Had a difficult time turning off my iPod and getting to work! Ready for the next Grisham Novel.
I enjoyed the particulars through this book but about mid way I was able to guess how things would turn out. Including the end. I felt that was just another cheap predictable ending. Still a enjoyable listen.
I always enjoy books by Grisham and this was no exception. However during the first chapter I wasn't sure if I could stand the narrator enough to continue listening. He sounded like a breathless school girl telling secrets on the playground. VERY ANNOYING. His mispronunciation of Biloxi(I lived there years ago) did not annoy me as much as his mispronunciation of Lake Ponchatrain.One other note: I agree that the ending was quite predictable three quarters thru the book.
Typical John Grisham. His books always move very quickly and this book is no exception. Enjoyable listen, however I am partial to Grisham books.
This has always been my favorite book by Grisham, and was not at all dissapointing in audiobook form. Great story with interseting characters and an interesting ending. The narrator is not one of my favorites, but is solid and takes nothing away from this excellent story.
Although not as much thrilling action as I was expecting, the twists and turns and complexities of this plot kept me listening almost non-stop. Even when you think it's over...it's not! It kept surprising me right up until the end.
I'm not usually a huge John Grisham fan, but I was looking for somthing different to keep my attention for a long trip. The narrator is fabulous and very easy to listen to. The characters are phenomonal and very likable. Just when you think you've heard it all, Patrick Lanigan comes up with more twists. The last few hours were slightly drawn out, but not painfully so. I had guessed the ending, but hoped I wasn't right! Worth the listen and drawing your own conclusion about the ending!
I have to agree with the other negative reviewer. The narrator is terrible. It sounds like he just took a jog around the block, he breathes so heavy. And he ends every statement with an inflection as if it were a question. It was so distracting through the first half of the book that I had a hard time following the story. But by the second part I was hooked enough that I could tune out the annoying breathing. It really is a shame because it isn't a bad book, although the ending is rushed and more predictable than the other reviews left me to believe it would be. Find this book with a different narrator and I'd give it four stars instead of two.
I wont give away the end but about time. I have read or listened to about every Grisham book. He is not my favorite writer but I read his stuff. I usually get a little bored after predicting the books. yes I predicted the end but I loved it. I loved the characters, the plot, the theme, and adored the end. I laughed and laughed and want to repeat this book in real life.
