My lame review from BookCrossing: So I had every intention of writing a brilliant and insightful book review on this book. However, it was book #70 of 2007, and I'm now on book #58 of 2008, and frankly it's not going to happen.

I will say this -- it was fascinating, and I think I appreciated it more after my book club read the famous In Cold Blood. I remember that it was riveting, and I didn't want to put it down. The jury selection, in particular, was fascinating, and kept me on the edge of my seat. Ever since I read this book, I've been trying to decide if I want to watch the movie or not. The book was so good, I don't really want to taint it, but it was also intriguing enough that I think the movie will be interesting. Who knows?
