I would recommend the book because it is paced properly for relaxed consumption. Good vacation book.
It compares favorably. I listen to a lot of books, and this one opened my eyes to the plight of the homeless.
I loved Mordecai...smart, brash, yet kind-hearted with the ability to judge character.
It made me sad at times about the human soul-our greed and selfishness. Yet some people care enough to devote their life's work to others...that made me smile.
The next time a homeless person asks you for the dollar that you can afford to spare, don't judge, don't second guess, just give it up!
I think I have loved everything that Grisham has ever written and Frank Muller is one of my favorite narrators. The two came together to tell a wonderful, moving story.
Realistic? Uh, no. This one was so entirely slanted, I could barely endure finishing it (just a personal weakness: I finish the ones I don't care for, because I hope for a bit of redemption).
Whenever anyone who worked for a living appeared on the scene, they virtually grew horns and became the spawn of Satan.
Example: The protagonist is walking down the street and sees a shocking headline on a newspaper. He grabs the top paper and it falls apart, scattering on the street. The newsstand attendant sternly asks, "Are you going to PAY for that?" Okay, the written word doesn't do it justice; you gotta hear this part.
A huge double standard arises with law enforcement. In one chapter, Grisham (inaccurately) portrays the brute cops as Nazis sweeping the streets of defenseless, innocent homeless. In another chapter, he slams police for failing to enforce laws against homeless sleeping in areas where they might be harmed by the elements.
Grisham's gotten lazy. He needs to do a bit of research...well-rounded research. Yes, spend some time in a homeless shelter, but spend some time in a black and white, too. Find out the whole story. I've been around the judicial system for decades, Pal, and I've seen a whole lot more charitable giving from the law enforcers than I have from defense lawyers.
Educational and inspirational glimpse of an unknown side of "Human" law practice. Heart rendering review of the fight for an often forgotten class of Americans, in need of a voice. Bravo!
Captured my interest from the very start however the voice and inflections seemed off to me but I can't put my finger on it. Didn't sound like a 30 something voice I guess. Still, I was kept interested by the street lawyer office scenario and Mr. Green. He kept if going for me and the litigation was somewhat exciting and fulfilling.
I enjoy anything about orthodox christanity novels, biographies and history as it relates to christianity.I also enjoyJohn Grisham type nov
This is my second reading I enjoyed it as much as the first.
Frank Muller brilliant work is breathtaking. I highly recommend this piece of work.
