I am glad I listened to this book. I appreciated getting a fuller picture of her experience. As others have said, the title is misleading a bit. I have that uneasy feeling that many do, that there is something about the way that Kim and her dad keep their anger alive which is totally understandable, but which appears unhealthy. It seems unexamined, and I thought this book would be more of a wrestling with what it might mean for her to forgive. (Not that they are obliged to us to grieve in any particular way, of course.) I thought she had a right to explain the story of the "If I Did It" book and I agree with her that we never knew the whole story. I also thought her early experience with her mom explains something of how she has reacted to Ron's death.
She feels Oprah humiliated her. Really?
If I'm to be an armchair psychologist, I think Kim over-identifies with her dad, which is understandable, as he's been a great dad. They seem a little locked in a pattern, but that doesn't change the fact that she seems a very decent lovely person.
I skipped the last 3 chapters because it appeared it was going to be a list of every man she ever dated. I do have sympathy with her dilemma about how to broach the topic with people when she starts to get close to them.
Overall, interesting if you're a bit obsessed without the crime, as I am. Otherwise, nothing compelling.

This book is a memoir of Kim's life, it doesn't have a ton to do with OJ. I was not expecting to learn about the life of Kim Goldman. I do think she is a strong person, but I was expecting something different based on the title
