Might be for kids but my wife and I thought all of the Theodore Boone books were a great listen when traveling.
Well read and the voice matched the story
The plot was believable and interesting for a "guy". Am not so sure the gals will like this story as much....
Protagonist of course!
My only ding is the ending. I thought it could have been an hour longer and somehow tied the guy who murdered his wife into the whole thing...
Great for a car trip.
I liked how the story addressed the slippery nature of decision making and incorporated the legal ramifications into the process.
I liked Ike, Theodore's uncle, the best.
The narrator is very good and the story is classic Grisham. Sure, it is a kids story, but so is Harry Potter. The real hero of the story is Ike, Theodore's disbarred-lawyer uncle. He figures out who committed the crime and put Theo on the trail. Theo has to make a moral decision about whether to look in a computer system at his parents' law office.
Theo's parents, teachers, school administrators and scoutmaster all believed in him, even when the cops acted like he was guilty.
The narrator is great and he has just the right touch for The Theodore Boone series.
Nothing extreme. It was just fun entertainment. However, we did have to ask ourselves whether Ike was giving his nephew good advice.
No particular scene, I do think he did a good job of feeling like you're in the mind of a young boy.
The story was fine, just written for a young reader.
Richard Thomas really brings Theo to life.
I loved the continuity between all three of the books so far.
If you put a gun to my head and made me say something negative about this book, it would be that it wasn't long enough. I cant wait for another installment.
I loved each of the Theodore Boone books. They are light, good plots and don't involve a lot of violence.
Judge Gantry -- great character. Fully in control, very stern on the outside, but with a sense of humor on the inside.
Thomas brings a balanced presentation and good expression. I think I probably would have missed both just reading the print version.
I would have really enjoyed this book when I was a tenn, however at this stage of my life this book was not very interesting or entertaining. This was probably made worse by the narration. Not a John Grishom story that I've become accustomed to reading and listening to -
