whistleblower, and was so disappointed that my review asked "who wrote this?"
I wanted so badly to have a Grisham tale that was well written - tightly woven together, a storyline that was believable, rich characters and a genius plot. I knew most of his earlier books had that, so I listened to Runaway Jury again. I have both read and listened to this book many times since it was first published, and find it incredibly nuanced each time.
And then there is the greatest narrator of all time; the late Frank Mueller. RIP, Frank.
THIS Grisham story will not disappoint you. It is one of the reasons Mr. Grisham became a household name.
I love a good clean, edge of your seat, mystery.
Yes, maybe later down the road, if there's nothing else in my library. I must admit, I didn't listen as close as I could have, so I would need to place more concentration on the book. It didn't really hold my attention.
I had just finished another narrated by Frank Muller, and it was SOOO GOOD! So I turned right around and downloaded this one, but, sorry to say, was not nearly as good.
When, Frank said " we hope you've enjoyed this production"
Skip this book and try another.
Listens to whatever keeps me thrilled, and then surprise the living life out of me :)
This book was brought to life by the great performance of Frank... It goes without saying that John Grisham never dissappoints, though I have to say it's not his best but I can't all be gold, right?
Love my family...along with guitars, road bikes, cameras, and a good book!
While The Runaway Jury is a very good book, it just didn't have the exciting plot lines that most Grisham books have for me. The story was quite predictable, and, well, a little dry. Frank Muller did his best to infuse life and energy into the book, and I could listen to him read anything, but this one just wasn't up to the usual standards that I am accustomed to from Grisham.
