Great story but..............
What did you love best about The Client?
The story line was good and the characters were well described and fun to get to know.
What did you like best about this story?
The characters and the fact that it was based on a child (Mark) as the main character.
What three words best describe Blair Brown’s voice?
clear, pleasant, appropriate for the story
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It made me smile often due to the character traits of Mark. He's a cool kid.
Any additional comments?
I listen to quite a few audio books and the only thing I did not like about this one was the music that continued to play over the narration. It was distracting and did not add to the story. I would not have minded hearing some music between chapters or before a turn in the story line for emphasis, but music should never be playing while the narrator is speaking. It was annoying and almost made me stop listening to this book.

Thin storyline, jarring music
This is one of the worst Grisham books I've listened to. Very thin storyline, little action, no suspense. Maybe it's because I listened to the abridged version, which is something I never do. Still, I was grateful when it was over. I don't know if I could have listened to the entirety of the unabridged version.
The characters were tired caricatures, especially the cranky judge. No substance to any of them.
This reading also had some loud, obnoxious musical interludes sprinkled in. The music didn't fit the story and was quite annoying.
I'm not a big fan of Blair Brown but she was okay in this instance.
