A whole lot of nothing...

by carriej on Apr 23, 2009

Everything that happens in this book, happens in the first 60 or so pages. The entire middle section is courtroom, legal mumbo-jumbo, action-less stuff. The ending has an interesting twist... but not worth reading the entire middle section just to get to it. I wound up skimming the last half of the boring stuff just to get to the end without missing anything important. I never, ever skim books... but I skimmed this one. If you want to read Chris Bohjalian, read Double Bind. That's a good one.
