Entertaining, fun, and an easy listen. Not the great american novel. Recommend it for a long road trip.
It's not the best but certainly not the worst book. It's an easy entertaining listen. Great for while driving or at work.
No I don't have the time for that with any of the books.
Yes, by causing confusion. Grisham is very good at creating suspense by keeping the reader on the edge with just enough information to keep you wondering, "Where is this going?" and confusion "Why did he do that?"

Near the top.
"edge of the seat" might be overstating it, but a good story, nonetheless.
He became the character. Good voice.
I would not encourage or discourage a friend from listening to this book. It seems that some really like it and some don't. I can't say I totally disliked it but if it was the only John Grisham work I had experienced, I probably would not read another.
Yes, I would be willing to try another book by Grisham. He is one of my favorite authors and I usually enjoy his work.
OMG, the narration was too slow but it did match the pace of the story, which was also too slow. I was halfway through it before it really caught my interest.
I might just to see if the story is better on the big screen.
J.D. Jackson has a wonderfully smooth voice but he just read too slowly. I won't put him on my list of favorite narrators but I wouldn't avoid other audiobooks he has narrated.
This book is full of surprises! John Grisham does it again. It is full of twists and turns. I could not turn it off. I actually went in the basement and pretended to do laundry just so my husband would not interupt my listening. Thank you Mr. Grisham!
It was unpredictable.
His voice was hypnotic.
It shocked me several times.
Pedestrian plot. Difficult to care about principal characters. Agents as well alleged aggrieved main character left me not caring a wit about their respective agendas.
No, I would not. No redeeming qualities in any character. Each "side"is equally cruel, uncaring and self serving.
Plodding narration. His pacing lulls one into mind freeze.
Please, no follow up. Unless one suffers from insomnia.Can't imagine subjecting myself to further ennui.

I have read all of Grisham’s stuff. I tend to like his non-lawyer stuff and the “Racketeer” once again delivers. After a slow start the book became a non-stop read for me. As always, the characters are well developed. John, you keep writing and I will keep reading. Inmates seem to have way to much time on their hand to be able to think up things like this.
Not really, but it did keep me guessing.
I like the story and there were pretty good story twists. definitely an enjoyable listen.
