Refueled my interest in legal thrillers.
Pleasant, engaging, and interesting story because he relies on practical imagination sans profanity.
I am listening to this book in my car while driving to work. It makes my drive a lot more enjoyable.
It was a great story that kept me guessing where the story was going.
I had to write a review on this book! This was one of John Grisham's excellent reads. From beginning to end, the story unwinds, twists, yet easy to following and kept me hanging on throughout. I loved the Narrator too.
I listen to audiobooks when I drive. I like ones that are easy to follow so I can also pay attention to the read and which make the trip goes faster. The Racketeer was both. It was a very interesting story about the abuses of the federal legal system. I highly recommend it.
Maybe a few years down the line
Yes it did
The racketeer himself!
Yes, when the Russian's story is revealed, as to why he is seeking revenge.
A good read. Very powerful, and moving.
A more enthusiastic and interesting narrator.
It is difficult to say. Perhaps I will try reading the book to get a better grasp on the story. The narrator threw me off.
I did not care for J.D.Jackson as a narrator and while he is highly recommended, I could not concentrate on the story. I will have to read the book before I can fairly critic it.
It is not fair for me to say until I try reading the book instead of listening to it.
I usually enjoy books by John Grisham. The story line seemed to be a good one
Yes.. Grisham always has solid characters who are very believeable. Story was a littale far fetched and ended kind of abruptly.
Well. Performance was good.
I kept waiting for the Grisham suspense, the appearance of the Bad Guys, something to go terribly wrong, then get even worse, and finally the protagonist to scheme, trick, and blast his way through to get the fortune back, take revenge on the double-crosser, and ride into the sunset. Well, it never happened. There were some points in the story where the author built a little suspense, maybe a "4" on a scale of 10, but things just kept plodding along and the suspense faded away. Every single thing went exactly as planned. Forget whether the story was believable - other Grisham stories have stretched credibility - it was just boring. The narrator was fine, I don't think it was his fault that the story itself was a monotone.
I normally don't find the "formula" style of authors like Grisham to be very satisfying, but The Racketeer is an exception. It was a fun listen, improbable...but fun. There is a strong denial of reality in this book, but Grisham manages to keep your attention with enough twists and turns and surprises. I found myself smiling frequently at the sheer audacity of some of the dialgue and events. If you're looking for suspenseful escape this book will fill the bill.
Listening to audiobooks is a guilty pleasure. I travel a lot so listen to about four per monthly. Biographies are a favorite.
Fun, compelling, intriguing
Yes - so glad it didn't go down the road I thought (off the rails.)
Great protagonist. Rooted for him the entire time. One of John Grisham's best IMHO.
