I downloaded this book because it was on sale and I wanted something to listen to. I wasn't prepared for how sad the narrative actually was. In a society where we are quick to blame the parents for the unwarranted violence of teenagers and young adults, this book did an excellent job of giving insight into the fallout a mother faces after her troubled son commits a terrible tragedy. Overall, the book was a bit hard to get into but once I started to understand the characters, I found this to be a very satisfying selection.
When I downloaded this audio book, I didn't realize that a lot of my friends were reading it and that it was on the Best Seller list. GREAT story and wonderful narration. I really liked that there was a female and male narrator. As this story is full of twists and turns, the different perspectives really come to life. I listened to this story during a 10 hour drive to Atlanta and I actually sat in my car and finished the chapter before I got out. It was that interesting.
I thought this was a solid audiobook and enjoyed it. The performance was great and often made me laugh.
Typical Grisham book but still worth listening too. This book was a bit more humorous than others which was a definite plus.
No but I would certainly listen to him again.
