This is my fourth or fifth audio book, and I loved it, as most people mention, the narrator is great, and the story is fantastic. Would recomend.
Fun listen; however, it started dragging in the middle (just a little). The start is really entertaining. The end is a little predictable, but all in all - good. The narrator was great. I loved the way he pronounced the locations. I found myself repeating the names of the cities after the narrator said them with a heavy accent :)
I have read the The Testament many years before, to listen to it on audible was quite the experience. Without picture the listener can visual every chapter of this novel. If you have not read or listen to The Testament, you have to get a copy.
Very interesting and the narrator is excellent. I would recommend this to anyone that wants to listen nonstop, it's really hard to turn off.
truly enjoyed reading this book. The setting is fresh and intriguing. As always, Grisham's story line kept my interest with new and unexpected twists. worth reading.
I have not read a Grisham novel in a long time. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it. I especially liked learning about another culture and the effect it had on the main character. The narrator was perfect and portrayed the various characters beautifully.
This is definitely one of Grisham's best books. The unusual setting was one of the things that made it so appealing. He also created some very intriquing characters, from the elusive and mysterious missionary heiress to the crochety, old billionaire.
Grisham is able to portray realism but with the theme of redemption so often missing in contemporary novels. Such an outstanding writer. I could hardly put the book down. Thank you, Mr. Grisham.
My expectations were a little higher. I was longing for a classic southern lawyer thriller, or anything close enough. This one is not although it starts off as one. Yet it is an easy read and somewhat enjoyable.
The characters are well developed and the story is well researched. In fact, it seems to be a personal reflection of a journey of the auther to that particular area.
Expect a lot of description of this rich geographic area in the book . Yet this is not as boring as the Broker (gag...)
I was going to conclude by saying that this is not a Grisham classic but I just realized that Grisham's work has transformed itself in the past many novels to this type of work (Street lawyer, The Broker, ...)
