I am a huge John Grisham fan and have enjoyed all his books. This one was OK but it was certainly not the kind of story that I grown to expect. I am disappointed. Let me go find a biography or something to read that will keep me more engaged.
John Grisham poorest effort is still better than most others. I wouldn't say don't read it. Just don't get your hopes up.
No. Let it die.
This was so boring; I can't believe it was a John Grisham book! At times I felt like i was reading a book by Janet Evanovich; it was THAT light weight and almost cartoonish. It seems like Grisham has run out of steam.
This book is still worth listening to, however it isn't one of John Grisham's best. The unabridged edition was rather dragging for the first 20 chapters or so then it started to pick up some. I have listened to all of John's books and this one is only worth the freebie if you get them.
I am an audiophile and enjoy audible on my iphone while driving to and from work.
There were a few spots that were very funny, but otherwise the book seemed tame for John Grisham. There were no characters that you just loved or hated. The story was a bit weak and expected with very few surprises. I am an ardent fan of Grisham's work, but this one seemed to be off the mark.
This book gave a lot of legal detail and jargon, I got lost in it. But for someone who likes detail descriptions they would enjoy it.
I enjoyed the ending and did listen to the whole book, but it seemed to take a long time getting there.
Yes, I listen to a lot of Grisham. This particular title just didn't keep me involved.
The old woman, who comes into the bar??? I don't remember even what that had to do with the rest of the scene. The
Not a JG's best. I took a while for the story to pick up and when it started getting exciting it ended. It felt like a lot of fluff to make the book achieve a certain number of pages. I gave it a 3 stars because it was passable, meaning, as a discounted book it was fine but I would definitly vote against paying full price for it.

The topic of home foreclosures is hot. Grisham nailed it. True to actual conditions today.
A little let down...........not bad.....just not up to his usually great work..got a little bored.......story took way too long to get to the point
This Grisham book lacked the intrigue to pull you into the plot, much more of a human interest narrative than his normal style.
