No, I believe reading the book would have been better. Although Mr. Jackson did a fine job, I wish they had more than one narrator.
Yes, I've read all of John Grisham's Novels. This particular one isn't my favorite, but it did keep me going. At times, I believe the story was a little unbelievable, but it is fiction. If you like John Grisham, you will not be disappointed.
Clear, smooth, monotonous.
The reader was good
No. The book was boring. It is not like any of Grisham's other books.
This is one of my top 3 books so far - I have listened to about 20.
Malcolm/Max was smooth - I was pulling for him the whole time.
This book was more of a drama with a mystery woven into it. It was not super-suspenseful, but I didnt want to stop listening.
Never read print version
The plot twist with the main character as he skillfully went from victim to the person in control.
No- story slow at times
Yes- not my favorite
Easy to understand
Picked up at the end- but wish I'd listened more carefully at the beginning
From time I read chapter one to the end, I just couldn't stop.
Everything, characters, location and the plot.
Every scene was great, you just have to read it for yourself, I don't want to spoil it.
You won't be disappointed, that all I can say.
Read this latest book of John Grisham, you will enjoy it.
I would listen to this book again and again! The reader is spot on, the story is intriguing, and best of all.....you never see the end coming!
He makes the story sound as though he actually lived the events!
Slow and steady gets them every time!
This was one of those books I just wanted to drive another 100 miles so I could listen to more!
I really enjoyed J.D. Jackson's performance. My favorite reader I've listened to by far. I have not read the book myself.
My first J.D. Jackson book. He was great in this one.
I listened the entire book over a two day period. It kept my attention well.
Only reason I would not listen to the Racketeer again, is because I like to listen to new stuff. However, I really did enjoy this listen and could see myself listening to it again someday.
Malcom Banister. Obviously he was the main character, but it was interesting to learn what type of man he was and learn his thought process. His careful planning took a lot of thought.
J.D. reads the story like he is telling the story. I felt like he was sitting there next to me telling the story of Malcom. I did not feel like it was being read. You can tell when someone is reading from a book in most cases. This listen felt like you were just being told the story from the first person.
I typically enjoy John Grisham books, but sometimes they all run together, and I can't remember specific plot lines or characters. This book, while still definitely a Grisham novel, felt different than his most recent ones. The main character IS a lawyer, but he is in prison, so it's a more unique approach in that way.
I grew to like the narrator. At first, he was a little too slow for me. I like more fast paced narrators, usually. But, his style and speed really fit the novel well.
If you enjoy Grisham books, this one is excellent. It kept me interested, and I found myself anxious to get back into the car to find out what happened. I love Grisham's 3rd person omniscient narration; I feel like it keeps the reader in more suspense.
