I am sure there is an audience for this book but I couldn't wait to be done with it. Not because it was well written but the characters were so unlikable I didn't want to spend time with them. I will say the narrator was excellent.
I enjoyed this book, it was very entertaining. The characters were rich and quite believable and I think everyone could relate to this story. The narration was terrific and quite added to the story.
Bought this book from the sale page and quite happy with it. Enjoyed the characters and the horse racing back drop. Nice solid story, looking forward to trying another Dick Francis book. Narrator was also quite good.
I found this book very tedious and pretty much all it made me do was dislike lawyers and make me happy I have a will. The end was quite predictable and I only finished it just in case I was wrong about the ending. I wasn't. He has many works much more entertaining than this. Some of the same characters in A Time to Kill but do not expect it to be anywhere near the same quality of writing.
Stephen King had me since 1976 when I picked up 'Salem's Lot and had to drop my 8 am class because I could not put the book down. I then devoured every Stephen King book I could find with my personal favorite being The Stand. He is just a master story teller! However, once I started Misery I could not finish it as it truly was just too miserable! So I stayed away for years (but did read The Stand again). I then inched my way back with Bag of Bones, Duma Key, 11/22/63 (loved it), Dr. Sleep and Mr. Mercedes. So glad to be back again in his web of good and evil. If you have the same feelings I expressed in this review get the audiobook you will enjoy it!
I enjoy listening to books, I get much work done with my I-pod. Even though I enjoyed listening to this book I did not like it. When I read I feel like I am hanging out with the characters. There was not one main character in this book I would ever want to be in their company. I could understand the interest in this book but there is nothing positive about reading this. Make a different selection!
I am a big fan of Pat Conroy's books. I think he tells a great story and I enjoyed how he explored each character's past. Narrator was excellent also.
Love me some Virgil Flowers, but this was just ok. Usually the reader follows Flowers through a personal journey along with his detective work, although that was in here not too much depth and he is such an interesting character. Also I kept looking for the phrase that is usually said once in the book when someone again meets up with ______ Flowers, but it either wasn't there or I missed it and I always enjoyed that calling card. Anyway if you are a Virgil fan you will of course read it. Not sorry I bought it as I said love me some Virgil Flowers. I did like the narration.
This was just a great story and a great narrator worth your credit and worth buying.
I listen to books while I walk and this book kept me walking!! It was a good story, good main character and great narration. I liked it so much I have just download another book by same author and narrator, hope it too keeps me walking!
