I always look forward to John Grisham's books because he never fails to deliver a great read. As usual, I couldn't put the book down and when I had to, I could hardly wait to get back to reading it once again.
For me, listening is capturing the action live. Although after I listened my husband read the book and couldn't put it down. But when I listen it's like hearing a movie and the picture is vivid in my mind.
It compares to the Shawshank redemtion. Engrossing.
characterization of voice. Each one is an individual.
Fascinating story and legally believable if not accurate.
The reader carried me right thru the story.....
I never knew what would happen next
The ease that he took on each character
The whole story was moving and believable
Keep waiting for something to happen. It never did.
I don't think so, he seems to be fading
Audio better than print? No, depends on your mood
I thought of Grisham's The Litagator--serious subject but handled deftly and with some humor..
I finished this listen with some reservatiosn--until I heard Grisham's own closing remarks. They set things straight-- and I set my doubts aside..
John Grisham does it again! The characters were brought to life not only through the writing of J.G. but through the narration of J.D. Jackson. I gave an overall of 3 only because parts of the story did drag out a bit, but only to set up the remaining story lines. J.D. Jackson did a great job narrating. I will diffidently find another read by him.
Fast-paced but not believable.
Maybe I'm just getting old, I remember past Grisham's novels as being more engaging.
Okay - Great storyline. A little on the far fetched, but then again, this is fiction. I thoroughly enjoyed the book until the last part. Once the twists were straightened, I felt slightly disappointed. Probably the worst part was finding out just how calloused the main character actually was. I wanted to like him and try and identify with his plight of injustice, but at the end, I did not feel sorry for him at all. However, that being said, I would recommend the book and will probably listen to it again in a few years.
I would call it a solid top third. I have over 110 audiobooks so that is a fairly significant achievement. Overall the book was entertaining from start to finish and thats a rare thing these days. The story had some descent twists and did not feel like just another formula thriller.
When listening to a John Grisham novel, I often ask myself where he is going with it. This book was no exception, but I actually let my guard down and didn't see the end coming at all. It was comforting to know that he can still kick me when I'm not looking. If you like Grisham's novels, this one is worth your attention.
