I like a lot of Grisham's novels, but he often comes up short on his endings. This is one, in my opinion, though, many people may like it. Neat story, but one too many twists for me!
I enjoyed the book, the narrator did an excellent job. The reason I gave 2 stars on the performance is because in several places the narration would repeat itself where there was obviously a splice in the recording.
Meh... it is a passable Grisham offering. I found I couldn't understand or empathize with any of the characters, though the plot did keep me going...
I enjoyed the idea about a man running away, doing a wrong thing for a right reason... but by the end of it, I just didn't care. I couldn't understand a character's motivations...
I normally like Frank Muller as a narrator, but this one was just not a strong performance, either with dialogue or emotoin.
As a movie, this book actually woudl work; if it hasn't been optioned for a movie, it should be.
I liked Grisham's earlier works - particularly "The Chamber", "The Rainmaker" and "The Runaway Jury"; I like Muller's performances in "The Rainmaker", as well as other offerings... unfortunately "The Partner" does not hold up to other books I have listened to.
Enjoyed the book, although the ending was somewhat predictable. Excellent narration.
Lots of action legal wise and maybe a bit the top as far as perfect planning goes, still I found that the book was hard to put down.
this is definitely among the best -- the story is excellent and I also really like Frank Muller as a narrator. I will be looking for more books read by him.
it was a mystery right up to the end! it had so many bits that would be revealed one little tidbit at a time.
he is not distracting like some of the others -- when I listen some narrators - like a woman reading in a mans voice sounds funny. and its the same for when a man is reading in a female voice. sometimes it just sounds so odd that it detracts from the story. with Frank there is a lot of variation w/ his speech patterns/tones etc from character to character and it helps the listener identify and differentiate the characters from one another.

John Grisham is one of those authors that continually makes it impossible to answer the question "Whats your favorite book by him?" This one is no exception to that. Everything that happened was a surprise! Its defiantly worth listening to... twice!
Interesting how true the old saying is…different strokes for different folks….Someone else reviewing this book commented on the narrator's 'creepy' voice, while I find the actors voice compelling and his voice acting exceptional. As a matter of fact, I plan to select all the Grishams books that are done by this actor….
I like all Grishams books…rich character development and lots of twists and turns. This particular book had a disappointing ending for me…as it was so open ended...
He does all the characters exceptionally well and goes from male to female smoothly….and convincingly….Great job!
No, too rich in detail. As a matter of fact I listened to a couple of chapters twice before proceeding to the following chapter.
I prefer more closure at the end of a novel. A great ending would have earned the book 5 stars.
This one will keep you guessing all the way to the end. Once you get into it you will not want to stop until the end. The story is one of those that leaves you wanting more.
This is a great way to pass the miles.
If he had never written it
The perfprmance of fine considering what he had to work with
All of them
