"A bit long winded"
This book is well read but I found it a bit too meandering. If I lost total concentration (which I tend to do) I would sometimes be completely lost with what was going on and have to rewind it! After keeping going I did find the last quarter of the book did grab me but I could of done without a lot of the first three quarters.
"John Grisham on excellent form as usual"
A great listen, Grisham never fails to deliver and this one is no exception. Thoroughly recommended.
Read all of his previous books and was really looking forward to this. Big let down. Daft unbelievable story. Bad all round. Can't believe I wasted money and time on it.
"Not his best"
The plot is weak and the ending predicable. I really enjoyed it until the halfway point but once I guessed the ending it was a case of going through the motions. Fans of the author maybe a little disappointed and interestingly the authors note at the end made me feel like it was a novel to fulfill part of a book deal.
"Easy reading at its best"
Some books just suck you in and take you with them and in true Grisham style, this book did just that. The plot starts with our protagonist in jail but we quickly learn that it's not where he should be and the remaining question is how will he unravel the situation and reclaim his life? To say more would be to spoil the plot but the clever twists and turns keep the book moving nicely from beginning to end. Grisham is a master of his genre.
The latest from John Grisham is a good story and has a number of unexpected twists. I read the book first and then listened to the audio. The audio narration added an extra dimension to the story and helped bring out aspects I had missed while reading. I would recommend this audiobook.
"Gripping legal thriller"
The twists and the turns of this legal thriller are amazing to say the least. It is well delivered with clear pronunciation and emphasis on the right words to give the reader a gripping book to listen to and read at the same time. John Grisham as usual delivers in his typical style another book that readers can enjoy reading or listening based on their preference.
"Great story! I"
As usual a John Grisham classic, he always seems to keep me hooked on the story and keeps me guessing, never disappoints!.
A well deserved 5 stars!.
"Far too contrived "
You keep waiting for it to improve and it never does. it's far too contrived and lacks real substance. there are long passages which are highly detailed a descriptive of daily activities which seem designed to fill in time as the author had nothing interesting to say. Left me disappointed.
I am normally a fan of grisham but this was a big dissapointment. Obvious story line, predictable ending. There are better books out there
