After listening to Grisham's unabridged titles on Audible, this one is a little disappointing. The book is comparatively hard to follow, with characters easily confused or not developed - presumably due to the abridged nature of the text. I'd recommend this only for Grisham fans who've run through everything else.
Capably narrated, though by a different narrator than any of the other Grisham books.
An excellent yarn. Better than the movie, and the reason I purchased the audio book was because of the movie. Its the type of story that leaves you wishing that it hadn't come to the end yet. I'm a Science Fiction, Tolkien, Mystery and Classic addict. This is one story that will have me returning to hear it again, whereas, most Science Fiction listining is enough to hear once.
Though I felt like this book was a bit predictable it was exciting to listen to. The characters were vividly portrayed. The narrator performed different voices for all characters which I enjoyed!
Yes. I have listened to two additional books.
However, this audio book failed to follow the actual book and I enjoy following the story in the book while listening to the audio.
Follow the actual book!
Barely finished chapter one because of the lack of audio following the actual book!
There are a few places that seem "dated", but nothing to distracting. The story is solid and very entertaining. Grisham does an excellent job of ramping up the tension throughout. If I had to be critical I would say that this isn't Grisham's best character development. Darby and Gray seem a little flat and could be fleshed out some.
This was an horrible read, it did not really follow the movie or the book. Was this the abridged version of the book, or did the narrator just put in his own material...horrible listen.
The narrator is great, the plot suspenseful and the book is a bit different from the movie. Although you lose the translation with an abridged novel in terms of character development and subplots, I thought they did a really good job with this one.
