Another detailed, researched tale by a gifted writer. Until one reads about this destructive event it's easy to shrug it off as happening to others... At times I wanted to move along due to the repetition of horrendous reliving. Now I'm curious how the people have moved on in their lives. Having known a woman so terrorized by a former husband & knowing she rarely let her guard down for 25+ years I have some understanding of the damage that remains.

Good book.

I'm a big Jon Krakauer fan--his books are well-reported and super readable. I found the reporting in this book to be less complex than his previous work--given his scope, this probably would have made a great long-form article. That said, I appreciate Krakauer's work toward reshaping our culture's view of rape by re-centering the discussion on the perpetrator's crime--and more importantly, how our criminal justice system protects those perpetrators--rather than the historical focus on the victim's behavior. An important critical look at our cultural assumptions about rape and rapists.
