    John Grisham returns to Ford County, Mississippi, the setting of his immensely popular first novel, A Time to Kill. This wholly surprising collection of stories reminds us once again why Grisham is America's favorite storyteller.

    Overall

    I have read or listened to every Grisham book and enjoyed most all of them. I knew when I decided to order this on Audible that it was his first short story collection. After listening to Stephen Kings latest short story collection and enjoying it very much, I thought I should give Grisham a shot. I thought a couple of the stories were VERY good, and a couple left me cold. But the BIGGEST problem was the narration. I can guarentee that if he decides to do his own narration in any of his future works, I will pass it by. As many of the others have said in these reviews, the narration made it very hard to even listen to at times. Its very hard to get lost in the production as I constantly felt as if someone was reading to me, very badly.

  • Without Conscience: The Disturbing World of the Psychopaths Among Us

    Most people are both repelled and intrigued by the images of cold-blooded, conscienceless murderers that increasingly populate our movies, television programs, and newspaper headlines. With their flagrant criminal violation of society's rules, serial killers like Ted Bundy and John Wayne Gacy are among the most dramatic examples of the psychopath. Individuals with this personality disorder are fully aware of the consequences of their actions and know the difference between right and wrong....

    Story

    I either did not read the description closely enough or it was misleading at best. This book is essentially a text book describing the various facets of a psycopathic personality. I guess I expected much more detailed descriptions of various psycopaths and their crimes. What I got was a somewhat clinical analysis of what Dr's look for in order to make a diagnosis.

    I suspect this might be a good entry level text for pschology students, but was not what I wanted to listen to as a casual read. To top it off, it was very dated, which
    I also missed. Written 30+ years ago, I imagine that even most of what is written here has significantly
    evolved in terms of information known and studies done since then.

    I have not gone back and re-read the description that had made me think this would be a very different read than what it was, but suffice to say, for me it was like trying to read a text book as leisure reading
