Grisham takes a different tact in this book. A lawyer in jail (hmmm) entertaining but the narration is slow and plodding. The book is predictable, including the ending, but it is an enjoyable story for a long trip in the car.
Say something about yourself!
The story was just OOOKKKKK. Thank goodness for the narration of J.D. Jackson or I would not have been able to finish the story. The plot was rather slow and plodding. The narration by J.D. Jackson took the story to a higher level than the story alone could have done. The story had just enough of a good plot to keep me listening but if it weren't for J.D. I would have stopped before the ending for sure.
This is one of the best I have listened to in awhile.
I loved the fact that Grisham did such a good job of not giving a clue as to the outcome.
The feds are out to get him.
It is a little different that his usual books but so many twists and turns, I could not stop listening!
Contrived: too many loose ends. I am still not convinced that the silly story was not made worse by the reader.
Robotic monotone reading. My computer failed to complete the download on the final CD. This book is so bad that I don't even care because the characters aren't interesting enough to make me want to finish the book. Grisham was once a force to be reckoned with in the legal thrillers gendre. The Firm is a true classic. He needs to find a new profession. I would not waste my time or money on another Grisham: too many good, sharp writers today!
Any and all; unbelievable
What more can I say
There are few consistant, interesting, informative, and entertaining writers that I never get tired of and John Grisham is one of them. His writing voice is one I always find easy to hear and that makes his characters likeable. I always also learn something new about our legal system and it's usually not pretty.
Luckily Grisham novels always have great readers that highlight the power of his words.
J. D. Jackson reads so slowly I felt myself age as I listened. This audiobook ranks at the bottom of my list.
Couldn't make it to the ending. I'm old and don't have that much time to waste.
Jackson should listen to Gerald Doyle to learn how to read an audiobook.
Please don't use this narrator again.
Too long probably would have have made a great short story
I like his work have read almost all his books but this one would make me think twice before I buy another one
all were good
If he's not going to put the time in then don't write anymore ,I got the feeling he was filling pages much as I did in high school with a 300 word essay, I feel cheated because I know he has done better.
Just a curious guy who travels the world.
Voice was slow, but pace of the narrative was slower. All manageable for a GREAT story, but I struggled to feel much sympathy for the hero.
The story was so contrived that I lost interest in the characters. I found myself not caring at all about their actions.
Yes, I generally enjoy Grisham novels.
None of them. The performance was good, but the story was tedious.
An abridged version might be more tolerable. The scenes shift so often that it is truly unbelievable.
