Publisher's Summary

Savannah Law, a novel. A young law professor's obsession with a female student and a politically charged, media-frenzy criminal trial that pits the nation's most successful criminal trial lawyer against Savannah prosecutors, provide the backdrop for Savannah Law. The intense drama - both inside and outside the courtroom - builds to an unexpected climax in an unforgettable final chapter. Savannah Law is filled with colorful but believable characters, including a few cantankerous law professors, who demonstrate their vanity and eccentricities at the weekly faculty meetings. The novel will appeal to anyone who enjoys a legal thriller or Southern novel.

    Story
    "Politicians stuff ballots, prosecutors ..."

    stuff witnesses."

    A superbly written book which had this reader gripped from the very beginning.
    Set around the college campus of a law school, we are introduced to numerous characters, all well developed, but in particular Jennifer, a newbie just starting at the rapidly growing in status Savannah Law School and Scott, a senior close to leaving, already entrusted with conducting small legal cases. But this isn't solely about a single legal battle and the nefarious goings on behind scenes to win a courtroom battle, though that is there, too, but also about the politics behind the election of a new Dean of the college, the history of the area and the school in particular, the residents and their backgrounds and a stalking of unpleasant proportions. It is full of interesting, sometimes funny, anecdotes and trivia facts which make for a fully rounded picture of place and characters. In some ways slow moving, it is quite rivetting overall with unexpected twists which surprise the protagonists as much as the reader. Conversation is so natural, this book really feels like a window into a real life campus.
    This is completely reinforced by narrator, Bob Johnson. His delivery is that of a gentle storyteller, his voice perfectly matched to the book. Excellent.

    A story based in 2006, superficially easy going but with sharks swimming beneath the surface. A wonderful book. I was fortunate in being gifted a complimentary copy of Savannah Law, at my request, by the rights holder via Audiobook Boom, without any expectations in return. Thank you so much. It is a fully rounded jewel of a book and, as such, highly recommended.

    Story
    "Boring like studying for law degree."

    I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author / narrator / publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.

    Courtroom drama as story subject can be very powerful. There are multiple awesome movies in that "genre". And thus I'm a fan. But this book let me down. It's sooo.... darn... slow. Almost absolutely nothing interesting happens for chapters after chapters. I guess the author wanted to spend time on building characters. But sadly so much time was spent on it that it got super boring. I lost all interest in the characters and didn't get to the supposedly great courtroom scenes.

    The narration was really bad too. The narrator didn't make any effort whatsoever to sound different for different characters. Everyone sounds the same, making it impossible to keep track of who said what.

    Most possibly the first time I'm rating any book 1 star in all 3 criteria.

    "Great!"

    If you like mysteries and legal thrillers - this is the perfect book for you. I really enjoyed this story and it kept me interested all the way through. I love when a story is unpredictable and can take me by surprise and this book definitely did that. Narration was fantastic!

    "Good overall book. Felt very slow in the beginning"

    Good overall book. Felt very slow in the beginning. By the time the real plot twists came it felt rushed as compared to the 30 chapters of character building.

    Good performance by Bob Johnson especially with wide range of Southern accents .

    I was provided this book at no cost in exchange for an honest review

    "Great Legal Thriller"

    Savannah Law was a lengthy book but completely worth the listen! The main plot isn't revealed until fairly late in the story, with many moving parts to set it up. The drama unfolded in a way that I didn't see coming. Along the way, I was fascinated with the trial antics and the interesting and sometimes creepy characters. My interest was held throughout, leading up to the thrilling conclusion. I've listened to several audiobooks narrated by Bob Johnson and am a fan of his narrative style. I loved his character voices and could generally distinguish them with ease. I really enjoyed Savannah Law and would recommend it.

    Story
    "More character development, less thrill"

    Although the suspense builds dramatically towards the end of this book, most of the story is character development. The characters are interesting and
    believable for the most part. The obligatory romance is not too sappy and develops more realistically over time without the angst present in so many romance
    novels.

    There is some exciting courtroom drama and a twist at the end that didn't surprise me as much as it was obviously intended to do. It felt a little contrived,
    but it kept me listening, and overall, I was not disappointed with the story.

    I wasn't particularly fond of Bob Johnson's style of narration. Nothing I can definitively describe. He distinguished character voices adequately, but
    his overall presentation just didn't work for me very well. It wasn't bad and I didn't have any trouble listening to the audiobook.

    This is the first book in a series and I look forward to hearing and reviewing the next book in this series.

    "A Law Drama"

    I enjoyed the overall story, but found it difficult to identify the plot for much of the book. There were also a lot of inconsequential characters' introduced making the story line hard to follow.

    "College Law"

    Savannah Law is a fast paced book. I enjoyed listening to this book while the drama unfolded. The characters and scenes where most events took place are portrayed well. The storyline wraps around college life and politics as well as criminal court proceedings. The sub plots weave interesting twists to the main story. The characters were believable, however one of the main characters, Jennifer, seemed to have little common sense at times. An enjoyable listen with an insight to Law college life and courtroom drama.

    "More than I expected!"

    I enjoy legal thrillers that have more than one thing going on. This book has some very unexpected twists, a love story, a trial, and a threat. I thought the characters were well developed and enjoyed many of them. I have listened to other books by both this author and narrator and thought this book was much better than other people have. I enjoy southern legal stories and will continue to listen to more of them by this talented team. Due to the length of this book, I was not able to continuously listen and absorb the story.

    "We couldn't suffer through narration!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I didn't get far enough into the book to give it a fair rating due to the narrator.


    What could William Eleazer have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I wish the author could have had some input into the choice of narrator.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Bob Johnson?

    Anyone.


    Any additional comments?

    I have been a member of Audible for 17 years and have never returned a book until now. I simply could not listen to the narrator. I was distracted by the rapid monotone voice. Sorry, I was looking forward to the read. Perhaps if it is reread by another I will try it again.
