Analysis Of Defending Jacob By William Landay

Satisfactory Essays
The novel “Defending Jacob” by William Landay is a legal thriller which makes you want to keep reading. Even though the beginning chapters are a little slow, it picks up from there on. I realized that from the beginning I thought Jacob was innocent because he was a quiet kid who didn't show any signs of possibly murdering someone. Since Andy barber was jacob’s father it was hard for him to realize that his son was a murderer until after Hope's death. Also I think Andy thought that because of his father's past, it was occurring in Jacob. I think Andy knew that if Jacob was the murderer that would cost him his reputation as a successful assistant district attorney, so andy personally couldn't accept the possibility of his son being a murderer.
