Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on December 16, 2016
Can't say I cared for this one, although I was able to finish it. I was convinced to read this book by a review that claimed it was the Confederacy of Dunces of this decade. This book is much different, and I didn't enjoy it nearly as much.

It's possible this book might be funny as kind of an inside joke if you went to Harvard Law School or are a Law nerd. I didn't laugh at anything after the earliest part of the book. A lot of the intended humor focused on facts about Harvard and Latin phrases relating to law. The rest of the humor seemed to depend on absurd situations that were so over the top that they were often confusing rather than funny.

Aside from the main character, I didn't think anyone else in the book was very funny or memorable. Supporting characters seem to behave inconsistently, and their actions often don't have a clear motivation or goal.
