October book review

I just finished reading "If I did it; Confessions of The Killer" written by Pablo F. Fenjves. It's the book OJ Simpson was going to publish before the Goldman family was awarded the rights and proceeds. Events described prior to the June 12, 1994 murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman are as OJ Simpson remembers them, only his side of the story is given. Simpson outlines his relationship with Nicole from the time they met up to and including her funeral and the low speed chase. The narcissistic manner in which Simpson portrays incidents, painting himself the victim, is sickening. Simpson implies Nicole was a drug user and bi-polar to explain her erratic behavior and claims she was jealous and obsessive, not him. One can clearly see he's psychotic. In the chapter detailing with the murders, which Simpson claims is a fictional account, OJ is joined by his friend "Charlie" who stood watch as OJ murdered Nicole and Ron.
I admit, I was sucked in by the media hype and wanted to read OJ's confession. All proceeds from the sale of this book go to the Goldman family to help satisfy the civil judgement that has risen, with interest, to over 38 million dollars.

The second book I read this month was "If Democrats Had Any Brains They'd Be Republicans" by Ann Coulter. If you're a fan of Coulter you enjoy this book. It is full of her quotes on everything from airport security to the war on terrorism. It's a compilation of her greatest hits, so to speak. Coulter tells the truth, she says out loud what we're all thinking. It's the best free publicity she could get every time they say; "she's gone too far" or "this time she's crossed the line", the liberals have been singing her swan song for the last 5 years while she's appearing everywhere and her books travel to the top. The book is also a quick read and her quotes really make you think. It's witty, cleaver and real. I highly recommend it if you're an Ann Coulter fan or if you want to see what the left has been whining about.
