Ordinary Heroes

by Scott Turow

Read it for a book discussion.

This is the story of David Dubin, as told by his son, Stewart Dubinsky, as well as David himself. Dubin served as a JAG lawyer during World War II. Through his letters and his narrative, Dubin takes us to the war itself, as well as a world of intrigue, and yes, romance. Interspersed is Stewart's own commentary (which is sometimes full of surprise) on his father's adventures.

This is long, long, long and boring, boring, boring. How could Scott Turow do this to me? The king of the legal thriller has written a dry and dull account of WWII. Yuck!
