Very disappointed with not only the content but the reading of it. The book follows the trials & tribulations of a person condemed to die but later found innocent, not a topic I expected from a John Grisham book. Hopefully he will stick to fiction rather than telling a story out of the local/national headlines.
I have read every book by John Grisham, and have enjoyed them all until this one. It is indeed a tale of injustice, but I didn't find the main character or his life very interesting...just pathetic...one sorry circumstance after another. I think the author could have found a more worth-while character to write about. It was hard to find any sympathy for the main character, and the book seemed to drag on and on. It was a relief when it was over.
This is the most boring audio book i have ever listened to. It is almost a verbatim reading of medical and police reports. There is no suspense. He should stick to fiction.
I concur with those who were disappointed with The Innocent Man. What a letdown. I haven't read anything this dry since, well, never. Next time, I'll wait for the "customer reviews."
Can you say, "Root Canal"? I'd rather go to the dentist for a root canal than listen to this book again! If you are taking a course in criminal justice, perhaps this would be a good book to read about the flaws in our criminal system. Otherwise, get the root canal first. It will be more enjoyable. Oh, by the way, I'm a huge fan of John Grisham -- but John, stay away from non-fiction.
I'm three hours into this novel and totally bored. Grisham rambles on and on about a kid who can't make it in the big leagues, and cops who can't find their buttocks with both hands. I give up, no more JG novels for me, he has lost his touch.
Dont waiste your money. I love John Grisham, but this book is so boring. I listened to the whole thing, hoping it would get better, but it didnt. I may not buy another John Grisham book out of fear it will be like this one. WOW! How it got published it beyond me. Must be that he has a "name"
