I would, I had heard of the story beforehand, and Rosen goes into great depth in tracing the events around the murder.
I think one of my favorite scenes was when the author realized the difference the audio in home movie could make, and how one of the attorneys reacted to the authors decision to share the audio.
Hard to listen to
The narrator. It was a fascinating story, but just having to listen to the bad film noir attempt at narration made it almost impossible to finish the book.
Probably not. I would recommend to READ the book as opposed to listen.
Tried to hard to be edgy. Bad Film Noir attempt. Very difficult to listen to.
Nope. He covered all there is to cover.
Don't listen to if you're tired.
