really liked it

This is an excellent book, a memoir that concentrates mostly on the author's rape as a college freshman at Syracuse University and the traumatic aftermath. I liked the first three-fourths of the book even more than her most famous book, "Lovely Bones," which recently came out as a movie. There is no question that she as a practioner of the craft of writing she is superb. The last fourth of the book left me a little skeptical about what she was leaving out and kept me from giving the book my top rating.
