Audible for President
By far and away the best listen I have had so far!!! It had me hooked from the first paragraph to the last. From start to finish I listened to it in less than a day and a half. I also like to listen to multiple books at a time but the second i started this listen I did not stop until it was finished!
I loved Conflict of Interest by Adam Mitner & this book was just as good! Absolutely loved it! A couple of twists in the end that I didn't see coming - I even had to re-listen to one part because I was so surprised about the twist, I had to make sure I heard every word of it! If you liked Conflict of Interest, definitely get this one too - you won't be disappointed!
I am rarely seen without my headphones on and my iPod clipped on my waist. I love my books.
This book definitely kept me interested in the plot. There is an unexpected twist at the end. I am always afraid that when I write a review, that I will give away too much about the story. I never want to spoil the fun of listening to books. That being said, this book was worth the credit and I will listen to Adam Mitzner's next book.
I get so excited sometimes about writing a review..good or bad...that why sometimes I misspell words..lol..
This is an absolutely fabulous book! The story line, narrator..All I have to say is get it!
I don't write many reviews, but this is a MUST READ/LISTEN! Adam is an amazingly gifted writer. He hooks you in minutes. His other book was excellent as well.
The story gripped me from the start and held me till the end. Certainly did not expect the ending. Looking forward to another story featuring this detective.
I listened to Adam Mitzner's first book and loved it. I was so glad to see another book by this author.
A lawyer, Dan, is taking time off after a family tragedy. He's almost hit bottom but he meets a female attorney, Nina, through friends. She convinces him to come back to law and represent a rapper accused of brutally murdering his girlfriend, who was considered a "pop princess."
Nothing is what it seems, even at the end. The attorneys are trying to solve the murder - was it their client or someone else? But they keep finding another lie their client has told them which led them in the wrong direction. The story is not predictable and could definitely be considered "ripped from the headlines" as others have said. This will keep you guessing.
I'm looking forward to Mr. Mitzner's next book.
I am a semi retired cs engineer who loves history and quality novels.....i am usually reading one hard cover and two audibles at once.
narrators should stop trying to be actors and changing their voice to be different people, I have returned several books because of this. They should simply read the book as you would be reading it in your mind......without these nonsensical attempts to sound female, British, happy, sad, etc..etc. The story might not be too bad, and I actually tried to push on with it, but at a certain point could not take even another word from him !
all of your narrators should be told not to try to act out a book, and stop with these irritating attempts at acting and just read the book....period !
It depends; if they are like me and occasionally like a light, easy read...then yes.
Haven't listened to anything else by Mitzner.
The narrator was fine - I'm not sure there was much more he could have done with this text.
Hard to believe the central premise of this, which was that anyone would consider the case open-and-shut. The prosecution had no murder weapon, no physical evidence putting the suspect at the scene, and no clear motive. The only "evidence" against the suspect was a song which could, if you listened very selectively, sound like a threat to commit a crime (and not even the precise crime that was committed).
I would expect any defense lawyer worth his salt to knock that out of the park, but everyone acted like the suspect was completely doomed from the start. The main character is sympathetic, but does start to seem rather dense once you figure out what's really going on and he takes several more chapters to catch up.
There are a lot of legal thrillers out there. Many of them are good, gripping reads. Case of Redemption is not one of them. There is not a single intriguing character; the main character, Dan Sorenson, is so devoid of personality that the author is reduced to ascribing a personal tragedy to him in order to try to wring sympathy for him on the part of the reader. His professional partner, Nina, is equally blank and uninteresting; we find out more about the cut of her suits than what goes on inside her head. The lesser characters constitute a parade of annoying stereotypes that each seem to scream out, "I'm sorry for being so unoriginal, but the person who created me has no imagination."
The dialogue is banal in the extreme. Adam Mitzner seems quite taken with his creation in the form of Judge Perlmeyer (who's narrated with a Southern accent--why? this is New York), and gives her way too much real estate in the book to harangue Dan over his behavior in court. This, too, is an artificial way to generate sympathy for the thoroughly unremarkable main character, and does nothing to advance the plot.
The portrayal of the relationship between Dan and Nina is shockingly inept and cheesy. And as for the story itself -- there is not a single element of suspense or surprise, and the whole thing smacks of implausibility. Just two examples: this is a high-profile case involving a celebrity, there is no murder weapon, and the judge gives the defense only two weeks to prepare for trial? During their meetings with the defendant, L.D., in jail, our two legal eagles, Dan & Nina, never get round to asking him about his alibi on the night of the murder. I'm no lawyer, but isn't that pretty fundamental to a murder case? Yeah, I know, this is fiction, but to my mind, a story loses luster if it becomes too unmoored from reality and it's impossible to relate to anyone or anything in the book.
