Publisher's Summary

In Biloxi, Mississippi, a landmark tobacco trial with hundreds of millions of dollars at stake begins routinely, then swerves mysteriously off course. The jury is behaving strangely, and at least one juror is convinced he's being watched. Soon they have to be sequestered. Then a tip from an anonymous young woman suggests she is able to predict the jurors' increasingly odd behavior. Is the jury somehow being manipulated, or even controlled? If so, by whom? And, more important, why?

    "Got a little tedious"

    The story went on a bit too long. I have spent a lot of time in Biloxi and have never heard it pronounced the way the narrator pronounced it. That was rather distracting for me. Glad it's over and took the twist I thought it would. Have read enough of Grisham books to know there is always a twist at the end.

    "One of Grisham's best"

    Grisham gives us a look into the way trials with big money involved could take place. I know the book is fiction but it makes one wonder if jury tampering is common. Frank Muller did an amazing job with the narration. Would highly recommend the book to my friends.

    "Very engaging audio book"
    What made the experience of listening to The Runaway Jury the most enjoyable?

    i liked the narrator's voice and I thought he did a great job with the various character voices.


    What does Frank Muller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brought an energy to the reading that i may have not felt on my own


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no, but that does not mean it was not engaging. there is a lot to digest in this book and a lot of characters. i liked taking the time to think about what I had heard before moving on to the next section.

    Great book. Frank Muller is my favorite narrator.
    I never get bored with John Grisham novels, he's the best.

    Story
    "I learned so much about cigar addiction"

    I don't think this is one of the best of Grisham books. Is really one of the bad ones in my humble opinion. My main problem was that I didn't like the heroes. I disliked really both of them. However, I learned a lot about nicotine addiction. I always have despised my in--laws for being so hook on tobacco. I always thought that they were just stupid people. It something makes you ill what is the point of keeping doing it. I understand now, that is not that simple.

    "Catch story!"

    Keeps you hooked, easy to follow. But get a little predictable towards the second half.

    "GREAT BOOK AND MOVIE"

    This is one of the books that make me think of John Grisham. Same story as the move the only change up is the smoking indusrty and the gun industry. I love John Cusack in this move and the same in the book. great book

    Story
    "Different than movie in one big way, but great sto"
    If you could sum up The Runaway Jury in three words, what would they be?

    Worth your time


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Somewhat. There's a lot of things going on and you wonder how they will turn out.


    Have you listened to any of Frank Muller’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but he did a good job. Read at a good pace and did a good job of changing his voice for different characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, it was just a good way to pass time.


    Any additional comments?

    Interestingly, the defendant in the book is the tobacco industry. In the movie, it is the gun industry. Everything else is the same except for the motivation of Nick and his girl friend. I'm curious why they made the change in the movie. Maybe because there had already been a lawsuit against the tobacco companies by then?

    "Great story"

    Not my favorite narrator... but I love the book, so I deal with it. He makes every phrase sound suspenseful... Which isn't always necessary.
