I have listened to all of Turow's other books. While a number of them are a bit slow, this one unbearably slow. Very predictable and he goes completely off on a tangent to try to build characters. You could skip significant portions of the book and not really miss anything because he doesn't stay on course with the story. I stopped just over half way through and only after forcing myself to listen for at least an additional hour.
Not completely "on edge," but does make you keep listening.
Great story. Foreshadowing gave away the ending, but as usual, Grisham had just enough details to keep it very interesting (even if you know what's coming). Much better than most of Grisham's more recent books. If you liked Grisham's first few books, this is a MUST read (or listen).
