Truly a remarkable young man

If you could sum up Honor Bound in three words, what would they be?

Honor, patience and faith

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

I thought I was pretty well versed on this case before I read this book but I was still surprised by a few facts in this memoir.

Giulia Bongiorno maybe my new personal hero. Judge Hellman is up there also.

Have you listened to any of Seth Numrich’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was my first audiobook read by Seth Numrich and I enjoyed his pace and voice, I would listen to him again.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I think the title of the book says it all - Honor bound.

Any additional comments?

Fast paced and straight forward. It was compelling to see Raphaelle's point of view, largely viewed as merely pawn in this tragic series of events; he is brutally honest and doesn't always paint himself in the best light but is unwavering in his pursuit to do the right thing. All for a girl he had known for barely more than a week.

This book also details the immense cost this trial took on his family which was touching, I particularly felt for his sister. Their father should be proud of having raised such upstanding children.

I was always amazed at how easily he could have chosen to save or at least help himself but stuck to the truth. He possesses qualities that are increasingly rare in this day and age.

Enjoyed immensely!
