Book Beginning (Chapter One):
The trial was irretrievably over; everything that could be said had been said, but he had never doubted that he would lose.
I know, I know -- I'm the last person ever to read this book...The good news is despite it's popularity, I know basically zero about the story. As far as the beginning, I'm not sure what to think. Maybe whoever this 'he' is, should have done a better job at the trial. Maybe it was pointless to do well. We shall see.
