Splendid… every bit as gripping and profound as its predecessors… Turow is in a category of his own.
THE LAWS OF OUR FATHERS tackles an ambitious theme: How do children break free of their elders to live meaningful, whole lives?
No other novel this year is likely to be as thoughtful, as timely and richly detailed, and as satisfying to read… a tour de force.
The Bonfire of the Vanities meets The Big Chill… moving compelling… wonderfully colorful.
Enthralling… several cuts above the popular competition.
Powerful… a big, ambitious novel… two superb mystery stories and one of the most thoughtful and satisfying novels this year… Turow's best book.
Absorbing… an ambitious novel and, happily, the author's firm grasp is more than equal to his reach.
From the evocative opening paragraph, Turow reaffirms all that separates him from most of his contemporaries… There are so many reasons to savor this book. The language is breathtaking… it's the real deal.
His dialogue is superb, and his scenes move with pace and authority. The opening is a tour de force of beautifully orchestrated action writing.
