    1. I chose this satirical look at the world of big law firms for our most recent book club meeting (as our book club consists entirely of people I either met at Uni studying law or at work, I thought it'd be appreciated). Hugh Walker, top litigation lawyer with a lovely view from his office window, feels as if he's losing his soul - and so he tries, somewhat messily, to redeem himself. It is very funny - over the top, but with enough truth to it to make you cringe slightly while you're laughing. I [...]

    2. A very funny, satire about a top tier law firm in Sydney with big business clients (insurance companies, banks, etc.) Hugh has been working for this top tier law firm for 6 years but his conscious means he's questioning his choices and his own behaviour. He used to represent the little guy, the underdog. This law firm is about harbour views, long lunches, dubious time sheets, overcharging clients, unethical behaviour, etc. Whilst obviously exaggerated, I'm sure it's pretty close to the truth!

    3. A fun read. Fast paced, finished in in two days.It's about a personal-injury lawyer-cum-fast paced, French-cuff wearing insurance litigation defense attourny, and the moral vacuousness of his new life. Descriptions of the partners in the firm are very funny.

    4. Read this some time ago it gave me an insight into the law and what I'd often imagined happens behind closed doors. I felt it was done to enable the profession the opportunity to laugh at themselves. The channel 2 adaptation of this book was very enjoyable and well acted. Lynne

    5. This book was a DNF, something quite rare for me. I don't like to give up on a book but after reading nearly half of it, it was time to quit. The purpose of a fiction book is to create something that draws the reader in, something that makes the reader want to pick up the book and continue reading to see how the plot will resolve. This book didn't seem to have any direction and the plot was weak and uninspiring, which meant that the book became so boring that I didn't care what happened next. Th [...]

    6. Boring book although it was well written. Subject matter was Not interesting. Maybe need to be in the legal profession to appreciate.
