Twelve Angry Men by Reginald Rose

5 stars

What an interesting character study!

Twelve men are looking at the evidence-- trying to come to a decision.  Only one thinks the boy is innocent... or that he at least might be.

A fascinating look at group mentalities, individualism, and the indefinable "reasonable doubt".

So glad I saw Suey's (It's All About Books) review of Twelve Angry Men because I don't think I'd have ever picked it up otherwise!

Definitely recommended (and it's a super quick read).
