Please. This was tiresome. This guy seemed to think going to Harvard Law School was going to be like playing musical chairs, where everyone got a chair. I mean, not only is it law school, but it's Harvard. And he's shocked that everyone is overly competitive and a little bit whacked out because of it. Even though the class load was rough, he was still able to manage to get 6 hours of sleep most nights, and only pulled one all nighter (I know, Amy. I died a little inside when I read that too.)

Amy Only one all-nighter, and he managed to become not only an undoubtedly well-paid lawyer, but also a bestselling author many times over. Where the hell did we go wrong, Liz?

Suede I believe the correct question is where did we NOT go wrong. Every decision I've made in the past 3 years was wrong.

BT Whatever. Lawyers are way underpaid.

BT Wait, WE GOT MARRIED IN THE LAST THREE YEARS (I think).

Thornfield I realize that this review is almost 9 years old, but it shows up first in the list so I wanted to comment. I doubt "Suede" made it past the first 25 pages. There is WAY more in One-L than tiresome bitching. One-L is well-written and grabs your attention from page 1 to the end. In my experience, complainers will usually complain about others long before they look in the mirror. Not that I'm complaining.............so bring it on, but please read the book first.
