I didn't read the print edition.
Josh, because of the way he turned his life around.
I felt that it took until chapter 19 for Frank Muller to get into character with his voice. The first 18 chapters he seemed to hiss at the end of every sentence. He was monotone and I was annoyed after listening for sometime. I am sooooo glad that the last part of the book he had some excitement, voice changes, and inflection to his voice. It made the story so much better.
When Josh felt Rachel in his hospital room and again when he was in the church praying.
I was hoping that the ending would be more storybook like. All in all, I really enjoyed the story with all the adventure and the twists and turns.
If I had not read enough Grisham to expect a darn good story I would have given up and stopped reading. But once he gets going with the main plot, it's as gripping as can be. Good values. A bit too much religion for some, but I like those values too.
Love my family...along with guitars, road bikes, cameras, and a good book!
I truly feel as if this is one of Grisham's best novels. Most of his books rely so much on the law, and the courtroom proceedings to carry them (and I do not mind that, by the way), but this story held it's own strictly on it's own merits. The interaction between the characters, and the deep introspection and evolution of the protagonist is so masterfully portrayed. I simply could not stop listening. Frank Muller is a wonderful narrator, especially when he can sink his teeth into such great material.
I just achieved App Master!! I never thought I would make it this far!! Thanks Audible
I can't say enough about this book and it was hard to put down. You have Trot Fellen a billionaire father of seven that died and leaves his estate to one child. I won't tell you which one but she has a drunk that is fresh out of rehab lawyer on her side and together she will change many life's!!! On the other hand her six brothers and sisters will try everything to stop her and the money from escaped from their reach. Must read!!!
The narrator is completely over dramatic, drawing out the end of every sentence giving it the feeling of a b-movie horror show, and this despite that this book contains absolutely zero thrills. Heck, it barely boasts a plot! I kept thinking there MUST be a point to all this, but as the hours continued to whittle down I realized that in face nothing is going to happen. So boring. So disappointing.
It was so slow. I should have turned it back in but I was headed out of town and needed to pass the time with an audiobook. I was hoping this release would be another Sycamore Row and was very disappointed. The pace and the author's voice about put me to sleep
It was good at times but difficult to distinguish between characters.
I applaud John Grisham for weaving God into his novels and for leaving out the sex and foul language but this wasn't one of his best.
It's in about the middle of the pack. It's not the best John Grisham book I've ever read.
Didn't expect the ending.
After I read two great books by John Grisham (The Litigators and The King of Torts), once again I’m deeply disappointed by another of his books, this time being The Testament.
I don’t understand why being one of the best storytellers I’ve read, Grisham does not know how to close a good story. If I wanted a more elaborate book, I would not try to find it in the legal thriller genre.
So enough of trying to find a good and enjoyable book by this author! Don’t waste your credit unless you are a big Grisham fan
