Rusty’s Reading List 2017 | June 15, 2017

Associate

 

This the last of the care package books a friend brought me when I was hospitalized last year. (They weren’t books he ‘chose’, just some from a take-a-book, leave-a-book spot in his condo lobby.)
This is ‘best-seller’ legal thriller stuff. In other words, not my cup of tea… but what the hell, I figured! I’ll give it a chance!

I give it a solid ‘meh’. Cliche after cliche. It is just a string of well-trod tropes, one after another. There was a ‘mystery’, but the kind that was neither clever nor with clues so you could feel clever.

I know some people really like this stuff, but some people really like watching CSI too.

Not for me.
