None of the characters were likable. The plot twists fell flat for the most part. The ending was weak. The courtroom parts weren't good.
The performance was OK. Not great, not terrible.
Killed time during my commute.
I think the author has potential but it was not realized in this novel.
The headline says it all. With the exception of maybe one or two
He did a great job with a poorly written book.
I stayed interested in the story and kept listening despite the fact that Mr. LeDoux sounded like he had a stuffy nose throughout his narration.
The characters were not likeable. The story was like a soap opera.
I might have to read a classic in order to purge this nonsense of a book from my memory.
No. He lacks enthusiasm. I prefer a more dynamic reader.
I would definitely cut the scenes where the main character speaks to his daughter. I would also cut out his wife manipulating him getting her pregnant and their marriage surviving.
It's absurd to believe that as a partner in a law firm that he would not be able to have an investigation re the sexual harassment. And most unlikely that he did not confront his alleged accuser.
Why ever would I do that?
A Conflict of Interest was an engaging, very good read; however the narrator, David LeDoux, was annoying and unable to modulate his voice. Better on paper, at least for me.
I like my characters and story to be believable and this story didn't always fill that bill. The performance could have been better as well. It was good enough to finish and I'd give the author another try.
I thought the story was okay, not the "edge of my seat" that I normally like but good for a first run. The Narrator David LeDoux is someone I will avoid in the future as his voice grated on my nerves!
This is by far, the most amateurish book I've ever read (heard). To be fair, if you like to have every little thing about every person, place and thing described to you in every possible detail imaginable, you may get along with this book just fine. . For me, after 12 chapters, the real story plot (if this book actually has one) still remains to be seen. It was as if describing completely mundane things page after page is how to write a book.
His obvious (at least to me) newness to writing good fiction.
Just get to the point. Or at least stop boring the reader so badly while you get there.
I couldn't escape the feeling that the writer was very young and quite inexperienced in writing books.
The scenes describing investment fraud
Mr. Mitzner is a good writer. His plot, however, is too predictable. His courtroom scenes are unrealistic. He has a long ways to go before he can be compared to Michael Connelly, John Grisham and Scott Turow, who can keep you on the edge of your seat and know what goes on in courtrooms.
Dvcid LeDoux, on the other hand, did a nice job in trying to bring this lackluster account to life.
