I read Presumed Innocent way back , but remember nothing about it . That didn't affect the understanding of Innocent. The major characters are interesting . Lots of discussion of relationships-marriages , father-son, mother son, boss- girlfriend. Lots of computer info.Fairly suspenseful trial .

There are three time periods covered in this book. Author or editor decided to "keep it lively" by throwing the chapters into the air and then putting the book together based upon where the chapters fell. So confusing that at the start of each chapter there is a time line showing which time period you are in PLUS a chapter title to let you know the date and whose perspective you will be in. Could have been a wonderful book, but I am left annoyed and frustrated despite multiple college degrees in Literature, Rhetoric, Education, and English. Still, I'd say it is worth giving it a shot if you are the kind of person who can watch a three-season TV series out of order and not care.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Loved his characters, their relationships in creating suspense and also, the credibility of their inner fears and desires - and how these all mesh to form a beautifully crafted plot. A must read...

I enjoyed this book, moved quickly and kept you in suspense about the outcome.

The best Scott Turow novel that I have ever read!

Don't think I read Presumed Innocent so I was a little lost. Found it boring at times but overall not too bad

I really enjoyed 'Presumed Innocent', so approached this sequel with eager anticipation. Have to say I found it a wee bit disappointing, not as good as the original in my opinion. It took me a while to get into the story, and I found the constantly moving timelines and multiple narrators a bit confusing. Nevertheless, it was an enjoyable read. I found some of the story lines relating to the affair between Rusty and Anna, and Rusty's emotional commitments (or lack thereof) to son and wife were quite thought provoking.

A great summer read, easy and predicable!

I had to slow myself down reading this book ... to savour it to the fullest. That's how good this book is. In fact I'm a little depressed now, not knowing when another one of this calibre will come by ...

Not as good as the first, but definitely worth reading if you were invested in or intrigued by Turow's characters on the first go-round.
