Customer Review

on 20 January 2004
There seems to be a theme through all the other reviews for 'Lucky' that this book stays with you. It does more than that. It opens your eyes and imagination so far that you feel that this could be your own story. It makes you stop and think and consider reactions that you were never truly sure that you had, and ultimately, it makes you question your own prejudices and opinions on rape and rape victims.
This is a book that is so painfully honest, so brutal, where nothing is hidden from the reader. Alice Sebold could never have told the story to a person face to face as well as this book is written.
I am an avid reader, and yet this is truly one of the most brilliant pieces of work that i have ever come across. This is not just an account of rape, it is one woman's battle with sexual violence and the attack on her mind rather than just her body. It is not just about the violence of rape, but the courage and determine to survive that Alice Sebold so incerdibly holds. Believe me, there will be very few books that could ever affect you as deeply as this one; so if you can only buy one book today, make sure its Alice Sebolds compelling 'Lucky'.
