Short stories, I wish he would have finished them. Any one of them
John Grisham is one of my favourite authors and I could barely get through this book.
If there's one thing I am grateful for, is the fact that the first story, was indeed short because Jeff Daniels is a terrible, TERRIBLE narrator. Had this been a full length book, he would have ruined Jake Brigance for me.
I would not recommend this book.
The first two stories were a waste of time, it's hard to believe they were even published. I'm saying this as a long time hard core John Grisham fan. I have to wonder if he's even writing some of his latest works himself. The main story was ok, not the best I ever read but fairly enjoyable. I'm going to proceed with caution when it comes to Grishams future books, sadly.
All 3 novellas were riveting
I loved the story. John Grisham is my favorite author. I really like Micheal Beck reading the books. Micheal is also my favorite. He changes his voice for each character. Jeff Daniel's just reads tries to put a twang to the southern voice, but it doesn't work. it like my grandfather just reading the book. Not very entertaining..
Leave you hanging Not ended very well at all
Definitely not my favorite John Grisham book. Instead of feeling like three short exciting stories, it felt like bits and pieces of abandoned novel ideas were thrown into a book and called a "novella". Normally I'm a huge fan of the Jake Brigance / Clanton, MS storyline but these stories fell flat. They felt unfinished and rushed.
Liked the first and last story. Didn’t care for the second story, it was too depressing.
Because it’s a Grisham book people are going to want to read it, but please resist the urge. The last novella is the worst, but all 3 are bad. There’s no way anyone in the legal field reviewed this mess for accuracy and it just feels like Grisham pumped it out to hammer another check.
I wanted each novella to be longer, because John Grisham is great, as always!
John Grisham never disappoints me. I enjoyed all three of these stories. I am spoiled to having longer books, but at the beginning he forewarns us that this a group of novellas. Unlike American Soap Opera's - Novellas run for a limited time. With this in mind, enjoy these three stories, as I have. I wish the second one had been a little longer, but I was not disappointed.
