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.

    If you could sum up If I Did It in three words, what would they be?

    He. Did. It.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of If I Did It?

    Honestly the events leading up and the murder itself


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    The narrator was great. well done


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no, only because the beginning got a little repetitive but it was good to set a mood


    Any additional comments?

    This book exceeded expectations.

    Story
    "Narcissism and plausible deniability"

    The prologue gave great insight to the ghostwriter and his interactions with Simpson, even the time spent during his testimony. The inflections of voice during the story felt accurate. The transcripts of recordings throughout the book provided great insight. The phantom character Charlie, we believe, is Simpson's alter ego or conscience. Unfortunately Simpson has an astonishing ability to fabricate his "truths". He paints a mural of their failed marriage being Nicole's fault. Her two-faced addict tendencies lead her to blame everyone except herself. Of course this book is a "confession". Simpson alludes the fateful night to be a very bad nightmare to which he wishes he could wake up from. It is easy to lie to yourself when you're the only one correct in your world. Finally OJ gets to tell his side of the story which was "always" overlooked by the media. To find out who "did it" you'll have to listen in. This audiable was great for a road trip listen. Needless to say we won't be drinking orange juice anytime soon.

    "Interesting read"

    Good read for anyone curious about the murders. His account was very contradicting. He tells how in a rage he did it and then the remainder of the book was him defending that he didn't.

    "it's ok"

    Not a terrible read but only found a couple chapters interesting. The remaining chapters seem to be Simpson trying to show what a great person he is. Not in a subtle way. OVER THE TOP pandering.

    Story
    "OJ, The Victim, Really?"

    The best part of the book was the confession chapter. The build up to that point is very hard to listen to, because he really makes himself out to be the victim. There is no way to believe him in the early parts of the story. OJ is a complete narcissist abuser and he turns the whole story around to try and make the reader feel sorry for him. The only believable part is the confession chapter, the one that the ghost writer claimed OJ didn't like.

    I would have never spent money on this book if the proceeds went to OJ. In fact when someone suggested to read it, I laughed. Then they mentioned that the proceeds went to the Goldman family and I decided to give it a shot. The performance by the main reader was really good, I did enjoy listening to him.

    "Wow. Just wow."

    This book is an interesting insight into the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson. You do need to read between the lines to determine your own sense of what happened, though, because large parts of this book are so clearly filled with lies. OJ really portrays himself as the perfect husband while Nicole was a mess. Everything was her fault while he was constantly patient and understanding. My own interpretation is that she probably wasn't perfect. She probably did dabble in drugs. But OJ wasn't perfect either and had an intense temper. I think they had that type of crazy love where you're passionately in love for one minute, and screaming bloody murder at each other the next. I think he murdered her in a fit of rage and Ron Goldman was in the wrong place at the wrong time and then tried to prevent OJ from physically assaulting Nicole during one of their confrontations. OJ clearly can't admit to himself that he did it. He makes up a fictional character, Charlie, that accompanies him for the murder. I don't buy it. After the 'hypothetical' murder chapter, he goes back to acting as if he's innocent. He contradicts himself continuously in this book--once getting angry that people testified that he was in a bad mood the night of the murders because he wasn't. The next sentence is that he was then in a bad mood that night. It's a mess but fascinating. I recommend reading it if you're into the trial and curious about what actually happened.

    "OJ is a Narcissist"

    This story was confirmation of OJs classic narcissistic persona. So sorry for the wreckage he created for his family and the Goldmans.

    "Most telling book!"

    Like many others, I always believed O.J. to be guilty. This book proved it for me! I finished it pondering why would he put it out there and write this book? I believe he needed to confess his guilt. I also believed he felt a need to justify his actions. After reading the book I learned of the many frustrations he endured over the seperation and divorce from Nicole. While I have more empathy after reading the book, my feelings towards O.J.'s actions remain the same. No frustrations, torment, unhappiness, or agony deserves the right to kill.

    "Bizarre!"

    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!
