lives tangled during sixties figure in trial of gangbanger in 90s

Years ago I read one of Scott Turow's books - I have no clue which one - and it offended me in some way that I cannot now remember. Since I can't remember, I decided to forgive and give him another shot. Am I ever glad I did. The Laws of our Fathers follows a court case as it unfolds, but with flashbacks to the early 70's, explains how things go to where they are. The fascinating characters in the book are my age and lived the things I lived and the whole story - a nice, long, meaty story - was captivating. ( )

5642. The Laws of the Fathers, by Scott Turow (read 7 Aug 2019) This is the sixth book I've read by this author. I was so tremendously impressed and caught up by his book, One L, about his first year in law school (which I read 20 May 1982) that i have often succumbed to reading his books, though none has ever impressed me the way One L did. The Laws of the Fathers was published in 1996 and is fiction, telling of a woman judge who tries a murder case involving lawyers she has known since her youth and the trial is attended by a columnist who twenty years before the judge, then in her early twenties, cohabitated with. She has since married, had a child, and divorced the child's father. Seth, the columnist, also has married, had a son (who died) and a daughter. No character in the book pays any attention to the Sixth Commandment, and the author inserts a few episodes pornagraphic in nature--which adds nothing to the tenor of the book. The trial is fairly interesting as is the account of the characters in their youth when they were hot against the Vietnam War--Seth almost goes to Canada to escape the draft. The trial ends and the book goes downhill from there, with much agonizing by the characters which I was so bored by that I was dismayed by how much of the book still remained to be read. So, some of the book is of interest but much is not. ( )

I was surprised that this was so looong. I was expecting a mystery from Scott Turow, but this was not one. I enjoyed the characters and the readers. I did read it all the way to the end, but was very ready for my next read. ( )

I've been a book junkie for 56 years. With that in mind, try to imagine how many books I have completed. That said, this is one of the most interesting novels I've ever had the pleasure of reading. Thank you, Mr. Turow. Well done!! ( )

Those of us born in the years of bounty after World War II knew we had a different outlook than earlier generations of Americans. Blinkered by need, they had come of age with narrower commitments-to the glory of God, the glee of acquisition, or the mean little business of survival. But we took seriously the promise of the Declaration of Independence that the birthright of America was not merely life or liberty, but the pursuit of happiness. Personally, as a child, I always assumed that was the point of growing up. So I'd feel better than I did then.

Which leaves us with the awful doomed inquiry of our middle years, the harpy's voice that whispers in dreams, at sunrise, at those unforeseen, instants of drilling isolation; Is this as happy as I will ever be? Do I have the right to just a little more? Or is there nothing better I should hope for?
