More About This Book

Overview

Terri lived with O. J. and Nicole years before their marriage. She witnessed firsthand the power struggles in the couple's intense relationship. She listened upstairs as they engaged in violent arguments. Yet when the murders took place years later, her entire family remained steadfast in its insistence that O. J. was innocent. She'd soon learn that what bound them together was loyalty, not certainty, and in the midst of it all, she was left with her own unanswered questions. Was her uncle really innocent? Or was her family simply blinded by love and loyalty? These were subjects no one in the Simpson family was allowed to discuss. Now, for the first time, Terri Baker breaks her family's code of silence. She talks honestly and painfully about O. J.'s discomfort with his African American roots and his love affair with wealthy white America. She tells how it felt to live in the shadow of her famous uncle, while the Browns rode on the coattails of his fame. She describes the financial and emotional strains of two trials on her family, as they banded together to support a man who rarely supported them. Most movingly, she talks about her own inner conflicts as the struggle between truth and family loyalty drove her to alcoholism and severe depression.

    I'm dancing now that I'm done with this book!

    I felt the author wanted her 15 minutes of fame. It wasn't the unbiased book that I heard it was. I also felt that her attacks against the Browns were unjustified, especially those against Nicole. If you enjoy books where the author is living off of someone else's fame, then this book is for you. I really ashamed to say that I wasted 2 days of my life reading this junk.

    A Realist's Treasure.

    I'm only 12 and I can comprehend this book. I'm a realist, and I believe in telling it as it is. Terri Baker definatly tells it like it is. She vividly explains her experiences in and out of Rockhingham. She also manages to push herself to tell everything. She makes you feel as if you were a Simpson by opening the book with a twelve-page introduction, and then giving you her family history. All of this just helps you to more understand her story. Ms. Baker lets her emotions overtake you're emotions and lets you be at Rockhingham. Terri tells of how she felt toward her uncle and how she does. She uses a keen choice of words, and an explicit nakedness of the truth to tell you things which the media doesn't even know. I picked up a lot. I was very young during the nine-month trial and during the media field-day of the murder, but this book helped me in an unpayable way to understand life as a Simpson, and as a celebrity relative. This book jumps on a definatly racialy-split topic, but it alows even the most guilty-thinking-white person to think on that which he has only assumed. If you want a second look, and if you want a good view, read this book!!!
