A retired businessman and widower (it's just me and the cat), I keep active with many diverse projects at which I can almost always be found with my earbuds in, listening to an audio book.
As a rabid Grisham fan I am very sorry to say that this book is not up to Mr Grisham's usual standards. Predictable plot. That the only mistery in the story is left unresolved is the only surprise furnished in this book. I waited the entire book for something exciting or engrossing. This is just a sermon against the death penalty which is always expected from this author. What is not expected is that in this book he gives us very little else. If you have read many of his books you will find the characters, dialog, and plot all very familiar. I suggest you try another title. Almost everything else he has written is excellent. This is the first time I have ever been disappointed by John Grisham.
Not at all.
Sam Cahill, the murderer.
This book was way too long and really drags on...might be better abriged version as the story was solid but never really developed.
Listens to whatever keeps me thrilled, and then surprise the living life out of me :)
I enjoyed it .. but it left a lot to be desired.. not the ending that fits such a book.. the narrator was fantastic though ..
Narration was perfect! You wanted to hate the main character but you couldn't. This definitely made you really think about the death penalty and how many lives it really affects.
Stories are a journey and a destination worth while.
I would try another book read by Michael Beck, I think he did a good job with the characters most of the time.
I will read more from John Grisham because I have liked a few of his other books. This book is not an excellent example of his writing skill.
John Grisham has written some excellent books that I have read, and I will continue to read books by Grisham. However, this book is the worst of his that I have read. I completely disagreed with the entire plot and could not connect with the characters. It was also a very repetitive book. He seemed to be trying to make me feel sorry for one of the main characters by continuously telling me how bad his life is and badly he is treated, but I just didn't feel it.
I was not to fond of any of the characters in this book. I think this is why I could not really get into it. I disagreed with the character's views and opinions for the most part and could not connect with any of the main people.
I probably would not be to interested in seeing it.
This book grabbed my interest from the first chapter. The characters seemed as though I have known them before. I wanted to help Adam through his torment as more about his family's history was revealed. This book made me think differently about the death penalty. I would recommend this book.
I just achieved App Master!! I never thought I would make it this far!! Thanks Audible
Another great book by John Grisham!!! This story is set in the hard times of the 60's in Mississippi with the KKK running wild and everyone else protecting them at every corner. After 25 years old secrets come to light and haunt two families from Clanton...
