This assignment calls for a 3- to 5-page book review on Bryan Stevenson’s Just Mercy. More specifically, be sure to consider the following, especially in your pre-writing:
– What did you like/dislike/find intriguing about the book’s portrayal of one or more of the following themes: the U.S. criminal justice system, the U.S. prison system, mental health treatment, poverty, homelessness, post-traumatic stress syndrome, childhood sentencing, legal representation for the poor, antiquated laws, disproportionate numbers of men of color in prisons, and/or other relevant themes?
– Do your thoughts on these themes affect your recommendation? Choose one of these issues above; that subject matter will be the focus of your review.
– How did Just Mercy either change or reinforce your ideas about (insert your chosen topic here)?
Depending on your chosen topic(s), choose a magazine, journal, blog, website, social media platform/thread, or other medium as a potential publication venue and audience for your review. Your professor may need to approve the publication. Make sure you identify the audience and the purpose of this publication in some way early on in your essay.
In short, you will write a 3-5 page analytical book review for your publication of choice addressing Stevenson’s handling of this issue and why readers should, or shouldn’t, read this book based on its potential contributions to society, its handling – or mishandling – of said topics, and its overall readability as well as your personal insights and analysis on the book. It should end with a recommendation to the particular audience based on the subject matter chosen.
