©1997 John Grisham; (P)2000 BBC Audiobooks Limited
John Grisham's writing is like a fish hook, caught the moment it swings past your face.
I don't know what it is but Johnny manages it. Always.
No, that would've been a bit intense, but I easily spent 6 hours straight listening to it.
Keep you in the dark till the end. Worth buying
Yes. The twist in the story
"A good listen but weak ending"
This is the first John Grisham book I have read or listened to and I did enjoy it. Lots of twists and turns to keep you wondering and keep you listening. Did feel the ending was a bit weak but don't let that put you off.
"Really liked this book"
It had the quality writing you expect from John Grisham but is actually much lighter on legal battles than you usually find in his books. The Partner has a compelling story line and I found myself seeking every opportunity to listen to it trying to discover what happened next. It was quite a simple concept of a great deal of money being stolen, but the unravelling was compelling and surprising. Recommended.
"Intricate, well-plotted story"
This is clever and intricately plotted thriller that kept me listening. There are many characters, most of whom are on the trail of Patrick Lanigan and the 90 million dollars that he is alleged to have stolen from a transaction carried out by his former law firm. The author's legal background adds authenticity as the FBI, the courts and insurance companies get involved and plea bargains are struck. The narrator is is excellent and I can recommend this as an enjoyable and enthralling listen.
"FANTASITIC - worthy of 10 stars"
This book is really great and the twist is not revealed until the last moments and leaves you wanting more. I listened to it a second time straight after just to see if I could spot the ending sooner. By far the best so far.
I have read every John Grisham book and I have to say that this really is the best. The twists and turns are 'mostly' unpredictable and so very, very clever. I don't ever remember reccomending a book to anyone before but this one i have, if you like courtroom drama, intrigue and surprises, this is the book for you.What an excellent read... hope they are in the process of screenwriting for a movie!
