Publisher's Summary

Identical, based loosely on the myth of Castor and Pollux, is the story of identical twins, Paul and Cass Giannis, and the complex relationships between their family and their former neighbors, the Kronons. The audiobook focuses principally on events in 2008, when Paul is a candidate for Mayor of Kindle County, and Cass is released from the penitentiary, 25 years after pleading guilty to the murder of his girlfriend, Athena Kronon. The plot centers on the re-investigation of Athena's murder, carried out together by Evon Miller, an ex-FBI agent who is the head of security for the Kronon family business, and private investigator Tim Brodie, 81, a former homicide detective. The complex web of murder, sex, and betrayal - as only Scott Turow could weave - dramatically unfolds, and the chilling truth is revealed: People will believe what they want to believe.

Just not up to standards

Would you try another book from Scott Turow and/or Henry Leyva?

Maybe.

Any additional comments?

I have listened to all of Turow's other books. While a number of them are a bit slow, this one unbearably slow. Very predictable and he goes completely off on a tangent to try to build characters. You could skip significant portions of the book and not really miss anything because he doesn't stay on course with the story. I stopped just over half way through and only after forcing myself to listen for at least an additional hour.

Identical is average.. at best

What would have made Identical better?

The whole story lacked imagination. The Characters were cartoonish and lacked depth.

What was most disappointing about Scott Turow’s story?

Scott seemed to go out of his way to express his political leanings.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I thought the performance was okay provided the material.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really...

Silly story

What would have made Identical better?

The story was just not up to par, compared to his other books.

Monotone and boring

Hard to Follow

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I am very easy to please, but this story was really hard to follow. The entire experience was negative so much so that I couldn't even finish it, which is something that I never do! I like Scott Turow. Perhaps this is just one story that doesn't translate well into Audio format? Who knows?
