Publisher's Summary

On the day before his 21st wedding anniversary, David Sullinger buried an ax in his wife's skull. Now, eight jurors must retire to the deliberation room and decide whether David committed premeditated murder - or whether he was a battered spouse who killed his wife in self-defense.

Told from the perspective of over a dozen participants in a murder trial, We, the Jury examines how public perception can mask the ghastliest nightmares. As the jurors stagger toward a verdict, they must sift through contradictory testimony from the Sullinger's children, who disagree on which parent was Satan; sort out conflicting allegations of severe physical abuse, adultery, and incest; and overcome personal animosities and biases that threaten a fair and just verdict.

Ultimately, the central figures in We, the Jury must navigate the blurred boundaries between bias and objectivity, fiction and truth.

Struggled to listen

If you enjoy hearing from every single point of view during a trial then this could be for you. Driving while listening to this almost put me to sleep when listening to some of the dry point of views like the court reporter.

Anticlimactic

I enjoyed the book and the different characters but it lacked a true finish. I found myself disappointed with the lack of true conclusion.

Heartfelt performance of a thought-provoking work

I will sorely miss the vibrant characters on this jury duty of humanity and psychology.

Disjointed and not engaging

I didn’t enjoy this story at all. I felt like I was just listening to the mundane stories/personalities of various everyday people who happened to be part of a jury. I didn’t find it at all suspenseful, or feel any investment in whether the character David was found guilty or not guilty. If I had been reading it as a paperback, I wouldn’t have bothered to finish it.

Different in a really good way.

I love legal thrillers and I really enjoyed this one. The prospectives from which it was written really make it stand out and it won’t be one of those books I listen to, forget about and when I see it again later have to pop over to good reads to see weather or not I’ve already read it. My only complaint is that I feel like it could have gone on a bit longer. I wasn’t ready for it to be over and felt that there could have been a lot more story to tell. It’s pretty short.

I love full-cast productions and this one is fun!

Simple story, fun characters, nothing stressful. If you are looking for techno-story this IS NOT it. But it is EZ listening and worth the time and energy.

A great story!

I loved the characters in this book, they were strong and relatable. I wanted the story to continue but it ended not how I expected!
