This book is fascinating. You will spend so much time considering "Is Jacob guilty?" "Is his father blind to him?" "Who has their story right?" "What causes a person to kill?" There is so much depth here. I very much enjoyed the story and the narration here is good. The narrator reminded me of what a Connecticut lawyer would probably sound like. That is a good thing. A have a friend who read this book and found it very depressing. So, be warned, this is a difficult topic, particularly for parents.
Didn't really care for the ending.
I don't think I should base his performance on this book.
One of the best books I've listened to.
The father's undying devotion is memorable.
His voice was a little high pitched for my taste at first, but after a few minutes, he had my complete attention and respect.
Sins of the Fathers
The story kept you guessing from start to finish.
He was believable as several characters.
Yes, but that's impossible.
The story is an interesting one and I like the way it was done with the grand jury. The plot does a nice job of keeping you wondering about Jacob's guilt or innocence. The reader did a great job of bringing life to the characters.
I really loved the book. Didn't want it to end where it did!! It would have gotten a 5 except for ending!
Yes, I would definitely listen to this again
I loved the twists and turns in the plot. It will keep you guessing right up to the end. A great read for a book club with lots of discussion about ethics.
Billy Barber was definitely the most memorable.
Say something about yourself!
This book was enjoyable especially having lived in the Boston area it was interesting to understand Massachusetts law to a certain degree. The narrator did a nice job and should be considered for future books.
I would NOT listen to this novel again. Why? It is truly one of the most disturbing books I've ever read. Would I recommend it? You bet!
This book reminded me of Presumed Innocent. An ending I didn't see coming. Shocking!
At first I didn't like the narrator. I almost stopped listening. Don't stop! It's a disturbing book with disturbing characters and he brings them alive.
A movie is being made of this book next year. I hope they do it justice.
Having it work properly would help, some where in chapter 4 it jumps to chapter 20. You also can not fast-foward with out it jumping to Chapter 20.
I don't know have not finished the book
Pleas fix this
