I am going to see what my attorney son thinks of this... but it was hard to stop listening since the plot has many unexpected twists and turns. Recently I have been able to predict the ending of most novels but in this case, my thoughts kept changing. Well worth the read or listen.
So many story lines intertwined into one whole. The characters of course, the legal information though I am waiting for my attorney son to read it. At times the story seemed a little far fetched but then again, that is what good novels are about. I could't
stop listening to it.
Too many to count. Perhaps the ending was the most memorable. It brought it all together.
Didn't , obviously, read the book but he certainly did a good job creating the voices of many varied characters.
not sure but I think a film would be great. In fact, I thought of that often during my listening.
Ask me later
not really. Best Grisham that I have read and I believe that I have read or listened to most of them
This book was thoroughly enjoyable, and I learned a great deal about the army and about vietnam and the army legal process. It is quite long and I ended up staying up several nights because I could not stop listening.
I thought I had listened to most of DeMille's novels but not this one. I am Vietnam age but seemed to miss much of it because of being in medical school.
I seldom write about my listener experience... however, this novel is pretty bad... not well written and more of a "chick" flick despite the faat that I am an elderly "chick"
The basic story is interesting but the wording is repetative and there are inaccuracies in a lot of the medical information (current treatment of migraines as an example) I accidentally listened to the second part 1st and it could have stood by itself. Much of the 1st part was unnecessary. I think it could be condensed to a much more fast paced novel. The same trees and plants are described over and over again.
I have read all of Turow's novels. My son just graduated from law school and so I thorougly enjoyed the account of Scott's year as a first year law student at Harvard. I went to Harvard medical school.
This book though is far more complex with ideas and characters and plot than any of the previous Turow novels. It goes through WW2 including the concentration camps. I kept thinking of Hemingway since there is that sort of wartime sexuality and thinking about maleness and heros that were very much a part of Hemingway's war novels.
this is unusual since I haven't though about the Hemingway novels for quite a few years. I suspect that Scott Turow might have thought of them too in the writing.
The audio edition is well read with accents that seem true, but I am not a good judge of this. I'll be interested in seeing what others write since the novel is newly out.
I enjoyed this more than I have any recent novel that I have read/oopd, listened to... and it has left me thinking about human nature and war as well as reconfirming love.
