    Spanning 40 years, this is the story of turbulent Tom Wingo, his gifted and troubled twin sister Savannah, and their struggle to triumph over the dark and tragic legacy of the extraordinary family into which they were born.

    Ella says: "A "Prince" amongst novels"

    Overall

    This audio book is a work of art. It is a testimonial to what can be achieved when two consummate artists and professionals fuse their talents to create what can only be described as true masterpiece.
    If you want someone to appreciate the audiobook genre, have them listen to this one.

    God, I miss Frank Muller.

    Story
    (1228)

    An innocent man is about to be executed. Only a guilty man can save him. Travis Boyette is such a man. In 1998, in the small East Texas city of Sloan, he abducted, raped, and strangled a popular high-school cheerleader. He buried her body so that it would never be found, then watched in amazement as police and prosecutors arrested and convicted Donté Drumm, a local football star, and marched him off to death row.

    Overall

    I'm a huge Grisham fan, but this was easily Grisham's worst effort. I get that Grisham hates the Texas criminal justice system and that he hates most Texans. But to base a novel on such a one-sided, one dimensional perspective just doesn't work. This novel was as uninspiring and predictable as a used bus transfer.
    Since Grisham appears to be working from an ethical soap box, I'm eagerly awaiting his expose of the Mississippi trial lawyer's cabal and his caricature of his ol' buddy Dicky Scruggs. However I'm not holding my breath.
    I gave this one star because at least the narrator was good, even though the material wasn't worth his effort.

    Story
    (76)

    Perry's IQ is only 76, but he's not stupid. His grandmother taught him everything he needs to know to survive: she taught him to write things down so he won't forget them. She taught him to play the lottery every week. And, most important, she taught him whom to trust. When Gram dies, Perry is left orphaned and bereft at the age of 31. Then his weekly Washington State Lottery ticket wins him 12 million dollars, and he finds he has more family than he knows what to do with.

    Lyman says: "lottery"
    "Uplifting"
    Overall

    This is a truly heart-warming story. There is as much wisdom about human nature in this book as in any I've read.
    Paul Michael's narration was, as always, astonishing. He took a diamond and turned into a precision cut, fiery jewel.
