I guess I'm a baby...I just love to be read to.
This is nothing special but interesting enough. Sometimes I'm in the mood for a lawyer/courtroom drama so this fit that bill.
Thrilling page turner
LD I liked his character and felt he was truly innocent
He shows the characters true emotion in his voice and keeps you interested
Yes! When we found out what happened to LD and Nina's role in it
Loved the book and loved Kevin Collins narration
The entire story had so many twists and turns. As soon as you thought that you had it figured out a different door opens. It's a story about a once successful lawyer that is down and out after his wife and young daughter were by were fatally injured by a drunk driver. He meets an inexperienced attractive attorney that enlists him to represent a rap artist charged with murder. Resistant in the beginning and obsessed by the end with both the attorney and the case he struggles with with his moral and emotional compass and is challenged to keeping both in tact. The case and the characters are and both interesting while providing plenty of a entertainment... the good, the bad and the not so pretty. It's a somewhat realistic story and will keep you guessing.
The voices were very different and well suited for each character, I enjoy that.
This reads like a good John Grisham novel with out the folksy Ford County country life. It twists with surprises like Gone Girl. I found it to be an interesting mix. I will keep my eyes open for other books by this author.
I am so glad I found this book through Audible reviews as I don't ordinarily read/listen to this genre. But this book was wonderful in every sense. The plot had twists and turns that were truly unexpected. The narrator was excellent---every character had a really unique voice and his accents were perfect. He even did women's voices very well.
I won't give away anything, but be prepared to be surprised. And I do hope that the author might consider a sequel using this main character.
Oh, and lots of cool information about court cases and legal stuff, but delivered in the context of the story.
Really loved this book.
Yes, it had believable twits and turns. The judge in this court room drama was horribly unfair, but the main character kept plowing forward. Each chapter had an interesting twist.
Daniel Sorenson - the main character.
The ending - I didn't see it coming. Whaaaaat?!!
A hero you could believe in and be proud of.
Not sure, my choice for the book-club is another 4 months away.
I actually thought Kevin T. Collins did a nice job -- my 3 star rating for Kevin is really a B-.
First let me say that I listened to this book because it was selected for an Audi-Book-Club review (by me). This was my first Adam Mitzner book and more than likely will probably be my last. The premise to this story wasn’t anything unique but the initial rollout of characters was. As a reader you knew you had a hero to journey with throughout the story, you had a victim of the system who you see-saw on opening your heart and believing in him OR cursing your own stupidity for falling for the famous line “I’m innocent”. Then you had the romantic interest, a little odd but appealing; she has her own emotional scars to deal with and as always the devil in disguise someone the reader enjoys hating. One would think bundled all together this would be a – good read. Not so much…even though we got off to a slow start – , eventually it began to peek showing potential. We had few peaks and several valleys but you just knew the ending would be worth the wait.. Not so much, I won’t given anything away but the romantic storyline didn’t have enough build up, and certainly the pace of their growing relationship didn’t mesh with his ongoing “pity poor me for my losses” memories that eventually got tiresome BUT the icing on the cake was to discover at the end of the day our so-called hero, liberator, the champion for the destitute – doesn’t have any kahunas or a moral compass that any decent person would possess. Save your credits on this one.
There is a basic good plot of who donit, is he guilty or not guilty, in this legal thriller. It was a very disappointing experience, as I really really enjoyed Mitzner's previous book. Unfortunately, the suspense gets lost in the midst of all the irrelevant and tangential fillers. I was so looking forward to this book. This is only the second time with Audible that I found I actually had to skip several minutes every 2-3 chapters or so or else I would have simply given up on the book altogether. WHERE WAS THE EDITOR? That is the question. It is a waste of an otherwise great premise and a reasonably good narration.
I really did not enjoy this book and certainly would not recommend it to a friend.
Comparisons to Grisham and the likes are misleading. 'A Case of Redemption' lacks the rich layers of intrigue present in a good courtroom drama.
In my opinion, this book is a bit like a 'Law and Order' episode. Characters are stereotypical and/or over the top and character development is weak. Then there are the protagonist numerous sexual encounters with his 'gorgeous' and obviously 'much younger' assistant.......really, who cares!
I wanted to stop listening many times and often found myself fast forwarding through chapters. I continued listening however in the hope that the ending would be worth it. Well it wasn't.
This was not a page turner. I wasn't filled with suspense. I didn't even enjoy it.
