I enjoyed it immensely and would recommend it to any one who likes a good action story with a strong female heroine.
I liked Judy Cooper and seeing her develop as the Black Stiletto. It was satisfying to see her get revenge on men who had wronged her.
The Black Stiletto getting naked in her effort to combat Communism.
The revenge scene with her stepfather was very satisfying.
This story was truly enhanced by being narrated by three different readers. I don't think my experience would have been so enjoyable on the printed page. Arielle DeLisle gave Judy Cooper's voice energy and authenticity. I would like to hear more of her and I'm looking to forward to the next in the series. Chris Patton did a good job with the voice of Martin but for some reason his part wasn't edited as well as the rest. There was a couple of instances of a repeated line - sort of like a stutter. Michael Ray Davis was my favorite of all the voices. His performance of Roberto Renelli, a gangster who has been in prison for over 50 years, was flawless and totally believable. He truly sounded like a 72-year-old, broken down gangster. I'm adding him to my list of favorite narrators.
The voice of Frank Muller. His was the perfect voice for the book.
Savannah was my favorite character. It was interesting to see how she coped with her childhood.
It was like hearing poetry read to me.
I wouldn't rename it.
This is a book I will listen to again and recommend to my friends.
Oh yes. It's an action packed thriller with some romance thrown in.
Jack Reacher!. I liked his quest for total freedom, of never having anyone to answer to, no expectations from any living soul, and the adventure of not knowing what tomorrow will bring. Of course Jack's freedom gets interrupted when he is thrown in jail for a murder he couldn't have committed and the victim turns out to be his brother.
I liked the ending. Jack has realized that he and his lady love will have to part. They want different things in life and Jack finds it necessary to move on. It's sad but now Jack is free again.
I was as relieved as Jack when he found the kidnapped children and they were moved to safety.
This was my first Lee Child novel and it sure won't be my last. It was also the first time I've listened to Dick Hill. He is a superb narrator. I'm adding him to my list of favorite narrators.
I liked all the descriptions of gardening because I can't grow anything and I liked the family relationships, especially the grandsons. I have a grandson about the same age as Timmy even though the author couldn't make up his mind about Timmy's age. He was nineteen months, twenty-one months and finally eighteen months.
What I liked least: The suspense kept me glued to my mp3 player and I hated the narrator blurting out the chapter number in the middle of an intense scene. It made me want to slap someone silly.
When Sam saw how Billy died. It was a plot twist I didn't expect.
Joe Barrett maybe.
Yes, I would.
The story was good enough to keep me listening and was a perfect length. In fact, I finished it in a day. The narrator did well with the suspenseful scenes but he has a tendency to mispronounce words.
Awesome, unique, thought provoking.
I liked all six of the stories and they way they were arranged, the first half of five stories with the middle story whole, then the other half of the first five in reverse order.
All six narrators were brilliant!
Robert Frobisher was my favorite character and his story had a sad ending.
My favorite Frobisher quote: “Whoever opined, “Money can’t buy happiness,” obviously had too much of the stuff.”
I would not encourage or discourage a friend from listening to this book. It seems that some really like it and some don't. I can't say I totally disliked it but if it was the only John Grisham work I had experienced, I probably would not read another.
Yes, I would be willing to try another book by Grisham. He is one of my favorite authors and I usually enjoy his work.
OMG, the narration was too slow but it did match the pace of the story, which was also too slow. I was halfway through it before it really caught my interest.
I might just to see if the story is better on the big screen.
J.D. Jackson has a wonderfully smooth voice but he just read too slowly. I won't put him on my list of favorite narrators but I wouldn't avoid other audiobooks he has narrated.
The whole time I was listening I felt that I could put the audiobook down and forget to pick it up again. It was a pleasant story but not compelling.
It was okay. Sort of predictable.
Maybe, if he wasn't doing many women or children's voices.
Yes, because it was interesting enough that I could listen and get my chores done. It wasn't a story that made me want to sit still and listen.
I didn't realize that it was the first of a trilogy. I don't think I'll be interested in the rest.
I would not recommend this book to a friend because I can't think of anything to say that would encourage anyone to read it. The plot twist at the end was great but there is too much confusion getting there. It was not a linear story, but told with flashbacks and visions that I found hard to keep up with.. I liked the different points of view, especially the parts of the story told by the victims after they were dead.
I have not listened to any other performances by Richard Aspel and Nicki Pauli but their performance with The Two was stellar.
Yes, I would! I think it would make a great movie.
I had never read anything by Will Carver and was not familiar with the character January David. I kept thinking throughout the whole book that January sounded like a female name.
Yes. I would love to get to know the characters all over again.
I liked being drawn into the town of Pagford with its petty politics and relationships and secrets.
No, this was my first experience hearing Tom Hollander. He is brilliant and I will add him to my list of narrators. I liked the way he did the voices for the different characters, especially Howard Mollison.
Howard Mollison, First Citizen of Pagford, The casual vacancy due to the death of Barry Fairbrother was full of possibilities for him.
I had a hard time getting into the story with all the characters but once I got to know them, I didn't want it to end.
Since I'm an audiobook addict, I can't answer this question. I almost always think the audio version is better.
When the temp office worker ate Shad's yogurt containing the huge roach.
Shad was my favorite. He was always looking for a bogus lawsuit that would allow him to retire.
It's a long book with a good ending.
