  • "Another classic"

    Overall

    John Grisham is one of my favourite authors and this doesn't disappoint. A very different book for him, but as always it is a page turner. Its all about young Theo and how he gets involved in a big murder case. You may think its far fetched, but when you read this you will realise its not. Highly recommended listen.

    Half the man, twice the lawyer. In the small city of Strattenburg, there are many lawyers, and though he's only 13 years old, Theo Boone thinks he's one of them. Theo knows every judge, policeman, court clerk - and a lot about the law. He dreams of being a great trial lawyer, of a life in the courtroom. But Theo finds himself in court much sooner than he expected. Because he knows so much - maybe too much - he is suddenly dragged into the middle of a sensational murder trial.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Demon Dentist to be better than the print version?

    Not read print version, so no idea.


    Would you recommend Demon Dentist to your friends? Why or why not?

    Only for children aged 9 or over, and not of a nervous disposition!


    Any additional comments?

    Very very dark. We didn't find it as funny as the previous books. I find it amusing that reviews I read before buying, only warned of the disclosure that the tooth fairy is not real. Presumably these people think that the main character having all their teeth removed without anaesthetic, and then later being dangled over a vat of acid designed to strip the flesh from their bones is OK? My 9 year old children found it quite disturbing, and went decidedly pale at times. That being said, they didn't want to turn it off........

I like to learn interesting stuff on midnight runs. And I need absorbing children's audio to stay sane on long car journeys.
