Publisher's Summary

In 1994, Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson were brutally murdered at her home in Brentwood, California. O. J. Simpson was tried for the crime in a case that captured the attention of the American people, but he was ultimately found not guilty of criminal charges. The victims' families brought civil cases against Simpson, in which he was found liable for willfully and wrongfully causing the deaths of Ron and Nicole by committing battery with malice and oppression. In 2006, HarperCollins announced the publication of a book in which O. J. Simpson told how he hypothetically would have committed the murders. In response to public outrage that Simpson stood to profit from these crimes, HarperCollins canceled the book. A Florida bankruptcy court awarded the rights to the Goldmans in August 2007 to partially satisfy the unpaid civil judgment, which has risen, with interest, to over $38 million.
The Goldman family views this book as Simpson's confession, and has worked hard to ensure that the public will read or listen to this book and learn the truth. This audiobook was produced from the original manuscript approved by O. J. Simpson, with additional insight from the Goldman Family, Pablo F. Fenjves, and Dominick Dunne.

Intriguing and baffling

This book is baffling in so many ways.

Either OJ Simpson:

1- is stupid
2- thinks we are stupid and gullable
3- is cocky and did this purely for the money.

I say this because the entire book is a recollection by OJ of his relationship between him and Nicole. Of course it has a slight lean in OJs favour, so that he looks like an all round nice guy, but you can tell by all the tiny details that he has written this from recollection of his own memories and well documented events.

And then you get to the 'murder chapter'. This is the only chapter where OJ talks about a hyperthetical situation (the murder of Nicole) and yet he tells the lead up to it and aftermath with such precision and with such detail that it makes you believe it is the truest account of what really happened that night, that we are likely to get. He does however, become very vague about the actual killing and describes it as he 'came out of a daze and didnt understand where he was'.

After this chapter it switches back to 'real life again'.

The interesring thing about this book is that it provided detail from a different perspective. Not that of the media or the prosecution, but of OJ.

The narration was fantastic and really made it feel like OJ was telling his story.

Probably one of the most bizarre books I've ever read/listened to. The whole way up until the point where he discribes the murders, he paints the portrait of an innocent man. Making himself out to be a loving, caring, patient husband, and making Nicole out to be the erratic, violent one. He then describes how he carried out the murders, reminding the listener that this chapter is "hypothetical". Then he goes back to claiming he had no idea about the murders and would never have done such a thing. I don't think anyone will ever be able to understand how this man's mind works and why he chooses to act the way he does.
This is a thoroughly interesting book to listen to, I must admit that he even has you fooled at times, but then you remember all the evidence and that an innocent person would never write something like this!
