I just achieved App Master!! I never thought I would make it this far!! Thanks Audible
So,so,so much better than the movie!!! I can't say enough about the way John Grisham writes his books easy to read,suspenseful and drama drama drama and u still don't know what's next. This book goes so far into the corrupt world and the place lawyers and mobsters have in it. Mitch and Abby only have one way out!!! And u need to read this book to see how they got out with or with out the FBI's help
I saw the film many years ago having not read the book. Picked this one up recently and loved it, but couldn't remember anything from the film. So I re-watched the film after I finished this and realized why. They changed many, many key points (as often happens). This is a long way to say that if you saw the movie and haven't read/heard the book, the movie is a faint shadow and Grisham fans will love it.
Obviously the story is dated, especially from a technological point of view, but it's still worth it.
I heard a lot of books narrated by Scott Brick and this is by far one of his finest performances.
You never have to wait for anything if you bring a good book.
I've read the paper version of dozens of Grisham novels, but this story disappoints mainly because the narration is so sluggish and colorless. The narrator fails to differentiate voices - except for several characters who are given vague southern or New York accents, but what really hurts is a pace that is almost agonizingly slow.
Another drawback for the audiobook is that the Tom Cruise film (1993) featured a screenplay that was so nicely crafted and tightly paced that the original story seems clunky and unsatisfying by comparison.
All and all, Grisham makes it a worth while read, but I was more than a little disappointed by the lackluster narration, especially for a title that demands a premium price.
no first one
great read kept me interested the whole time looking forward to more fro this author
I kept thinking, "Oh no, watch out for that guy you can't trust him"..."It's no good, Mitch, you're smarter than that...no, no!" I was with him all the way!
I loved Mitchs' creativity! No wonder he was 5th in his graduating class! I loved how he handled Them. And he was cool in every sense of the word.
That was the only part I didn't care for about the story. He tried to be so slick and he came off sounding "smarmey". His accents were all off. Sorry, couldn't do it in '3 words'.
When Abbey confronted the Fibbie on the bus and relayed to him so much info about the operation.....he was confounded that she knew so much and wasn't even aware of who she was. And then when she told him just how many files they had copied ...... Wow! He was amazed. He knew he wasn't dealing with just any lawyer.
Once I knew this Bendino Law Firm had thier hooks into Mitch, I couldn't put my mp3 down. I had watched the Firm on tv last year, so I had him in my mind.......mmmmm.
I have long wanted to listen to the audiobook of The Firm but Audible only had an abridged version. When I saw that they had added an unabridged version, read by my favorite narrator Scott Brick, nonetheless, I jumped on it. The book is very good but winds up deviated significantly from the book. The story is definitely entertaining, but I have to admit, this is one of those rare cases where I think I preferred the film. That being said, it is an excellent audiobook that was engrossing and kept me engaged. As such, I am happy to give it four stars.
A better narrator would have helped. He couldn't keep my interest.
I think Avery was my favorite character because he didn't pretend to be anyone else but himself.
I knew there was a reason I didn't want to listen to this book. I have heard Scott Brick read other books and he was fine, not my favorite. He didn't do justice to the book. He didn't add any emotion. He just read it.
I was disappointment with the reading of the store. I have seen the movie version which was very well done.
The book itself keeps me hanging on every word. My commute to work goes much more quickly. His performance makes it even more exciting. I keep this one on my phone even when I rotate other books around
