Rosie Price Ø 0 Summary

What Red Was Free download  0 Incisive and mesmerizing novel about power privilege and consent one that fearlessly explores the effects of trauma on the mind and body of a young woman the tyrannies of memory the sacrifices involved in staying silent and the courage in speaking out And when Kate does it raises this urgent uestion whose story is it no. trigger warning for sexual assault I think this is a very interesting very uneven book What Red Was follows Kate and Max two friends who meet during the first week of university and become inseparable They come from very different backgrounds Kate is from a poor single parent household and Max s family is large and affluent and after they graduate university Kate s life is shattered when she s raped during a party at Max s family homeFrom reading this book s summary and seeing its comparisons to Normal People by Sally Rooney and Asking For It by Louise O Neill I expected two things from What Red Was a nuanced exploration of the aftermath of sexual assault and Price mostly delivered here on this in a minute and alternating perspectives between Kate and Max What I didn t expect was that Max s family would feature so heavily into the narrative We do indeed hear from both Max and Kate but we also hear from Max s mom Max s cousin Max s uncle Max s father Max s sister all of whom have very generic Rich People Problems There s talk of depression alcoholism inheritance drama all of which in theory has the potential to be compelling but none of it really is I can only imagine that Rosie Price structured her book this way because she wanted this to be robust than a book about rape the result is that characters and stories which should merely exist to contextualize Kate s own narrative end up overpowering itThe other problem which I encountered early on was that I didn t love Rosie Price s prose which felt to me very conversational and millennial to the point where it distracted when we were in the heads of older characters However when this book did focus on Kate it excelled This is a brilliant examination not only of the long lasting physical toll taken by sexual assault but also of the delicate balance that every victim must go through of deciding who to share their story with and how much of their story to share This isn t a book that advocates that victims not speak out but it is an incredibly sympathetic look on how much challenging it can be in reality than in theoryI also thought Rosie Price did an excellent job at writing Kate and Max s friendship a lot of the foundation of their relationship was glossed over given that four years of university were covered in about fifty pages but I still found myself believing them and sympathizing with the extent to which Kate was concerned with Max s feelingsUltimately I thought this was an important and nuanced book when it zeroed in on its central topic but it did meander a bit too much for my liking
