Doubt (Caroline Auden #1) Reviews
Finally decided to give up on this novel. I'm more than 20% in and nothing great has happened. Not even a little bit of excitement to try and push me to read more. 20% is my standard "I draw the line here" rule, so there's that.
I stopped at 25%. This book seems to be listening to the never ending internal anxiety monologue of the lead character.
Here is a summary of her never ending thoughts: "omg this is really important. What if I don't do a good job????" Now repeat forever.
I found myself not breathing many times. I became Caroline and felt all of the emotions she was feeling. C. E. Tobisman has a way of writing that brings you up close and personal with the character, Caroline Auden. Lots of twists and turns through the book bring you to an ending that you could not see coming. I look forward to following her in more books. What could be more exciting than a former computer hacker turned lawyer who just wants to help people and not afraid to face opponents that tr ...more
Wow, best book I've read in a while. I was in shock! Love books like this. You have a new fan!
Not Great, but not bad.
I honestly do not know how to properly rate this book. I think that 3.5 stars would be best. I thought that the plot was great, fighting for the greater good. It was very believable. Large company makes a product that causes sickness and death to many due to their lack of care or concern. We all know that many companies have dealt this before. However, I found some of the events to be rather far fetched. Not even a quarter of the things that happened would ever happen in ...more
A computer hacker turned lawyer. Of course I had to read this.
The story is good, my only issue with this book is that I wish there would have been be more hacking involved.
Not too much technical stuff for a book about an ex-hacker and not much legal stuff for a legal thriller, but I'll definitely read the next one in the series. I really hope there's more hacking involved #FingersCrossed!
Perhaps a "guilty" pleasure, but I found C. E. Tobisman's legal thriller to be a good read. Doubt, published in 2016, is the first of a series named after the narrator and lead character, Caroline Auden. Tobisman tells a tantalizing tale. The mystery and legal maneuvering involved in the big business court case kept me reading, but also the bond with Carolyn that the story establishes. Carolyn, a techie who makes a career change to become a lawyer, has many doubts--about the case and the people ...more
It has been a really long time since I was able to finish a book in a single sitting. I stumbled upon this book as an editor's recommendation on Amazon and since I liked the blurb, I decided to try it out.
Caroline is fresh out of law school and has been recruited to work with Louis Stern who also happened to be her professor at UCLA. While being a very smart student in her law class, she has the rare distinction of also being a software engineer. She has also shown the unique ability ...more
