I liked the way Theodore approached the challenges to solve the problem.
It kept my interest all the way to the end.
When I listen to Richard Thomas I think of Walton's John Boy. He performs without drawing attention to himself.
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.
As Corey Snow told the story I imagined being on the Sub with the crew.
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!!
Yes! The Testament has no dull spots. It is realistic, informative, interesting and entertaining.
Learning about back country Brazil, the Pantanou, the people, while reading on to find out how the pieces fit together.
Yex. Frank performs well!
John Grisham spent time in Brazil in the areas that Nate visited. It was like being there. The Testament combines the research and writing skills to become one of John Grisham's best.
I enjoyed getting to know better all of the characters that I have heard so much about through out my life.
I feel that I am the beneficiary of Rick Atkinson's research.
Yes. John Grisham's are among my favorite and this one is one of his best. You can expect to have your interest and imagination held through out the book.
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.
I could imagine the things the Danilio had to endure. I felt like I was there in his place.
Yes. Listening makes a difference!
Dave presents the story in such a way it makes you want to keep listening.
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.
I have listened to most of John Grisham's books. I look forward to any new John Grisham book.
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.
It did not quite reach that level for me.
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.
Maybe down the road. I don't usually read or listen to books more than once.
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.
When Nadine Carris was stifled in court by Dave's research.
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.
