    Story
    "A delightful series"

    This is the third book in a series for children but adults will enjoy it also. This book is a good choice for a family car trip. The story picks up from book 2 with the start of the trial for a man accused of killing his wife. In the last book Theodore class had permission to attend the trial as part of the class work but as the second trial begins the permission is revoked and only Theodore may attend and report back to the class. The story moves quickly into one attack after another on Theodore, his locker at school broken into and items missing, tires slashed on his bike the he is accused of stealing. The story provides some lessons on bullying, facing false accusation and honesty. The pace of the story is fast, never a dull moment. Richard Thomas does a great job reading the story. If you listen to the book with your children or grandchildren there are a number of interesting discussion topics in the story that should lead to great family discussions. Everyone in the family will enjoy this book.

    "This is a kids story!"

    At first I was ticked off at the narrator,,, then I was ticked off at the author. This is a KIDS story!!! Then I was ticked off at myself for not reading the summary in detail. I just didn't expect that from Grisham

    THEN I cooled down and realized it really a pretty good story for the pre-teen listeners, especially if they can talk it over with their parents. Several topics are explored that are black & white for kids have lots of grey areas in reality. Making the right decision isn't all that clear
    Well done

    "Not a bad story!"
    Any additional comments?

    The Book, although (I feel) marketed for a younger crowd, was actually pretty good. I like the character. And the read was great!! I got the other two books on here. I should have gotten the earlier versions first. I Look forward to them. Theo is a good character.

    "Fun for the family"

    I really enjoy these books with my daughter. It's a great stepping stone to interest her in the greater stories to come by John Grisham and Scott Turow.

    "Good, Fun Listening."
    What made the experience of listening to Theodore Boone: The Accused the most enjoyable?

    My kids aged 11 loved the reference to previous book of John Grisham and how it flowed into the next book. The author does a neat job of connecting the accused with the actual guilty part. Not scary, so no parts that my kids freak out on. they just hate getting out of the car


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Theodore Boone: The Accused?

    I think it was time with Ike, Theo's uncle. He gives lots of good leads that make things more fun.


    What about Richard Thomas’s performance did you like?

    Richard Thomas has a wonderful voice that captures the feeling of the book as if you were there. He speaks slowly when reinforcing or teaching a new concept so my kids have time to let it sink in.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Dunno


    Any additional comments?

    This book had excitement, drama, and humor all neatly packaged by Grisham and delivered by Richard Thomas. A really nice combo. We just listened to The Activist and are really disappointed there aren't any other books of his in the series.

    I enjoy mysteries, science fiction, Stephen King, and some fantasy novels. Now and again I like a biography and a bit of history. No romance!

    "An entertaining story"
    If you could sum up Theodore Boone: The Accused in three words, what would they be?

    Comfortable, Entertaining, Surprising


    What other book might you compare Theodore Boone: The Accused to and why?

    Well, the book is the second in a series, so naturally, it reminded me of the first book, "Theodore Boone, Kid Lawyer". It also reminds me of the old "Hardy Boys" mysteries.


    Which character – as performed by Richard Thomas – was your favorite?

    I enjoy his performance of all the characters but Theodore's Uncle Ike is my favorite.


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

    For me, this wasn't a book of extremes. It's a nice, entertaining story. I lughed at some of Theodore's observations about the grown ups in his life. The author writes this series with young readers in mind, so I know I am not the target audience. I enjoyed it very much in spite of that. I think it is the sort of book that a parent and child could both read and then discuss without either one being bored.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoy the characters that the author has created for this series and I look forward to finding out more about them.

    "This was the best of the Boone books so far"

    I've heard three of the Theodore Boone books, and this was my favorite. I love the Uncle and his relevance to Theodore's evolution. The plot is good, and the situations believable. I am intrigued that Grisholm wrote these books for the teen audience. He did a superb job of it and made it interesting to adults too.

    "Good but...."
    Any additional comments?

    Let me start by saying I enjoyed this book. If you've read any of Grisham's adult novels then you are aware how good he is at developing characters and this book was well done in that regard.

    The book also held my interest til the end. It was a fun ride. Fun that is until the end. And that's where this book disappoints. There were several threads that ran through the story that were never resolved. These were not incidents that were mentioned in passing by some obscure character, but one thread in particular kept popping up over and over again. Part of the reason I was enthralled with the story was because I wanted to know what would happen to one particular character and how that situation would be resolved. When I finished the book and was left hanging, I felt cheated.

    This series has a lot of potential and I hope Grisham will write more. I just hope that in some future book he will let us know the resolution to some of these dangling little threads.
