Congratulations Audible! This 6 hour audio of P J o'Rourke's satire is excellent. It is extremely funny, sometimes even sad and educational. I feel enriched by this download and already listened to it twice while driving.
Great Unique Plot
Grisham's "Testament" as it keeps you guessing until the end
He is one of the best. Read with enthusiasm.
Many moments of intrigue
Yes, it has a credible storyline and keeps the listener bound until the end
Yes, The constant question of whether they will get the boy back alive or not.
Although some credibility was lost in the last chapter.
Interesting and its 'unlocks' a skill and expertise people seldom hear about in stories.
The Safe Man. He was skillful
Main. The Expert
Yes. You will reconsider your times of doubt.
No, but this was very good.
It changed me and took many doubts in God away.
For any Christian who experienced disappointments and sometimes feel that God is silent in times of his/her crisis. This is highly recommended.
Regardless of Becks's narration he could not make something of a weak plot.
Towards the low end
The initial plot. A guy in the death chamber, a young inexperienced lawyer. It had the makings, but alas.
To be careful with Grisham next time.
How could Grisham make the guy on deathrow die and the young lawyer fail! To make a point about the death penalty? Sorry, I could not get the point. I loved almost all his other books to bits!
Thought provoking Read and strongly reminding me of 'King Rat' or 'Lord of the Rings'
Orwell's 'Lord of the Rings'
How can the bell curve stay unpunished after this book? After it destroyed the savings and lives of thousands, and still used by 'portfolio manager's to fool us all?
The book was for me, a 'black swan experience'. Audible's statistical rating system does not allow for due credit. I would have given it 10 stars!
I listened to this audio in my car while driving a distance of 500 miles between two remote areas of South Africa. Before I knew it, my destination was afew miles away and I was listening to the last page! Afterwards, regardless of a tired body, I felt enriched, informed and pondering about all the implications of Grisham's book. On top of everything good, was the narrator; Dennis Boutsikaris! Combine a good book with Dennis and you have a masterpiece! Congratulations Audible!
The Broker is good. The narrator is brilliant! Congratulations, Denis Boutsikaris! I listened to his portrayal of 'The lost gospel....'and will now try to get hold of all the books he has read. He really has a gift to bring even ordinary text to fascinating light!
