REASONABLE DOUBT book review by Staycia Y

Posted in Uncategorized on February 22, 2010 by bookerhs

“Mark Anthony creates outstanding characters that leave you on the edge of your seat.”

The movie I saw is called Reasonable Doubt  by Mark Anthony. The main characters are Katrina Easely, Snipes, Alexis, Warrant, Candace, and Chase and the parents of Katrina Easley.  Some of the reasons why I think people should read this book is because it shows you how people should be careful when it comes to who they pick in life. And the fast life is not what it is. Some times you have to choose what you want in life and don’t just go for the looks. This book has a great main character, violent scenes, and language I can relate to. Continue reading
