Joshua Adams is a Harvard-trained Philadelphia lawyer and managing partner of White & Marks, a prestigious 300-plus-person law firm. The story revolves around a disputed charge of sexual harassment by a former white female associate against a prominent black senior partner. In addition, crafty European interests seek to wrest control of the firm’s largest real estate client. Meanwhile, Joshua must contend with difficult personal issues: marital problems, a young daughter with an eating disorder and two beautiful but confusing women.
He Said She Said by Frederick Blumberg is a novel completely focused on lawyers and the law work they do. Tons of terminology, that relates to law that I wasn’t familiar with…made it a little less easy for me to be swept up into the story. The drama on the other hand was quite a rollercoaster ride. The main character, Joshua Adams has his hands full. A wife who makes marriage less like marriage, a daughter with issues, and a major case at hand. I didn’t like Joshua Adams wife at all. I felt sympahty for the man throughout the book. The pages went by fast. They were filled with a lot of dialogue and action. Never a boring moment. Stressful for the main character but engaging for readers once the terminology is put behind them. I liked getting an insiders view and tour into a lawyer’s way of life both at work and personal too. It truly helped in showing what Joshua Adams was really like. Four amazing things happen inside this fictional piece. I woos happy with the way the story ended. There was some humor woven into the tale. It revolved around how women were a mystery to the main character. Some are hard to deal with while others are not. Trying to figure women out…is tough. Those moments made me laugh. Men will never understand women fully. Overall, He Said She Said is an entertaining read. I recommend to readers everywhere.
