The story seemed to drag on for the first 5 hours however it finally picked up and became a grisham novel I may have expected more than I should have and I especially thought I would get more from the fact that a professional reader was presenting the novel. I didn't go to sleep so that fact gives merit to the read. My wife and I almost didn't finish the book halfway into it due to boredom but persisted on and found it to be satisfactory .I think maybe , I expected more than I should have .
SOME kind of drama in the story would have helped - there was absolutely none.
Not if they're anything like this one.
Probably a great narrator for a different kind of book, but I think he may have contributed to a lack of gravity in this book. I sure do miss Frank Muller!
Nothing stood out as particularly bad, there just wasn't anything that was particularly good.
I recall really enjoying Grisham's previous works immensely. They always managed to get me emotionally involved - emotionally wrapped up in what happened to a particular character.Part of the way through this story, I realized something was really missing. There was just no emotional involvement. I could've put the book away at any point and never really wondered what the outcome would be. Sure, it's a vaguely interesting legal story as some reviewers have mentioned, but certainly no more so than a mediocre TV episode of something like Law & Order.
Yes, a bit of a departure from the usual Grisham, more colorful characters.
Publishers must have pushed near the end as the storylines wrap up rather fast, seems there was an opportunity for some more fun with these characters. However deadlines are deadlines.
Good performance though an occassional character voice confusion.
sadly i am not a movie producer so not a clue.
This was such a great book, I didn't want to get out of my car when I got to my destination. I also found myself going places I didn't have to go, just so I could listen to the book.
The good guys won.
Excellent voice that made you want to like the characters.
Excellent legal thriller, with twists, problems, unexpected events----but the good guy wins in the end. My kind of book.
I have gotten away from JGs work of late having found it pushed and not anywhere near the excellence of his original novels. I read the reviews and thought this one sounded like he might have returned to previous levels, but that sadly is not the case. I enjoyed parts and the reader, but the story does not drive forward and has multiple digressions that just are not important.
I would not suggest wasting the credit on this mediocre tale. Chuck
I liked the personalities of the characters.
I found the story too long and a bit tedious. It was too easy to predict the ending.
Wally - very dimensional character.
I could have... However I enjoy listening to audio books on my commute to work - this book was fun to listen to and made my drive time more enjoyable.
enjoyed the story and got connected to the characters.
I felt that Dennis Boutsikaris did a great job of narrating however sounded like he was from the east coast not Chicago. I live near Chicago and the Region has a distinct sound. didn't convince me of the location.
I appreciated the level of humor and drama. The characters were somewhat clichéd - really good and really bad lawyers. The story had a stereotypical happy ending with all the loose ends tied up neatly. Overall I found it entertaining and enjoyable. The performance, however, was outstanding and it more than made up for what the story lacked.
Some of the 'bad' lawyers were funny.
When the lawyer shot the thug in both legs without a bit of remorse.
No - it was best spaced out over 2-3 listens.
I am not a proliffic listener but when I drive for any length of time, I want to listen to a book. This book is on the top of my list.
Not Bad, But bit predictable.
The characters where interesting but none jumped out at you.
I enjoyed the readers style. There was subtle voice changes for the characters, so not suprised that some reviews didn't pick them up.
I wanted to keep listening and the story was good, but as my first Grisham Audiobook, was expect a major twist that, I guess was suggested at a point but didn't go anywhere, as a few of the areas that were looked didn't see to be continued
Good read and hasn't turned me off checking out other Grisham books. Perhaps being more from his movies, I am expecting too much.
