Someone who doesn't care about the flow of a story.
Written a better book, as well as doing research about the island of Antigua. Really sloppy. If he'd visited the island, Grisham would not have called it mountainous, for example. It's a coral island - not volcanic, as truly mountainous islands are. One part does have "mountains" - the south part of the island - but the northern part is actually considered to be a desert island. As does neighboring Anguilla, Antigua even has cactus. The point of all this is that, again, Grisham was sloppy - not only with that, but with the entire book.
The narrator drove me nuts every time he mispronounced the name of the island of Antigua (as well as reading Grisham's misrepresentation of the physical landscape of the place). What's with that? The narrator referred to Antigua as AntGWA. In fact, the island's name is pronounced AntiGA. I know because my family had a home there for 25 years. Why didn't the producer check before letting the narrator make this error? And it's a big one, because it's an audio book and what people hear, they repeat. There's a special responsibility, hence, to have correct pronunciations.
