Andy, the main character, has a realistic view of himself as the plot moves along. He provides a good sense of the world of attorneys while he struggles to find out whether or not his client is innocent. The narrator clearly is a master at his job. His characters are easily distinguished and you're fully concerned with the outcomes of their lives. This is a very humorous novel and well worth the 6 1/2 hours you need to hear the book in its entirety.
I really enjoyed this book and I found I couldn't stop listening even after I had finished my drive. The story was great as was the humor. Grover does an excellent job of narration.
I'm onto his second in the series now.
You know, it's not the most mysterious mystery, and it's not a deep book. But the main character is funny, and the book's read well.
A great throwaway summer read!
This series is just wonderful - incredible wit, superb dialog and the narration is perfection.
Although I read them out of order, it doesn't matter - each one stands alone very well.
I really enjoy this author... I wish the books were longer though. Andy Carpenter his very witty and self deprecating which makes the books very entertaining... Looking forward to more...
Where have I been that I haven't heard of this author before? I love the slightly sarcastic attitude of the main character. He is funny, smart, and a bit of a wise guy. The narration is excellent. I will definitely get another in this series.
I had never listened to a Rosenfelt book; however, this one was on sale so I gave it a try. I listened to about 1/3 of the book and just could not make myself finish it. It was not worth even the sale price.
I listened to this 2 weeks ago and I had to think hard to remember it. When I did I was thankful that I did not actually pay for it, I got it with green stamps. At times I thought the book might have been written by a kid in high school.
I read this after book #8 of this series, and am glad that while it cleared up some finer points of the 8th book, no harm was done to my enjoyment through reading them out of order.
The protagonist Andy Carpenter is a dog-loving attorney with enough self-deprecating humour that I can forgive him living in a world without all the niggling problems we mere mortals encounter everyday. Then he inherits 22 million $. Thankfully he puts his money to good use to help unfortunate victims of crime.
The who-dunnit part is interesting but not terribly surprising, which doesn't bother me as I listen to books more to have a glimpse into other people's life than to give my brain a work-out.
I really enjoyed this novel. Rosenfelt's sense of humor and well developed characters along with an interesting series of plot twists made this a real pleasure.
Grover Gardner's narration had me laughing out loud on several occasions. My only complaint was that at 6+ hours this is much too short for my credit, stingy as I am to spend them.
Highly recommended although brief.
