One One Five Book Reviews
Alan Manly, Julian Day and Graeme Brosnan’s One One Five has received many congratulatory reviews from our readers and the NSW Law Society Journal.
In his review, “Spear carriers in a production of Aida,” barrister, David Ash, gave his perspective of One One Five and its critique of litigation and lawyers. David stated that he found One One Five difficult, “…but I’m glad I finished it. It reminds us that many intelligent and adventurous souls view the legal system with contempt, and litigation with utter contempt.” He also found, “the book contains some gems” and sympathised with the protagonists. David’s book review can be found in the November 2011 issue of the Law Society Journal, on page 90, beside Bob Campbell’s review of Michael Kirby’s A Private Life.
"Congratulations guys! A great read. I actually couldn’t put it down. Very well put together. I just thank God it wasn’t me, though it could have been. I know you had to use a false name for legal reasons, but I knew your protagonist quite well, and it was not a pleasant experience." - Graeme Philipson.
“I really enjoyed One One Five. Thank you. Should you be looking for funds for the movie, do count me in! This will be up there with The Castle. Congratulations on your tenacity and winning out at the end. And for a great book.” - Christopher Campbell.
