About the book:
Oh come on, no explanation necessary, we all KNOW what this book is about…….
My Two Cents
I have mixed feelings about this book. It’s not that I didn’t enjoy it, I did. BUT, if you followed the trial like I did which was not missing a second, watching all of the replays, etc on HLN and anywhere else I could find them, then you really didn’t learn anything from listening to the book.
I thought it would have more behind the scenes dirt. It had some, but not a whole lot. IF you never paid any attention to what was going on with the trial and never saw anything on the news then you will learn a great deal from this book.
That being said I will tell you what I enjoyed….
*I loved Jeff Ashton narrating. I don’t think listening to anyone else read it would have done it justice. The emotions that Mr. Ashton felt came across very well. Especially his dislike of Casey and Jose Baez! At times that was comical.
*I enjoyed the little bit of back story about the other lawyers which showed them as normal people.
*Mr. Ashton’s honestly was powerful. Though we never had a doubt about his feelings, listening to him tell the story only proved even more how passionate he was about the case.
*The insight about the jury selection and the jury itself was interesting. There were some details that I didn’t know.
I don’t think saying there were things that I didn’t like is a fair statement. As I said, I thought it would be more of an eye opener, include never told information, etc. Maybe that is not allowed, maybe there is none! definitely worth a listen if you have any interest in this case.
Telly is giving a 4/5 only due to it not telling me anything that was not already known.
