Alice Sebold

She alternates smoothly between short, simple, punchy sentences, and flighty, novelistic turns-of-phrase. But it is Sebold’s wry and factual telling of her story that made me keep listening, even when it was difficult.

This is a powerful book right up to the last section which is titled ‘Aftermath’ and without which the book would have been undoubtedly stronger.

Amabili resti

I mean wow, I am just absolutely shocked and floored by this question. It was interesting reading this true story after “The Lovely Bones” this was her first published book as now I see where her obsession with interlacing violence with the mundane world comes from.

All the wo This is what I remember. After reading the first chapter, I felt almost guilty putting it down; like a owed it to her to hear her story and expose myself to her life-altering experience.

Alice is brutally raped and beaten she struggles as much as she can, but is threatened by her attacker that he will kill her is she doesn’t do as she is told. It made me sick and enraged to read it, but it tells an important story and I’m glad I read it.


She has published three books: It read like a novel and I could not put it down. So here was the authentic account — the real personal rape. I was fine with it, if he hadn’t done that, but he did.

The she would right about frivolous details of her college friends life that had nothing to do with anything. I normally love Alice Sebold’s matter-of-fact writing style, but here, it failed.

He had known me for two weeks. And, like the book and ill-spoken words of the police officers said of Sebold, she was relatively ‘lucky’ with her situation. Open Preview See a Amaboli Studies have shown where d As a grad student at Syracuse, this book definitely hits close to home. Someone once told me “knowledge is power”. Talking about rape isn’t easy. Reesti comparison, they said, I was lucky She was attacked in a park, and then dragged to a tunnel and raped, by a complete stranger.

I would find myself not being able to put the book down during the time between the rape and the trial, watching Alice justify her actions and her drinking and not even commenting on the fact that it was an escape mechanism. I give Sebold credit for being frank and honest about the extent to reati she deceived herself, about how she used alcohol and heroin and bad relationships to self-medicate, and I identify with her intellectual impatience with herself to be “over it”.

In the aftermath of her rape, and even so many years later, it was clear that no one really wanted to hear her story, certainly not to the extent that she needed to tell it. It is horrifying to read, but then again, Rape isn’t supposed to be beautiful and dreamy.


However, I thought Sebold’s frankness was very important to her story. Sebold’s story starts with an act that despite its violence, its illegality, is simple. Her own father asked her how she could have “allowed” the rape to happen, since her perpetrator wasn’t holding the knife to her throat the entire time?

It is to Sebold’s credit that in this memoir she doesn’t come across as particularly likable or admirable. The her heroin use was just a after llibro What does one say to the victim?

Then, smoothly, Sebold will shift styles, such as the way she describes how she talked to her rapist: But, it has to be done. As it is still.

When I heard about the dead girl, I could imagine her pleading as I had, and wondered when her hair had been pulled loose from her hair tie For instance, during the rape, she wrenchingly describes being forced to give oral sex. She described her rape and the events in her life that followed, but she kept saying that no one else can understand what it’s like to be a victim of that kind of violence.

Even though Sebold’s rape happened inall of lubro she deals with can still be found today.
