Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in a College Town by Jon Krakauer: This is not the type of book I would typically pick up to read, but given I’ve enjoyed the author’s previous works I figured I would give this a shot. By far, this is the most disturbing book I’ve read in as long as I can remember, and a horrible, unfortunately true story that is all too common. On more than one occasion while reading this book I found myself wanting to stop reading and move to something much easier and less depressing to read. But, I couldn’t put it down. As an important topic and a difficult subject, it’s imperative that the world knows how imperfect our systems of justice are and what, as a society, we are allowing to happen. More than once while reading this book I found myself yelling out loud at the characters” because I not only was I disappointed with their words and actions, but because I felt sick inside while reading.
