A good read that does not disappoint the Grisham fans. This is not a story about an old rich guy leaving his fortune to his illegitimate daughter, but rather a story about a man finding himself through sorrow and despair of a life squandered. I learned to like Nate and felt that he was on a new path. I found myself praying for his good fortune and broken hearted at his losses.
You never have to wait for anything if you bring a good book.
I've read lots of John Grisham stories, but this is the first one I've read where religious devotion and conversion is such a major component. It's definitely not for me so I'll be getting a refund on this one.
Frank Muller is the absolute worst reader that Audible has used. Grisham's books are usually read by Michael Beck, and he is a super star. Love John Grisham and his body of work.
NO...his voice is irritating.
On a scale of one to ten, I would rate it a 7. Would have been higher, but the ending was awful.
I really enjoyed this book until the end. It just ended, and it left me high and dry. I felt like there were a lot of ties that needed to be tied.
It seemed to be a pretty good story
did not get that far
He could not stay in charactor. He used the same voice as a the charactor that committed suicide eary in the book...........very distracting
Would not recommend
The story itself is a problem. JG is usually a reliable readable/listenable choice, but I found the basic story quite dull and hated all the constant pious god references. I also struggled with the narration, the pace was off and the intonation distracting. For some reason the voice artist has chosen to affect a pseudo-batman whisper at the end of ever sentence. It's clearly doesn't come naturally as it doesn't occur during long runs of dialogue and is unbelievably irritating and distracting. I couldn't even finish the book.
Poorly. Narration and Story are weak.
Sadly, no. I found the forced growly tone awful.
After the initial (and actually fairly predictable) twist, I was just kind of bored.
this is the third time i've listioned , and everytime it gets better. i get more involved in it and savore every moment of the story,
his great read and expession in his voice.
yes, but i only listen when im on at least a three hour dive.
john , was at his best on this one.. hope he does more of this type of story.
I prefer audio. If the narrator is good, it brings the book alive.
No, but love his voice.
I love the whole book.
Sad and happy ending.
This was a relatively quick read. It got a bit bogged down in the jungle, but other than that the premise was pretty decent. I read Grisham for courtroom drama, and this book was short on that.
The narrator got a bit annoying. He is very breathy at the end of pretty much every sentence and at times I just get fed up with that.
Still, not a waste of a credit.
