Just finished the Jodi Arias book.  I knew a lot about the crime but this really filled in the story for me. I recommend it to all.

I just don't know if I can read about her I just had such a hard time setting through the trial on TV she is just awful. Maybe a year from now but it is to soon for me. This was a new one for me I have never had such trouble following a case before,

I had seen her on TV but I didn't know how they met and also I had read he was some kind of speaker and I wondered how he got that gig..etc..etc  This book explains it all in detail.  She's a nut job and unfortunately, he made the mistake of encouraging her sexual behavior. towards him.

I just couldn't believe how she had to go into such detail about there sex life and who tapes there calls listening to those were sick knowing she had probably planned to use them in some way against him ??? She was a stalker and even in death she wanted to ruin his character , I also think all the sex  talk sexualized her to the males on the jury and that's why we got no verdict after the trial. It was just so obvious what she was doing I just felt awful for his family,  I;m sure I will read it eventually ,

She is awful but she was his sexual secret that he kept under wraps because of his religion.  He had a terrible childhood and he really rose up from that to be successful.  Being Mormon helped him financially but in the end I think it played a part in his death. He wanted to be an upstanding figure in his religion and the rules made it too hard for him.  I feel sorry for his family having to listen to her story.

Yeah being Mormon is tough I was a practicing member but I left the Church . It is a hard religion to follow in todays world ,Not saying it is bad it is just rigid,
