    In 1970, one of Mississippi's more colorful weekly newspapers, The Ford County Times, went bankrupt. To the surprise and dismay of many, ownership was assumed by a 23 year-old college dropout, named Willie Traynor. The future of the paper looked grim until a young mother was brutally raped and murdered by a member of the notorious Padgitt family. Willie Traynor reported all the gruesome details, and his newspaper began to prosper.

    Overall

    This was my first Grisham book. The story was well written, no doubt he is a good writer. I gave it only 3 stars because it did drag a lot and he seemed to go off on many tangents that took away from the book. I don't feel he got into the MAIN plot enough. Maybe the apparent main plot was really a subplot and the other plot "relationships" was really the main plot. I found the book entertaining. I would like to make a note on how fantastic the reader, Michael Beck is. He deserves 6 stars out of the possible 5. I would really like to hear him again and will check out Grisham again so I can. He changed character voices like no one I have ever heard.

    By all accounts, Thomas Andrews, designer of the ill-fated Titanic, went down with the ship. How, then, could someone else know, not only the vivid and horrific details of what Andrews experienced that tragic night, but also, details of his entire life?

    Overall

    I have always been fascinated by the concept of reincarnation and very intrigued by the allure of the Titanic. So with this audio book I got a wonderful dose of both. It is nothing less then amazing. I find William Barnes to be very credible and engaging. I can't help but think that he is the real deal and indeed the reincarnate of the builder of the Titanic, Thomas Andrews. A highly recommended listen. Listen and decide for yourself.

    I could not wait to get back to my computer and listen to this book. I wanted to know where it was going. I was not disappointed. Highly addictive and highly recommended.
