it was amazing

Recommended for: Anyone looking for a good but also somewhat funny story

Twelve Angry Men is a classic one setting book that sucks you into the book even though its just twelve men going back and forth over whether someone is guilty of murder or not. I was looking for books on amazon. I was slacking on an Alex Rider book so i dropped it and had to pick up a different book. I found Twelve Angry Men. My mom said it was supposed to be a great book so I bought it. And I must say, it was amazing. What made it so great was the pinpoint details made by the jurors that made you question if the man was guilty or not. It seemed obvious at first that he was guilty, yet one man was able to show every possible detail that could be questioned and made this case so debatable. Building off that, the dialogue and emotion was so real. People getting frustrated, people giving up, people trying to calm others down. It was so realistic and it brought the dialogue to life. One thing that could've been better though was the end. It felt like in the very very end, it was just rushed. Like yeah, we all agree, okay, bye. I thought it was a good book overall. But like the ending would've been better with more sensation to the very end. Yet this is still a 5 star book. Looking forward I want to read more plays because I like how in plays, you can really picture what's going on and everything is so much more real because people have actually acted this out.
