This is the third book in a series for children but adults will enjoy it also. This book is a good choice for a family car trip. The story picks up from book 2 with the start of the trial for a man accused of killing his wife. In the last book Theodore class had permission to attend the trial as part of the class work but as the second trial begins the permission is revoked and only Theodore may attend and report back to the class. The story moves quickly into one attack after another on Theodore, his locker at school broken into and items missing, tires slashed on his bike the he is accused of stealing. The story provides some lessons on bullying, facing false accusation and honesty. The pace of the story is fast, never a dull moment. Richard Thomas does a great job reading the story. If you listen to the book with your children or grandchildren there are a number of interesting discussion topics in the story that should lead to great family discussions. Everyone in the family will enjoy this book.

What made the experience of listening to Theodore Boone: The Accused the most enjoyable?
The mystery ultimately gets solved and this extension of the earlier books helps carry the story forward. I wish all of Grisham's books were like that.
What other book might you compare Theodore Boone: The Accused to and why?
The series was fun reading and should be required reading for civics class in Junior High.
Have you listened to any of Richard Thomas’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I think he is a terrible reader, but a great narrator. He does not change voice inflection so that one can easily tell who is speaking.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I did because it was convenient.
Any additional comments?
I love the series and wish Grisham would write a sequel to The Partner, it begs for a sequel .
