At first I thought the voice of JD was too slow, but then I loved it. I enjoyed the twists in the book and was kept wondering until the end as to what ta hell was going on. :) read it..
Grisham is a great story teller, every time. I always look forward to his work.
This is a very good book. I enjoy listening to it. I could follow the narrator because his reading was clear.
Swinging the deal with the federal government
So far, the transformation of the main character into another person. I cannot wait to find out what happens next.
it was just very interesting!
Yes. Narration was excellent! Really felt like th eprotaginist was telling the story.
Yes I would. A fun read / listen that is entertaining without taking itself too serious.
A colorful, personal telling of the tale.
Yes, when Malcolm / Max first experiences the simple pleasures of freedom.
Of the thousands of mystery/suspense books I've read or listened to, this is the absolute best! Won't spoil it for you but this is definitely my favorite!
This book is the first of John Grisham's books I have read for quite some time. Several years ago I had read some of his first books and enjoyed them tremendously. At the time i read his book, 'The Firm' I became fascinated by reading fiction dealing concerning the legal profession. I find this book to be one of his best along those lines. It is about a man who lost his license to practice law because he was sentenced to prison for engaging in racketeering.
The story is filed with mystery, intrigue and kept me guessing the whole way through. The characters were very defined and it was easy to relate to them. The twists and turns of the story added to the suspense.
The narrator was very good and added to the listening experience. i don't remember ever listening to him narrating any of the many other audiobooks.
I recommend this book to all who enjoy mystery and suspense novels and to those that are interested in reading about stories with a twist set in the legal field or prison system.
With all the best Grishams.
Malcom is sympathetic
Payback is not a bitch but becoming rich
I would pass, I enjoyed it somewhat, but was hoping it would get good. This author has given us great reads in the past, but this does not live up to his prior books.
was not a big fan of the narrator, not bad, just not up to the level expected
I really wanted to like this book. I found it ok and somewhat enjoyable, but felt that it just could have been better. He has done great work in the past and I look forward to his next one, which will hopefully be better.
The narrator matched very nicely the character.
The story was very predictable, you could easily figure out what had transpired along the way.
A plot twist or two, a surprise ending, some drama.
J.D. Jackson was the best thing about the listen. He seemed very believable. At the same time many of the characters in the book sounded very similar.
No, not unless Grisham, pens a suspenseful, dramatic, portrayal of men who are incarcerated, desperate, and riveting.
The first half of the book seemed like good ole Grisham: details on the prison system-stats etc. But all of sudden it was like listening to a different author. An implausible dog leg in the story. Unlike most Grisham novels there isn't the character you root for, that you want to see win. Makes one wonder if, as our favorite authors age, do they have trouble coming up with the great stories that bolstered their early careers. its an uneventful book that cant hold a candle to works like The Firm, A Time to Kill, The Chamber, The Pelican Brief etc. The Racketeer is forgettable.
