I received this awhile ago and thought I had journalled it as received.. I kept hearing how intense it was and wanted to read it. I have "Lovely Bones" but have not read it yet... it seemed so morbid and the time never seemed right to pick it up. Several people praised "Lucky" and were emphatic I should read "Lucky" first. I recently read another memoir (Autobiography of a Face-Lucy Grealy) and I was in the right frame of mind for this introspective soul-searching journey. The book was riveting. I felt repulsion, compassion, sadness, disbelief, shock and frustration that such a seemingly strong woman had such a burdensome road to justice. What I came away with is that rape is is a violent life-changing event that robs victims and anyone elses lifes who it touches of so much more than the act. I now see it in terms of not really healing... emotional wounds don't really ever go away...they become part of who you are in such an insidious way. It seems victims are faced with an eternally evolving journey of self acceptance. My heart goes out to anyone in this situation and I applaud the author for having the strength to share her story.

Excellent Book! My daughter actually read it before me and she too loved it. I'm not quite 100% sure what I am going to do with the book as everything that took place in this book I have been too.. I live just a lil south of Syracuse. I feel a bit connected to the whole book. I'm so intrigued, I'm probably going to do a lil research and see who the real DA was as well as the real name of the defendant and his attorney. I wonder if this guy is out of jail yet and walking the streets my daughter will be walking next year when she attends SU. Sort of make me worried already... but we all know you don't go to Thorden Park or through it at night. I am sure the streets were safer in 81... Oh I could go on and on. Alice is a true Trooper and Kudo's to her for her willpower!

This was a book which aroused difficult feelings - anxiety, anger and sadness. I tried to imagine how one would feel to read this if one had experienced rape. Though the theme was not easy, I liked the book as I liked The Lovely Bones, too.
I've promised to send the book next to brewski.

Reading this made me vaguely ashamed to be a guy...but the book was extremely well written and very engaging. I can't help but admire Sebold's ability to cope with such a horrific ordeal, and to manage to make the reader laugh at times. Amazing!
