Great story with as many twists and turns as the rivers in Brazil that the main character must travel to find himself. More than just a legal novel that Grisham is known for. I highly recommend listening to his brilliantly narrated story.
Good narration and good plot, but lacked emotion. I struggle to find great highs and lows or unexpected revelations. It drones on in parts that don't even really support the plot.
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.
