"Turow once again proves that there is more substance in a single page of one of his novels than in the entire works of John Grisham or any other author in the legal thriller genre." (Library Journal)
If I follow you, it's because I've glanced through your reviews and more than likely found books I've agreed with you on and also found at least one book that the majority loved, and you and I were less than thrilled with. I know I should follow you then for that next read that I will enjoy.
Scott Turow gives a true accurate depiction of court and lawsuit procedures, along with the story. This one kept me well enthralled. I truly enjoyed Presumed Innocent, but not "Innocent" so much. I'd give that one 3 stars. I loved "Reversible Errors", too.
If you like his other legal thrillers along this same line, this shouldn't disappoint.
What a wonderfully written book and I listen to it twice to fully understand it completely. A very good book that I would recommend.
I have read several of Turow's novels. I knew when this was 24 hours it would be long. I was hoping for interesting. This books drones on endlessly about nothingness.
If I heard one more sentence about Sonny's weird mother, I would need psychotherapy. This plot could have been told in an interesting 8 hours. I have never wanted to hit fast forward so many times in one book. There are whole chapters that could have been condensed to three sentences.
Save your money and your sanity!
