Innocent: Book Review & Giveaway!
The sequel to the genre-defining, landmark bestseller Presumed Innocent, INNOCENT continues the story of Rusty Sabich and Tommy Molto who are, once again, twenty years later, pitted against each other in a riveting psychological match after the mysterious death of Rusty's wife.
About The Author:
Scott Turow is a writer and attorney. He is the author of seven best-selling novels: Presumed Innocent (1987), The Burden of Proof (1990), Pleading Guilty (1993), The Laws of Our Fathers (1996), Personal Injuries (1999), Reversible Errors (2002) and Ordinary Heroes (2005). A novella, Limitations, was published as a paperback original in November 2006 by Picador following its serialization in The New York Times Magazine. His works of non-fiction include One L (1977) about his experience as a law student, and Ultimate Punishment (2003), a reflection on the death penalty.
Recently I had the opportunity to read Presumed Innocent by Scott Turow. You can see my review here. So you can imagine my excitement when I had the opportunity to read the highly anticpated, and 25 years in the making, sequel, Innocent. I jumped at the opportunity and was not disappointed!
The thing that I loved best about this book is that you really get to know the characters in a much deeper manner than in the first book. Actually, throughout the first half there is much flip-flopping between past and present, and you get perspectives from all the major characters! This was done in a way that was not confusing at all and really helped to set up the present book! I applaud Turow's writting style and the way he kept me hooked on the plot lines! There are tons of twists, and the ending came together very nicely! If you have read Presumed Innocent, you must read Innocent. If you have not read either, and enjoy crime/mystery/thriller novels, then you need to read both of these wonderful works by Scott Turow.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
