The Testament by John Girsham
I read this book in hard copy form when it was first released. It's one of my favorites by John Grisham. With my new iPod in hand, I decided to download a few books for my upcoming vacation. This was one of my selections. It was almost seven years since I read the book, but I still remembered the basic story/plot. Not only is this an OUTSTANDING book, it was made even more exciting by the reader. The reader's qualities kept me "in" the book just as much as Grisham's wonderful style. Spring for it ... you'll enjoy it. I guarantee it!
THE TESTAMENT by John Grisham
I read this book a few years ago and thought it was such a find that I passed it on to several friends. The book hasn't had the hype it deserves, most of my friends hadn't heard of it. I thought the main characters were absolutely compelling. (I personally pictured Harrison Ford as Nate when I read it the first time.) The story really draws you in because it's unique, different from most of Grisham's other novels (I like most of his work - but this is one of my favs). I am going to buy it on itunes now because I lost my hard copy (it was never returned and I don't remember who had it last.)
This is by far one of the best books I have read in years. Each chapter keeps you hungry for the next. You can immerse yourself into the charatcters and live the story as you read it. Absolutely awesome.
