I think this book is boring for me. It is a story that described a young student that just graduaed from law school and helped a poor family agasint to the large insurance company with their poor sick son, and how the indifference human society make him feel disappointed. Maybe it will attacked someone who like the plot up and down, but for me, I just think these kind of story cannot be any more boring.
