    1. The events in this novel are narrated by Defense Attorney George Mason who tells us from the start that this is a "lawyer's story, the kind attorneys like to hear and tell. About a case. About a client." So we should already know that this isn't going to be the run-of-the-mill courtroom drama.The case at first appears to be about tax evasion. The IRS Criminal Intelligence unit has found a non-interest bearing checking account that has millions in it and large sums of money withdrawn from it. No [...]

    2. Robbie is a lawyer who got caught passing bribes to judges. They make a deal with him to wear a wire so they can convict the judges. Things get more and more dangerous-- but the story is more about Robbie's philosophy of life and his impact on those around him his own lawyer and the beautiful F.B.I. agent posing as his new legal secretary and his wife, who is suffering from Lou Gehrig's disease. This is a tough book to read. Robbie's philosophy is to love those around him, though he does it thro [...]

    3. With a review of a 1999 copyrighted book I've obviously come across it in a second-hand shop. As a writer, I know this does the author out of a royalty (and regret that) but it's the best I can afford. And second-hand sales at least get an author additional readers. It's also a fact that I find myself more comfortable with traditional fiction writing from last century than some of its more modern forms.One way to judge a book is by how well it measures up to its cover blurbs.I agree with the "Gu [...]

    4. I know Robbie Feaver.Maybe you do, too — if you’re lucky.In my opinion, Robbie is among the most brilliantly — and lovingly — created characters in fiction. Robbie is a lawyer, a nice Jewish boy, handsome, sexy, funny, and a complex human being.“You could never count on him for honesty, assuming he even knew what it was. He was unruly and incorrigible. But if she stumbled, he’d come running. She couldn’t even say for sure she’d be able to reach out when he extended a hand. But he [...]

    5. Never read a book by this guy, and don't really read legal thrillers at all. Still, I think Turow has a real knack for character building and even the side characters are all fleshed out enough to be interesting. The plot itself is a little much, but I stuck around just to see the interactions between the players. I listened to the audiobook which was brilliantly narrated and overall I found it quite enjoyable.

    6. Personal Injuries takes readers once again to Kindle County, USA (somewhere in flyover country) and, in my view, back to the standard of Presumed Innocent. Within the first 1,000 words the Feds + IRS have turned a rich, successful, charming, womanizing personal injury lawyer, whom they wire up and employ to entrap a cohort of judges and various minions of the court, all similarly on the take. As the investigation lumbers forward over six months, through a thicket of legal, logistical, and electr [...]

    7. I did not like this book. From little thinks like Turow's insistence on shifting from referring to characters by first name then last name, even in the same paragraph. Really? Why?? Purely annoying to the reader having to keep track of what's going on in two character name-spaces. It would have been one thing if certain characters referred to each other by last name for effect, but that wasn't the case. This book is in the third person - I suspect I was supposed to care about the main character [...]

    8. I had hopes that this book would be better than the one I just read – I was still charged from the plot turn and rather hopeful to read a true page turner. Nope – didn't happen. This book did not hold my interest. It was overly descriptive, slow and drawn out. It was actually painful to read. I continued through the book hoping as Pleading Guilty, it would suddenly be good – it never happened. I would not recommend this book.

    9. I hadn't read a Scott Turow book since probably the late 80s. I think my reading taste has advanced since those days. This book had complex legal machinations and intricately woven character parts, but was hard for me to follow - hard to remember all the characters' names. I just wasn't that impressed. Interesting story, but too long and too much intricate info for me.

    10. Seeking mysteries I happened upon this work and having read Presumed Innocent long ago, and 4-5 years ago I had read a well written non-fiction documentary by Turow of a noted miscarriage of justice. So I decided to give it a try. The story starts off with what portends to be an intersting plot. But then for the technically picky reader like me (scientist) it becomes contrived nonsense. For example, the author asks us to believe the anti-hero, a crooked personal injury attorney, has been practic [...]

    11. I liked this book. As hard as it was to get into at first with all the legal jargon and long paragraphs, this book really is a story about a confused, lost, idealist human being. While Robbie made mistakes and lied constantly, he was a deep character that Turow wrote incredibly well. The plot wasn't the most exciting, but I think the story was more about building the characters. (It was strange that we knew less about the narrator than any of the other people.) The depiction of Rainey and ALS wa [...]

    12. Personal Injuries, by Scott turow, a-minus, Narrated by Mark Bramhall, Produced by Hachette Audio, downloaded from audible.Robbie Feaver is a well-known personal injury lawyer who almost always wins his cases. He is partnered with a lawyer he has known all his life, and the two work well together. But the Federal Distyrict Attorney and the FBI find out that he had fraudulently withheld money from the IRS. It’s quite a bit of money, so the prosecutor gets Robbie to agree to wear a wire and info [...]

    13. I enjoyed this book, it was a pretty good read. Overall it was a good story but, there were times I almost got bored with things that really didn't play that much into the story line. I did like toward the end when things started to come together, good twists and turns and an ending I didn't see coming which I think maybe I should have. Hind sight is 20/20 right, like the 6th Sense, you go back and watch it a 2nd time and you're like "Ah, Bruce Willis WAS dead the whole time!" Sorry if I spoiled [...]

    14. Wow! What a great read. Scott Turow's writing is ourstanding: storyline, dialogue and character development are all first-rate. I didn't see the ending coming the way it came. Made perfect sense but still a real suprise. This story also resonated with me on a personal level. The description of one of the character's struggle with ALS, with it's slow and hideous progression, was painfully accurate. Having watched ALS slowly take my father's life in 1999 (but not his dignity) I can attest to both [...]

    15. This was a remarkable book from an author and a genre I don't usually read about. I was quite shocked that I liked this. The story was well thought of, well paced and well written. The characters are memorable and they became a part of you. It's a law story that has heart and I think that what was good about it. I think this book is underrated so I recommend everybody to grab a copy and read it! Watch out for the twist at the end!

    16. I was delighted by the "density" of the descriptions of both the outer and inner worlds of the places and people in the book.

    17. My average rating is in the low 3's, an overall rating that very much resembles a bell curve. When I first started reading this novel, it was in bed before nodding off for the night. After a 100 pages or so, I knew that this story needed to be consumed when I was fully alert, ie. during daylight hours. That is when the story became alive for me. This is a story about good gone bad, a story about a person's life, in this case a lawyer, with his practice, with his mother, with his wife, and with h [...]

    18. Yeah well I kind of wish I'd stopped reading it at page 50 and thrown it into the Adriatic sea. Scott Turow is capable of much better things. His "hero" is a guy with a moral compass that barely registers; who I didn't like and I'm actually kind of glad he ended up where he ended up (won't spoil it for you); the plot was confusing but most annoying was how the story changed from being told in a first party narrative to a third party narrative sometimes within the same freaking paragraph. If yo [...]

    19. While the story was fine, what really made this audio book sing was the narration by the late Ken Howard. To me, a few audiobook narrations stand out. Jim Dale's of the Harry Potter books. Bernadette Dunne's in The Secret Agent. Almost anything by George Guidall. Howard narrated the story so artfully, that later I sought out a book he had written, Act Natural, to learn whether he shared anything usefule on using your voice.

    20. The main appeal of this book is the question "who really is the good guy here?" The FBI uses a local personal injury attorney to bring down corrupt judges, yet they are far from blameless in motive and tactics. George Mason, a noted character in other Turow novels, tells this one is a first person narrative as almost a report of an experience for government consumption. While somewhat light on action, the intrigue moment to moment makes this one worth reading more than once.

    21. I have read this on and off for a couple of months, in between more compelling books. Certainly not my favorite Scott Turow, far to long and detailed about legal corruption with the added sadness of ALS as a back story. Intrigue and corruption abound.

    22. This was a great book, love the plot. It was one of the best novels I read in awhile. I would definitely be reading more of his books.

    23. Stock characters, cliches, dialogue recycled from Mickey Spillane (if you can even figure who's talking). Life is too short to waste on junk.

    24. It took me about 1/3 of the book to get committed to finish it. The last 1/3 I couldn't put down - by then I was very involved in the characters and their lives.
