Publisher's Summary

Theodore Boone is back in a new adventure, and the stakes are higher than ever....

When his best friend, April, disappears from her bedroom in the middle of the night, no one, not even Theo Boone - who knows April better than anyone - has answers. As fear ripples through his small hometown and the police hit dead ends, it's up to Theo to use his legal knowledge and investigative skills to chase down the truth and save April.

Filled with the kind of pause-resistant suspense that has made John Grisham a number-one international best seller and the undisputed master of the legal thriller, Theodore Boone's trials and triumphs will keep listeners guessing until the very end.

Crack another case with Theodore Boone.

Booring

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I am not sure who would enjoy this. I was waiting for a twist, a plot, some excitment and it was so dissapointing.

Would you ever listen to anything by John Grisham again?

Yes, but I'd have to really read other readers comments. I rely heavily on them

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narration was fine with what he had to work with.

Any additional comments?

A real dud for a mystery novel.

One of the few series my 10 year old son enjoys...

Any additional comments?

We listened to book 1 last summer on a car trip, and my son (who normally tolerates the car trip audio book) has been asking about more Theo on a regular basis. With another long trip planned, I downloaded book 2, and he was thrilled. Theo remains a solidly good kid - a loyal friend, respectful son, and budding lawyer. The secondary characters add interest and humor, since Theo and his parents are pretty straight-laced. We have book 3 ready for listening on the ride back home. Definitely worth the credit (or just purchase) as a family listen (upper elementary/middle school).

Grisham Nails Another One!

Would you listen to Theodore Boone: The Abduction again? Why?

Yes. It was an entertaining story, and although I would know the outcome I would enjoy the, "getting there."

What did you like best about this story?

Theodore's level of knowledge of the law is believable for a kid who grew up in a courthouse in a small town. Fortunately for him, the judges and clerks are patient and tolerant of him, as he sometimes stretches the envelope of the concept of "unauthorized practice of law!"

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

Theodore, of course! He is the type of young man I wish I had been at his age!

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

"Theodore Saves The Girl!"

Any additional comments?

I hope John Grisham continues the series and follows Theodore into his teen years.

Excellent

Would you listen to Theodore Boone: The Abduction again? Why?

Yes I would listen to this book again because I love John Grishams writing style.

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

There could be no comparison with another write because John Grisham has got such a wonderful writing skill, no one could compare to his books.

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

Richard Thomas brought strength to the book in the way he spoke, he has a wonderful voice and that helped in being interested at all times.

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

With my schedule it is hard to listen to books in one sitting but I found myself at home listening at great lengths.

Any additional comments?

I am looking forward to John Grishams next book and hoping that Richard Thomas will be the one to read.

Just wasn't that Good

I was so disappointed in this story, especially knowing this guy can write awesome stories. I just wanted a refund. I could have predicted this setting and ending easily.
