Con Law: John Bookman, book 1 | [Mark Gimenez]

Con Law: John Bookman, book 1

John Bookman - Book to his friends - is a tenured professor at the University of Texas School of Law. He's 35, handsome, and unmarried. He teaches Constitutional Law, reduces senators to blithering fools on talk shows, and is often mentioned as a future Supreme Court nominee. But Book is also famous for something more unusual. He likes to take on lost causes and win. Consequently, when he arrives at the law school each Monday morning, hundreds of letters await him, letters from desperate Americans around the country seeking his help. Every now and then, one letter captures his attention and Book feels compelled to act.

    Story
    "Seriously good listen"
    If you could sum up Con Law in three words, what would they be?

    This is a great story, complex and interesting, read by THE BEST narrator, Jeff Harding.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    My attention did not wander for a second.


    What does Jeff Harding bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is the best narrator and can make dreary stories sound interesting and interesting stories compelling.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Constitutional Law meets Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

    Story
    "Slow to get going and not that great when it does!"

    I had high hopes for this book as it had got good reviews from other people. However, the overly long introduction to the story which focussed significantly on points of American constitutional law became drawn out and rather boring to me - and I am a lawyer, but a British one, not American.. I normally find the legal aspects of novels by John Grisham interesting, but this just didn't grip me. Then, when the story got going, I found the character of the female intern quite whiny, rather than entertaining as described by other reviewers. I haven't finished the book yet, so am will keep going and hope that it gets better.... but I'm beginning to doubt it.

    "It all comes together"

    With Con Law you get the best of everything. Mark Gimenez is a great storyteller with just enough detail and characters you understand and identify with. The knowledge this is book 1 of a series is exciting to say the least. Add to this someone who is in our opinion the greatest narrator on Audible - Jeff Harding - and there is a package not to be missed and to be savoured and enjoyed. We thoroughly recommend all Mark's books so far and also recommend any book narrated by Jeff.

    "Excellent listen"
    Would you listen to Con Law again? Why?

    No - I never listen to any book twice.


    What other book might you compare Con Law to, and why?

    He is a bit of a Jack Reacher - particularly as Jeff Harding also narrates Reacher.


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Harding’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Have listened to Jeff Harding narrate Jack Reacher novels. This was the same style and suited the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Immediately looked for Book 2- was disappointed that it is not yet available.
