I enjoyed this book just as much as Reclaiming History. I am always skeptical of those who condemn a jury verdict without hearing all of the evidence. Bugliosi puts forth convincing reasons that justice was not served in this case. He convinced me. I would recommend this book without reservation.
I really liked the narrator because he read with such passion about the subject matter. You forget that he is the narrator and not the actual author. I also loved all of the behind the scenes information that was never told to the jury or to the public. And why not?
It kept my interest, expecially on a long drive to Las Vegas. I didn't want to miss a word. Understanding everything that happened in this case from this book was eye opening.
Their was no one character, but I really enjoyed his performance.
What went wrong!
This book was exactly what I was hoping it would be. It explains the evidence in this case, and does a great job explaining why the outcome came out the way it did.
Vincent Bugliosi really lets loose is his thoughtful insightful way. The book moves along at a brisk pace, which totally suits the material.
Joseph Campenella seamed the perfect narrator for this book... although his voice kept bringing me back to memories of his `Science International` TV spots from the 70s.
I really enjoy reading books by Vincent Bugliosi since years ago when he wrote Helter Skelter. I looked forward to this book. The book is good and full of information.
I have read Trial of the Century (1996), by author Frank Schmalleger right after the trial finished. Recently I wanted to read more and I knew that Vincent Bugliosi was a great prosecutor here in So. California where I live.
I really like his review of the case and his opinion of how he would have tried the case. This book, Outrage, outlines how the case could have been won.
HORRIBLE. His tone of voice was not as good as other narrators I have heard. But my biggest complaint is that he speaks too fast. This is a book with a lot of facts. When a reader reads like he is in a race it is awfully hard for the listener to assimilate the facts coming at us. I had to continually pause the audiobook, click on BACK, then Replay in order to listen again, then Pause to think about what was said.
It was so frustrating because this narrator didn't read at a normal pace. I am talking about how he read at a breakneck speed. I was ready to turn off the audiobook and go buy the paperback. I can listen and absorb a lot of information. I have listened to many many complicated books (like the Enron debacle).
I have never had an audiobook like this. I hope that Vincent listens to this and asks for another narrator.
The narrator also had a monotone voice throughout the book.
This book made me wish that Vincent Bugliosi was the prosecutor when O.J. Simpson killed his X-Wife Nicole and Ron Goldman. I think that O.J. Simpson would have been convicted.
Narrators should speak at a normal pace or slower when delivering complicated facts, dates, numbers and such. This narrator was on the fast track. I guess he thought that it was a race. Well in my opinion reading is NOT a race.
In the O.J. trial, we heard the phrase "rush to judgement". In the case of this book, we have a "rush to publish".
Mr. Bugliosi's best writing comes when he has plenty of time to step back from his emotions and stick to the facts (_Helter Skelter_ and _Reclaiming History_, for example).
He approaches this book in a sometimes mean-spirited and very emotional way, especially since some of the people he knew from his days as a D.A. in L.A. were in some way involved in the prosecution of the case.
If you really want to hear how the man who brought members of the "Manson family" to justice would have tried the O.J. case, this book is for you.
