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 was ultimately found not guilty of criminal charges. The victims' families brought civil cases against Simpson, and 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 his confession, and has worked hard to ensure that the public will read this book and learn the truth. This is the original manuscript approved by O.J. Simpson, with up to 14,000 words of key additional commentary.--From publisher's description.… (lisätietoja)

    BookshelfMonstrosity: The journalistic Run of His Life objectively discusses the O. J. Simpson murder trail and the disturbing If I Did It discusses the same case in Simpson's own words. Perhaps the truth of the case lies somewhere in between.

Having already read William Dear’s alternate theory of who killed Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman, this book popped up on the Bookbub list. The twentieth anniversary has spawned countless OJ Simpson true crime books, articles and television programs. As I mentioned before, I was not in the country when all this occurred so I am not completely burned out on the topic. And I was very curious about this book.

Absolutely no disrespect to Fred Goldman and their family but he writes a forward to the dictation done by OJ with his ghostwriter. I can’t even call it a forward. It is an angry, infuriated, grief saturated tirade. It is understandable. It is tragic. It may have been cathartic. But it the beginning of a he said-he said book. The viewpoints represented are both highly personal and highly biased. This is not a dispassionate review of what may or may not have occurred.

The OJ portion is just ridiculous. There is not much reading between the lines required except to acknowledge that OJ Simpson is a deeply narcissistic man who, at 35, dumped his first family to take up with an eighteen year old waitress who wasn’t even born when his career began.

He continually tries to lay the blame at Nicole Brown’s feet for everything that happened. She was violent, she was immature, she was on drugs, she was cheating on him, and she was unstable. All of these same traits can also be ascribed to OJ himself who should have known from the beginning that he had nothing in common with a teenager half his age. In truth, the thing he hammers on over and over was that they continually turned back to one another for sex. Sex of convenience mostly.

When he gets done laying the blame at her feet, the description of the crime itself, mirrors the crime. A short, violent description of an altercation that probably lasted 15-20 minutes in total. He infers someone else was there and I think William Dear’s book is a pretty good indicator that OJ was with his oldest son Jason.

For all the mud slung at Ron Goldman by opposing attorneys and OJ himself this book is clear on one thing: Ron Goldman was simply at the wrong place at the wrong time. He was dropping off some sunglasses and by OJ’s description, he simply tried to stand between OJ and Nicole and was overtaken by two more powerful men and killed.

OJ’s part of the book ends there. An epilogue essay is provided by Dominick Dunne, a writer and victim advocate who befriended the Goldman’s and understands celebrity crime. It is scathing of OJ and the process.

I really bought the book for one reason: I wanted the money I spent (a pittance at that) to go to the fund that the Goldman family established. Although OJ says this is a hypothetical account of what occurred, I think it sounds pretty close to what happened that night.

These two people kept coming in and out of each other’s lives and it was a car crash every time. In relationships like this, there seem to be a lot of casualties outside of the two people involved. That was certainly the case here. It will probably take generations to put some of it behind those families and even then, maybe never.

The book is not that good, the anger and grief is palpable and OJ does not come off well even by his own account. One star but maybe buying it for the Goldman Trust is enough incentive. ( )

I don't even know what to say about this book.

It was never really on my radar, but when a non-reading friend of mine wanted to read it, I figured it be fun to buddy read. However, it was torture.

A lot of people say this is the confession of OJ, or a hypothetical "how to murder" novel in which he reveals gritty details that only the killer would know. Neither of these are true. If I Did It is simply OJ mocking the world and laughing at us for so hungrily snatching up his poorly written words.

This whole book is him creating an alternate reality where he is the "real victim." It is disgusting. And "The Night in Question" (as he so aptly names chapter 6), can be boiled down to two sentiments he writes: "this is strictly hypothetical" and "black-out rage." Add in his imaginary friend Charlie and OJ probably thought he'd be skipping all the way to the bank. Thankfully, the Goldman's intervened and prevented this from happening. That may be the only silver lining about this whole book. ( )

About the only thing that I can say about this book is that its like watching a train wreck!!! No matter how much you want to turn away, you can't. This book is a disgusting, detailed account of a murder by the murderer. I watched the trial on television, and during it, I knew that he was guilty. The only thing that the book did was answer some of my questions. Its such a shame that he was acquitted of the murders, and even if he came right out and said I did it (which he did with this book) it wouldn't matter since he can't be tried again. I still have one question about the whole situation, who helped him? If you are like me and like the morbid side of crime, this is a great book for you. I will say that if you weren't old enough to remember this case or watch it on television, it won't be as interesting for you. ( )
