Description

It's summer in Memphis. The sweat is sticking to Rudy Baylor's shirt and creditors are nipping at his heels. Once he had aspirations of breezing through law school and punching his ticket to the good life. Now he doesn't have a joy or a prayer...except for one: an insurance dispute that leaves a family devastated and opens the door for a lawsuit, if Rudy can find a way to file it. By the time Rudy gets to court, a heavyweight corporate defense team is there to meet him. And suddenly he's in over his head, plunged into a nightmare of lies and legal maneuverings. A case that started small is exploding into a thunderous million-dollar war of nerves, skill, and outright violence - a fight that could cost one young lawyer his life, or turn him into the biggest rainmaker in the land....

Very dissapointed with recording

The story is great (so far), and Frank Muller does a fantastic job. But I am honestly appalled that I had to spend my hard earned money on a recording that no one from the production team bothered to listen all the way through. I'm only just getting to the end of the first track and already at least 5 times there have been moments when an entire sentence is repeated by mistake. It pulls you right out of the story and spoils the mood. Just now I had a voice inform me that "the story is continued on disc 8"... honestly if a child submitted this in school as a finished product he'd be failed.
This is my first experience with substandard recordings as a fault of the people converting the audio to a digital format and I am bitterly disappointed.

Excellent Story...

This is my first review of a book. Perhaps it is odd that I would review this book after listening for the last five years to so many books and most of those books being science fiction, but this one is an incredible tale with suspense, intrigue, humanity, humor, triumph, defeat, sadness, joy and exceptional likability. Rudy Bailer is a young lawyer, not yet out of college who lands a big case because of a chance meeting in a less than enjoyable class in his last semester of law school. John Grisham draws and paints his characters with life and makes them believable and sympathetic. The main character is humorous and down to earth. Those of you who enjoy courtroom dramas will certainly enjoy this one. It's one of the best of his novels I've ever read (listened to).

The only, ever so slightly noticeable, detraction is that it is dated. Car phones and fax machines and very little mention of computers. That being said, it's a wild ride making you want more.

I'm sad it's over...

Four stars

Muller and Grisham. Those two names should be enough of a clue to any fan of unabridged audiobook fiction to know that this is a "can't miss" download. Get it. :)

Excellent reading

Although the story looks predictable (underdog freshgrad fighting against big corporation), it has so many surprising turnarounds that it keeps you looking forward for the next one. Narrator is awesome, he can play attractive woman, young lawyer as well as old lady.
5 stars!

Solid book, fantastic narration.

This is one of those titles that is a good book to begin with, but is made even better by simply excellent narration. This guy could read a phone book and make it interesting, but in this title he is given a sold plot making it a fantastic choice!

the RainMaker

the rainmaker by John Grisham I enjoyed this book immensely is the third one of his that I have listened to and enjoyed it the best. The actual recording was of the poorest quality that I've ever experienced with audible. Obviously the download was copied from a CD version of the book. At times the book was interrupted with the words to change the CD in mid-story. Every time a CD needed to be changed the previous sentence was reread. This was very distracting and I was very surprised they allow this quality to occur. It was very distracting and frustrating. When you pay over $20 for these books that should be of the highest quality. I rate the actual recording a one.

My favorite Grisham novel

I've listened to six or seven Grisham novels and previously liked The Broker as the best. That's before I listened to The Rainmaker. Grisham's books are like being on vacation when you have something especially sweet planned for the final day. You want to get to that last day, but you don't want your vacation to end. The Rainmaker was classic David versus Goliath with the predictable happening. And the ending, although not winner take all, was much more satisfying than the conclusion of The Partner. Grisham's books are different from each other but I've yet to listen to one that I was sorry I started. You can't say that about too many authors. This book is an excellent listen.

One of his best

Haven't read a Grisham novel yet that I didn't like, but this one was exceptionally good. I rode around the block a few times so I didn't have to stop listening.

the rainmaker

What a great book! I listened to it twice and enjoyed it both times. The characters were interesting and I loved the story. It gave me insite into the world of insurance, and arrogant lawyers. I would recommend it highly.

here's to the Truth!

The last two years in my life were spent battling for disability pay from my employer's insurance provider. It took so long it turned our lives upside down. Rainmaker, although not about disability payoff, still has an uncanny similarity to our experience. Funny thing, a short time ago we saw that real company on tv being interviewed with basically the same scandal of "Great Benefit" in the novel. Great telling, and sorry to tell you it can be the TRUTH

Repeats

Several times, a piece of about 5 seconds is repeated, and no, it's not a download error.
