Finally got around to reading this book after having it on my bookshelf for so long. Its not just a book about a trial. It's a book about a woman, Marcia Clark. It takes us inside her head and her heart. A deeply personal story of a woman who, when caught up in an event that galvanized an entire country, rose to that occasion with integrity, drive, honesty, and grace. No one is spared in this unflinching account - least of all Clark herself, who candidly admits what she wishes she'd done differently - and for the first time, we understand why the outcome was inevitable.
Well written with lots of details of the "Trial of the Century" but you think she tried the case by herself. She doesn't even mention Chris Darden until about page 220, at least 2/3 the way through the book.
An interesting memoir from a member of the O.J. Simpson prosecution team. I learned how difficult and life-changing the trial was for Marcia Clark. Very interesting to read even this long after the trial.
What was life like for Marcia Clark, the lead prosecutor in "The Trial of the Century" against O.J.Simpson. What was it like orchestrating the most controversial case of her career, her personal battles, a painful very brutal divorce. When did she realize the case was lost and who stood by her, and who abandoned her. And how did she cope with the outcome?
Good story- sometimes got lost in the technicality of it.
this is a difficult read.is it because we know the
outcome before we open the book. neither joyfull or sypathetic, the author takes everyone involved to task ,including herself
Very interesting. Marcia Clark was lead prosecutor in the trial of O.J. Simpson
Very informative from cover to cover. Loved it!! Includes pictures of the crime scene and others.
I really enjoyed this book - Marcia Clark's telling of the Simpson trial from her perspective. It is hard to believe that 10 years have gone by since the whole spectacle....
Good book. Covers the whole case from Marcia Clarks point of view and explains her actions and reactions of things that happened both in front of the camera and behind the scenes. Exposes her vunability as a women in a "mans world" during the trial of the century.
This is completely NEW with the plastic cover.
