Book Club – October meeting

‘Innocent’ by Scott Turow.
Rusty Sabich, a lawyer, is accused of murdering his wife.  This novel got the thumbs down from everyone.  We agreed that the writing was turgid, the plot tedious and convoluted, the characters were two-dimensional, and we found difficulties in understanding the legal jargon of the American Court.  Even the ending was unsatisfactory as nothing is proved either way and Sabich escapes further prosecution due to some obscure legal twist.  Did Sabich kill his wife or did she commit suicide?  None of us had a clue.  Cherry Taylor.
