I have listened to or read every Grisham book available and I like them all. Somehow the author manages to make the listener get giddy with excitement about the most menial tasks. This book is no exception, the story deviates slightly from the usual 'main character is a lawyer' premise but does so for the better. This is by far the most addictive Grisham title to date.
Avid reader but surprisingly I have never read Stephen King before. King and Under the Dome get great scores in all the areas I care about: No boring spots, interesting characters, realistic dialog. I am looking for another Stephen King book to read now.
A great book read very well by Scott Brick. The book moves right along with a great story, a good bad guy and a solid funny main character. If you like this book try the other John Corey books by the author. So good I have listened to it 4 or 5 times over the last few years usually when a book I am listening to starts to fizzle I'll put this one on.
Out of the 100's of books in my library, I have listened to this book the most, about 15 times. Every time I listen I hear a new subtle piece of trivia or nuance about the story. I have read and listened many books and I have never read an author that crams as much detail and interesting trivia into their work. It is almost as if Harris thought out every sentence carefully to make sure it contained everything that goes into writing a great book. I know it's not for everyone, but I cant say enough good things about this book.
One of the better audio books I have listened to. The author was all business but also very real and the sharp details kept me listening almost nonstop to this book. My only complaint is that it was only 7 hours long.
I thought the book was..quite good. The author is well read, and does very thorough research. This book, like Hannibal, has multiple levels. You can listen to the story, the words and verse, or the imagery. I know I get a good feeling knowing that despite paying close attention, there is no way I will be able to hear everything the first time around and will be able to listen to it again and get the same enjoyment as the first time.
There were some reviews complaining about the author’s narration of the book. I fell in love with Harris’s unbiased, eloquent drawl in Hannibal even after listening to it many times. In this book Harris knows exactly how to read each character and performs as good as any other professional narrator I have heard, and better than some.
If you are new to Hannibal, I would suggest reading the ‘silence of the lambs’, and ‘Hannibal’ first.
Very good listening, a complete recount of the rise and fall of the Roman empire.
