I'm not going to deny that this book was well written and mostly interesting. But I wasn't captivated enough to say that I enjoyed reading it. It took me weeks to motivate myself to finish it. If you're into fictional stuff like this then by all means go ahead and read it, but it definitely wasn't for me.

This book is so interesting. Trevor Grove is on a jury in England, so some of the procedures are a little different than in America, but it was just fascinating to read about the process of deciding on a verdict.

A very readable and entertaining personal experience of serving on a jury, in which the author explores the merits of the jury system. Definitely recommended if you're interested in this topic.
