Most definitely! I often read Grisham's books more than once and having this one as an audible book makes it even more appealing. This one was done so well...very entertaining.
Any other Grisham novel! I could compare it to a Robert Ludlum novel,
due to the many twists and turns in the book. One did not know the outcome until the very last page I also enjoyed this audio book as much as The Help. Both performances by the readers were superb.
The lead character. Malcolm Bannister.
It made both my husband and I cry due to much laughter! It certainly made a long car trip more enjoyable.
Loved the novel and audio version equally. Jackson did a marvelous job portraying all of the characters on spot.
Always reliable. That's how I view John Grisham's books. I needed a book that would carry me through at least 6 hours of mindless work. I had 15 minutes to download so I picked this new release knowing it would be a sure thing. I've never been disapointed.
The narration in this book is some of the best I've heard. The story was full of intrigue and kept me guessing. Very well thought-out.
I really like Grisham. I am a little disappointed in this book, but I will certainly read more of his books. I don't normally look at who the narrator is, but the narrator cannot be faulted here.
The ending was--not memorable. It was kind of a surprise, but one where you just shrugged and said, Oh!
Yes, if you wanted to kill some time, The Racketeer would do that for you.
The first half of this book was kind of ho-hum and I thought it was a pretty pedestrian, matter-of-fact plot. But wait for the second half. My perception went from "nice story" to "that was one of Grisham's best in a few years!" Mr. Grisham still has it! This one would make a good movie.
Enjoyed the book. I listened while traveling and had no trouble catching up where I had to pause and feeling "connected" to the story. I think I will listen to it again and will probably catch several things I missed first time around. Very good!
Took awhile , but got into it.
He did not seem to be involved with the story.
Not sure I would read it.
Interesting to have a white guy write from a black guys perspective. The book was ok but I thought it was a bit contrived. Too many things had to line up just right and I found that to be distracting.
I liked the narrator's tone taken with the main character. During the brilliant storyline, the main character didn't give away the ending.
I can't help but look at government furniture without thinking about the possible price inflation connected with what the tax-payer has spent. I don't know if it's true that the prison chair cost $800 as opposed to the regular $75 price, but it does make you wonder. Haha
Yes. I did not know what Racketeering was prior to reading this book. It was insightful to read about the law and tactics used at trial and how its possible for innocent people to get caught up.
If anything, maybe slightly bland in tone...but I think that went along with the main character's persona during the book.
It had a twist and ended up going in a completely different direction; one I was not expecting at all.
It was slow in some places. But overall it was enjoyable. Female character was not really fleshed out.
