    "Sooooo great!"

    As a Grisham fan, I had to listen to EVEN this one! I'm sure it was geared to a much younger reader but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I am giving it to my "brainy" granddaughter who loves to read and can't wait for her reaction. Maybe she will write a review....

    "Theodore Boone, Kid Lawyer"

    Loved it! The story captures you immediately and carries you through to the end. The characters are as vivid as the story. You'll fly through this one as it is an easy read and you won't regret that you picked it up!

    "I'm a Theodore fan"

    Grisham can build a connection between you and his characters, I'm rooting for Teddy. This book is great to get an introduction into the awesome work of Grisham.

    Story
    "Well done!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version. But the book was enjoyable and reminded me of my fantasies early in my career.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I could relate to the fantasies of being a lawyer. The glory, the victory the self promotion...all of which was enjoyable.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I read the series and that would be hard to say, but the realization that he was already a lawyer in his mind.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Can't remember.


    Any additional comments?

    A great book for children in the civics class of a junior high school. Very action orientated.

    "Road Trip"

    This passed the time in car. Interesting storyline. Grisham is a great storyteller. Richard Thomas was AMAZING as the narrator!
    Only thing I didn't like was the story seemed like it was geared for a more juvenile audience.

    "excellent light listening with young adults"
    What made the experience of listening to Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer the most enjoyable?

    Excellent light listening with young adults on a trip. Grisham has done an excellent job with an entertaining story


    Have you listened to any of Richard Thomas’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    John Boy has grown up and his actors training comes out as he reads the books.
