あらすじ・解説

All trails became dead ends. Tips that had at first seemed urgent now faded away. The waiting game began. Whoever had the manuscripts would want money, and a lot of it. They would surface eventually, but where and when, and how much would they want?

The most daring and devastating heist in literary history targets a high security vault located deep beneath Princeton University. Valued at $25 million (though some would say priceless), the five manuscripts of F. Scott Fitzgerald's only novels are amongst the most valuable in the world. After an initial flurry of arrests, both they and the ruthless gang of thieves who took them have vanished without trace. Dealing in stolen books is a dark business, and few are initiated to its arts - which puts Bruce Kable right on the FBI's Rare Asset Recovery Unit's watch list.

A struggling writer burdened by debts, Mercer Mann spent summers on Florida's idyllic Camino Island as a kid, in her grandmother's beach cottage. Now she is being made an offer she can't refuse: to return to the peace of the island, to write her novel - and get close to a certain infamous bookseller, and his interesting collection of manuscripts....

最高に面白かった!

Painted house 同様にじーんと来る小説です。本好きの人にはたまらない、感動与える小説です。January LaVoyさんの朗読、いろいろな人のを聴きましたが、ベストです。英語リスニング強化には最高のナレーターです。小説を更に面白くさせてくれ、小説が映画を見ている感じになります。GrishamさんとLaVoyさんにかんしゃです。Camino Wind をLaBoyさんの朗読で聴きたかったです。このオーディブルには関係ありませんが、村上春樹翻訳のグレート ギャツビーを追えのタイトルは本を売りたいがためのネーミングでおかしいと思いました。絶対Camino Island カミーノ アイランドで翻訳は出すべきと思いました。

Slow and disappointing

I bought this book based on previous Grisham books I’ve read.
This book is really slow and goes into unnecessary detail which has nothing to do with the story. For example the main character going for a swim at the beach hoping the good looking jogger she’s seen goes past, but he doesn’t that day. It went into great depth, took ages and had nothing to do with previous or earlier storyline!!

Boring book badly narrated

The subject matter of this book is badly chosen and the writing is poor, which is disappointing from a veteran writer such as Grisham. Long conversations between characters that go nowhere and add nothing to the plot, and no sense of tension. The narrator is awful, very hard to listen to and resorts to "comedy" accents. Avoid.

An Island Story Adrift From its Plot

I've always liked a good John Grisham; when he's on form with his legal thrillers he's the master of his domain. My impression is that when he strays off his home turf and tries to play away the results are a little more mixed. Camino Island has done nothing to change my mind.

There's the positive in that I found the characters engaging with the decadent literary clique he creates on the island genuinely enjoyable. The story is interesting and the idea is good but the whole thing never took off for me or got the pulse racing. The heist is by modern thrillers fairly standard Ocean's Eleven fayre without the killer cleverness. The plotting isn't of the highest standard. For example one of the highly professional and experienced thieves who had a criminal record chooses to ignore something he really would have known meant serious trouble.

The narration by January Lavoy is of her normal high standard. She reads very clearly and at a brisk pace while managing a wide range of character voices. There is one female character on the island that is written as a soft touch to be fair but who ends up coming out as a wet enough blanket to dowse any small house fire!

Throughout though there was no great feeling of ongoing jeopardy and the main subject seemed often distant or in the background. This meant that while this is fairly enjoyable reading it never builds up any great head of steam or excitement. In all a pleasant rather than exciting or spectacular read that won't stay long in the mind or make it into most people's Grisham top ten list.

Disappointing

Any additional comments?
I have 26 Grisham books in my audible library - I thoroughly enjoyed 25 of them but this was a major letdown for me and far below his norm. The story dragged on and the performance was average at best - suffice to say if this was the first of his books I listened to it would have also been the last.

Flat ending

Well it started well, promising I thought, but slumped. Then it picked up again, again it disappointed at the end.
I thought so much more would happen with such a good story line, I almost want to rewrite the book myself.
I've enjoyed the previous books by this author and I have another one I've purchased on Audible. I hope it's better than this one. Watch this space. Jess In Wiltshire

Boring!

A really slow story,with uninspiring and unattractive characters. We gave up after several hours listening, since nothing of any interest ever seems to happen!
Try one of his other books...

"Excellent beginning deplorable ending. "


A great start that basically goes nowhere, very frustrating it had a plot that was full of possibility characters that had a great beginning and all just went flat and pointless.

Not worth the money or the time for a proper review

Great novel. Very enjoyable

l enjoy John Grisham's work immensely and this has book has been a refreshing contrast to other novels.
The narration was a delight to listen to with expression and flow in equal measure.

Had the opportunity to be a fantastically gripping conclusion but it just drifted and ended...

Camino Island review

Narration was good. The story was disappointing as was the plot. As a John Grisham fan I have to say this was the worst Grisham novel I have read.

Disappointing

This is the most disappointing John Grisham I have ever read.
Starts off with some promise in the first few chapters and goes rapidly down hill from there.

Not happy with narrator

I’m a big John Grisham fan generally, but found it difficult to enjoy this audiobook due to the narration.

The narrator’s attempts at character voices I found to be very distracting and often annoying.

Whilst I plan to listen to the few remaining Grisham books I haven’t yet read, I will do my best to avoid this narrator in the future.

Disappointed!

The ending made me annoyed that I’d wasted my time listening to this novel. Thought John Grisham was better than this. I should have taken notice of the other poor reviews !

Not very interesting or exciting

A very ho-hum Grisham - passed a few iso hours but there is no excitement, the denoument is wishy-washy and the characterisation is poor. Basically a few thousand words which meander along aimlessly after Chapter One which had some promise. Adequate narration. Glad it was a daily specialy and I didn't pay full price.
