Summary

From the outside, the prosecution's case looked bulletproof, but Marcia Clark knew better. Mountains of physical evidence connected O. J. Simpson to the murders of Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman, but that didn't mean it would be easy. For the woman charged with prosecuting the "Trial of the Century", the light of fame would glow white hot, as the media scrutinized her strategy, her family, even her hair. As the case spun out of control, Marcia Clark stood tall - a single mother fighting an army of overpaid attorneys and a judge who let the media coverage go to his head. Now she tells her story.
The bloody glove, the botched evidence collection, the LAPD's war with the black community of Los Angeles - Marcia Clark understands every moment of the O. J. Simpson trial like no one else. In this gripping account of her life, her career, and the trial that made her a legend, Clark shows what it truly means to fight for justice.

She had conviction...

Any additional comments?

I came here after being one of the many millennials to experience the trial of O.J. Simpson for the first time through the FX mini-series; American Crime Story: The People vs O.J. Simpson. My reasoning for choosing this book is because of the way in which Marcia Clark was portrayed and treated in the show, I wanted to learn more about her and her story, what better way to do so than to experience her book read aloud in her own voice.This book was an excellent memoir detailing the trials and tribulations (quite literally) of Marcia's life, both during the O.J. circus and in her life leading up to it. That being said, this book is not entirely what I was expecting. I came to this book with the idea that it would be a scathing, 10 chapter rant about the so called 'Dream Team', the media, Judge Ito and the jury, although there were aspects of my assumptions present in her work, Marcia chose to talk openly about how the trial effected her emotionally and physically, personally and professionally. Far from the stone cold bitch she appears when on a roll in the courtroom, Marcia showed herself to be a warm and humble person, a feat that must have been incredibly difficult coming off a time where every aspect of her appearance, personality and behaviour was scrutinised on every news stand across the USA.If you're old enough to remember watching the trial, prepare to relive the experience through the eyes of one of the key players. If, like myself, you're a millennial coming from The People vs O.J, prepare to experience a deeper and unrestricted insight to the backstage happenings of the trial. If you're one of the people who was sceptical or judgmental of any aspect of Marcia Clark, prepare to feel a pang of guilt at your young, uninformed and misguided views.

Shame it is not the full version...

This is an abridged version and doesn't explore the full facts relating to the case. An interesting point of view though.

Absolutely Riveting

I loved it!

It was absolutely riveting and I really appreciated hearing directly from Marcia as she reflected back on her feelings and experiences during that difficult time.

I enjoyed her candour and her no-holds-barred blunt options; she doesn’t pull any punches! (nothing nice to say about Judge Lance Ito… Yikes!!!)

I was so absorbed by the “behind the scenes” machinations, it made me want to read a version told by someone on the Dream Team to see how their brains work. Being in the “he did it camp” myself, I can completely sympathize with the prosecution’s case and can’t imagine their devastation upon losing… but what drove the defence? Money? I find it impossible to imagine that they really thought he was innocent.

What a complicated mess!
