I first have to say that after finishing this book, I went to look at book 2, which is where I saw that this is a series designed for tweens teens LOLI m 58 years old and had just finished a 4 book series by Greg Isles that was about 3200 pages total with a lot of characters Excellent series, but I needed something less intense to read yet would keep my attention Grisham is an excellent writer and I have read some of his adult books as well That being said, I loved this book Easy read, about 10 characters, and I had to find out how it ended I almost didn t star reading book 2 in the 6 books series, but this time of year an easy read is what I needed If you re an adult, go ahead and read this series if you want to enjoy reading with little thinking If you have children who love mysteries and are in Grades 3 7, introduce them to an author for life I also should add that it was refreshing to read a book without a single word of profanity in it That just dawned me as I m typing this I will read this series about Theo Boone, 13 year old sleuth Half The Man, Twice The LawyerIn The Small City Of Strattenburg, There Are Many Lawyers, And Though He S Only Thirteen 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 A Cold Blooded Killer Is About To Go Free, And Only Theo Knows The Truth The Stakes Are High, But Theo Won T Stop Until Justice Is Served What Readers Are Saying About THEODORE BOONE I Thoroughly Enjoyed The Story Stars Brilliant Stars A Great Read Stars I Loved It Stars Fantastic Series Stars dopo aver comprato questo ho comprato anche gli altri 2 semplicemente fantastici Scritti in maniera magistrale dal grande John Grisham This title and the fact that it was John Grisham drew me to the book as I love his writing and I have such fond memories of two of my sons and how much they loved the mystery solving child Encyclopedia Brown My middle son could always solve the mystery long before the end cam while my oldest son was frustrated that he took longer figuring it out As always Grisham did not disappoint It is a charming and well written book. This is a terrific series for middle schoolers or elementary school kids with an advanced reading level The content is pretty mature Theodore Boone, the first book, is about a murder trial and the suspect is a slimy man suspected of killing his wife But no violent than most other books in this age group There is lots of great information about how the court system works and just good common sense and moral decision making This main character is wonderful A role model for how kids should behave today I can t wait to read the rest of the series They are all on my wish list. I love this Grisham novel written just for young adults I use it in my tutoring and teaching The main character is a middle schooler who wants to be a lawyer when he grows into manhood and his career He already knows much about the law than most adults His parents are both lawyers and he hangs around the courthouse and knows all the latest scoop on cases He happens to discover someone who witnessed a crime and has to decide what to do with this new important evidence. The premise behind this book really is quite clever Two highly successful lawyers marry, have a child, and surprise, surprise the offspring decides he wants to be a lawyer when he grows up A nice, realistic portrayal of life in a legal household The good thing about young Master Boone is that he is a very likeable character, both within the confines of the story, and beyond Readers will like him because of his relative modesty, his insecurities, his faults and his talents His fellow characters school friends like him because he is cool as.His parents, too, are far from perfect, as is the highlight for me of the book Uncle Ike That dude has SERIOUS ISSUES but we love him just the same.This book is FUN Even though it is obviously aimed at the younger teen reader, THEODORE BOON is a great introduction to the legal thriller as well as a way of making enquiring young minds think of life after the school years end John Grisham s writing style has always been an easy one to pick up he writes in the common, down to earth way that makes his books a joy to read This concept is extrapolated for the younger market and it works a treat in this book.Negatively speaking, I think the plot itself is the weak link in this story Basing the complete book around a murder trial is normally a safe bet, but this case is a little feeble, and a boring one at that There are, however, hints of suspense scattered throughout the story whenever Theo comes up against Omar Cheepe and I imagine he will have a role to play as we approach the end of the book.I give this book three stars, but in actuality your Honour it is like three and a half.BFN Greggorio L autore di decine di libri e film di successo, l inventore del genere legal thriller, si cimenta in una nuova sfida rendere appetibile la sua creatura giallistica anche ai ragazzi E lo fa attraverso la figura di uno di loro, Theodore Boone, un ragazzino americano di 13 anni, figlio di due noti avvocati civilisti e come tale, appassionato del diritto.Theo da grande vuole diventare un grande avvocato penalista e, nel frattempo, si diletta a fornire consigli legali ai suoi coetanei ed a frequentare le aule dei tribunali.In questo primo episodio la comunit di Strattenburg sconvolta da un grave fatto di sangue il ricco Peter Duffy accusato dell omicidio della moglie, strangolata nella propria lussuosa villa vicina al campo da golf della cittadina La polizia e la citt tutta sospetta che il signor Duffy sia colpevole, ma l accusa fatica a mettere insieme le prove giuste per inchiodarlo.La citt si ferma per il processo che si preannuncia molto avvincente Anche Theo, ovviamente, elettrizzato e, per quanto possibile, non si perde un udienza.Il processo del secolo sembra volgere ad una favorevole conclusione per l accusato, quando Theo viene contattato da un testimone, che ha visto l uxoricida sul luogo del delitto all ora del delitto Ma il giovane, cugino di un amichetto di Theo, rifiuta di testimoniare perch immigrato clandestino Ce la far Theo a convincere il ragazzo a rendere la sua importante testimonianza, che manderebbe sicuramente in prigione l omicida Questo libro si legge tutto d un fiato e ci fa conoscere via via gli eroi di questa saga April Finne, la strana amichetta di Theo Ike Boone, zio di Theo, un tempo noto avvocato, poi radiato per via di gravi eventi che Theo ignora il giudice Granty, che presiede il processo Duffy, e il cui stile fonte di ispirazione per Theo.Nella sua versione inglese, addirittura, non occorre nemmeno una conoscenza avanzata della lingua, proprio perch il libro essendo indirizzato ai ragazzi scritto in uno stile molto semplice e comprensibile.Sicuramente un ottimo libro, per quella che un ottima saga. Libro consigliato per ragazzi Inglese molto scorrevole adatto a chi, come me, non ha piena conoscenza della lingua.
