A Learning Point

A few years ago, I read the first three books in the Theodore Boone Series. I am not sure why I failed to continue reading the series; but here I am reading book number seven in the series. Grisham wrote the series for young people. I was impressed that he did not write down to the kids but instead make them reach up.

Theodore is now a fifteen-year-old eighth grader who is interested in the law. His friends seek out his opinions and his help. There is always a moral issue to the story. I think this would be a great book to read with young people as it has terrific discussion points and also teaching points. The audiobook would be excellent on a summer road trip. The book discusses how a bad decision could have serous life changing results.

The book is four hours and thirty-eight minutes. Richard Thomas does an excellent job narrating the book. Thomas is an American actor. He has won an Emmy Award and two Golden Globe Awards. As a book narrator he has won the Earphone Award.

Are you serious?

This was the worst book I ever listened too! John Grisham has lost his mind...wow!

The story was ridiculous, there was not a moment of suspense and if I could get a refund and a check for listening to this mess I would take it in a heart beat...11 hours of my life I will never get back!

Not up to John Grisham's caliber

This read is more like "Andy Hardy Meets Gavin Newsom and Plans Reform". Most disappointing.

Save your rant for the editorial page

I understand that there are issues with the bail system in this country, but please don't disguise your editorial opinion as a 4 and a half hour novel. Not much story and a whole lot of bluster about the failings of the system. Maybe all the truly great lawyers and reformers are busy writing books?

Lovely series....

No struggles to listen to Richard Thomas. I loved this series and it will make a great gift for young or old. The characters were well written but it was J. G. who is a favorite, so I expected as much. Looking forward to the next book. SLKW

Hardy Boys with a Dash of Civics

I have to admit that I just saw a title of a new book by John Grisham and ordered it. I had no idea it was part of a series for young readers. Despite that, I found it to be very charming and reminiscent of the Hardy Boys with a good dollop of what is missing in American education these days – civics. I strongly recommend this book and the series to provide kids with a better sense of how our legal system works.

This is a kid’s book! Please read the reviews.

Please understand that this is a book written for kids. My guess is the target audience is middle schoolers. The protagonist, Theo Boone, is a 13 year old aspiring attorney who is himself the son of two attorneys. Young Theo handles cases in “animal court”. Obviously this is not a typical Grisham adult novel.

The themes are adolescent, albeit with adult idealistic overtones. I don’t recall a single curse word in this book, nor any overt sexuality. That stated, it was a cute book for kids that some fun loving adults might enjoy (as long as they read this review beforehand. ;)
