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 juror's increasingly odd behavior. Is the jury somehow being manipulated, or even controlled? If so, by whom? And, more important, why?

Yet another great book by John Grisham

I enjoyed reading this book for many reasons. For one, being a former smoker myself I found it to be very informative on the very real effects tobacco can have on ones lungs & in turn health. As always John Grisham did his research. This is not the first time I've read this book & I'm sure it won't be my last!

hugely disappointing

What disappointed you about The Runaway Jury?

There is weird and distracting music between chapters and at random times.

What was most disappointing about John Grisham’s story?

Having seen the movie first, the book is difficult to listen to.

Would you be willing to try another one of Michael Beck’s performances?

Yes, definitely. Bought this for Michael Beck's great performance, especially Sycamore Row and A Time to Kill.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

John Grisham's books and Michael Beck's narration are generally excellent.

JURY

Would you listen to The Runaway Jury again? Why?

Yes. Great storyline, kept my interest.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Favorite: NicolasReason: Very smooth

What about Michael Beck’s performance did you like?

STELLAR! I have listened to 98% of his books. GREAT, GREAT VOICE.

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

No...not an extreme. I was sorry the blind man was bumped but other than that...no.

Any additional comments?

Great book and another good one for John G. Though this book was written years back, I enjoyed it more than Sycamore Row (S.R.) And though S. R. was a great book, it became a major disappointment when I became suspicious of Judge Rubin Atlee, who was alive, (ALIVE), sitting on his porch talking about his two sons, Ray and Forrest. Ray and Forrest? Aren't they in the Summons? In the book, the Summons, Rubin Atlee died and his two sons were called home to handle his estate, found a boat load of money in the house and Forrest, ran off with it (though the book doesn't say he did. What? Really John? Awww, now that was a major disappointment for me ... MAJOR!!!
