This would have been a wonderful short story if the hours of snobbish name-dropping had been edited out. The story was all but lost in the authors attempt to prove his own literary expertise.
The narrator did an excellent job characterizing, However his female voices came through as gay rather than authentic female which was distracting.
I am so grateful I found David Whyte, a deeply talented and profound observer and orator.
This book is still worth listening to, however it isn't one of John Grisham's best. The unabridged edition was rather dragging for the first 20 chapters or so then it started to pick up some. I have listened to all of John's books and this one is only worth the freebie if you get them.
I have a lot of experience with Stephen King (and Richard Bachman) books. While I mostly listen to the unabridged audio versions, I have also read some too. King normally takes several chapters to get everything laid down and established. Not so with this one. It you are looking at this review, then you also are an audio fan. Craig Wasson does such an incredible job with this material...you'd swear he was sitting in front of you and telling you a personal story! I hardily recommend this book to those who have long periods where you can listen. Hope you enjoy!
