The book hints at the personal changes and self-evaluation that occur when Grayson graduates and enters the real world, leaving the reader wondering about a possible sequel. Dark, sometimes disturbing, The Law Review is fast-paced and provocative, a must-read for anyone thinking about law school. For others, it is a great story, well-told.
The novel is about a group of ambitious law students wanting to advance their careers by being on the Law Review. The Editor of the Review is murdered. This is unlike the normal "who done it" because these top law students knew far more law than the police or prosecuters. This has more twists and turns than a vineyard.
Scott Gaille had more gratuitous sex than was necessary. But he certainly conveyed the pressures these law students were under. Many Law Review types really are under the delusion that they are more than pretentious clerks. Gaille picks up these delusions very accurately and creates actions that are not implausible.
This is an incredible read. This book is also evidence that one needs a strong publisher to give a novel adequate exposure. This should be a best seller but probably will never receive the promotion is deserves.
This book is so bad I cannot imagine anyone who has not attended the University of Chicago wasting their time reading it. And, aside from the thrill of recognition, I can't imagine anyone who did go to U of C taking the time to read it either.
Painful characters. Abhorrent dialogue. Plot twists that felt like he just got bored and started a separate book.
My mother visited, saw this on a shelf, picked it up as a quick read, and couldn't put down something this awful. It was unquestionably the worst thing she'd ever read. She just had to see how much worse the book would get.
It makes me sad that people think this is an accurate representation of law school.
