Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

With an audacity that vilifies O.J. Simpson more than any other author could, Simpson himself provides a fictional tell-all account of the murders of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown. Simpson seems to be more concerned about how the press poorly portrayed the facts—not about his murderous acts but of his personal life and relationship with Nicole. When he's not lamenting about how he is misunderstood, he's playing arm-chair therapist for Nicole (claiming she was involved with drugs, constantly erratic and still hopelessly longing for him). Simpson insists it was Nicole's actions that ultimately forced him to murder her. With an exclusive commentary read by Kim Goldman (Ron Goldman's sister), an account of writing the book with Simpson by ghostwriter Pablo F. Fenjves and an afterword by Dominick Dunne, listeners get an interesting balancing act of interests and motives for the publication of this story. G. Valmont Thomas eerily embraces Simpson's sound and speech patterns, making the audiobook more disturbing than the book. Hearing Simpson's words at his most enraged, listeners will be impressed and possibly frightened with how well Thomas delivers this first-person narrative. A Beaufort Books hardcover. (Nov.)

Review

“It’s as if Simpson is sitting across from the reader laying out his side of the story, one-on-one, no reporters or gossip columnists or Court TV vultures sticking in their beaks.”

(Vanity Fair)

“A confession? Judge for yourself. My feeling? You bet it is. The case is now officially closed. This appalling but mesmerizing book does it"

(The Buffalo News)

"I [ghostwriter (see below) Pablo Fenjves] kept asking myself why he [O.J. Simpson] had agreed to write this crazy book, and I could only come up with three reasons: One, he needed the money. Two, he missed the attention. And three, he genuinely wanted to confess. I was hoping for number three, of course, but there was one other nagging possibility: The whole thing was a con."

The above is found in the prologue of this intriguing book.

Before I mention anything else, I should state how this book came to be released. The original book or manuscript was written by O.J. Simpson (with Pablo Fenjves being the ghostwriter). It was originally to be published under Simpson's name. However, it was determined that Simpson would profit from these murders so a bankruptcy court awarded the rights of the book to the Goldman family in Aug. 2007. (Ron Goldman was found murdered along with Simpson's wife, Nicole Brown, in June 1994). It was the Goldman family who had this book released under a different publisher.

This now expanded book has five sections:

(1) "He did it" by the Goldman family (copyright 2007)
(2) Prologue (to this expanded book) by Pablo Fenjves (written Aug. 2007)
(3) The exact replication of the original "If I Did It" manuscript written by O.J. Simpson with Pablo Fenjves being the manuscript's ghostwriter (written in 2006)
(4) After Word by celebrity author Dominick Dunne (written Aug. 2007)
(5) Resource list for victims of crime

Personally, I read the third section (the Simpson section) first so as not to be biased by what was said in sections one and two. This section is fascinating.

I would highly recommend this book for anyone who loves true crime, law or anything along those lines. Plus, a portion of the money is getting donated to charity! The best word to describe this book is chilling, it literally gave me goosebumps, it was so good. I have a one year old and I literally had this story finsihed in two days, it was a phenomenal read, remarkably written

By far the best book Ive ever read. A must read, I never thought he was guilty after all he was found not guilty at trial. I couldnt put it down, the only negative was that the whole book focuses on his rocky relationship with Nicole and only one chapter is his "confession" as the ghostwriter calls it. Plus the writer of this book and the family makes this a very bias approach, but you get it right from the horses mouth is what I love most.
