The reactions and actions of those faced with dealing with her and the "incident" often hurt more to read than the description of the rape itself. As, Alice strives to reach a normality in her life and in her relationships, the perpetrator is brought to trial, and eventualy convicted.
The most interesting part of the book is Alices way of dealing with her new life and the choices she makes and the way she thinks of herself and the situatuons she ends up in.
"Lucky" is a beautifully written, clear and honest book. I am amazed at the integrity and assurance with wich Alice Seabold writes.
The reason this works is because it is not just another book about a girl who is raped, it is a real life story that many of us can empathise with. And empathise we did, we also laughed with Alice and cried with Alice and we were fighting along with Alice for justice....something that some of us have wished for, only to have our wishes denied. Alice not only speaks for herself in Lucky, but also for the rest of us who were to afraid to speak for ourselves. Brilliant.
(Read this along with her book "The Lovely Bones")
