    Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.... Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever new novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

    Would you try another book from John Grisham and/or J.D. Jackson?

    Of course -- I ALWAYS buy Grisham's books...


    What could John Grisham have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    He could have had his book edited by a competent editor...

    It STILL drives me NUTS that the MATH didn't work out with the selling of the gold bars -- either he sold 100 for $122,000 or 50 for half that...

    NOT 50 for $122,000 TOTAL at $1,220 an ounce...

    This was brought up again at the END of the book -- and the SAME mistake was made...

    I cannot OVERLOOK errors like this and I've STOPPED reading other author's books for MUCH less...

    Come on Grisham -- Don't put out SLOPPY work anymore...

  • The Pillars of the Earth

    • UNABRIDGED (40 hrs and 54 mins)
    • By Ken Follett

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    Joseph says: "Good historical setting, but loose story."
    "Wow!!! Just WOW!!!"

    Would you listen to The Pillars of the Earth again? Why?

    Yes -- It is 40+ hours of SHEER enjoyment...

    VERY FEW other books meet this threshold...

    I enjoy books that show the author's ability to observe and convey human emotions, thought and interactions -- and then to MIX that skill with HISTORY is just an ADDED BONUS!!!

    WELL DONE!!!

    and THANKS!!!

    It's a fear more paralyzing than falling. More terrifying than absolute darkness. More horrifying than anything you can imagine. It's the one fear you cannot escape, no matter where you run...no matter where you hide. It's the fear of yourself. It's real. It can happen to you. And facing it can be deadly.

    Dohna says: "Koontz did it again......."
    "Give it a chance..."
    Overall

    I just finished listening to this book..

    It took awhile to get into the story -- but by the time PART TWO hit it was an AWESOME listen...
