BUT- I wanted to put one anyway. I know this book has been around for a long time. I think I saw the movie many, many years ago.
What a wonderfully written story right? The characters are all believable, the story is truly a reflection of the deep rooted racism in the south. The story is written so well that you can see a movie play out in your mind. You can see it. To me, this is what makes a story great.
The best part about this story is that it still can ring true today. Loved every minute.
I just achieved App Master!! I never thought I would make it this far!! Thanks Audible
I loved the movie and years later I decided to read the book and boy I'm glad I did. The book goes into so much more detail. Very seldom do you find a book that makes you want to cry, laugh and get mad all at the same time. To think at one time this was a way of life in the south and I'm from the south. Carl Lee and Jake make a great team. I suggest you read this book especially if you've seen the movie. You will love it. John Grisham makes books easy to read and suspenseful all the way through.
I was disappointed with the reading of this book. Sentences repeated several times. The reader was not as good as most. All in all, the reader made it worse for the story.
I bought this book because I so enjoyed Michael Beck's narration on Sycamore Row and the cover lists him as the narrator. I guess I didn't read the book description well enough because it turns out that this is narrated by Alexander Adams and, after the rich southern accents of Sycamore Row, this narration just isn't up to par.
I'm moving on to The Wicked Girls by Alex Marwood.
He talks to fast for my liking and his southern accent was not believable. One of the characters sounds like Barney Fife! I've tried to get past it but listening has become a chore. I'm returning this book with after listening to only 27% of it.
I wanted to love it as I did Sycamore Row but it was very disappointing.
I encourage listeners to buy Sycamore Row instead.
yes, while I felt the story kind of dragged a bit tha naration made up for that
how the jury reached it's verdict
yes, not cry but understand the delima the fater was in
A great book becomes even greater when Alexander Adams is the narrator. Bringing to each character a distinct voice and dialect, Adams makes you want to replay every chapter. I love audiobooks and first heard this particular version when I borrowed it from the library years ago. At that time they were on cassettes. Needless to say I was absolutely thrilled when I saw Audible.com had the same audiobook on its website ready to download. I could listen to the book over and over again; it's that good!
I highly recommend "A Time to Kill" narrated by Alexander Adams. You are sure to love it!!!
Excellent story. Excellent reading. Listen to this and then Sycamore Row. The author weaves a tale so vivid you won't be able to hit stop.
Fearlessly written. Grisham holds nothing back. This page turner will stir your emotions and force you to look deep inside your soul to face your most honest feelings about a sensitive subject.
great book. great nararator...not for children. can not imagine the horror of something like that happening, but it did and if not careful, could again.
Grisham nailed it! Outstanding book! I would recommend this book to anyone! Definitely fires up your emotions!
