The characters made this a potentially great book. You almost fall in love with them and their ways. The problem with the story is that there is truly no story. It is one tragedy after another. The good guys never win. Who would write a story in which the heroes always lose and the villains always win?
Lonesome Dove of course...
Will Patton is the best narrator. I love his work. He is the reason I bought the book. He did a great job with this book in spite of it being a loser.
I am looking forward to listening to Lonesome Dove.
If this story was written by any other writer I would say it was a good read. But, it was written by John Grisham and fell far short of his other fantastic books. It was a bit high on the bleeding heart scale. I have read most all of his books and have thoroughly enjoyed them.
I will buy and read any book he writes. He is a fantastic writer. I love his ideas and ideals and his humorous usage of the word foreigners when it comes to outsiders in small Southern towns. I was raised in one of them and he is right-on when it comes to their descriptions both good and bad. (mostly they are great)
The narrator's voices were great and portrayed the characters well. I enjoyed the characters of the book as well as the story itself. It was a pleasant journey.
Gus was my favorite character. His ideas about life and events were unique and special and very funny.
It was a book that I listened to slowly so that it did not end too quickly.
Mr. Finder's recently written books, including Buried Secrets, have been outstanding and very exciting reads. His older books were so boring I found it hard to finish them. What miracle happened to make such a drastic change in his readability? Whatever it was, I like it very much.
I enjoyed this story. It was an interesting and clever story and the narrator did an excellent job. It was a real page turner for me.
This book and The Lincoln Lawyer used the same story features: i.e. electronic ankle bracelet on rich mean defendant. I like his detective series with Det. Bosch, but his lawyer series are redundant to the point of yawns.
I found this book to be extremely enlightening. I grew up a Christian and had never bothered to study my own religion. Therefore, I had many questions which the professor has answered. I am grateful to him for opening my mind and heart.
