    I throughly enjoyed this book. Could not wait to drive in to work - go to lunch nor drive home to get back to listening to it. Grisham tells such a good story. Really captivated you from the first paragraph. I did NOT like the use of the ā€œNā€ word despite his likely reason of authenticity. It was over used and unnecessary in my view to tell the story. Another appropriate term should have been used.
