A week later she was working as an unpaid intern in a legal aid clinic deep in small-town Appalachia. There, for the first time in her career, she was confronted with real clients with real problems. She also stumbled across secrets that should have remained buried deep in the mountains forever.

I feel exactly the opposite of 'mackfrannie'; one of my faves and immensely interesting politically as well as from a historical and legal standpoint. Highly recommended! (Though to be fair, it's pretty sad)

Boring and a book that was the worst Grisham book I have read. I love all of the books I have read which are most of them. I did finish the book but what a waste of time.

This looks like it might become a series, particularly the way it ends. I thought it took a while for the story line to develop, the book got better the deeper you read into it. Narrator was outstanding.

I was disappointed in the story line. The premise began intriguingly enough but by half way through the book I realized I did not like or care much about the protagonist. The information about the coal industry was grist for the mill but it was not developed in the way I anticipated.

I had been looking forward to another Grisham thriller, instead it was, as previously stated, long and boring. He ranted on and on about the evils of coal companies. It was a political statement in the guise of a novel.

This novel is just a long and boring list of lawsuits with a weak , dispassionate, uninteresting main character as stated in another comment. Action was weak with too much PC.

This story is worth hearing; it flows, engages and certainly taught me a lot about the devastation of coal mining. I liked how it brings out the complexity of being poor in a rural region and how hard it can be for people to survive.

I disagree with the previous 2 reviews. It is a very typical Grisham story, although certainly not one of his best. It was however engaging and the story flowed nicely. I am not typically a fan of female narrators, but felt this was well done. We listened to it on most of a 21 hour drive, and it didn't disappoint.

Gray Mountain was terrific. Great story, good characters and tightly written. 9 of 10 for me.

I agree with the previous review 100%. Yawn! Could this have been a ghost writer for John Grisham? Just didn’t even feel like his writing to me. I couldn't even finish the book.
