When she burst out a profanity in the courtroom.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Every page of this book moved me. It is the most chilling book I have ever read. And I read approximately 200 books a year.
Any additional comments?
I would not even know how to qualify this book in a genre. It is in a genre of it's own. This is not a book you will be able to forget. For me, reading this book was akin to sitting a room and having the oxygen slowly escape and then being hit with sudden outrage. The writing is indescribable. But you are pulled into the mind very gently, and it is very real. You are there and living it. Fantastic communication skills. Courageous honesty. This is the door to another universe. You will be enlightened. Outraged. Curious. Motivated. Incredulous. Offended. Indignant. Your reality will be violated. And you will be motivated to act, to do something to fix our current conditions. This book will open your eyes to the injustice that is woven within our justice system. And you will be more aware of these conditions you are parked in.

I *hate-listened* to the end of this book. I sit, unbelieving, as each atrocious description of the Author's actions, are described, with the brashest lack of self unawareness. The rape trial, in which this book spends the majority of its' time exploring, has *Two* victims, but you wouldn't know that - because, Emily's own narrative of her self-importance, *is* the only narrative. And just when one thinks it couldn't get any more painful; The untimely, and tragic death of a beloved, and much respected faculty member, gives our heroine some much needed self-pitying.
Unsure if it was the author's poor writing, or the narrator's whiney voice,. A confusing, rambling, racist, (who the f*ck thinks that sink taps with a single spout are "Normal"? Or worth mentioning!?...)
It's a journal for her American friends to read, so all things British are over explained Soccer is "Football", Faucets are called "taps" and look funny, They don't have Thanksgiving here... (She's lived there for 10 years.)
I did some research, based on me; it helped to be really rich to get over a sexual assault and live a great lifestyle. Look at me!
The author gives feminist survivors of heinous attacks a filthy name; And allows MRAs to take aim...
I could go on... Hate-Listen if you've nothing better to do; However, this is complete self-indulgent DROSS!
