"Another great read from Grisham"
This deviates from the usual lawyer story and is all the better for it. J.D. Jackson performs superbly and really added to the enjoyment of this highly unpredictable story. I was gripped from the start and just when the plot seems to be winding down, off it goes again catching you up in a whole new story-line. Whether you are a Grisham fan or not I would highly recommend you try the Racketeer!
I had no real issue with J.D.Jackson..thought he did the best job he could have really
I have been a Grisham fan for a long time, but this is one of those occasions when you feel he is putting something out just to satisfy publisher and fans. The story starts well enough, but it becomes really far fetched and lacking in his usual dialogue. Not one I would recommend and instantly forgettable. No matter how much this author has entertained me in the past, it feels like a bad copy of something that's good.
"Best one in a while"
This was the best John Grisham that I have listened to in a while. Its always good when your favourite charecters come out on top! Good narrator - which always makes an audio book better than a book.
So many twist and turns in the story it kept you guessing right to the end.
I can't think of a particular moment, to me everything about the book was memorable.
He bought the characters to life with his narration.
Yes I would
Thoroughly enjoyed the book, a riveting read John Grisham at his best I think!
"Good Read JUST"
I was perhaps wishing this to be better that it was. This was my first purchase and this may be reflects my judgement. The storyline was fine and easy to listen to. The audio quality and the reader was very good. I feel that I expected too much from an audio download. The overall score if I had to would be 7.5 from 10.
I have NOT listened to but have read John Grisham and knew his work. This rated highly among those I have read.
The tone and reflection was very good.
too good! too little! too late!
I will buy more..........................
I couldn't fault the narrator but the content left me cold. I've read and/or listened to Grisham for years, probably nearly everything he has written but I had to give up on this after about 3 hours. I was bored. I didn't engage with any of the characters and didn't care about them. It was so slow I lost interest in the events being depicted and I wonder if Grisham wrote it? The only other Grisham I've failed to complete was the painted house and would say this is as poor as that.
The Best Exotic Mango Hotel
Yes - slow!
Disappointment - not up to Grisham's usual standard
A very well written story with all sorts of twists and turns. There were times that I knew what was going to happen next but the move after that was totally unexpected. An excellent read and an excellent narrator. Its a huge pity that the other books read by JD Jackson aren't to my taste - he has such a sexy voice
"Great summer listening"
Long convoluted twisting story that beautifully resolves itself.
The police laughing
Nathan's annoying voice suited the character perfectly.
Not possible to listen to in one sitting.
I don't know how many times i shouted "Why is he doing this?"
I thought this was an excellent story well told. I loved the cat and mouse twists and turns. The narration was excellent as usual. I have yet to be disappointed with a Grisham novel.
I enjoyed this book although wish I had listened to an abridged version, I think it would've been better moving a bit 'faster'. The story line is good with a good twist it just took to long to get there.
