    The Summons: Once Judge Atlee was a powerful figure in Clanton, Mississippi. Now the judge is a sick, lonely old man who has withdrawn to his sprawling ancestral home. Knowing the end is near, Judge Atlee has issued a summons for his two sons to return to Clanton to discuss his estate. The Brethren: They call themselves the Brethren: three disgraced former judges doing time in a Florida federal prison. In prison these judges-turned-felons can reminisce about old court cases, dispense a little jailhouse justice, and contemplate where their lives went wrong. Or they can use their time in prison to get very rich, very fast.

    Story
    Where does The Summons & The Brethren rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    the stories are 2 of my favs from grisham. the reading of the summons was great. i was able to loose myself in the story, the reading of the brethren however - and this is my very favorite of grisham's work- left me distracted. the reader repeatedly ended his sentences in whisper, very annoying and distracting from the story. he had the right voice for the reading, old and worn and gravely like a bunch of imprisoned judges would be in my mind, but they would not end their sentences in a conspiratorial whisper. it was not natural speech in my opinion.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    rex was my fav in the summons, i pictured him easily.
    in the brethren i really didn't have a favorite character. i loved the supreme court judge but then they all had their great qualities


    Did Frank Muller and Michael Beck do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    for the summons yes
    for the brethren, not so much


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes on both titles.


    Any additional comments?

    i just wish the reader for the brethren had read like he was talking at the head of the family dinner table not the dark recesses of a midi-evil dungeon.
