Michael Beck is the best narrator I've heard in a long time. Very enjoyable.
J. Grisham, once again, seems to have run out of enthusiasm for his story towards the end. I enjoyed the first part.
Fascinating story...if you believe in the death penalty, Grisham tells a compelling tale that may change your mind...and in the process, he creates a character who experiences redemption.
I picked this as a filler while waiting for some new releases. This was well done and had plenty of twists and turns that I did not foresee. The characters were strong Adam the grandson and Sam the death row inmate grandfather. Forgiveness for some horrible crimes was the center of this story for me. I especially appreciate the pastoral consultations the inmate received. It was very candid and biblically realistic. The performance was good - I had recently listed to Sycamore Row by the same author and narrator.
I will have to say the ending left me unfulfilled. Maybe I wanted him to do more -- and will leave at that so no spoiler.
Right at the top
I loved the performance it kept me on the edge of my seat!!
I would not consider it better, simply more convenient.
The subject matter (the death penalty) evokes strong opinions from most people. Going in, I had my beliefs on the matter, however, the skillful rendering of the story challenged my beliefs at various points. I believe a good story should challenge your preconceived notions on a topic.
Michael Beck's characterizations were done so well, I often forgot there was just one narrator.
Yes, but other obligations prevented listening to it all at once.
one of the best books I have listened to, I enjoyed it alot. A very good performance.
very realistic and good research
much better than the movie
