Sintesi dell'editore

They call themselves the Brethren: three disgraced former judges doing time in a Florida federal prison. One was sent up for tax evasion. Another, for skimming bingo profits. And the third, for a career-ending drunken joyride. Meeting daily in the prison law library, taking exercise walks in their boxer shorts, these judges-turned-felons can reminisce about old court cases, dispense a little jailhouse justice, and contemplate where their lives went wrong.

Or they can use their time in prison to get very rich - very fast. And so they sit, sprawled in the prison library, furiously writing letters, fine-tuning a wickedly brilliant extortion scam - while events outside their prison walls begin to erupt. A bizarre presidential election is holding the nation in its grip - and a powerful government figure is pulling some very hidden strings. For the Brethren, the timing couldn't be better. Because they've just found the perfect victim....

My Favorite Grisham to Date

I've read (listened) to most of Grisham's work, and this is my favorite thus far. I really enjoy Grisham's dry sarcasm, and this book is full of it.

Great Read

This was my first audible book and I enjoyed it immensely. The narration was wonderful, and the storyline kept me involved from the first page to the last. I almost wanted my hour long commute each way to work to be longer.

This'll work!

Very cool story. Grisham interwove two seemingly disjointed tales into each other gracefully. There wasn't much of a "mystery" involved as the reader can easily guess where the story is going. That fact, however, doesn't take anything away from the sheer brilliance of Grisham's storytelling effort here.

Grisham broke out of the cookie cutter mold with this novel. There is no "good guy". Every character has a different angle and motivation but they're all crooks. It's great fun! The narration is fantastic.

Give it a whirl.

One of his best books

I love the humor that Grisham spews in his novels & this book is overflowing with it. By far this is one of my favorite Grisham's.
Frank Muller has a wonderful reading voice & captures the story fully, it is sad that he is no longer with us.

Exciting and humorous with clever twist

I thoroughly enjoyed this book ?another one of Grisham's best. Frank Muller, as usual, is a splendid narrator.

The Brethren is a pungent study of morality with characters drawn from a clear comprehension of human nature. Spicer, Beech and Yarber will no doubt plummet to the same fatal calamity as treacherous Trevor.
It's not good to be too greedy.

Good story, bad reading

Grisham again manages to weave an intricate plot and surprise a reader with unpredictable twists and turns. Unfortunately, Frank Muller's reading was so obnoxious, it was a struggle to finish listening to it. The exaggerated breathiness and painful intonation were irritating and distasteful. I don't know what Muller was paid for this travesty, but it was too much. Needless to say, I won't buy anything more he may have loaned his voice to.

The Brethran

I'll never know if the Brethren is another great book from John Grisham, unless I read it. That's because, try as I would, I could not get past the 1st chapter. The fault was not the story, but the reader Michael Beck. I'll never know if he got any better latter in the story, because I could not get past Beck's sandpaper-grating, reading style. He ended every sentence,no matter its meaning or intensity, in exactly the same way; the dropping off of a well-read sentence, into the dying guttural whisper one would reserve, only for the confidential emphasize that danger was ahead. When I heard my inside self saying "please, not this sentence too" only to hear Beck do it again, I knew it was time to call it quits. For the first time in the 54 years I've been reading, I asked for a refund on a book!

Lame Recording

Would you try another book from John Grisham and/or Frank Muller?

I love John Grisham novels

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Brethren?

The story

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Not at all

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointed that the recording is so poor. I've streamed and listened to the story from my local library. There is nothing wrong with that recording. The Audible recording repeated sentences in each chapter and would unexpectedly drop in volume. Frustrating.

Any additional comments?

Is Audible able to offer a better recording?

Another home run

What can I say?? Just a great story made better by the narrator, Frank Muller. His passing last summer leaves big shoes to fill for future narrators.
