The main character whines and is not at all believable. The story takes too long to evolve
Not anymore the last several are just being published because of his name not the caliber of the writing
He doesn't sound like the character portrayed (at least in my opinion)
Sure, I listen to an average of 4 books each month, this one just did not cut it for me.
I am 1/3 through and I am done. Story is slow, maybe its the narration. Different narrator more action, less waiting for IT.
His character development is excellent
Skip this one.
I am not big on re-reading especially mysteries and court room dramas. That said, there are some wonderful colloquialisms and idiomatic phrases which tickle a northerner like me.
Grisham is a master at character development -- you begin to know the characters and build expectations for their actions. Although minor to the plot, I thoroughly enjoyed the black, Rolls-Royce driving civil rights activists and their antics. Where is Al Sharpton when you really need him?
Several great scenes, Grisham is a court room master
Not extreme, its not that kind of a story. Thoroughly engaging from page 1.
Do not miss this one!
I did not read the printed version
The "Cluster F--k" that took place in New Orleans. From the lowliest hospital administrator to the President of the United States (the wealthiest and most compassionate country ever on earth).On one hand you had the selfless, altruistic heroics of the caretakers at Memorial -- operating under deplorable conditions that (fortunately) most of us can only imagine. On the other hand, you had zealous prosecutors full of indignant outrage who were going to make their statement to the community and protect it from these awful medical professionals. Prosecutors, who not once, at least that I heard, thanked those dedicated care takers for the physically arduous and dangerous conditions under which they succeeded beyond the call of duty.I was compelled to think of the horrific dangers everyone in New Orleans faced and the absolute lack of consideration by the various government agencies that our high taxes support.The Calvary should have been riding into N.O. within 24 hours carrying medical supplies, drinking water and food. They should have been prepared with boats, zodiacs and horses.
When the good old boy Cajuns decided to use their boats to assist
Please do not make this a movie!!!
Very well written and well read.
If you adore Wolfe give it a try. Or if you have trouble sleeping and an endless pointless story could help you sleep buy this book
Is there a caboose on this train...On and on and on...Get to the point. The characters could be good but its like reading twitter, who cares
Is laugh out loud was really bad and annoying
Maybe -- I may have quit too soon but for me 10 hours was all I could stand enjoying
I expected to like this as much as I did Bon Fires. Bon Fires took place in NY neighborhoods I am familiar with, I am also very familiar with South Florida and Miami but I could not relate.
Enjoyed the book and the performance Story is OK and works well until the ending. Shame on you!
Yes but only one more chance
Not unless they fix the ending
Patterson apparently fell for the publisher's advice about selling his next unwritten book. Please write a story and end it...cliffhangers work in old time movies and soap operas, not in literature. (In my opinion, of course). I agree with an earlier review posting, I also thought something went wrong with my MP3 player when the book apparently ended.
