But they don’t know who to believe…
💭MY THOUGHTS 💭
Hands up who likes to watch a court room drama. I do. I love being able to follow a case and try and piece together the evidence to find out whether the accused is guilty or not guilty.
This book is perfect for fans of court room dramas. We get to sit in on the deliberations and discussions that the jury on this case are having. It’s great to get an in depth look at how each member of the jury feel toward the case. How their backgrounds, their upbringing and their lives can have an effect on their judgement. It felt like we were a fly on the wall just eavesdropping in on their thoughts.
The story is told from different viewpoints.
Firstly, from the jurors debating room. Then a timeline of the night in question, where we get each characters take on the events. I enjoyed this format as we get to piece together and make our own deductions on what happened. But, what I found was that we automatically make snap judgements and this can usually be wrong. I made plenty of assumptions based on what I was reading and found I was quite wrong on few occasions. Even when I thought I had it all figured out, my judgements were put to question and I was shocked.
What I liked about this story is that yes it is a fictional story and written for our entertainment and reading joy. However, it also makes us think about how this could be a reality. There are a lot of facts about rape cases thrown into the story to make us step back and think.
This story is written perfectly and made to give the reader a sense of being involved in the case.
