İlginç ve çekici, ama zaman zaman yavaş. Genel olarak, hoşuma gitti.
Better than the first but still not great.
This is John Grisham's first and only non-fiction book. It is about the injustice experienced by Ron Williamson who was wrongly convicted of murder and consequently spent 11 years on Oklahoma's death row before advances in DNA technology proved him innocent. This book highlights the flaws in America's death penalty laws. Grisham meticulously documents the harrowing and deplorable treatment experienced by death row inmates by cruel and sadistic prison guards. This book invoked a lot of anger and frustration towards the American state governments for still holding onto archaic and totally flawed capital punishment laws. The book lacked any fictional suspense due the significant amount of dedication in detailing all the facts surrounding the Ron Williamson case. Although it lacked the usual page-turning style of John Grisham's fictional books - it does highlight and bring to the forefront the age old debate and discussion about how the legal system can be defective and as a result deeming capital punishment as inept. If you liked Dead Man walking - this book is comparable and further highlights the plight of innocent people subjected to inhumane punishments. Like John Grishom, I am against the death penalty. I myself am passionate about seeing America following Australia's abolition of the death penalty which took place under the Death Penalty Abolition Act 1973.
