Mini review: “The Collini Case” by Ferdinand von Schirach

This short book has received excellent reviews from all over the place.  I’m not sure why.

It is written well enough (at least in the English translation) and it certainly makes no attempts to stretch out the story unnecessarily. It’s a fairly simple story and easy to predict.

It’s only 190 pages long – there is nothing wrong with that – but the type in my printed copy was large. Printed at regular size it could go down to about 150 if not less. I feel a little short changed.

I never thought I’d say this but if you want a legal thriller then go for some John Grisham.
