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?

    "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.

    "Excellent story with terrific visual."

    Excellent but some pieces a little slow. Fun characters make it so credible. Ending is not predictable. One of his longer books.

    Story
    "Grisham and Muller at their best!"
    Where does The Runaway Jury rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Right at the top. It is a thrill ride, pure and simple. It is not a particularly meaty book, but it is a fun, captivating book, and a great way to spend some time.

    Frank Muller has outdone himself here; I was a bit wary after disappointing performances in "The Street Lawyer" and "The Partner", but he was terrific in "The Runaway Jury"!


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

    Definitely! This is one of the first Grisham books that I read, but it was the abridged version. I borrowed this unabridged version on tape from a friend years ago, and don't know why I waited so long to buy it from Audible!

    The unabridged version includes more tension than the abridged one; we knew more than the characters did. I wondered what the outcome of the trial would be...


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

    Yes, I have. I have both liked and disliked some of his performances; this one showcases his amazing talent, and I would use this book to recommend him as a narrator.
