This wasn't what I expected, thought it would be written like a novel, instead was more of a narrative of stories.
Not expecting a narrative history lesson but a story a novel. Topic is important and compelling.
A remarkable story - actually stories. So grateful for Mr. Stevenson's dedication and tireless work to help so many people whose voices would have never been heard. I can't stop thinking about the people in these stories and wondering where they are now. I was very moved - and want to do something more than just listen to these stories. Thank you Mr. Stevenson!
love this book, living in Alabama I had no idea this was even going on so it's so cool to get this history in a book version that also tells small stories
Exceptional and an absolute MUST READ
As a freshman English teacher who has taught To Kill a Mockingbird for years, the stories told by Bryan Stevenson, his clients, and the American judicial system finally gave me the voice of Tom Robinson. The hope Tom lost has been found in the pages of this heartbreaking and uplifting book. Thank you for this book.
Carol. G. This book is so well written and articulates our legal system that is captivating! Bryan Stevenson is an incredible author and I can't wait to hear or read what he does next! This book just inspires me to be merciful, forgiving, non-judgmental, and loving of all my neighbors. Thank you Bryan Stevenson and God bless you for your work at EJI!!!!
A beautiful book that gives me hope for this country that is so troubled. The hope- there are people like Bryan Stevenson working for justice with compassion and love for the most vulnerable members of our communities. What an inspiration!
Very interesting read on the death penalty.
Very eye opening and powerful book. Forever changes the way I view the Justice system and how it's not designed to be just and fair but unjust and unfavorable to those most vulnerable. Hats off to Bryan Stevenson for his life long commitment to Justice.
