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.
Having read most of Mr colfers offerings I was not disappointed with this amazing adventure!
I like the way he has tied in characters from his other swashbuckling title The airman of which I also strongly recommend.
