Phenomenal book! Science fiction that's realistic and smart, but still remains approachable. Wil Wheaton does a great job of narrating, his tone is perfect for the story - and especially for the main character!

Decent story, sub-par narration

It's a pretty good story - not one of RJS's strongest, but I've never read a book of his that I disliked. However, the narration ruined it for me. The main character is French-Canadian, and the narrator is clearly an American who has never heard a French-Canadian speak. It was difficult to listen to his put-on accent throughout the book. Also, he butchered the pronunciation of a bunch of French and English words - dude, if you don't know how to pronounce "Québécois" or "phenylalanine", look it up!

Many errors

The stories were okay; not the best I've read from Grisham, but not bad. The second book, however, had many instances where sentences were repeated twice. Seems like the producer was asleep at the board.
