  • "Half the length, twice the enjoyment"

    Overall

    If John Grisham wrote this story to reach a wider audience, I think he will succeed. This novel is far less technical than his legal thrillers, and much less tense. Still, the story moves along with pace and humour, and the characters are all believable and interesting.

    The narrator does a good job and by the end I was hoping the book would go on longer. Great story, brilliantly told.

    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.

  • "FIrst Book, when's the next one?"

    0 of 0 helpful votes

    Just finished listening to The Crusher.

    Let's get the criticism out of the way. Some of the plot points are a little implausible.

    On the plus side though, the main character, Finn Maguire, is likeable, tough and savvy. The characters are believable and the book has good pace. Suffice to say, that I've been taking every opportunity to listen to more of the story whilst walking my dogs, driving in the car and, sneakily, in my office.

    I note from the biography that Niall Leonard writes for TV, which explains some the of graphic descriptions and settings. I think that this is a very "visual" book.

    I'm writing this review as I've been looking for any more audio books by Niall Leonard or book 2 of Crushers life as the ending seems to be a set up for future volumes. Disappointed that, at the time of writing, there isn't one. But I'm prepared to wait.

    I've thoroughly enjoyed Crusher. It's a good story, well told and very well read. I'll be looking for any other books read by Daniel Weyman.

    Fletcher Moon has never been like other kids. For one thing, he has had to suffer the humiliating nickname "Half Moon" because of his short stature. But the real reason Fletcher is different is that ever since he was a baby, he's had a nose for sniffing out mysteries. And let's just say, it's not a skill that has been appreciated by many people, including his own family.
