review Ú PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ø Rosie Price Rosie Price Ø 4 Summary Read & Download What Red Was 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. 25 rounded up I m struggling with how to review What Red Was there are moments where it feels like a well handled depiction of how one young woman deals with the aftermath of rape and at others it feels like a bit of a drawn out and confused narrative lacking nuance where the characters are kept at a distance which is probably due to the style of writing Yet something kept me reading so if it sounds vaguely up your street I d probably recommend checking it out Thank you Netgalley and Random House UK Vintage Publishing for the advance copy which was provided in exchange for an honest review
