    "Beautifully constructed."

    Not out of date. This story still stands as a brilliantly developed court room story.

    "Entertaining Masterful Storytelling"

    I truly enjoyed this legal mystery. Engaging from the beginning with splendid character development that allowed me to care about the participants. Herrmann's narration was inspired and will tempt me to invest in another of his works. Highly recommended book well worth the time and credit.

    Story
    "For Listening In The Dark"

    Even though the bookl is 30 years old it is Not dated The story is told in the delicious manner of the first person that Ifind so appealing. Scott Turow truely knows how turn a phrase to make the story flow smoothly. The narrator has just the right tone of voice to grab that flow and you for just the right ride on the rapids or the smoothness of the deeps. Totally enjoyed it and I am currently enjoying the sequel and I am only 2 hours into it

    "Slow-going"

    I found this book to be very "draggy". The main character's continuous lamentations were really boring.

    "Horribly Slow"

    This is probably one of the worst books I have listened too. Their is no buildup, there is no cohesion, and to make matters worse, the Narrator is horrible. I tried to listen but was unable to stay awake during drive times.

    "X-Rated, Good Characters, Poetic Prose"

    Normally a book like this is one I quickly recommend to friends and family. But the very graphic scenes make me hesitant to do that. If that doesn't bother you, then you should enjoy this one. I can't imagine another narrator doing a better job with this book... a perfect fit for the author's toughtful, almost poetic writing. The first person perspective added a nice touch, since few are done that way these days. While I suspected who dunnit very early in the book, it still kept me interested and not quite sure until the end.

    "Not like the movie"

    I'm not finished this book yet. I have to keep turning it off - there's too much cursing. The story takes a while to get off the ground, but now - about 4 hours into it - it seems to be picking up. But if I had known there was so much cursing, I would not have bought this book.

    "Guilty"

    This book suggests that everyone is guilty of something they should never have done. Presumed Innocent was depressing beyond words and I am guilty of listening.

    "disappointed"
    Would you try another book from Scott Turow and/or Edward Herrmann?

    NO


    Has Presumed Innocent turned you off from other books in this genre?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    I'm glad I purchased this book during the $4.95 promotion even thought it's not worth that I've been determined to finish this book I'm half way through and it's a little better.
