Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony - Jeff Ashton

So this book right here, I remember way way way back when myspace was all the rage, back then the Casey Anthony case came out. For some reason I think it sparked a chord in me. At the time I was always out clubbing but she was a mother of a beautiful child and at the time I was like if I had a child as beautiful as her's I would knock clubbing on the head for life. How could someone who has a family like hers and a beautiful child such as caylee, do such a terrible thing? Yes, I really think she did it, to this day I'm still 100% and more she killed Caylee so she could live the "Bella vita life" Back then, this case angered me, she had no...No emotions at all for that little girl. When she was given her first phone call she was more interested in calling her ex at the time than even wondering where her little angel was. Even typing this I get pure rage! I can't believe they let her go free how was it even possible they did that?? Anyway, my emotions aside Jeff Ashton, who was the defence for Caylee, wanted always justice for Caylee and in this book he writes Blow by blow how he tried to get that. How the anythonys Cindy and George foolishly tried to stop that too. If you was like me and engulfed with rage, but didn't get the full story of this case from the News I highly recommend it and Casey Anthony I hope one day you are retrialed in the count for the killing of your innocent daughter and given what you should of had the death sentence.

Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony - Jeff Ashton
I have no idea how Mr. Ashton found the courage to write about this case. It must have shattered his heart. That being said, there is very little in this book that I didn't already know.
 
i followed the trial gavel to gavel.  i will never, ever forget it.  Mr. Ashton and his colleagues may not have achieved their goal, but they are still HEROES.  As for Baez et al, and their "victory celebration"...well, karma is a boomerang, and she's gonna get you.  Get to steppin'!

Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony
Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony - Jeff Ashton,Lisa Pulitzer I have followed this case from the very beginning and really enjoyed getting the inside story from the prosecution.I give Jeff Ashton and his team credit for trying to bring justice to Caylee even knowing full well that their case was based purely on circumstantial evidence. It's a shame that they did not have anything concrete.That being said, I also agree that a measure of common sense was needed on the jury's end. In my opinion, it was just too many "coincidences". I'd be lying if I said that I was not disappointed with the verdict.I would like to read Jose Baez's version of the trial and events that unfolded, especially after how he was portrayed in this book (which I gotta admit was exactly how I percieved him during his press conferences). It's scary that Casey ended up with Baez, considering how similar they appear in their conscience and morality.

Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony
Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony - Jeff Ashton I have mixed feelings about this book. It’s not that I didn’t enjoy it, I did. BUT, if you followed the trial like I did which was not missing a second, watching all of the replays, etc on HLN and anywhere else I could find them, then you really didn’t learn anything from listening to the book.

I thought it would have more behind the scenes dirt. It had some, but not a whole lot. IF you never paid any attention to what was going on with the trial and never saw anything on the news then you will learn a great deal from this book.

That being said I will tell you what I enjoyed….

Lost Worlds
Lost Worlds - Clark Ashton Smith,Jeff VanderMeer CAS probably has the richest, most lush prose of any other author of modern fantasy. Sometimes, you feel that his stories are lacking in plot and well rounded characters but that can generally be forgiven if you are willing to slow down your pace of reading and really savour the quality of the prose, much like fine wine.

To give you a flavour, here is the opening paragraph to "The Demon of the Flower":
Not as the plants and flowers of Earth, growing peacefully beneath a simple sun, were the blossoms of the planet Lophai. Coiling and uncoiling in double dawns; tossing tumultuously under vast suns of jade green and balas-ruby orange; swaying and weltering in rich twilights, in aurora-curtained nights, they resembled fields of rooted serpents that dance eternally to an other-worldly music.


That's not to say that all the stories are lacking in plot and interesting characters. But it is only fair to warn the potential reader that some of the stories contained in this collection are definitely pure prose.

Thematically, these are a broad range of tales of the fantastic, often quite dark, some bordering on horror. Some are even in the realms of SF but CAS seems to lack any concern for scientific plausibility.
