This book is really interesting, and if you can interpret "OJ CODE," you''ll learn a lot.
He''s not speaking in a straight-forward honest fashion but reveals a lot in coded detail. A lot is revealed in Pablo Fenjves''s Prologue, where he describes how the book was written and OJ''s attitude throughout the process, and the games OJ played at the end, trying to trick Pablo, after the transcripts were submitted, into taking the blame for writing fiction when it came to the descriptions of the murders.
Years later, it would actually come to fruition, that OJ would try to pull off the scam of attacking his own book. If one goes to ojsimpson.co they will find a video attempting to debunk this book by pointing out the inaccuracies that OJ planted in it. Pablo called OJ on this scam, OJ denied he was trying to do it, and then attempted it years later, thinking that no one would remember, I guess? And basically, people don''t remember.
OJ exposes the fact that someone actually was with him at the murder site. I believe this it be true. The autopsy showed that there were two knives used in the killing of Goldman. It also shows that Goldman landed a lot of punches--via his bruised up knuckles and the fact that he was a karate expert--yet outside of a small cut on his left middle finger, OJ had no bruise nor signs that he''d been in any fight at all.
But OJ lied about a lot of obvious little details. He parked in Nicole''s back driveway, not across the ally from her place. He probably used stolen house keys to get into the back gate, rather than just push the gate open because the lock didn''t work. Also, Ron Goldman did NOT also enter the back gate, as OJ writes.
But the facts that Kato (the dog) wagged his tail when he saw Goldman, and also that Goldman went into his karate stance are probably true...how would OJ even know that Goldman was a karate expert? I''d never heard that before I read OJ''s book.
So, yes, some truth, and some fiction mixed in with it, the fiction purposely planted by OJ so that he could later "prove" that the whole chapter on the killings was pure fiction.
Another thing is, I believe he choose Fenjves to be the ghost writer, because Fenjves was a witness in his trail, and Fenjves''s testimony was at the cornerstone of Marcia Clark''s botched timeline. Fenjves testified that he heard a dog''s "plaintive wail" at 10:15 PM. He was wrong and there were plenty of locals who heard the dog''s wailing and barking after 10:35 PM.
OJ picked Fenjves because he knew his testimony was off, and that he could later point it out and say that this story was Fenjves''s attempt to justify his bogus testimony. I don''t think Fenjves lied in court on purpose, he was just mistaken about what time it was, and Marcia jumped all over it because it bolstered her erroneous theory of the time of the murders--but that''s another story.
So, if you''re willing to read other books about the murders and then combine it with this book, you''ll be able to better separate the BS from the truth in this book.
OJ''s battlecry throughout this book is that he''s trying to protect his children because of what a great and altruistic father he is. That''s his excuse for everything, including his excuse for killing Nicole in this book.
Another interesting note about this book is that, OJ considers this a work of fiction, BUT even in this fictional account where he really did commit the murders, OJ is still angry that people dare think he''s guilty!!! Haha. WTF? Funny guy.
