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?

Loved this narration by Frank Muller!

This is one of my favorite audio books of all time. Frank Muller does a masterful job with this narration.

Good not his best

Very good book. Good movie. Movie goes with the book pretty good except for one minor detail. The suit is over different issues.

Once again, Grisham doesnt disappoint!

I have already listened to this twice!
It was well done and the reading was excellent.
The movie sucked compared to the book but, oh well.
Another well done book by Mr. Grisham.

Ho-Hum

For all of the concentration on the jury, that is the focus of the plot of course, it's not much of a courtroom book since it deals more with the machinations of the guy who has inserted himself on to the jury.

The story itself isn't very plausible, and you wind up with a plot that works too seamlessly to be believable.

And through all of that, Grisham still did a poor job of convincing the reader why people shouldn't be responsible for their own actions.

Awesome!

I have found that the narrator is key to making a great audible book. I haven’t ever seen the movie, but feel like I have after listening to this version. John Grisham is an excellent writer and the narrator brought this to visualization in a new way for me. Going to watch the movie this weekend!

Grisham's third best book

Where does The Runaway Jury rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Much better than average. There's a reason Grisham sells more books than the run of the mill thriller writers.

What did you like best about this story?

Pacing. Suspense.

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

The main thing is not to distract from the story. The Southern accents add but do not subtract.

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

Not extreme. But always wanted to get back to it as soon as possible.

Any additional comments?

Grisham's third best book after A Time to Kill and The Firm. Stellar suspense. Simple and incomparable legal knowledge.

Great! Narration was fantastic. The narrator did a great job in capturing all the different characters which helped in keeping the characters straight in my mind.

Great story.

This was a good read and I wanted to follow it through to the end. The characters were great and you were not sure where the story was going. In the end I admired the main characters for their determination, planning, and how they played their game. Well worth the credit.
