Although the story was a good one, I found the narration poor. I was excited when I read Grisham would be narrating his own book, but pauses and inflections in the storyline made it tedious to sit through. The individual(s) editing the audio could have helped in this regard by cutting out the ill-timed pauses.

I have read almost all of Grisham's books and rarely have I been disappointed. The stories of Ford County were most enjoyable. The problem was the reading! I am sorry to say this, but the editor who let Grisham read his own book, should be demoted. He/she should have been strong enough to say "John, I love your writing, but fella, you can't read to save your life!!! If you want to sell this work, let someone else do the reading.
I have been an Audible listener for many years. This was the most difficult listen I can remember.
My strong recommendation is that you buy the book or download it to your Kindle and read it the old fashioned way.
I have never been so moved to write a review, but I felt compelled to save the listener the agony of the start and stop, naration that sounds as though it is the first time Grisham is reading an unfamiliar work, not one he wrote himself.
