I stuck with this book til the bitter end because I kept thinking there must be a satisfying tying-up of myriad loose ends. But no. The book just didn't seem to have a point. If the writing and narration hadn't been as good as they were, I wouldn't have been able to stick it out. There were some interesting characters, too. But in the end, I felt there needed to be a stronger story line.
This is one of the worst Grisham books I've listened to. Very thin storyline, little action, no suspense. Maybe it's because I listened to the abridged version, which is something I never do. Still, I was grateful when it was over. I don't know if I could have listened to the entirety of the unabridged version.
The characters were tired caricatures, especially the cranky judge. No substance to any of them.
This reading also had some loud, obnoxious musical interludes sprinkled in. The music didn't fit the story and was quite annoying.
I'm not a big fan of Blair Brown but she was okay in this instance.
