I have never wanted to rage quit a book so hard before I read this one. On the one hand, Dear really did some ground breaking research into this case and came across some very compelling pieces of evidence (For example: the day after the murders, OJ retains an attorney...not for himself, but for his son!). In terms of investigative work, I give Dear an A+. It really is a game changer.
However, the writing is beyond abysmal. I mean, holy repetition batman! I would listen to it for three hours and he would say nothing I didn't already know from the previous chapters. It was literally just him telling and retelling the same thing over and over. And he seemed to think a lot of this investigation was really exciting, even when it didn't pan out: For instance, he spent a great deal of time stalking some psychiatrist that OJ saw and covered every instance of this in his book. I just kept waiting for all of this to pay off and it never did. He recounted every instance that he *told* someone about his theory--and not just in the way that he just said he had a conversation with this person and what they said--he would recount it verbatim.
The book has been covered pretty extensively in the media, so unless you're a die hard crime junkie, I would recommend reading the content on the internet as opposed to reading the book.

Would you consider the audio edition of O. J. Is Innocent and I Can Prove It to be better than the print version?
Yes, because someone else reads it to me.
What did you like best about this story?
The narrator did a GREAT job. I loved the writing and the research done to compile the acts. Best of all, I liked that it did what it set out to do: Change my mind as to who killed Nicole & Ron.
Which scene was your favorite?
I think the interview with Dr. Henry Lee was great.
What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?
I never even knew Jason was a suspect. I think he may be charged one day.

If you have any interest in the OJ case then read this book.
I’ve always thought the jury made the right decision weather O.J. was innocent or guilty.
I now think the possibility of his innocence is almost proved!
The book was a bit long winded and repetitive at times but still worth the listen!
Mr Dear you did a great job and I hope you are still pressing for this case to be reopened!
