    Easy to put down

    Mixed book club review - Most didn't finish it. Love the author but other books of his are better. Accurately shows how people respond to stress and choices. Almost too much description.

    'I Tried to Write a Great Book About Bad Attorneys'

    It is amazing how disappointing this book is. Turow uses every cliche and soap-opera scene ever said and done. Sadly, the events are beliveable, but the characters elicit no empathy or sympathy. After a few chapters they become booooring. Maybe the movie will be better.

    formulaic

    After having read all of Turow's books, particularly his last triumph 'Laws of our Fathers', I was extremely disappointed that this book was a simple formulaic plot, without anything to make it stand out. Turow has obviously settled into complacency and, I do admit, I read mediocre reviews of this novel prior to purusing it, but the critics were correct. Read Scott's previous tomes...He apparently has not motivation to excel anymore.

    Unrealized Potential

    Before reading 'Personal Injuries,' I always thought of Turow as the most cerebral of America's lawyer-writers. If cerebral means that a book is hard to follow and puts the reader to sleep, then my earlier assessment still holds true. Although portions of 'Injuries' are very good (such as Turow's character development of Feavor), the gaps between the good parts minimize the story's effectiveness. It seems as if Turow threw 'Injuries' together without giving the manuscript the critical analysis works such as 'Presumed Innocent' and 'Laws of Our Fathers' enjoyed. Bottom line: I can't wait 'til 'The Brethren' is released next week.

    Scott Turow bombs...

    I was very disappointed in this book. Very hard to read. Detailed;would be a good book for a law student or lawyer. Not alot of action. I struggle to read 5 pages a day.Not his usual great novel.
