I enjoyed The Summons but the performance of The Brethren made me crazy. I nearly returned the book. At the end of every sentence the reader whispered. I had a difficult time enjoying the book because this drove me nuts. In three or four places the same sentence was repeated twice, verbatim.
John Grisham novels are always good but I would just read The Brethren and not listen to the audio if I knew then...etc.
The Brethren was performed poorly in my opinion and I listen to a ton of audio books. This is the first time I have ever been so disappointed that I took the time to write this review just to complain. I suggest Grisham never allows this man to read his books again and I also must note it was not very well produced as the many cases of sentences duplicated would suggest.
I didn't read the print version so have no idea.
Boris, he was so multifaceted.
Boris, the accent and speech pattern was wonderful.
Of course, when Boris arrived with the news he had arranged the recovery of the paintings and claimed the rewards.
I can only say it was a wonderful book and I listen to audio books nearly every day and I have never enjoyed any book more than this one.
Yes, in fact I did. I listened to it the first time a couple of years ago and just completed it again.
The character Assad, he is a wonderful addition to the story. Assad keeps it light and fun while all the while an ace detective.
I liked it, he did a wonderful job with all of the accents.
I was surprised there were no other reviews so felt it deserved my input.
