I'm an avid listener always searching for another good book and willing to share my thoughts with a pithy review.
Good story. Would benefit from two narrators. Female characters would certainly benefit from a female voice. J. D. Jackson carried the main character well, but lacked the flexibility to give the female characters their impact.
This was a very enjoyable venture. There were a few areas where the reader has to suspend logic in order to buy the story line. It does hold your interest.
It was not a predictable tale. Until the end, one doesn't know what will happen to all of the characters.
John Grisham is a skilled writer, of course. But, in my opinion, it is his story telling qualities that make him shine. I can't say too much with such an elaborate story gripping your reading (or listening). This is a story, a yarn, with all the elements sliding in and the descriptive tension appropriate for a classic. Long live the story and long live John Grisham.
Book was as billed, pure suspense to the end!
J.D. has a voice that fits the characters of the book perfectly, it's not like others that have to try to sound right, he fits!!
At first, I was unsure about the narrator, but I was able to eventually ease into it and the story. Then I thoroughly enjoyed the narrator and the story. It was an unexpected delightful experience.
It was different than a lot of other Grisham stories, but you could still feel the Grisham in there.
He made the characters come to life.
Not exactly, although I did listen to several parts in long sittings.
THE GUESSING GAME

As all of Grishams novels, this one didn't dissapoint. Exciting, thrilling, satisfying.
The plot did keep me at the edge of my seat. I always try to predict the outcome when I listen, some things I got right some I didn't, but enjoyed it non the less.
Malcolm/Max was my favorite character...for obvious reasons.
The moment in the book that moved me most, was to hear the events that happen to Malcolm/Max after his arrest, sentencing and so forth, the loss he bared was unbelievable and heart breaking.
Mr. Grisham, Hats off to you again, keep up the great work. Thanks.
The story was okay, with lots of twists and turns, but character development lacked, it just felt unpolished. The narrator was amateur at best.
Absolutely. Have read them all.
Room for improvement. Sounded more like a father reading a bedtime story - well not really even that good. Not professional and polished. Flat and emotion challenged!!
Samuel L. Jackson - he's got that "attitude" thing, much like our Malcomb
More intricate storyline and collaboration.
Been less formulaic in his storytelling.
Made central character sound less smug.
Any FBI agent.
