I think this story is interesting, however the narration is read at such a high speed that you have to really concentrate to understand what is going on. There are long pauses between chapters and a great deal of repetition. I'm afraid these drawbacks spoilt my enjoyment of what could have been a good read.

Anyone who followed the trial on Court TV or in the media, hoping for some earth shattering information won't find it here.
The book jumps all over the place and does not follow the trial the way it happened. It is hard to follow even if you are well versed in the case. One minute they are talking about the verdict being read and then in the same chapter about jury selection.
Listeners will not learn anything new about Peterson or the jury members that hasn't been previously reported in the media. Don't waste your money on this one.

This book could have been a fascinating look into the process of jury deliberation. However, it was a disjointed mash of "everyone having their say". The narrator was quite poor in her pronunciation of common english words which was actually a welcome distraction from her droning monotone. I counted more that a dozen errors. The premise of the book was quite good, and if you can get past the repetition of facts and quotes maybe you will find it interesting.
