Grisham is one of my favorite authors, and I have enjoyed all of his books including the Painted House. I picked up Painted House knowing it was going to be very different from his normal courtroom dramas and I picked a day to read it when I wanted something light and different. I picked up The Last Juror, thinking it would be one of his regular courtroom novels. It was not. It was a rambling tale of a newspaper reporter in a Southern town. It was not a bad story, and had the book jacket and the title warned me that it was not a thriller, I probably would have enjoyed it. As it was, I took it along on a trip, hoping to get deep into an exciting court case. What I got instead was a lot of sleep. Yes the story is well written, and yes it is a nice story. It is not indicative of the nail biting tales of the courtroom that the name ?The Last Juror? leads you to believe. Face it as you did the Painted House, and enjoy.
Next to Robin Cook, Palmer is my favorite master of medical thrillers. Although I do not usually listen to abridgements, I made an exception because of the author. I own the book, and although the story lost something in the abridgement, it still held together nicely. I love medical thrillers, and I think this one will keep you listening and thinking. It was an intriguing story with believable and interesting characters
Granted, I am an Alex Delaware fan. I like Kellerman's earlier works better as he stayed in the area of child psychology, which is his forte. I did enjoy the murder book on audible. I made two attempts at reading it and did not succeed, however, as a listen, it was worth the time. As usual, Kellerman's characters were interesting and the story, while not his best, was engaging.
