The story drags to nowhere and the narrator simply sounds too old for the character - I loved some of the author's other books but not this one.
I love this author, and think this is a very important historical topic with current application. Well worth the time. I will definitely look for this performer - excellent job.
It is unusual in some ways, although not a unique format. It took me a bit to get into the book, but I am glad I stuck with it. I very much enjoyed the book, although I agree with some of the other reviews, the ending is a bit of a disappointment. The performance is outstanding and the book is a worthwhile listen. I would read other books by this author.
This is a good book, but the lead character isn't as endearing as 'Joe' in the first book in the series. Having said that it is well written, an interesting story line and a great performance.
Well I must say the 'crime' element of the book is a stretch. Yes, I know a group crime happened in a small CA town, but this book took that idea to a goofy place. However, I do like the characters, the writing is strong as is the performance. I understand how some of the other reviews are harsh, but I still recommend the book.
This author has numerous characters, each exceedingly well developed & authentic, whose lives interact in a real and compelling way. The performer is outstanding – well worth the listen.
The only thing good about this audio book is Scott Brick - there is a plot so bad I saw the ending 1 hour into the listen, and thought "oh no, he wouldn't do that" but he did.
As we've come to expect, Connelly writes another winner. Jake is as lovable & flawed as ever, the story challenging yet believable and the pace fantastic. Great read ~ and the performance is excellent.
Sometimes 'listening' to non-fiction is very difficult but this performance was excellent and while it is a complex book the story is so well constructed and the performance so strong it is an outstanding listen. Worth every minute - I intend to buy the physical book as well, it is that important.
I like the complex story line of the book, as well as the interwoven characters. The ending was a bit weak, but it didn't spoil the otherwise delightful read.
Grisham just gets better - he creates characters we care about, in intriguing situations and with the audio book we get the benefit of a great performance. I will say his endings are still weak but better than his earlier books. A great read ~ !
