I've liked many of Turow's books in the past, and so this was the book I chose as my indoctrination into the wonderful world of audio books and audible.com. I'm not upset at all about my choice. The story is engrossing from the start and maintains that quality throughout. As this was my first audio book, I could see where the narrator is key to enjoying the book. In this case, he(J.R. Horne)was spot on. His accents made the characters' dialogue a breeze to follow and his pacing was quite excellent. It was like being at a play. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Great job, Scott, and thanks for the good read, Mr. Horne.

This book offers a very different perspective on our legal system. It is much more about the system than about the man who is rightly/wrongly sentenced to death row. It was captivating and I recommend it highly.

Scott Turow's first two books, "Presumed Innocent" and "Burden of Proof", should be in anyone's top ten of legal thrillers - wonderful reads. His later work was never of the same quality and I have struggled and sometimes failed to get through a few pretty stodgy efforts.
"Reversible Errors", I am glad to say, gets back closer to the high standards of his early books. Plot and character development are kept in balance and woven together cleverly; momentum only occasionally falters; and whilst the ending is perhaps a little too easy to guess and so lacks the nail-biting quality of the best legal thrillers, the way the story is unfolded and draws to its conclusion is never less than absorbing, and very enjoyable.
The narration was top-notch too - judgement of pace - very important in Scott Turow's books which can ramble - was near faultless, as was tone, and the characters were all very well drawn.
Overall, warmly recommended particularly if you like legal thrillers.
