Anyway, in my opinion, this book is the worst book I have ever read.
The author gives you information that doesn't pertain to the story. He/she talks about the weather, his cat, etc. The case is frequently compared to the Oscar Pistorious case because the authors think the cases are very similar. Not really. They also spend way too much time on the Mormon history and other religions which is unnecessary because we only need or already know the basics of Travis breaking the Mormon rules regarding sex. The authors kind of trash Travis. It's fine to point out his not so great character faults, but not to the extent they did. They even say that Travis isn't as good or great looking as everyone makes him out to be!
The facts they give you are fine, but telling the reader exactly what happened while Travis is being killed and what he is saying and what Jodi is saying and thinking during and after the murder is ludicrous! No one knows this! They continually say WTF a lot.
I regret paying for it. Even if it was free, I would not recommend this book at all.
I really enjoyed the book. I thought it was well written, and I loved the fact that I could click on the links throughout it and be brought to things like interrogation videos, testimony, pictures...it was all right there for you as you read. I liked how the timeline was laid out so that even someone who isn't as familiar with all of the details as I am would be able to follow along easily as it all unfolded.
I was familiar (meaning I knew what happened, and I would read headlines and news bits about it) with the Oscar Pistorius trial, but didn't follow it regularly, and this book linked and compared some of the circumstances between that trial and the Jo... (I don't want to say her name)...the Travis Alexander trial (which I have followed very closely since the beginning).
On one hand, I didn't necessarily need the Oscar trial info (only because that wasn't my reason for purchasing the book) but on the other hand, it gave me some more detail and insight into his trial since I didn't follow it the way that I have with the Travis Alexander death trial.
I will say that there were certain parts of the book that I either didn't agree with, or thought went on a little bit (but if I wanted a book that I agreed with 100%, I should have written my own, right?).
This book included all of the gory details and was also sprinkled with some sass and witty comments.
I would recommend it and would also read the next one.
