Am glad I finally picked this up, its been a long time since I read a courtroom drama and this is a very good version of that.

This entire story is told from the perspective of Andy Barber who is the DA's Assistant and whose 14 year old's son is accused of murder.

I thought this was a great concept, seeing the trial play out through the eyes of a prosecutor, the father of the accused was frustrating and unreliable but also compelling.

This took me a while to get through, not because it isn‘t good (it‘s excellent) but because I saw the series soon after it came out. Thank you, Chris Evans! 😛 Knowing what it was all about, I didn‘t feel the need to rush through it. There were some differences, but the adaptation was pretty close to the book. The big twist is truly awesome and one I don‘t think anyone could see coming!

1. My job is going to be changing. My little team of 3 is growing by one more! 🎉 I am a part time licensed real estate operations manager - read “admin” - so one more team member to support means more work. I‘m excited, but things are going to change. Might not be so part time anymore, and I don‘t know what that will mean for my family/kids.

2. My health and my supportive hubby!

So, because I didn‘t finish this for 2020 (I only got 50 pages in), I started it over again yesterday so that it‘ll be book 1 of 2021. I‘m 300 pages in, I‘m enthralled, and I can ABSOLUTELY see Chris Evans being amazing as Andy. (Of course, I love him always, but Andy is simultaneously right in his wheelhouse and also against type and I love a good divergence. Can‘t wait to finish the book so I can watch the series!) #defendingjacob #williamlanday

*Hot Male Lead Edition*

I haven't read any of the books so I don't know how close they are to the source material, but The Witcher & Poldark were good. My guy just signed up for an Apple TV trial so I can watch Chris Evans.

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick @thebluestocking I tied to pick ones that weren't used but once I saw Evans & Cavill, the theme chose itself. 🤣 2y

This book was an absolute roller coaster, and written in a very gripping manner. A really compelling read. The Apple Original limited TV series on the other hand was not at all as great as the book. Again, the audio book narration did justice to the book.

So this had popped up on my radar a few years, but only recently piqued my interest. Because, Chris Evans 😁 obviously I can‘t start a series before I read the book. I found myself grappling until the very end - did he or didn‘t he? When a book can do that, and still give you doubts then it‘s a good book. Chris Evans doesn‘t hurt either. I actually found myself reading it in his voice, which I loved.

Chris Evans 🤤

I almost stopped reading this one. But it is beloved by people whose bookish opinions I usually mesh with, and also Chris Evans. (Damn you, Chris Evans!) The ending was unbelievable. (As in, Wow, I don't believe that for a second. Not as in, Wow! Unbelievable!) I felt like Landay was trying to dig deep into the psychology of our lead, except none of that rang true either. The characters were two-dimensional.

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego That's too bad. Have you seen the show? If so how does it compare? 3y

I heard about the mini series, decided to read the book first. The choice to write in the POV of the father of 14 year old Jacob, accused of murder was a great choice. I liked the style of giving us the courtroom transcript in a different font with no explanations a great device. Makes you wonder what it‘s like to be related to evil people. Looking forward to the mini series

Amoon So far, the mini series is ok, not great. I heard that they changed the ending, so I‘m expecting to be disappointed 3y
Amoon Jumping ship on the mini series. Chris Evans is pretty one note as the father, the kid who plays Jacob is not great and I read that they changed the ending (which I loved on the book). Will check out “Shirley” on Hulu instead (edited) 3y

Y‘all...I‘m trying SO HARD with this book. I really want to know who the murderer is! But damn...there is A LOT of this kind of thing going on. The girl he‘s talking about (and his son btw) are in 8TH GRADE. Every woman in this book has descriptors like this. His wife‘s breasts are “defeated by age.” The arraignment judge is a super attractive Latina he calls “Lard-Ass.” Is finishing the book worth it??

⭐️⭐️⭐️ ½ • I read to compare to the Apple TV+ series. Overall I liked the story but I HATED Andy. His internal dialog says mean & irrelevant things about women‘s bodies when he describes them. Describing a female middle schooler: “She was not fat, but she was not thin enough for the tight t-shirt she wore.” Many other examples. Are these judgements the character or the author talking? Either way, I don‘t like it. The white male gaze is exhausting.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This book is very well written. There are surprises throughout that keep the reader on the edge of their seat. The book honestly leaves so much up to interpretation, as though the readers are the real jury. I really enjoyed this book, but had to downgrade it for language (numerous f-bombs) and a few subtle agendas with which I don‘t agree. It‘s still a good book overall and I would recommend it with those warnings.

Anyone else watching Defending Jacob on Apple TV? You can watch it for free but you do need an Apple ID, which warning was a pain in the butt without having any Apple devices or iTunes acct, but eventually figured out.

This was as interesting, complicated story. Being a parent of a 14 year old boy (like Jacob) I could see how both parents could have reacted the way they did throughout. I honestly don‘t know what I would do given the same situations. I can also say that I did not see the ending coming. Overall a really thought provoking and page turning book. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

My first finish for the #readathon. I almost bailed on this book as the beginning seemed to be a rendering of Presumed Innocent by Scott Turow. I am glad that I persevered, it eventually found its feet and it‘s own identity. It is more than just the story of a murder, but it is the story of family, of relationships, of impressions and gut instincts. It was engaging and suspenseful to the end.

Of course I‘m looking up book/tv news instead of working...sigh. Anyways...LOVED THIS BOOK when I read it back in 2012, problem is I don‘t think I remember what happened, but love that it‘s getting the limited series treatment as opposed to film treatment. Greater room for development and the cast and preview are all excellent. I don‘t have Apple + Tv. How much is that a month? There are a lot of shows I want to watch on there.

EKonrad It‘s $4.99 a month I believe. I love a lot of the shows on there. 👍🏼 3y
