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....
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!
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.
I got this book thinking adult John Grisham book...not so. While I liked it, I could also see 4th or 5th graders enjoying this too!
Enjoyed listening to this on m6 walks. Looking forward to listening to the second book in this courtroom drama!
I did not read the print version. But the book was enjoyable and reminded me of my fantasies early in my career.
I could relate to the fantasies of being a lawyer. The glory, the victory the self promotion...all of which was enjoyable.
I read the series and that would be hard to say, but the realization that he was already a lawyer in his mind.
A great book for children in the civics class of a junior high school. Very action orientated.
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 on a trip. Grisham has done an excellent job with an entertaining story
John Boy has grown up and his actors training comes out as he reads the books.
