    Emma O'Donovan is not a character Louise O’Neill created to narrate this bookEmma exists She’s everywhere Where you are where I am where everyone is There are Emmas all over the worldWhich is why it’s so important for people to read this bookRape cases happen so often that we’ve come to trivialize them in our culture it’s true The word rape has always had a negative connotation to it and it still does no one wants to talk about it but it’s still not taken seriously enoughAnd we have Emma as proof Louise O’Neill is an outstanding writer She asks a lot of uestions to the readers with this book And most importantly she challenges us Emma is a bitch She’s shallow selfish envious A thief a liar a phony A bitch a slut a victimWas she asking for it Is she really a victim Did she give her consent or not Does she deserve what happened to her Is this a cautionary tale for all teen girlsIf she had been different – nicer lovelier less of a bitch – would the response had been different alsoThere’s nothing magical about this book but it’s still spellbinding And scary And ugly And sad And frustratingBut oh so realistic and honest Even the ending isThank you Louise O’Neill for no sugar coating Blog | Youtube | Twitter | Instagram | Google | Bloglovin’

    “My body is not my own any They have stamped their names all over it”Everybody must read this It should be read in school uni book clubs By parents and by teenagers By you This is a highly underrated novel and needs way attentionThis was incredible I can't say I enjoyed reading it because I did not It made me feel uneasy uncomfortable ueasy angry sad and very very hopelessThe writing itself is awesome the characters intruiging You don't really bond with them because they're mean arrogant and selfish But this perspective is so surprising that it made me want to read and The ending was disappointing on one hand but on the other hand the best way to end itRape culture is a thing an ugly one and it needs to be acknowledged and foughtFind of my books on Instagram

    I reviewed Louise O'Neill's Only Ever Yours in August and put Asking For It straight on the top of my TBR I knew it was going to be difficult powerful and much needed even before I started It's the perfect choice for my book club because we're all sure to have a lot to sayAsking For It is about what happens to eighteen year old student Emma O'Donovan after she is raped at a party by a group of boys on the school football team She doesn't understand what's happened to her until photos of that night are shared on Facebook I thought Asking For It was going to be straightforward but Louise O'Neill makes Emma an unlikeable character She's vain self centred hurtful and judgemental She's not someone you would want to know let alone be friends with Most – sadly not all – people would be outraged to discover that a boy had attacked an 'innocent' young girl on her way home especially if she was in a private school uniform; if she was covered up But what if she was wearing a short dress What if she was drunk What if she was over 18 What if she made a move first Would we say she was asking for it This is what Louise O'Neill wants to fight againstI knew Asking For It was going to be a difficult read but I also knew that it was extremely important that I read it Asking For It addresses so many aspects of our lives that are often left unuestioned It tackles how awful and judgemental people can be towards each other even when we as readers can see who's in the right and feel it should be evident How people struggle to understand consent and what exactly constitutes rape especially as Emma herself doesn't realise she's been raped until the teacher suggests it I thought it was interesting to see the portrayal of social media and traditional media both shown as a tool for abuse and as a tool to give people a voice Support for rape victims on social media seems wonderful and essential But if you're the victim it can be intrusive having people tell your story for you and this isn't something that had ever occurred to me Would I want everyone talking about me even if what they were saying was supportiveAsking For It will make you angry and rightly so Louise O'Neill doesn't shy away from reality and as with Only Ever Yours doesn't tie up Asking For It with a happily ever after Perhaps instead of arguing about which classics should be taught in schools we should be arguing that Asking For It should be taught alongside them Even after so many years of education – from school to college to university – I have never within education participated in a conversation about rape This must change Let's talk I cannot remember so those photos and those comments have become my memories I also reviewed this book over on Pretty Books

    Where to startAsking For It will hit you hard in emotional places you didn’t even know you had Louise O’Neill has some stark truths to put in front of us and boy does she do that without giving you ANY room to wriggle away or hide from them This book SHOULD assuming you are a human being make you mad as all hell Because sadly every single little bit of the story could be has been and will be something that happens Happened Will happen againunless we change an awful lot of attitudesWe’ve all heard the term “Asking For It” right And if you are honest you may have even thought about it in passing if observing an obviously drunk girl on the street especially if she is wearing something that dares to show a bit of skin You don’t really MEAN it but the thought or something similar may flit around in your subconcious The problem being of course not that you as a person are particularly horrible or unfeeling – but that this is the pervading attitude in our society that is ingrained at a very basic level and is taking WAY too long to disappearIf you are going to take this issue and write a book that counts you are going to have to have an AMAZING amount of talent Because anyone with any writing ability could have written the plot but not many writers would have the ability to make you feel it RIGHT IN YOUR GUTNot many writers would have had the audacity to create a character who is extraordinarily unlikeable a “mean girl” popular and unrelentingly selfish have this horrible thing happen to her whilst she is incapable through her own actions of making considered decisions and then expect the reader to accept that it’s not her fault BECAUSE IT IS NOT HER FAULT You’ll get there This author is not going to let you end up anywhere elseIt’s all in that deft touch you see Telling the truth can be hard – when you are reading one of Ms O’Neill’s novels it is unrelenting that scalpel that she writes with will cut deep and draw emotional blood We meet Emma and her friends and the crowd they run with we meet her Mother who has very firm idea’s of how a girl should look and how she should conduct herself – and her father who adores his little “princess” Everyone loves Emma Until she falls off her pedestalFollowing along for a year after the “event” we see the impact of social media some very differing attitudes we see inside Emma’s head and it is compelling emotionally raw and absolutely authentic She spirals we spiral heading towards an ending that is so brutally realistic that it will take your breath away Louise O’Neill makes every word count You won’t be able to look away but boy will you want to will you want to hide under that duvet and pretend that the world is not actually this way it can’t POSSIBLY be we are enlightened this is 2015 after allWomen are eual If we want to drink as men do we can no judgement RightIf we want to wear short skirts high heels flirt with the guys give them a smile that’s ok RightIssues of consent Issues of personal responsibility Is there a line Where is itThe author asks these hard uestions Except really as she gets across they shouldn’t be hard uestions at ALL But it seems in our world today there are still those who uestion when a sexual assault occurs when a rape occurs whether or not the victim may have been “Asking For It”This is some of the most brilliantly insightful writing I have come across Ever This should be on the national curriculum I have no doubt that it will still be read in 100 years – HOPEFULLY as an insight for future generations into how we USED to be back when we were still learningOne of the toughest reads of my life As it should bePlease read itThey are all innocent until proven guilty Not me I am a liar until I am proven honest#NotAskingForIt

    this was H E A V Y also note im rating this for the book itself i did not like the writing style the abundance of characters and lack of evident transitions made it difficult to follow the story i found the main character difficult to empathise with etc if i was rating this based on the message alone it would probably get four stars because i cannot state how important it is for a story like this to be told sure the execution wasnt for me but that doesnt diminish the need for awareness in regards to situations like this i would have liked to have seen a different ending one that would have included justice for emma but that doesnt always happen in real life i understand how the focus was on emmas mental state dealing with what happened to her and how to move on from something like this these kind of situations dont just happen in books they happen every day in real life 25 stars

    Review post second read June 2018This is one of those books that still has impact after a second reading Honestly my heart is so full right now But I think it's so full because of the realities of this book and real world cases that we've all heard about A girl dresses in what is termed a provocative manner But why is her body immediately sexualised Why can't she dress in fashion forward feminine clothing because she likes the way she looks Why is it always assumed that a short skirt or a top that enhances a woman's cleavage is for your sexual gratification and not for her self body confidence A girl drinks alcohol on a night out with friendsWhy should she expect that someone will take advantage of her if she gets inebriated Why is she not allowed to let her hair down and believe that she will be safe from harmA girl flirts with a boy She goes somewhere uiet with him Kisses him maybe Why is she considered a tease if she doesn't want to engage in any other intimate relations with him A guy pushes too far sexually Her body panics Freezes She goes into shock Into self preservation mode Why is she expected to scream out and shout for help Why is she expected to cry no as loudly as she can Why is consent assumed Why if someone attacks her on the street demands her handbag is it then okay to go along with it hand over her possessions and try to be as subservient as she can for fear of the conseuences And then later have people tell her she did the right thing for staying uiet for not aggravating the criminal She is believed Why is it different for rape Why is a woman not believed I believe in the assumption of innocence until proven guilty as a cornerstone of our justice system But victims need support Things have to change Society has to change It should not be expected that as women we can't do some things or behave as we wish for fear of being assaulted either sexually or otherwise We need to change that mindset in society Nobody is ever asking for it Nobody No matter what you think about their moral values and how they differ to yours Each person on this planet is entitled to live their life as they wish as long as they do not bring harm to others She was not asking for it And as for the book It still reads sloppily in the first uarter with a confusing array of characters coming and going but this does contrast nicely with the sudden uietness of Emma's world once her life changes Her thoughts about herself are so painful to read The views of her family her friends her community Just If this doesn't move you to think about real life situations like this then I I just don't understand This isn't a perfect book It's not brilliantly written and it's heavy handed with how it's teaching the reader about rape culture But honestly I don't think that matters This book has had a profound impact here in Ireland Schools use it to discuss rape culture and matters of consent with teens it's about to be staged as a play in Cork this summer before coming to Dublin in the autumn So it's flawed But even in those flaws it's still gut wrenching and a must read A final uestion for us to ponder as a society Which of these four things causes rapea Short skirtsb Flirtingc Alcohold RapistsI know my answer PREview second read June 2018Getting ready to reread this with the members of 'A Book Nirvana' for June's book group read They are innocent until proven guilty Not me I am a liar until proven honestFrom what I recall this is an incredibly powerful read One that I was desperate to read and it became my first ever book that I had to have on the day of publishing sadly things didn't work out as planned and I got it the day after BUT IT WAS THE THOUGHT THAT COUNTS Anyway it's Louise O'Neill just being fabulously feminist and challenging all sorts of preconceived ideas we have about rape rape victims rapists It really gets into the nitty gritty of the insidiousness of rape culture in a small community and because it's based here in Ireland it hits close to the bone for me especially regarding commentary within Irish society about the attitudes of young men towards young women since a very public rape trial recently held in BelfastThe book is not without its flaws; I remember thinking that the narrative was a bit sloppy at the beginning and it was uite confusing with a lot of different characters at the start But once I got passed that I was thoroughly engaged Not a book that a person necessarily enjoys reading but one that really opens up debate on one of the disgusting facets of modern society I'm really interested to read it for the second time and see how I feel about the treatment of the male supporting characters It's something I've noticed in a lot of YA reads with an emphasis on feminism They kinda paint men as too much of a stereotype I'm thinking Holly Bourne The Nowhere Girls etc etc And I know my good friend Gabby agrees with me on this because we have had MANY discussions about these kinds of books But back to 'Asking For It' It's got a main character that isn't a saint Many people have labelled her unlikeable Including myself in my original review And honestly I'm so over that I call utter BS on myselfLike why are women expected to be likeable Are we all supposed to be vanilla snowflakes incapable of being fallible The demure maiden character who doesn't voice her opinion and stays subservient her whole life Ehhhh doesn't sound very realistic to me We rave about male anti heroes who can act as douchebaggy as they like but god forbid a woman does something deemed shady I am so freaking tired of gender stereotyping SO TIRED And how it's resulted in these ever so deeply entrenched opinions regarding women that we as communities have And all due to the propensity of views and attitudes of what has been traditionally a patriarchal led society So yes I give major props to O'Neill for writing characters that don't give a fiddlers about your precious feelings and whether or not you as a reader will like them Screw that I'm here for the characters that live their on page lives however they choose to Original Review first read September 2015This book was an utterly devastating read The main character is written as a very unlikeable person which in my mind is a very brave decision by the author It challenges our preconceived notions about her Makes us uestion her choices So then when the most heinous of acts is carried out against her when she has passed out at a party she is horrifically gang raped while being photographed by a group of sporting jocks from her local school but no one believes her no one takes her side; she had to have been “asking for it”And because this book is so exceptionally well plotted that you do almost catch yourself thinking well why did she do that Why did she dress that way They’re good boys really This all just got out of hand” But that is this book's main theme agenda talking point No one is EVER asking for it Not because of what they wear how they act anything There is no reason at all why victims of sexual crimes should be considered culpable NONEAnd when in the novel the author brings you into the world of the victim and the aftermath of what happened to heryou experience her pain despair guilt shame self loathingand you will feel everything with hereverything and you will hurt like you have never hurt before And the endingwill just floor you It left me utterly broken This book haunts me It haunts me to think that this happens That this is inspired by true eventsshame on us Shame on usRead this book It’s not a joyous read not an easy read but it is a necessary read “They are all innocent until proven guilty Not me I am a liar until I am proven honest”I have struggled thinking about what to rate this book It is five stars purely for the light it shines on the pervasiveness and insidious nature of rape culture in our society But from a prose standpoint it is only worth three stars as the beginning in particular is extremely sloppily structured There are too many characters thrown into the mix without adeuate clarity as to who is who their role function etc Therefore I choose to rate this four stars

    With great hype come great expectations It's fairly tough to try to ignore this book especially in Ireland It's being lauded as one of the greatest Irish novels in recent memory and all I will say to that is hmm While the message of this novel is very important I cannot say that the hype is deserved To be perfectly honest I would have preferred if O'Neill had just penned an essay an essay stating her views and the point she's trying to get across I feel she couldn't wrap a successful narrative or plot around her views and thus this novel ultimately fails it doesn't work The novel starts off slow and doesn't pick up any pace until the party scene I feel that the party scene being the most important scene is actually better written than the rest of the novel I can only presume that O'Neill paid special attention to this scene and spent a lot of time with it and that explains its triumph It is a harrowing scene and does capture the reader After that however we fall into middling territory I honestly feel I could have skipped 100 pages and wouldn't have missed anything I headed a book club discussion of this book in my university and a point that was made by everyone was that it does fall apart in the second half There is a lot of repetition and it does get boring However the majority of the group appreciated the book far than I did I was very much the outlier If there is one positive in this book it's O'Neill's wonderful ability to capture the essence of Irish teenhood The book is set in Cork and I am a fellow Corkonian still living in the county It really is wonderful how O'Neill conveys the patois of Irish teenage girls However in the end it's a mess The plot comes and goes and leaves the reader bored The minor characters are but husks of personalities It's getting two stars for effortless mannerisms and vernacular which is some of the best I've read Shame about the rest

    This book reminds me so much of this one girl I knew in college No she wasn’t raped But there were pictures of her on the internet all nude I found out through my boyfriend at the time One night he asked if there really was a girl name X at my college we went to different ones because his friend just forwarded an email with nude pictures of a girl with this name who the email claimed goes to my college I told him there was one a senior and I didn’t really know her I didn’t think anything of it I’m pretty sure I laughed feeling uite positive his friend was just full of shit But then he showed me these grainy black and white pictures in his email and holy christ clear as day it was her She wasn’t unconscious in them but the uality was too poor for me to tell if she was actually high or anything It was hella awful I was convinced it was some revenge shit from someone she dated and broke up with because she was posing in these pictures My ex said he would tell his friends to delete the email when I told him my theory I doubted they would listen to him though because to them this girl was just a stranger and may as well be another playboy model or something I never talked about those pictures to anyone not even to my college friends Because can you imagine how it would feel like Having someone who pass you in the hall all of the time studying in the same school seeing you naked without your permission view spoilerwhich is exactly the situation for Emma hide spoiler

    Reviewing this book today is not any easier that it was days ago when I finished reading it But I know most of you must've heard what just happened to Kesha who is being forced to work with the man who abused her physically and mentally And even though I'm not a fan of her music it doesn't matter It doesn't matter because for how many times I try to convince myself that our society is different that things are not how they used to be that rape and abuse are taken seriously and that women can speak up and be heard I'm lying to myself Because even if you're rich and famous you're still a woman and people are going to ask you what were you wearing Were you drinking Did you take any drugs Do you have evidence of what happened Your word alone is not enough Your pain is not enough Because you're a woman you're a slut bitch whore and you sure must've done something to make it happen You're not even a victim really you're the instigator You were asking for itThis is a powerful book that I would recommend to anyone men and women alike and not just to us the people who spend hours reading and reviewing and caring and who usually are the first to call out on abuse and sexism in books and in real life But we're so few How many times have you heard your friends call a girl in shorts and high heels a slut How many times have you heard someone joking about it saying that she's basically asking to be raped How many times have you received unwanted attention and have had to hide in the bathroom to leave the room or the house or to seek the protection of your friends because a guy couldn't take no for an answer and you knew that if you stayed a little longer things could've gotten ugly And how many of these times hiding in that bathroom and staring at your reflection in the dirty mirror have you thought that maybe you should've worn a longer dress Rape culture is in every day of our lives even if we sometimes do not realize it O'Neill made a very brave decision and didn't only write a book about a girl who was raped but she wrote a book about a hateful petty and jealous girl who was raped while she was drunk and high and then tried to defend her own attackers and deny that anything happened simply because she was too ashamed Because the same thing happened to her friend but she'd just told her to keep it uiet because no one likes a girl who makes a fuss Because we need to keep up the appearances no matter how many ugly things lie beneath them O'Neill wrote a book that makes us doubt ourselves Emma is a terrible friend She's a liar a thief she's manipulative and doesn't care about anyone but herself Emma gets raped Photos of what happened to her are all over the Internet and suddenly her life turns into a nightmare And all the while she still keeps blaming herself because she thinks she's ruining her rapists' lives Because it's her fault Because she was asking for itAnd the you get to know her the you get angry at her the your heart breaks because it doesn't matter if Emma is not a good person and it doesn't matter if she was under the influence of drugs and alcohol when she was raped All these things don't matter because there is only one thing that should be important in the eyes of the law that she was raped That her rights were violated and that the perpetrators need to be severely punished But the law is slow It takes years to go to trial to collect all evidence and Emma grows emptier every day Until she eventually gives up Asking For It is not a pretty book It's raw and painful and makes you so angry that you can't stop thinking about it for days weeks months because it's not fair because no one should ever blame the victim but when the victim's a woman when she's a slut everyone suddenly finds it really hard to believe her I'm writing this review with a lump in my throat I'm writing it for every girl who constantly keeps her eyes on her drink when she goes out at night who doesn't wear that dress that looks so good on her because she's scared she might send out the wrong signals as if what we do how we dress gives men any right to violate our rights Because we know We know that even if it's not fair the world is still based on the idea that when a woman is raped only half the fault is her rapist's and what were you wearing what were you drinking did you take any drugs you were asking for it really

    BEFORE I START If you are keeping up to date with the news these days you may have heard of the Stanford Rape case where the rapist Brock was sentenced to a despicably short 6 months UPDATE HE WAS RELEASED AFTER ONLY SERVING 3 MONTHS 3 FREAKING MONTHS Despicable This book cuts deeply into subjects similar to this case IT IS NOT OKAY TO TOUCH SOMEONE WITHOUT CONSENT SEXUAL ASSAULT IS REAL AND RAPISTS AREN'T GETTING THE SENTENCES THEY DESERVE It is outrageous the overwhelming rape culture I am here to say that it is not okay this is not okay and we need to put an end to this IF YOU PLAN ON VOTING DONALD TRUMP YOU ARE CONDONING A SEXUAL PREDATOR AND ARE MAKING IT SEEM AS THOUGH SEXUALLY ASSAULTING SOMEONE IS OKAY IT'S NOT DO NOT VOTE TRUMP sincerely a Canadian I would like to say that I recommend this book for everyone because I believe everyone should read this book It is devastating that the plot of this book is not unheard of and rings true We need to step up as a community this is not okay and never has been okay This book is extremely valuable to read for anyone whether you enjoy reading or not whether you are male or female young or old please consider reading this book Think Speak think All the Rage Asking For It is 10x explicit and I would even say beneficial to read What is it aboutTRIGGER WARNING I don't want to give too much away but the huge topics of this book is rape consent conseuences social issues depression etc This book surrounds a woman named Emma She is in high school and is very popular She gets attention from everyone and thrives on it Until one night It introduces the complexities of adolescents The ever changing social norms the need to fit in and to be seemingly perfect The lies pressure friendships community rumours shame etc This book is not to be taken lightly it deals with some very serious topics and delivers a very important messageMy ReviewLouise O'Neill 's writing is raw and exposed There is no beautifying the circumstances actions and beliefs of the characters This is very important for this book I was in awe I loved the writing the framework the dialogue the diction and the pace Every word she wrote served a purpose an underlying message if you dared to seek it I give this book 55 stars because it touched me the writing was superb the story and message were excellent and I was overwhelmed by the truth and vulnerability of the characters Also of course the astonishing writing Those who have suffered through a sexual assault know you aren't alone there ARE people that believe you and support you We WANTNEED you to get better No you will most likely never be the same person you were before but you are still you Any of you can always message me if you need someone to talk to about anything It is extremely important that you have a good support system most don't though This is a huge issue but I WILL BE YOUR SUPPORT SYSTEM if you ever need one I never want any of you to go through anything bad but it happens and whenif it happens or already has feel welcome and supported to message me LOVE TO ALL OF YOU XOXOXO
