Good story spoilt by heavy-handed execution
Even though I thought the story-line in this novel was good and kept me engaged, I was a bit disappointed with the quality of the writing, given all the good reviews. Some of the dialogue was way too implausible and stilted and the satire was very heavy-handed. For example, he had people testifying using language and a level of detail that did not ring true - people speaking spontaneously under pressure don't come off sounding so polished. It did not strike the right balance for me. Having said that, it was an easy listen and the multi-voiced narration was well done.

I just loved this book. A story that transported you away from the everyday and held you to the very last page. Witty, wise and wonderful.
