    Theo Boone might only be 13, but he's already uncovered key evidence in a groundbreaking murder trial and discovered the truth behind his best friend's abduction. Now with the latest unfolding of events in Strattenburg, Theo will face his biggest challenge yet. Filled with the intrigue and page-turning suspense that made John Grisham a number-one international best seller and the undisputed master of the legal thriller, Theodore Boone's adventures will keep listeners enthralled until the very last minute.

    I liked the way Theodore approached the challenges to solve the problem.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It kept my interest all the way to the end.


    What about Richard Thomas’s performance did you like?

    When I listen to Richard Thomas I think of Walton's John Boy. He performs without drawing attention to himself.

  • Thunder Below!: The USS Barb Revolutionizes Submarine Warfare in World War II

    Under the leadership of her fearless skipper, Captain Gene Fluckey, the Barb sank the greatest tonnage of any American sub in World War II. At the same time, the Barb did far more than merely sink ships-she changed forever the way submarines stalk and kill their prey.

    This is a gripping adventure chock-full of "you-are-there" moments. Fluckey has drawn on logs, reports, letters, interviews, and a recently discovered illegal diary kept by one of his torpedomen.

    Rex says: "Wow! There were brave men in WWII"
    "Amazing true story! Better than fiction!"

    Story
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    By using his own talents, training and abilities Eugene Fluckey was able to do what the others were afraid to try! The men under his command had total trust in him.


    What about Corey Snow’s performance did you like?

    As Corey Snow told the story I imagined being on the Sub with the crew.


    Any additional comments?

    After listening to this book I appreciate even more the sacrifice that the brave men and women made to defeat the Japanese, end the war and preserve our freedom!!

    Troy Phelan is a self-made billionaire, one of the richest men in the United States. He is also eccentric, reclusive, confined to a wheelchair, and looking for a way to die.

    As you read it seems like you are being fairly treated as a reader and not being lead astray but you have keep reading and paying attention to get the facts.

    Although there is much to learn about the details the author keeps your interest by allowing the reader to discover.

    Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.... Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever new novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Racketeer again? Why?

    No. It is very rare that I would listen to a book more than once. The Racketeer did not reach that "very rare" level for me.


    Would you be willing to try another book from John Grisham? Why or why not?

    I have listened to most of John Grisham's books. I look forward to any new John Grisham book.


    What about J.D. Jackson’s performance did you like?

    J.D. has the ability to perform in such a way that you are not distracted by the performance but totally caught up in the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It did not quite reach that level for me.


    Any additional comments?

    In the epilog John Grisham admitted that The Racketeer was not based on any real live situation and required "little or no research." This showed through and distracted from the story like: How much gold could you really carry in the truck of your car? Could the feds get a murderer out of a Jamaica prison?

    This one was good but I would say that it was a "middle of the road" John Grisham novel.

    The incomparable master of the legal thriller takes us deeper into the labyrinth that is the American justice system, always drawing us in with an irresistible hook, pulling the thread of tension tighter and tighter, and then knocking us out with a conclusion that's never "by the book". Maybe that's why, after more than 20 years of consecutive number-one New York Times best sellers, a new novel by America's favorite storyteller is still a major publishing event.

    Amazon Customer says: "Typical Grisham, entertaining"
    "Not a fast start but worth the finish."

    Would you listen to The Litigators again? Why?

    Maybe down the road. I don't usually read or listen to books more than once.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The courage that Dave had to leave an unpleasant situation and stick with his decision making a happy life for himself by helping all those he met.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Nadine Carris was stifled in court by Dave's research.


    Any additional comments?

    I disagree with another review that the story was predictable. Because of that review it took me some time to get into what I thought was a predictable plot.
