    Story

    It is 1968. Lynnie, a young white woman with a developmental disability, and Homan, an African American deaf man, are locked away in an institution: the School for the Incurable and Feebleminded, and have been left to languish, forgotten. Deeply in love, they escape, and find refuge in the farmhouse of Martha, a retired schoolteacher and widow. But the couple is not alone - Lynnie has just given birth to a baby girl. When the authorities catch up to them that same night, Homan escapes into the darkness, and Lynnie is caught.

    FanB14 says: "Beautiful Attempt"
    "Worthy subject matter but kind of average."
    Overall

    This is a nice book but the story is a bit cheesy and over emotional. The characters were a bit one dimensional.

    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.

    Suzn F says: "I confess, I loved it!"
    "Very lame, I can't believe Grisham wrote this"
    Overall

    This was a terrible book. I could only make it through half way. It was as if it was written by a high school student. The characters were exaggerated like on a soap opera. It was stupid and boring.
    I usually like his books

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    "Wonderful"
    Overall

    I was engaged with the characters from the first sentence. The book was very interesting and believable. I cried at the end.
