A WILDERNESS OF ERROR The Trials of Jeffrey MacDonald

by | Read by John Pruden

Contemporary Culture • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Filmmaker Errol Morris presents a compelling, if lengthy, challenge of the case against Dr. Jeffrey MacDonald, who was convicted of killing his wife and children in 1970 at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Morris is is as convincing about MacDonald's innocence as Joe McGinniss is of MacDonald's guilt in his book, FATAL VISION. The notorious murders have been made into movies and a television series and have generated countless articles. Narrator John Pruden is an evenhanded performer who solemnly delivers the text without much emotion. His delivery style, combined with the dry verbatim courtroom testimony, makes for some tedious moments. As compelling as the story is, it may better enjoyed in its printed format, which would allow readers to flip pages and double-check facts.
