Best "read" of the year. Baldacci changes it up a bit and brings us a new type of hero. The male reader is great. The female reader is good but not great. Her accents leave a lot to be desired.
Mitzner's characters, from the DA to the Judge,to the Defense Lawyer, ( the main charactet) ring true. As a trial lawyer myself, I very rarely read, or enjoy lawyer books. I have a tendency to pick too many holes in the plot or the trial objections etc. Not to say I didn't do it in this book but overall it was pretty ture to form. In fact, at times, when the author was talking about emotions and the pressures of a trial lawyer he was right on. The characters were very realistic. The Judge is someone I've been in front of many times, some actually worse. The story moves along well, a little sappy at times, but I stayed interested. Overall A good read, especially if you like lawyer books.
I did not like this book from the start. I stayed with it and read the whole book but it never got better. The reader is okay but the story is just silly. Not sure if there is really a plot and every twist is easily predicted. Written at a 12 year old level the book was very simplistic.
If you want to learn a little about dogs and listen to a good mystery, this is for you. I couldn't put it down. I just wish it was a little longer. I didn't want to see it end.
This was without a doubt one of the, if not, the best book I have ever listened to. The reader was great, the story was even better. King's attention to detail, and his character developement were fantastic. I actually applauded at the end. (Although I was sad to see it end.) Fantastic!!
Not much to say about this book. One of the best ever! A must read for everybody!
First of all let me mention Scot Brick. He is a great reader if the book moves on itself. However if the book is slow, he becomes unbearable. I actually played the book at double speed to move it along. Brick is overly dramatic even when not necessary. The book itself is weak. It seems like the author believes that the more twists he puts in the book the better it is. Wrong! I felt it was like a high school student writing his fist book. Just silly at times. Really weak.
I read, or listen to books to be entertained. Grisham's books usually do that. There is nothing worse however when an established fiction writer tries to disguise his political views as a fiction story. There is no story here and there is nothing new presented for the anti capital punishment agenda. If I wanted to read a one sided discussion on the merits of capital punishment I would have purchased any of a thousand books on the subject. And there is another side to his agenda. But I didn't purchase this book to be preached at. Boy was I had.
I must admit that I was put off by the negative reviews I read. I listened to it anyway and loved it. With good characters that I cared about it is a very easy read. What I was amazed at was how little I learned in school about WW1. I think you could easily teach a course based on this book. I went to the internet constantly to learn more about incidents that were mentioned in the book. I could not put it down.
One of the very few books that I quit on. After 3 hours I had no idea where this was going. Boring!!!
