Remember The Paper Chase? Here's another exposé of Harvard Law School, this time by a lawyer who pens bestsellers (Presumed Innocent) in his spare time. It's fascinating listening for fans of the law or of Turow himself. But it misses an A+ because Paul Rudd (you saw him in the film Clueless) reads in a low-pitched, gravelly monotone. He seems to be deliberately reining himself in--maybe he's leery of overplaying the intense, often emotional text. Occasionally, he lets himself go, and you hear the outstanding reader that he will be someday. S.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 99]
