Along the Rails: A Juror's Journey Reviews
As one of the prosecutors who tried the case I found the book offer a great insight about how juror's see a trial. As prosecutors we always wonder what they are thinking, what they hear or see that we miss, and how they go about the porcess of making in this case a life and death decision. This is as real as it gets in seeing a case from a jurors eyes.
This is a compelling courtroom story told not from the accused or legal viewpoint but that of the juror. There are rough spots along the way and the horror of the trial as it unfolds is evident and well depicted without being overly gorey. The personal thoughts and feelings of the author are what bring the story close to the heart which enables the reader to not only relate to the personal agony of the juror but also to understand the frustration of those friends and family members as they are 'gagged' right along with the juror every day throughout the trial.
Saw the documentary and was forced to purchase it. Great from a juror's standpoint.
The book was ok, but what really irritated me was the way the author left a cliffhanger constantly. "It was just about to get worse" "if we only knew what we had coming" And then suddenly it was over. And I was still waiting for that horrible turn that I was expecting. Well, it was interesting reading about the jurors and their side of the story. thats all.
A very soul and gut book. Having to live vicariously with and through the victims pain, had to be excruciating for the jurors. I do think the right decision was made.
I was living in Houston and my nephew went to school with Claudia Benton's daughters so the story touched me on a personal level as well as knowing the author! Well written and gripping story!
true story are the best enjoyed the reading kept my nose in the book. All should read this book. Very interesting
