Susan Rieger, the author of this book is a highly intelligent writer. Her bio says she taught law to undergraduates at Columbia and Yale, girlfriend doesn't mess around when it comes to knowing the law.
However, if this book were to fall into the chick lit genre, many women will be disappointed.
Buy a paperback copy.
Skim through it and rip out the pages that look like legal documentation.
Leave the rest.
It's the witty and clever story of Sophie, a criminal lawyer, who gets thrown into a divorce settlement of a high profile client. The novel is told through legal correspondance, e-mails, memos, and legal documents.
Fans of The Good Wife won't be able to put this book down, those who hate wordy lawyers will definitely put this book down.
Out of 5 stars I give it a 3 mainly because I feel the editors could have pitched several hundred pages and the book would not have suffered because of it.
I received a copy of The Divorce Papers from Blogging for Books in exchange for a fair and honest review of the book!
