Slow

Slow is an understatement. Also, the narrator keeps mispronouncing Appalachia! Very annoying. I’m used to Americans mispronouncing words but it still gives me the shits.

Oh Dear!!!!

Where does Gray Mountain rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's up there with other good books I have read but it is not great.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Gray Mountain?

The end!!!!!!!!!

What does Catherine Taber bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The characters.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

I wouldn't it has such a dreadful ending with no hint of a sequel.

Any additional comments?

This had all the makings of a great novel but to end it on such a way was the last straw for me. Is there a sequel coming out???

What a painful lead character

This story dragged itself along like a three legged dog and was repetitious and slow.

The lead character, Samantha, was a completely unsympathetic, detached, cynical and uninteresting woman who failed to improve in the telling.

The subject, coal mining and its dreadful human and environmental impacts, had the makings of a ripping narrative which Grisham absolutely failed to deliver.

Don't waste your money. It's writing by numbers.

Expected more

Felt the story hadn't reached its end, left hanging on what happens to the court cases.

Very entertaining

This book has a bit of everything in it. Romance, suspense, relationship issues and has highs and lows. The pros & cons of mining and job loss is a very current issue.

Not the best of John Grisham

I kept listening, thinking it'll get better and it didn't. I didn't like the accent either.

Not bad...

I really like most of John Grisham's stuff except for maybe a couple of heavily ball sport ones. No complaints about Gray Mountain I don't think. Terrible thing that strip mining.

One the most most boring books ever

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

From beginning to end there was no real story. It ended like it started. I don't believe this book was written by John Grisham.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointing
