Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This much-publicized and highly sensational ``instant'' book by one of the closest confidantes of O.J. Simpson's slain ex-wife may well leave readers wondering, ``With friends like that, who needs enemies?'' Dedicated by Resnick (a self-proclaimed serious substance abuser) to ``the most wonderful friend I have ever known, and to women everywhere who are trapped in corrosive and humiliating relationships like the one Nicole did not survive,'' this tabloidy tell-all seems to dish as much dirt on Nicole as it does on her ex-husband, whom Resnick appears convinced murdered her best friend and Ron Goldman. Co-written by Walker, who works for the National Enquirer, the book is chock-full of details about the doomed couple's lives: O.J.'s uncontrollable temper, ego and possessiveness; Nicole's physical yearnings for tequila, Kansas City Chiefs football star Marcus Allen (who is a longtime friend of O.J.'s) and slain waiter Ron Goldman, who Resnick insists did not have an affair with her murdered girlfriend, but whom she felt certain Nicole was ``inevitably'' going to ``do.'' The book, which includes a brief chapter chronicling the night shortly before the murders when Resnick and Nicole fell into each other's arms and experimented with lesbian sex, altruistically concludes with a section offering a state-by-state listing of Help Line phone numbers for female victims of domestic violence.

Some of it was interesting so I gave it 2 stars.
Sunnfllower
There were many typos throughout the book and Nicole Brown is very poorly depicted.
Black Swan
If I'm right, it may not be their faults if they don't know how to tell the truth.

This woman considered herself to be Nicole's best friend. Poor Nicole. Because if that was true, and this woman was Nicole's best friend, then I wonder what her enemies were like? If the revelations in this book are true, then Nicole was nothing more than a bisexual man leach with who was kissed more times than the Pope's ring. What kind of friend would write such a trashy and expoitative book, whether true or not, mere months after a friend's brutal murder? What kind of friend would want to cash in on this terrible tragedy? The money that Resnick was paid for writing this book is, in my mind, blood money. I hope she's happy. If this woman was a true friend, she would have fought for justice for Nicole with dignity, love, and compassion, and NOT write this garbage, which serves nobody and does nothing but bring more pain and sorrow to the unspeakably victimised.
It's bad enough that the so called "Dream Team" and her murdering ex-husband trashed Nicole so badly in the wake of the murders and during the criminal and civil trials. But when this person was a so-called friend, it is just inexcuseable. Poor Nicole. I don't think she'll ever rest in peace.
For a glimpse of the real Nicole, read the things that her family has said about her. And for a glimpse of the reality of her relationship with her murdering husband, read the book "Raging Heart" by Sheila Weller. I wonder if book burnings are still conducted? If they are, this one should be at the top of the pile.

Format: Hardcover
I did not obsessively follow the O.J. Simpson trial but while visiting the library I discovered this book. As a student I am interested in trauma and was curious how this book would add to my psychology studies. Well not much. This book is poorly written with the author skipping around events so often that it is hard to keep up with where Nicole Brown is in her relationship with O.J. Simpson. The authors tone fluctuates from caring best friend to envious sexual rival. There were many typos throughout the book and Nicole Brown is very poorly depicted. Nicole Brown Simpson is described as a hypocritical, sex crazed dependent women. It would seem that a friend would try to place her in a more flattering light. However, the book has two merits: it is an EASY read and it does provide (a somewhat questionable) insight into the life of the rich and privileged. Mrs. Resnick was able to humanize Nicole and provide some details into Nicole's sad life. Yet, the flaws are many and they take away from the overall book. I borrowed it from the library and if you want to read it I suggest you do the same. PLEASE FOR YOUR SAKE DON'T BUY THIS BOOK.

"Lovely" Faye jumped on the bandwagon after the murders to publish this trash as soon as possible to gain notoriety and profit. She sure did not do her so-called best friend Nicole any favors.
Part of this narrative is spent in praising herself, at the same time she paints a picture of promiscuity, lesbian encounters, drugs and party, party, party. Where are their kids when these damaged and selfish women are out partying, sleeping around and drinking, and she has the nerve to paint herself as a good mother.
This book is disgusting and so is Faye Resnick.

Format: Hardcover
I thought this book would be a chronical of Nicole and OJ's relationship from the get-go, and how things eventually devolved to the sad state they were in at the end, but instead, it focused more on Faye Resnick's scatterbrained rantings about restaurants, clubs, sexual partners, vacations, and utterly soulless, vapid "friendships"...all provided in non-chronological order! There was relatively little information about the relationship between the famous couple: strange in a book that purports to be about that very subject. I feel sorry for Faye and Nicole, because I come away from reading this disjointed, rambling, bizarre account of seemingly disconnected events with the impression that both of them were seriously emotionally damaged women. So at least that was conveyed well.

I missed the OJ Simpson trial and all it's associated drama by about twenty years. I was eighteen at the time of the murders but far too distracted to pay it any attention. I was homeless and there was no television set behind the Stop and Shop supermarket where I laid my head to rest. I do recall talking on a payphone with my friend Amber as she watched the Bronco chase enfold on her end. As she gave me a bit- by- bit running commentary of what she was seeing, my mind was elsewhere, probably figuring out what I was going to shoplift for dinner and hoping I wouldn't get caught this time. It wasn't that I wasn't slick. I had black leopard spots dyed into the little hair I had and was watched as soon as I entered a store.

Anyway, Resnick's book.

I have read many celebrity memoirs and just as many true- crime and celebrity hangers-on tomes, but this one really takes the cake with the facade of its intent and in its marked opportunism masked as some kind of morality play.

Resnick purports to be on a mission. Her mission is two-fold. She wants to correct the media's portrayal of her dear, departed friend and she wants to help other victims of domestic abuse.

While Resnick does spend considerable time on the brume of abuse and terror Nicole lived under as the wife of OJ Simpson, she spends just as much time sharing with us her insider's knowledge of the minutia of Nicole's sex life. She does this under the guise of her first mission, correcting the media's portrayal of her friend.
