I only wish the audible presentation came across a little louder over the speakers in the pickup. My husband and I enjoy listening to audible books while we are traveling for his job.

I am such a big fan of John Grisham. This novel makes me feel the unfairness of the death penalty even for a killer
This book was way too long and really drags on...might be better abriged version as the story was solid but never really developed.
This book was somewhat hard to listen to toward the end. I kept turning it off as the end got closer and closer. It covers a very hard subject and explores all the issues having to do with the death sentence. It was moving and full of passion and honesty but still difficult to listen to as the issue is so profound.
I have listened to many Grisham novels. This and the Last Juror are my favorites. This is gripping, heart felt and emotionally very complex. As usual John Grisham does a masterful job of exploring his characters, the south, and racism.
The detail Grisham typically brings to his books add meaning and context. In this case, however, the book is comprised of nothing but superflous detail. There is no story, it flails with no sense purpose around the issue of the death sentence and the circumstances stretch credibility. Boring and irrelevant.
Depressing, morbid ,The story of a kIller who deserves to die in The gas chamber,and the delaying tactics of his just found grandson lawyer. It too long, the story protrays this killer as a good guy who finally repents all his killing and finds God. I love Grisham and have read all his books .This falls way below his normal ability. I would not recommend This book and I am sorry I bought it.
I loved this book. Great writers and the speakers did a fabulous job. Definately recommend to read!
