Review

"Scott Turow's new novel is the dedicated fiction-reader's version of El Dorado: a driving, unputdownable courtroom drama/murder mystery that is also a literary treasure, written in language that sparkles with clarity and resonates with honest character insight. I came away feeling amazed and fulfilled, as we only do when we read novelists at the height of their powers. Put this one on your don't-miss list."
-Stephen King

"Mesmerizing prose and intricate plotting lift Turow's superlative legal thriller, his best novel since his bestselling debut, Presumed Innocent to which this is a sequel...Once again, Turow displays an uncanny ability for making the passions and contradictions of his main characters accessible and understandable.—Publisher's Weekly

3.0 out of 5 stars It's just sort of "there"... May 31 2010
By Jill Meyer HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Scott Turow's new novel, "Innocent" is a sequel of sorts of his book, "Presumed Innocent", published twenty or so years ago. Same cast of characters from the first book, Judge Rusty Sabich, lawyer Sandy Stern, PA Tommy Molto, Sabich's wife Barbara, and son Nat. Also continued from the previous book was the old question of did Rusty Sabich murder his then-mistress, Carolyn Polhemus?

In "Innocent", Sabich is now accused by Molto, of murdering his wife, Barbara. The book is full of red-herrings and computer-mischief, of affairs-gone-wrong, and mid-life crises, in all varieties. Turow also uses different "voices" throughout the book, some written in the first-person, others in the third-person. "Innocent" isn't a bad book - its just one that I'm not sure needed to be written. It neither answered the questions raised in "Presumed Innocent", nor did it relate an especially compelling story-line on its own. The story is just "there" - just sort of sits on the page, page after page. I can't really recommend reading it, nor can I dissuade anybody from reading it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Expectations too high July 8 2010
Format:Hardcover
Remembering how much I enjoyed Presumed Innocent, I was greatly looking forward to reading another Turow novel. The format was interesting, as different chapters are written from the standpoint of various characters. Therein, however, lay part of the problem. I did not find all the "voices" to be convincing, particularly those of Rusty's son and Rusty's girlfriend, both of whom are decades younger than most of the others. There were less twists and turns than Presumed Innocent, so that while Innocent was ultimately satisfying, it does not meet the high standards of the former.

4.0 out of 5 stars Double Jeopardy June 1 2010
By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
"You have heard that it was said to those of old, 'You shall not murder, and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.' But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, 'Raca!' shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, 'You fool!' shall be in danger of hell fire." -- Matthew 5:21-22 (NKJV)

In Presumed Innocent, prosecutor Rusty Sabich had a close courtroom call with being found guilty of murder after his colleague and lover was found dead. Only some courtroom fireworks saved him. It's now over 20 years later, and Rusty is an appellate court judge getting ready to move up. The only trouble is . . . Rusty's wife has died and circumstantial evidence convinces his old adversary, Tommy Molto, that Rusty killed her. What will happen this time?

If you haven't read Presumed Innocent, I suspect you won't like Innocent as much as I did. Either read Presumed Innocent first (a better book) or skip the idea of reading Innocent.

The strength of the book comes in character development involving four major characters as narrators, allowing a rich context for understanding conflicts, choices, and emotional involvements. Naturally, two of the narrators are Rusty and Tommy, but I'll leave it to you to find out who the other two are. It would tip off too much of the story to tell you now.

Like most stories where there's a lot of character development, you'll either delight in that or feel like you are watching grass grow . . . depending on your taste in courtroom suspense stories.

The plot will leave many feeling unsatisfied, and I am one of them. But I enjoyed the characters enough to pull the book up above average.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Courtroom Drama July 21 2010
By Novel Girl TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
This book lived up to the hype, and to the reviews on the books jacket.
It is very well written, with many good twists, and every time I put the book down and then continued; instantly I was right back in it.
Since the style of this book is written in past and present; the author gives a timeline heading at the beginning of each chapter so there is no guesswork needed, and the chapters are very well spaced.
A very good read.
