Monster

Myers, Walter Dean

Monster

Genre: drama, crime

Sometimes I feel like I have walked into the middle of a movie. Maybe I can make my own movie. The film will be the story of my life. No, not my life, but of this experience. I'll call it what the lady who is the prosecutor called me.
MONSTER
FADE IN; INTERIOR COURT. A guard sits at a desk behind STEVE. KATHY O'BRIEN, STEVE's lawyer, is all business as she talks to STEVE.
  • O'BRIENLet me make sure you understand what's going on. Both you and this King character are on trial for felony murder. Felony murder is as serious as it gets .. When you're in court, you sit there and pay attention. You let the jury know that you think the case is as serious as they do.
  • STEVE You think we're going to win?
  • O'BRIEN (seriously) It probably depends on what you mean by "win".

The book "Monster" was amazing it shows the point of view for a man on trail. It shows that the say "Everyone is innocent until proven guilty" is wrong ; It should be " Everyone is guilty until proven innocent". If you are sitting in a courtroom on trail for murder the jury will consider you as a "Monster". Its a very well written book.
