just verdicts literary short stories Reviews
I'm a big fan of JML (Joseph Max Lewis). I loved his first book The Diaries of Pontius Pilate and love his writing style. His style was apparent in Just Verdicts as well. I would've given this set of short stories a 5 star rating, but the last of the stories wasn't as good as the other two in my opinion. I got the feeling that the overall point of these three stories is that lawyers as hated as they are, are people too and not just evil, soulless robots out to take your soul. Each of these stories expresses this in it's own way. Far too often Lawyers are viewed as less than human and even though these are merely stories of fiction, it stirred a new found respect for lawyers. The bad lawyers out there ruin it for the good honest ones. My degree is in criminal justice and homeland security, which is primarily used by the LEOs (Law Enforcement Officers) and we don't really get a lot of training and experience in the courtroom. So I can honestly say that I haven't developed much respect yet for the courtroom players and really don't have a clue what life is like for them. Just Verdicts reminded me that to be an excellent LEO or agent in the DHS protecting America harmoniously through the law, I need to delve more into the world in the court room. I've always been obsessed with Lee Child's Jack Reacher character, Brad Thor's Scot Harvath, Alex Berenson's John Wells, or Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp. All great protagonist, but all of them are front line warriors in the justice system. I'd like to see JML create a protagonist that’s both a lawyer and a fighter. He's proven here in Just Verdicts he can write this genre and I hope he continues to do so. Overall it was a great set of stories and will suggest it to some of my friends.
Wow! This was great! It had me hooked from the very first paragraph! Was written very well and I hope he does some more like this.Although fiction I could see these things really happening in to days world. You can't help but be filled with emotion reading these!A must read no matter what you enjoy reading! I also posted a review at B and N.
Downloaded this a while ago after reading other books by Joseph Max Lewis that I thoroughly enjoyed. In my enthusiasm for his writing style, character development and story telling I failed to notice they were short stories -- not a big fan! Had some time to kill today so I decided to read them. Am I happy I did. Well written and left me wanting more. Broken hearted about the death in redemption! It is hard to lose your best friend. Can't wait to read more by this author.
I never thought I'd enjoy short stories but this one is very good. He does quite well with first person narrative. Although each story (there are 3 of them) is very short, it made me feel like reading full length stories. They are emotional and rich. I enjoyed the book a lot. I hope the author compiles more of these stories. I enjoy legal stories.
Amazing! Three stories that are so real, so heart-breaking...reads like ripped from the headlines. Very good, Max! The author's background sizzles and if you don't know him, you'll want to acquaint yourself promptly.
Love these short stories. They all have a message. Each could be a full length novel, especially Redemption. :) 4 stars only because I want more, especially from Redemption. :) It's that great. :) Recommended for anyone who enjoys stories with meaning. :)
I wrote this one too and thought it was every bit as good as the first one I wrote.
Very concise and interesting short stories. Packed a lot in just a few pages for each short story. Book is only about 35 pages. Intriguing stories. Very good!
A short and fun read.
