    "Guilty!"

    This sequel is disappointing on every level; plot, description, length, and characters. The story and characters are shallow and self-absorbed. I greatly regret the wasted time. The story doesn't get better as it continues hour after boring hour. If you have to listen to this story, get the abridged version. Is there a one-hour version? I've often enjoyed the narrator in other works, however, a story as poor as this makes him look bad.

    "The Perfect Sequel"

    I really enjoyed reading "Presumed Innocent" two decades ago and remembering both after the book and the moview....how could these people carry on? Turow shows us not only the characters' current existence but how they got there. Turow takes no short cuts as he shows the full emotions of each major character and more often than not (as was the strongest theme in the first book) things are not as they appear.

    Narration was excellent - great summer listen.

    "Superb"

    Beautifully conceived and written, and I can't imagine better narration. I'm now close to the final chapter, not wanting it to end.

    "good read"

    this is a particularly entertaining crime novel if you read or watched Presumed Innocent. It's interesting to meet the characters 20 years later. I didn't love the male narrator--at times his narration interfered with my enjoyment, but overall a credit worthy selection.

    "Turow at his best!"

    It has been years since my last Turow read. It didn't take long to remember and appreciate the excellence of this writer and this novel. The character development is so tight and detailed, you find yourself inside the head of the characters. That intimate perspective does not give away the non-stop mystery and suspense as the tale unfolds. I found myself frustrated and thrilled that I could not guess the entire plot and ending. Be prepared to change your priorities once you begin this read. You won't want to stop.

    "Twist and turns"

    I love being kept on the edge of my seat while listening to a good book, and this really fits the bill. Great narration, story line that keeps you wanting more. Way to write!

    "INNOCENT"

    Turow does it again. Lots of twists and I guessed wrong. That is what Scott is great at doing.

    "This one's a winner!"

    Wonderful yet tragic story of the Savich family 20 years after Rusty's difficult acquital of the murder of Carolyn Polhemus. This novel strikes me as very cerebral; we get the chapters from various viewpoints and the teller's thoughts as the chapters unfold. I do think, though, that Mr Turow could do a better job in developing Rusty's character and helping us understand what drives him. As one example, we know he's one who doesn't show feelings and generally plays the cards he's dealt. Is there something in his background or childhood that we should know to help us understand him as he is today? Conversely, I thought he did an admirable job painting Rusty's son's character. This novel was lengthy but it left me wanting more. I'd highly recommend this work!
