Oh man what do I say about this book br br It was my time to pick a book club book so I figured it was finally time to dust off my signed copy and finally read this book I have put this book on the back burner simply because I knew that I was going to cry reading it I've been reading some heavier books but with the recent tragedies that have happened in the past few years I knew I needed to finally read this book br br Media Circus by Kim Goldman was really interesting It kept me turning the pages & I enjoyed how different this book was I loved that it focused on the media and I loved that it brought victims in that many people leave out when thinking of victims I also enjoyed seeing what each person was up to at the time that this book was written It was very inspiring to see how many of them are using their voice to help others br br The only thing that I felt was lacking was a conclusion I really felt that each story needed a conclusionary paragraph It seemed to just not flow properly I really would have loved to have the conclusion that could then pull in the next story It would have helped the book progress instead of jumping to the next story br br All in all I enjoyed this book It was hard to read & I cried many times while reading this book I was heartbroken I was inspired I was angry This book sits under the skin & I think it will stay with me for a while

Imagine losing a loved one in the public eyeA media frenzy ensues and spreads your family name through the news Reporters ambush you and across the country strangers gossip about your personal lossWelcome to the circusNo one understands better than Kim Goldman the complex emotions of individuals suffering a personal tragedy under the relentless gaze of the media During the famed OJ Simpson trial Kim whose brother Ron Goldman was brutally murdered became the public poster child for victims suffering in the public eyeIn Media Circus Goldman now a dedicated victims’ advocate who works with families across the country presents the first collective look at the. From reading the other reviews I'm wondering if I just totally didn't get this book or what Everyone seems to think it's fantastic but I thought it was just okay I'm sure there will be comments but that's okay because I stand by what I thinkbr br I felt many of the stories that were highlighted were rushed and weren't fully explored as far as how the media impacted the families nor did I think there was enough indepth discussion with the family members that were interviewed All of these crimes were horrible and I'm sure a lot of media attention makes that worse but also in many cases a lot of media attention will help find a missing child or that serial rapist the police are looking for so it's really a doubleedged sword Kim mostly glides right over that aspect of media attentionbr br I purchased this book because it was highly recommended to me but I came to feel that this was just another effort by Kim Goldman to stay relevant No matter how many of us read this we cannot control how the media handles high profile crime victims and whether or not any of us ever tune in again when a major crime is being covered it will still go on I definitely think that Ron Goldman's murder was horrendous and that his murder was overshadowed by the fact that Nicole Brown Simpson was murdered with him and that OJ was dealt with differently than had he been just some average Joe But none of that can be changed at this point in time and I think some of that is the driving force behind this novel

summary Media Circus: A Look at Private Tragedy in the Public Eye

Media Circus A Look at Private Tragedy in the Public EyeSe ordinary grieving victims forced to manage their very private trauma and despair in a very public wayThrough candid interviews and detailed original reporting Media Circus delivers riveting humanizing and inspiring stories from the victims and survivors of violent crimes who found themselves the focus of national media attention Its heartfelt narratives showcase the uniue challenges of coping with and healing from grief when the whole world is watchingIn these pages the families of other victims tell their stories includingEsaw And Emerald Garner wife and daughter of police brutality victim Eric Garner Scarlett Lewis mother of sixyearold Newtown tragedy. I am for better and for worse someone who finds unbelievably awful crimes interesting I'm fascinated by human nature's unpredictability Simultaneously I think the way the media flocks around tragedy is horrific I have enormous compassion for the families whose lives are utterly upended twice by both their personal tragedy and the media circusbr br I was familiar with each of the crimes discussed in this book and I truly truly treasured the opportunity to see an insider's perspective I think this book is an important addition to the true crime genre it is not necessarily within the genre but it is an important counterpoint I would urge anyone who is interested in true crime to read this bookbr br That being said the actual writing around the interviews is fairly straightforward and without much personality I was far less interested in Kim Goldman who undoubtedly has something to add to this book but perhaps not the role of narrator than in the people she interviewed br br Regardless I so appreciate her effort and the courage of those she interviewed to share their storiesbr br I RECEIVED THIS BOOK FROM NETGALLEY IN EXCHANGE FOR MY HONEST REVIEW
