The book was great and held my interest. The surprise ending was a shocker Looking forward to more books by John Grisham. All I've read have exceeded my expectations
Frank mueller narrated it very well .
My favorite narrator! Such talent!
This story was so much more than I expected! After being disappointed by a recent John Grisham book, I was just going to listen to this one because my toddler accidentally purchased it. I'm so glad I listened! I was pleased to find a great story line and shocked to find a Christian thread beneath it all! Don't miss this book!
This novel was not what I expected at all, as it wasn't particularly tense or suspenseful. I did enjoy the story, and it was interesting to learn about a remote area of Brazil. Other than the main character, a likeable alcoholic lawyer who is trying to stay sober, there isn't much character development. Religion plays a big role in influencing the main character, and the novel seems to have a 'mission' to promote Chistianity. Women have only small roles in the book, and the only woman who wasn't portrayed as unlikeable, was portrayed as a perfect Christian saint - a Mother Teresa.The narrator was okay, but it frequently seemed like his tone was that of someone telling a secret instead of just reading a story. All in all, I'd say it was a bit predictable, but a pleasant listen.
This lacked an engaging storyline. I was eager after the first chapter but the storyline failed to launch after that. Character development lacked. There was little suspense. I was tempted to just skip to them end to hear what happened. Instead- I stuck with every unnecessary detail to get to the end. I had high expectations. I'd skip this one and go for The Juror or The Partner.
I've listened to this one again and again. John Grisham wrote a great story and Frank Muller performs its masterfully.
