A Learning Point

A few years ago, I read the first three books in the Theodore Boone Series. I am not sure why I failed to continue reading the series; but here I am reading book number seven in the series. Grisham wrote the series for young people. I was impressed that he did not write down to the kids but instead make them reach up.

Theodore is now a fifteen-year-old eighth grader who is interested in the law. His friends seek out his opinions and his help. There is always a moral issue to the story. I think this would be a great book to read with young people as it has terrific discussion points and also teaching points. The audiobook would be excellent on a summer road trip. The book discusses how a bad decision could have serous life changing results.

The book is four hours and thirty-eight minutes. Richard Thomas does an excellent job narrating the book. Thomas is an American actor. He has won an Emmy Award and two Golden Globe Awards. As a book narrator he has won the Earphone Award.

Are you serious?

This was the worst book I ever listened too! John Grisham has lost his mind...wow!

The story was ridiculous, there was not a moment of suspense and if I could get a refund and a check for listening to this mess I would take it in a heart beat...11 hours of my life I will never get back!

Should be required reading in grammar school

Great insight into what happens when you make one mistake. A reminder that fun can lead to unintended consequences. It would be nice if everyone had a friend like Theodore Boone. I hope there are more books in this series in the future. I wish I could have read these books in my youth. If I only knew what I know now in my youth! Wonderful book.

Always a fan

I’ve always been a fan of John Grisham but knew nothing about Theo. Lots of enjoyment here; something you would like for your own family.

Ill Keep Listening Till Theo Gets Thru College!

A friend really loves Mr. Grisham, but his adult stories are beyond me in tension , fear and the harsher realities, so when I saw the first tale of Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer, that was instantly a sale. Working at a large law firm in LA, the sole client of which was Kaiser, back in the careless days, is my guess, gave me some introduction to the grind of our legal system. From a more experienced legal secretary I learned that law does not always produce justice - a real shock to my 20 plus something mind, wondering what was everyone doing, then? My escape was to occasionally haunt the law libraries on site, and found I really loved the ancient Anglo Saxon legal terms and agreements, and even bought a legal dictionary, which not only helps understand the terms, but gives some insight into the system's evolution, again, not always toward more democracy and fairness, such as when the English rich guys started encroaching on and illegalizing The Commons which allowed all the smaller landholders to graze their sheep, goats and cattle fairly. Interesting to me, these "small" fellows had a long history of working out agreements and practices for pretty much everyone's benefit. The working out of the law may have meant a lot of discussion and arguing, but with an ultimate view of sharing fairly.

In this one of the Series, Grisham was adept at making the young innocents seem frighteningly threatened, where my stomach tightened, and I had to stop and do some deep breathing. (You see why his adult stories are too much for my system.)
Two of Theo's friends, one a peer, 13 years of age, the other, his older brother of 16 years, have a mother who has to work
two to three jobs, so is not home for them as often as any of them would like, and with a divorced father who remains distant, and a step father whose job takes him often out of town, they are feeling somewhat strung out, needing not only the love, but
the interest, structure and guidance we all need when struggling to become our own adult with a strong moral and gut trusting compass.

They get invited for maybe pizza and a beer by an older car owning friend, and VOILA! the stage is set for a sticky little crime,
implicating the brothers.

What I love about Theo, is his sense of community and comradeship which is innate, and strong, so when the brothers are
tossed into jail, we can trust Theo's sense of justice, his taut reliability with certain adults in his life, and his ability to start to pull everyone together, though not always easily.

I'm of course leaving out the delicious details, because it is only about 4 1/2 hours, but it is a story that is happening every day
in families in many many cities and towns, and Grisham gracefully and with understatement shows how important the intelligent and active support persons in a community are to the stability of the present but to the future, for the generation coming up. This is starting to sound a little preachy, but you'll see what I mean, a good teacher, a willing and available uncle,
strict but loving, able parents, the Boy Scout leader, the Judge, and more. Oh, and of course, there is a funny scene in Animal
Court, which is becoming not only my favorite, but now an obligatory exercise of Theo's courtroom presence each time.

Hooked on Theo

I can now say I think I've read every book in the Theodore Boone Series...and TOTALLY enjoyed every one. The narration by Richard Thomas makes me feel like I'm back with the familiar! Thomas and Grisham for an audible book are like cherries
on a sundae!! I wish there were more in the series!!!
