Of Course. I like her stories. They are easy to listen to and kind of zone out with. They are generally entertaining. This one just missed the mark.
Well...I finished it so I suppose so, but I think it felt like more of an obligation to finish the book because I bought it.
Cant speak to the print version but I would assume that the story is engaging enough that it would not disappoint.
Truth be told, I don't feel as though one character stood out more than the others. I am a fan of Jake Brigance, possibly because I associate him with Matthew McConaughey's portrayal in the A Time to Kill. Letty was well written and you find yourself pulling for her from the onset. Lucien returns as the lovable drunk who manages to lend something to the equation. Seth Hubbard's children are extremely well developed without a lot of cumbersome back-stories. All in all, Grisham did a fabulous job of character development and you know how you are supposed to feel about each character based on the tenor in which they are colored.
Probably when the team of lawyers arrived with the first will in hand to submit for probate and they learn of the alternate "hand written will"
I had a very difficult time listening to Ancil Hubbard recount the lynching.
I had such a difficult time getting into this book that I listened to the first three or four chapters multiple times. Each time I found myself thinking about a multitude of things....none of which was going on in the book. Maybe the narrator's voice was too lulling or it just took FOREVER to get interesting, either way...I was three attempts and out. If someone can convince me to get back to this I would be happy to...hate to waste credits on a snooze.
