Demon Princess: It starts out with a graphic account of 18 year old Alice Sebold's rape. I say account because it is mostly just facts, but that doesn't make it any easier to read. However I do think it was necessary to know the details to be able to understand how a horrible ordeal that lasted an hour affects the victim forever in so many different ways.
It's a story of courage but without a halo. Sebold doesn't come off as having all the answers. She just explains how she got through the rape, trial and its aftermath. And she didn't do it without difficulty. The book strikes me as clinical in many ways, in particular Sebold's account of the trial and the defense attorney's attempt to exonerate his client.
The facts themselves are enough to indict the legal system that always tries to blame the female victim. However, in this case, the prosecutors had a nearly perfect victim. Sebold was a virgin before the rape, was brutally beaten in easily photographed ways, had not used drugs or alcohol and after a few initial stumbles, is able to catch on to the defense lawyer's attempts to cast a bad light on her or twist her words.
I really appreciate that the book didn't become a raging diatribe at any point. It simply points out ,as Sebold says, that being a woman can suck, because they are always trying to smash you down.
Even the aftermath of the rape and Sebold's trying to get on with her life after the rapist's conviction rings very true and is touching without trying to emotionally manipulate. If you want to know how such a brutal crime can affect you or simply read about someone who made it through, it's worth reading this book.
Hardcover Verified download. Most depressing book I've ever read. Because I knew something of the story before reading it, I wasn't expecting a Hallmark fantasy.
I bought the book because I actually love murder mysteries, especially true ones, and love insightful horror stories, but this just left me cold. It is well-written, but what ever happened to resting in peace?
This girl suffers more in death than in her actual murder. The whole dead narrator thing feels like a gimmick. The movie was on last night, and I reluctantly watched it.
Although unnecessarily gruesome at times, it was actually better, artistically, in my opinion, than the book, which is something that almost never happens.
