The Seven Minutes Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Seven Minutes

Michael Barret has been asked by a friend to join him in a small law partnership, but has also been offered a huge salary to go into big business. He's certain of his choice, till he is given a chance to be involved with a major case involved with protecting free speech.

The case is about the explicit book "The Seven Minutes", which some people consider pornography, while others, Barret included, feel is impressive literature. The main focus of the prosecution's case is a teenager who bought the book, and was soon after arrested for rape. According to the prosecution, the book insinuated the boy to do what he did, so it must be banned.

The novel follows the course of the trial, as both Barret and the prosecutor search for reputable witnesses to prove their side.
