Twelve Angry Men was a confusing book in my mind. The play was written differently than many others but once I understood how it worked, I loved how these characters fought about everything. There were Twelve Jurors and each of them had a different opinion on the case. After many days of a court proceeding, they were deciding if a boy killed his father. There was much evidence towards guilty but Juror 8 was more of a protagonist and defended this boy. He thought there was a reasonable doubt.

I loved how this book took into consideration how these Jurors would think. I never understood what happened after a trial and this book helped me understand how a specific jury thought. I recommend this book because it tells more about law then you would already know, unless you are a lawyer, and it tells you more about reasonable doubt.
