Yes. I listen to many audiobooks and rarely get to the end of one. This story at least maintained my interest until the end.
good, no shocking twists but good enough
Yes, the narration was engaging.
If I could've listened to it in one sitting, I would have. I was so into the story that I hated to stop it. In the end, I listened to it in two sittings and it took me back to Grisham's early books that I loved so much. Nobody writes legal thrillers like he does and I couldn't get enough of it! The narrator did an excellent job, but it was over much too soon.
Grisham does it again!
Grisham did a masterful job of character development and the reader did a wonderful job of depicting each.
Worth the time
Not so much.
i enjoyed it but did not have an extreme reaction
Great surprise. It saved the book.
Emotion for each character.
John Grisham is as predictable as a Walt Disney movie.
I very much liked the story, where one could "do the right thing and the money would follow." But I think the character of David Zinc could be developed further - he is a little bit single dimensioned. And the character of Nadine Karros, a leading defense attorney, was a disaster. No one would have ever believed that she is a competent attorney except to take John Grisham's word for it. The repeated mentioning of her legs was just insulting. I think any female reader would be offended by the poor writing of this character despite a good book overall.
Yes. The pace was perfect.
Maybe. I don't think this is a big screen movie, but I will definitely order the DVD.
Although serious, I couldn't help but laugh at some of the characters situations and comments
Grisham's legal novels have come to be standard fare on my reading menu, when they come around every year or so. I expect a well laid out story with impeccable use of language throughout. Not too exciting, not too complicated, and generally not too many surprises. This story fall right into step with many of his others. However, it is written well enough that it engages the reader and certainly was not a waste of time. I listened to this book while travelling for about 12 hours and it filled the time nicely. Nothing too memorable in the long term, but certainly an entertaining read/listen.
