great characters and a story that tugs at the heart. Humanity versus big business and profit.

Oh dear!

What would have made Gray Mountain better?

I love John Grisham's novels. I have read them all so the instant I knew his latest one was out on Audible, I bought it. However, this was not exactly the usual Grisham literary gold!

The story is predictable, trite and - I never thought I would write this about a Grisham novel - boring! The protagonist is female and sometimes the narrative feels more like a bad chick-lit novel, particularly when the dialog is between two women. No, dear John G., women do not talk about their sexual adventures minutes after meeting each other. The romantic encounters told through his protagonist are toe-curling and hackneyed and I couldn't help thinking that all it would have taken him to make the female lead credible (and less annoying!) would just have been to give her the voice that as he normally gives his male leads. Instead this woman is whinging, indecisive and not very likeable.

What didn’t you like about Catherine Taber’s performance?

The narration was wooden; monotone, abrupt and with so little tonal variation that it almost lulled me to sleep on several occasions.

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

I can highly recommend this book if you are suffering from insomnia, have a soft spot for Barbara Cartland morphed with Marian Keys and only need a light sprinkle of excitement.

Why was this ever published?

What disappointed you about Gray Mountain?

This book starts depressing, gets out a pick axe and digs itself deeper.

What was most disappointing about John Grisham’s story?

The story lacks any depth in narrative, plot or characters.
Examples of basic lack of research or even in touch with reality and practicality:-
Reference is continually made to 51mm calibre sniper rifles. That's 2 inches in US speak. That size would be a Cannon on wheels! What he meant was a 50 calibre which is 0.5 inches. Don't get excited, there's no gripping storyline attached.
There is some wandering around mountain areas described as 100 acres but to tie in with the narrative would be ten times that size.

Would you be willing to try another one of Catherine Taber’s performances?

Not having listened to any other narrations by Catherine it might be unfair to judge her with this one. I hope she thought it best to deepen and enhance the story's depths of depression.
She was successful.
One imagines her going in to therapy after completing the book.

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

Redeeming qualities? One hopes Grisham gets such a lashing with this book that he understands his followers expect better of him.

One redeeming line, obviously by accident, the heroine, in a light aircraft, puts on a headset and the pilot says "Say something". She says "Something".

Any additional comments?

I have no idea why Grisham's publisher didn't turn the manuscript down for the good of his reputation.

Oh Dear!!!!

Where does Gray Mountain rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's up there with other good books I have read but it is not great.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Gray Mountain?

The end!!!!!!!!!

What does Catherine Taber bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The characters.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

I wouldn't it has such a dreadful ending with no hint of a sequel.

Any additional comments?

This had all the makings of a great novel but to end it on such a way was the last straw for me. Is there a sequel coming out???
