    1. DNF'ed at 29%At one point, Ben and Lisa's arguments went like this "Second of all, even if I do go to a firm, I’ll be going for ten thousand dollars more than you will.”“You will not,” Lisa said.“I will too.”“Will not.”And I realized that I couldn't take it anymore. I know that this is Meltzer's first book and I commended him for being able to write this when he was still in law school. But I found the writing to be rookie-ish and lacked edge which I usually look forward to when [...]


    2. I had to keep reminding myself that this was an earlier book of Meltzer's because I could not think of a dumber main character. Ben Addison, newly graduated from Yale Law School, is chosen to be a law clerk for the Supreme Court. On his first day, during orientation, the clerks are told to keep their mouths closed about cases being decided. Shortly thereafer, Ben blabs a decision ahead of time to someone he only talked to on the phone and is meeting for the first time. Surprise, Surprise! This p [...]


    3. This book could have been so much more with a better ending. Such suspense through the entire story and then the ending was less than stellar. One thing that is very important for me is an author who knows how to close the story and this was just not there. 7 out of 10.


    4. This was my second Brad Meltzer read and it did nothing to improve my opinion of him as an author.The main character is unbelievably unreal, he is supposed to be this highflyer , just out of college young legal egal but has the maturity of an adolescent, his constant responce to just about everything is. i don`t want to hear it/ i don`t want to talk about it.The conversation between the 4 friends is haltingly, hackingly written without a natural flow.Mr. Meltzer has been likened to John Grisham [...]


    5. I'm not at all sure how I missed this when it first came out but what a treat to find it now. This is a fabulous story. Ben Addison and Lisa Nathan are two of the very few chosen to clerk for the Supreme Court. They are the crème de la crème. But, one small mistake takes them into a book full of trust and mistrust. This story has characters who are so real, I swear I would recognize them on the street. And this mystery plot is so good that the pages turn themselves and there isn't even one sin [...]


    6. I enjoyed the plot of this book because I worked as a law clerk after finishing law school. The themes hit close to home. It was a good, fast read, though somewhat predictable. My main complaint is that the style is just super cheesy---very Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew---simple language; lame dialogue. I've started The Millionaires and it seems even worse haha.


    7. Hmmm. Okay, so I bought this book at the airport. Maybe it's better if you read it during vacation rather than starting it on your way home. The characters seemed really undeveloped. So much effort went into making the characters seem clever and funny that they really just seemed to be snarky little brats. As for the plot, I found it to be very predictable. I give Meltzer credit. I certainly couldn't have written a book while attending law school. Maybe that was his problem--he was surrounded by [...]



    8. The books begins with an inviting premise, an innocent, if particularly stupid mistake. Then it unravels into shallow characters, obnoxious eye rolling dialogue and took me to a point where I didn't care about the outcome.


    9. THE TENTH JUSTICE - DNFMeltzer, Brad - 1st bookA Washington-based thriller about four ambitious twenty-something housemates, fresh out of college and eager to make their mark in their careers. When one of them, Ben Addison, is tricked into leaking a Supreme Court decision on a corporate merger in advance, he lands them all in big trouble.I found the protagonist just TSTL (too stupid to live) and could not even finish the book.


    10. Inelegant writing, unrealistic dialog, and shallow and unlikeable characters. I gave up about a third of the way in.




    11. Always start with the positive So, yes. I read it, lasted all the way through, and don't think of it as time lamentably and irretrievably lost.That having been said Is it too much to ask for books in which the Perilous Plot is advanced by means other than abject stupidity on the part of the primary characters? Particularly characters who are supposed to be so very, very smart in the first place? It's not fair or intended that this be taken -primarily- as a slight on this particular book, it's ju [...]


    12. I thought the opening premise was exciting - a new law clerk for the US Supreme Court violates the Code of Ethics within the first months of his employment. The violation results in his providing someone who used to clerk (or did he) with valuable information about a Supreme Court decision that would be announced in a few days; the manipulator makes money off of this knowledge and now has the clerk in his net. The twists and turns the story took from there, were far too many to be believable. So [...]


    13. I actually read some of the Graphic Novels that Mr Meltzer before reading this book. It is because of his reading his comic books that I wanted to read his novels. In many ways I was not disappointed at all — his dialogue is terrific. I can see how he easily makes the transition to graphic novels. He has an ear for dialogue.In addition, the plot is fairly tight. It snakes up on you and the various acts in the book (it most clearly is divided into a three part novel) are terrific.So, why only t [...]


    14. Legal thriller - Ben Addison, a Yale Law School grad, is working as a clerk for a highly respected Supreme Court justice and being aggressively courted by a prestigious law firm. But this golden boy is brought down to earth when a wily con artist dupes him into revealing the confidential outcome of an upcoming Court decision involving millions of dollars. Terrified of ruining his career, Addison refuses to go to the authorities and admit his mistake. Instead, he enlists the aid of his co-clerk, [...]


    15. After reading a few thick serious novels in a row, I wanted something light and trashy for my spring break reading. And I guess I got what I asked for, but as someone who has often enjoyed cheesy thrillers and even enjoyed other books by Meltzer in the past, I still found this one a bit too predictable and a bit too cheesily written. I know it was his first novel, and it definitely kept me engaged so maybe I shouldnt complain TOO much, but I would have preferred more realistic characters and dia [...]


    16. Fresh out of Yale Law, Ben Addison is a new clerk for one of the Supreme Court's most respected justices. He's as bright and conscientious as they come -- and just as green. When Ben inadvertently reveals the confidential outcome of an upcoming Court decision, one of the parties in the case makes millions. Needless to say, Ben starts to sweat.This was Meltzer's first novel. I like this one so well I have read many others.


    17. I never thought this book would end. I kept hoping it would turn around. It didn't. I should have put it down at 100 pages. The dialogue was terrible and repetitive. The premise was interesting but there was never any build in the plot. Knowing that it was a first novel I'm hoping his later works get better. I'm not sure I'll risk an attempt to find out. It could have been a decent (if not simply far shorter) book with a skilled editor. I blame him/her as much as, if not more than, the author.


    18. I thought I was in the mood for a thriller, but this one didn't pull me in. The premise sounded interesting enough, and I liked what I learned about the inner workings of the Supreme Court in the bit that I read. However, I couldn't get past the supposedly witty, often sexual, banter of the characters. When I found myself rolling my eyes on every page I decided to just put the book down!


    19. This was a tough read for me. I knew that there would be twists. In a well developed novel, I believe the story where it is and then get to the twist. Here, I felt I needed to suspend all belief in what I was reading and wait to see what was really happening. Additionally, I never really felt like I got to know the characters well enough, adding to the suspension of belief.


    20. If you enjoy legal thrillers, you won't be able to put this book down. The character and plot development are fused into the very first pages, and you never get to relax until you reach the last page.


    21. This is a riveting story about recent law school graduates clerking for the Supreme Court. It was the first novel for Brad Meltzer and helped launch Rob Weisbach's imprint at Morrow. Brad turned out to be an extremely nice guy, well deserving of his success.





    22. A strong debut novel from an eventual NY Times bestselling author, but I didn't think it was in the upper echelon of debuts. The MC was a bit hard to bond with since he came off as brash, impulsive, and guided by his emotions and ego rather than logic and reason along with not hurting his friends by drawing them into his problem.The ultimate climax seemed a bit contrived since the reader wasn't privy to certain information and the "reason" of not being able to trust a few of the characters with [...]


    23. Abit disappointedI have read several of Meltzer's books and have loved them, I bought this one because it was his first and the 20th anniversary of it's publication. The general story was actually very good and the ending was excellent but the characters where rather obnoxious and the temper tantrums made me want to beat the carp out of them, their where constant references to how great and caring the liberal judges where and how mean and draconian the conservative judges where, give me a break. [...]


    24. Ben Addison's life is going according to play. He has just landed a dream job as US Supreme Court Law Clerk. He is being recruited by a top law firm. Until he makes a mistake that threatens not only his career, but that of his roommates and co-clerk.This is one of Brad Meltzer's earlier works. While most of his recent thrillers are action based and fast paced, this novel relies heavily on dialogue and moves slower. The plot is feasible but seems a little sophomoric. As a fan of Brad Meltzer, I w [...]
