A riveting reflection of life from many angles. Also, a deep and disturbing debate on the continued use of the death penalty in the USA.
So much is political one sees that justice is not always the goal.
Well delivered in the class is format, but lacking the big hook I was expecting at the end. a bit of a let down, but entertaining.
Michael Beck is the best narrator I've heard in a long time. Very enjoyable.
J. Grisham, once again, seems to have run out of enthusiasm for his story towards the end. I enjoyed the first part.
Fascinating story...if you believe in the death penalty, Grisham tells a compelling tale that may change your mind...and in the process, he creates a character who experiences redemption.
I picked this as a filler while waiting for some new releases. This was well done and had plenty of twists and turns that I did not foresee. The characters were strong Adam the grandson and Sam the death row inmate grandfather. Forgiveness for some horrible crimes was the center of this story for me. I especially appreciate the pastoral consultations the inmate received. It was very candid and biblically realistic. The performance was good - I had recently listed to Sycamore Row by the same author and narrator.
I will have to say the ending left me unfulfilled. Maybe I wanted him to do more -- and will leave at that so no spoiler.
