I found myself moaning as the main character would describe the world around him. Perhaps I am simply a little too old for this book, but it seemed that everything was very literal, black and white and that every experience was either the end of the world or the most amazing joyous experience ever. Kind of like listening to a teen, I suppose.
Still, I was interested and will likely try the second book when it arrives.
Although this may have a wonderful story, I cannot fully comment. I admit to being an unusual reader. I greatly dislike vulgar speech. The F word repeated so often does make any book for me virtually unreadable. I made it through a few hours, then stopped. I realize I am not the audience for this book, but I personally appreciate it when someone else writes a review that comments on such strong language.
I had hoped that the story would include more intrigue and suspense. I listened to this with my wife, and could tell from the summary that there would be romance, but it was more of a romance and less of a story about mistaken identities, intrigue, suspense, etc.
The story is interesting, but written in simple fashion for teens or younger. I was glad I could safely listen to it in the car with my kids, no foul language or offensive material. It was a little too simplistic to enjoy on my own as much as other Grisham novels. Overall worth the time, enjoyable.
