I had seen the movie years ago in black and white. So when I saw that this was a dramatization of the book I wanted to get it. It did not disappoint. I was glued to my seat. I didn't want to stop listening to it. I just really enjoyed this book. You get so into it and it makes you think about how we judge one another based really on nothing really at all but; impressions, stereotypes, life experience with someone similar but rarely on fact. This was excellent it, listen to it and then share it.!!!
I like the fact that he merged Will Robin and Camel Club, the only problem with the story is that it too short. It left me wanting more!
I love the fact that he kept the same reader for the book, Peter Giles is Mickey Haler; the story fast worded past his run for prosecutor, I was initially disappointed, but the more the story went forward the less it mattered to me. The story kept me engrossed to the point where I yelled out at the climax of the story. Awesome, way to end the story. I hope he keeps the Mikey Haler character for a long time to come.
Since I am not a huge Stephen King fan this was not on the top of my summer reading (listening) list, but I heard reviews of and read the synopsis and I was hooked. I love that it is not overly violent, but it give you a chance to look at in my opinion a fresh look at time travel, some aspects are a little off, and the use of phrase the past is “obdurate” was overly used, but over all I really enjoyed the book and recommend it to anyone who loves a little Sci-Fi.
The Summons was good, but obvious. I could see the end midway through the book, but I still throughly enjoyed the story, it made we want more for story to end differently.
The Brethern is a really good story that is written very well. I enjoyed the story but I didn't like the ending though. I would have chosen for things to end differently all the way around. Not enough background as to why somethings operated the way they did.
I thought this was going to be obvious, but it wasn't. I am glad I was wrong about the centeral character. I really enjoyed the story, but there needed to be a better explination as to why the centeral character behaved the way he did. I would recomend reading this story...it is classic Grisham.
Holds your interest and keeps you on the edge. Not overly obvious in the with the end holds you right on the edge of your seat. Makes you wish the story could continue.
I couldn't have been more board, than if she sat in a book store and read it aloud.
So very very boring, wish I could get a refund.
The book starts out a little slow, the story is sort of disjointed, but once the story gets going however the suspense builds and you start to get into it. I was dissapointed in how the story ended. It really made no sense to me, it was a quick read (listen) and it left me wanting to know more. In some cases that could be considered a good thing in this case, I don't feel like it is.
I enjoy David's writing, and this book gave me a history of the camel club, and the character dynamics. Thought I had the book totally figured out and I didn't. That alone is why I gave this story four stars. The insite into Oliver Stone's back story was excellent. Great character develop, great story line. Excellent book! read it, you won't be disappointed .
