I thought the story line was good. These books are pretty predicable by now but Vince Flynn still manages to keep it interesting enough to make you want to listen to more.
This would be an easy read on an airplane..................
I have listened to all of Grisham's books and they are all good with some being better than others. I felt this was one of his best books and many plot twists and turns.
Michael Beck couldn't have read this any better - just brilliant.
Not particularly. I like to enjoy the suspense and look forward to the next listen when I walk my dog.
You will not be disappointed.
Turow is just a brilliant writer and he understands the human condition. You don't have to have any legal training to feel his passion and his ability to comment on things we all have pondered in the past.
It had to be Rusty but the character development for all in the book was just phenomenal.
Probably Tommy. It was interesting how this old prosecutor had changed over the years and I thought Turow made a wonderful example of his integrity.
It's difficult to quit listening to as the plot development always leaves one to start second guessing their preconceived conclusions. This is one of the very best books I have listened to and Edward Hermann is just fantastic.
I normally always consider the audio version to be better as the narrators breath a life into a book that you cannot get from just reading the written word.
I am not sure if I have listened to him before but he did an EXCELLENT job in narrating this book.
Certianly the last 1/4 of the book. My walk kept getting extended and extended as I had to listen to the conclusion.
The way the author mixed in the dog's story with the police officer's was masterful. He wove a relationship that affected the listener plus the plot of the story was excellent. I would rank this book in my top 10 to listen to. I promise you will not be disappointed.
Yes - audio usually breaths life into the story personalyzing it to the extent the written word usually can not.
Ron McLarty is an exellent reader and Baldacci continues to crank out novels that are still entertaining. This had an interesting plot with some good twists and turns which made for an intersesting listen.
Turow is always an intelligent writer and this book is no exception. It is an introspective look at decision making that we all are faced with in daily life. Some decisions are more important than others and this story points out how past experiences can certainly influence our future thinking.
Stephen Lang is simply one of the best narrators out there.
Better than expected
Chance - the pit bull. His reflections on life mirror those of all of us who have struggled to survive on occasion.
When Chance was put in the pit bull ring the last time.
It took me several chapters to fully engage with the two primary characters as this was my first experience listening to a book about pit bulls. I thought the author did a wonderful job with the perspective of the dog ("Chance") and the ending was.................well, you will have to listen to it but I promise you will like this book. It wasn't quite as good in my opinion as "The art of racing in the rain" but came close.
Turow is one of the best in writing legal thrillers and you can't get any better than having Joe Mantegna be the reader.
Turow's books always highlight different aspects of the practice of law. Being a former prosecutor myself I always find his writings to be on point and beliveable.
As always, Parker's mixture of humor, mystery and action was present.
Since this is Robert Parker's last book prior to his death, it is appropriate that it either contained, or at least mentioned, practically all of the characters that have been in and out of the Spenser series novels. I only wish Hawk would have been able to have played a more prominent role but he was
