"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.
Typically complex Grisham. You think you understand who's doing what and why, but then there's another twist. Don't try to do anything else with your brain while you're listening! One of those "I'll just listen to another chapter while I do the washing up . . . " books.
It had me puzzled for a while, but all was made clear. The story was great and the narration quite excellent?
great storyline that keeps you guessing. was worried about the ending but wasn't disappointed. Another great Grisham book
