I would recommend this book. It was very well written and informative.
The feeling and emotion
This is more of a bitter recounting of a failed prosecution than an insightful look at the case. I probably should have known better than to expect objectivity, but I would have thought a former prosecutor would have more respect for the jury system.
There were interesting elements of the case discussed, but this reads more like a lengthy sniping at Casey Anthony and her attorney.
It was, however, well narrated.
its not that I love anything about this book. I'm just about the truth.
He did his job.
though shall not judge
Good insights to the true story still a disappointment to the outcome. I learned a lot more about this case though that the media didn't tell you.
Don't like bad narrators ruining good writing. To be fair, liking someone's voice is subjective but good narration has sensitivity, nuance, power and a rich understanding of the text. Minor pet peeve: narrators who've not researched foreign pronunciation or elevated English. Lazy!
Listened to Jose Baez' book too. Trial interesting but the story is really this battle of egos. Generously displaying their flaws. This one better written but not more entertaining. At least this one is in the writer's own voice (give or take a little Pulitzer).
I loved this book. Jeff Ashton is as wonderful a narrator as he is a prosecutor. This is a wonderful story, easy to follow. After finishing this book I am even more so shocked and disappointed in those jurors. The evidence was there. I am baffled am truly believe the jurors on this case are without a doubt the dumbest and most idiotic 12 people on the face of the earth. Casey herself could have confessed and those 12 morons still would have let her walk. They are heartless. In this book it is evident that Jeff Ashton cared for Caylee and fought passionately to bring her murdering no good mother to justice.
