Yes, it is the accent and humour in the voice of the reader that makes the book.
I am a retired Child Psychologist who delights in her three grandchildren to whom I passed on the love of reading. They read vociferously.
It made me laugh. It made the laws that rule our country seem somewhat sordid.
Add more depth to the characters.
The accents and dialects
Grisham is a favorite and I will continue to read him.
I am a huge Grisham fan and I have read or listened to all of his books. While I liked this one, I found it to be very similar to his book
Grisham's early novels were carefully crafted and very entertaining. However, his more recent tries have not had the same quality in my opinion. Lame plot and predictable ending.
I enjoyed the pace and tone of this taped edition. The time flew and I enjoyed listening to all portions (beginning, middle and end).
In retrospect I would have rather re-listened to The Client or The Firm. But if you like the standard Grisham approach (young lawyer against all odds, with lots of "Inside Baseball" lawyering info) then this will work for you. Narrator was good.
This book kept me reading, non-stop. The story pits greed against social justice . Although it is fiction, I learned a lot about the murky world of pharmaceutical drug trials. I will want to read this book again at a later time.

John Grisham has delivered a fun read with The Litigators. I found the tone to be similar to The Testament, an earlier work by JG. Though not straight comedy there are several part that made me chuckle or just smile. I'll probably not listen to it again because of knowing the payoff but I do recommend the book.
Character development again reminded me of The Testament. Memorable characters that you quickly begin to care about.
The narrator's performance was better than average though I'd have liked more distinct voices for the characters.
If you like John Grisham you'll enjoy this book. I hadn't planned to listen to it all so quickly but I got hooked and simply went along for a fun ride.
This is one of the few audiobooks that had me looking forward to my commute home at night and not minding the traffic delays. A great and entertaining story.
