I'd never yet read anything by Joyce Carol Oates. After a close friend strongly recommended her work, I told myself I'd give it a try. Having looked up the disheartening long list of Oates's published books, and seeing most novels were close to 500 pages, I decided to go for a novella, and 'take it easy'. That'd be shorter; lighter, too.
Little did I know that the novella I'd pick out (for no other reason than the intriguing title- how on earth could ‘rape’ be a 'love story'?) would be anything but easy.
Reading 'Rape' was like getting a big cruel kick in the stomach. I took it up on a Monday evening; could not put it aside- till it was 'over'.
In this story, when catharsis comes, it is superbly crafted, its morals shining bright, in quirky paradox: what we're shown here is… triumph. The triumph of friendship; the triumph of love.
This book isn't one you get over with. To me as a woman, it'll never be over; and though the story itself brings closure- the feelings it awakens can't be easily put to rest.
The brutality of those starting pages -the torture, in body and soul, of Teena Maguire; the anguish and terror of young Bethie; the seemingly endless, hopeless fight against cruelty and machismo of provincial America- all that stays with the reader.
This is a book I'll not forget.

JC Oates a écrit au moins une quarantaine de romans et nouvelles et la somme de ses écrits mérite , selon moi , un Prix Nobel de littérature .
Si vous souhaitez goûter au talent de ce merveilleux auteur , lisez en une soirée cette 'novella' qui donne toute la mesure son talent littéraire : un véritable coup de poing qui devrait vous donner l'envie de renouveler l'expérience !

A short novel with a huge impact 19 janvier 2004
Par Eileen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Joyce Carol Oates, the master of tales about hapless women victimized by men, has written a brilliant novella that brings this theme to a terrifying pinnacle in a story about rape, revenge, and love. Teena Maguire and her 12-year-old daughter Bethie are assaulted while walking home through a deserted park at night. Teena is brutally gang-raped and severely beaten while Bethie hides within hearing range of the violence. Bethie is able to identify several of the assailants. At the preliminary hearing, the defense attorney makes a fool of the deputy prosecutor and humiliates Teena on the witness stand. John Dromoor, the policeman who first arrived at the scene of the violence, takes a liking to Teena and Bethie and vows to help in any way he can to right the wrongs against them. Yes, this book is also a love story, but certainly not in the more conventional sense.
The story paints a powerful picture of the lingering after-effects of a horrible and violent crime. The friends and relatives of the rapists cast Teena as the instigator rather than the victim, and Teena becomes an outcast in her own town. She is so devastated that she wishes she had died instead of surviving the attack. Bethie finds that her identity has been irrevocably altered to that of the daughter of the woman who was gang-raped. She is now her mother's caretaker. The perpetrators are out on bail, and they continue to menace the victims. Bethie fears for her life since she was the person to identify the rapists.
This book is well written and the characters convincingly portrayed. The narration switches between the point of view of several of the main characters. The voice of Bethie is implemented in an unusual second person narrative. What makes this story most frightening is that rape victims can be, and often are, tormented by these same scenarios. In Oates' skillful hands, the psychological impacts are brought home in a frightening way. I recommend this story whether or not you are an Oates fan. It will haunt you long after you turn the final page.

This one will go to my must-reread pile! 22 septembre 2004
Par CoffeeGurl - Publié sur Amazon.com

I admit that the title of this novella caught my attention. I have read and loved Joyce Carol Oates's short-story collections and I couldn't wait to read more of her stuff. Rape: A Love Story is one of the most thought-provoking novellas I've ever read. The darkness and poignancy of this story enthralled me from beginning to end. Teena McGuire is an attractive thirty-year-old widow and mother of a pre-teen girl. Her life is normal until the day she is gang-raped and left for dead. Now her life isn't the same as she disintegrates from the life as she'd known it. What's worse is that her twelve-year-old daughter is left to pick up the pieces. But the truly disturbing things arise when Teena is in the witness stand and in front of her attackers. There are various disarming twists throughout the story.

I have noticed that Oates likes to delve into rape and sexual abuse issues, but she has gone all out with this novella. The story is truly chilling and you don't know whether to cry or wish the characters the best. I wanted the attackers to pay for what they did more than anything -- that's an excellent indication that the story and its characters have touched you in a deep level. Oates has always made me care about the stories and characters, even in her short stories. This is one of the best books I've read this year and I cannot recommend this one enough. Rape: A Love Story is definitely going on my must-reread pile.

"She had it coming. She asked for it." 30 août 2004
Par S. Calhoun - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I've hesitated reading RAPE: A LOVE STORY since it was published; the idea of reading about a rape never constituted pleasure reading for me with any stretch of imagination. But to tell the truth, I was also intrigued by the subtitle "A Love Story". Something was telling me that Joyce Carol Oates was going to put an eccentric spin on a terrible sequence of events and for that I wasn't disappointed.

I read this novella in one setting and it was a very difficult and painful experience for me. Oates creates a typical situation in which the victim is ruthlessly blamed for her demise while the perpetrators receive the community's sympathy. In this rendition of this tale the victim has the backing of a renegade who takes matters into his own hands to right the wrongs of the faulty criminal justice system.

In retrospect RAPE: A LOVE STORY is worth reading and to a degree necessary, not just for fans of Joyce Carol Oates but also for individuals everywhere. Recommended.

I was captivated from the first sentence. Great theme, fine book! 25 juillet 2005
Par Linda Linguvic - Publié sur Amazon.com

Set in working-class Niagara Falls, New York, a young widow and her 12-year old daughter decide to take a shortcut home through a wooded area after a 4th of July party. But there's a gang of drunken young men hanging out, high on meth and looking for trouble. What follows is awful. The woman is left unconscious and bleeding but her young daughter manages to escape and get help. It seems like an open and shut case. But even though most of men are arrested, the town turns on the woman. "She had it coming," is the way they look at it.

Much of the book is written from the point of view of the 12-year old girl. Our heart goes out to her as she realizes that her childhood ended on that awful night. What follows is a nightmare as her schoolmates taunt her and threaten her mother. There's a policeman, however, who was the first to discover the victims. As he watches the court system humiliate the woman and her daughter, he is enraged enough to take justice into his own hands.

This book is a mere 154 small pages and is more a novella than a novel. It packs a terrific punch though. From the very first sentence, I was captivated, and read it at a breathless pace and cringed to hear about the horrors of the justice system for rape victims. This is especially true in a small town where everybody knows everybody else and the families of the rapists turn against the victim.

Joyce Carol Oates is a prolific writer and, through the years, I have enjoyed many of her novels. I look forward to reading many more.

Don't Do With Me as You Will 23 janvier 2004
Par MICHAEL ACUNA - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Over the years, Joyce Carol Oates has used the short novel form as a way to expiate her literary and personal demons; subjects she only touches upon in her more ?serious? novels. In ?Rape, A Love Story? we have the horrible gang rape of Teena Maguire witnessed by her daughter, Bethie. Much of ?Rape? reads like a police report or something you might watch on Court TV. The writing is very spare, direct, and journalistically precise: ??the woman had to be drunk, high on coke herself, partying since early evening and by midnight you can figure the state she was in, how the hell could Teena Maguire even recognize who had sex with her? And how many??
The Love story angle of the title is of course not a straight ahead, direct man-to woman one but one involving a Niagara Falls Policeman, Dromoor, who finds Teena at the crime scene and who takes it upon himself to become her avenging Angel: ?A gun excited him. It was a good feeling. Quickened his pulse so he could actually feel it. Sometimes a tinge in the groin.? .
?Rape? is not a treatise on rape, per se, nor is it wholly a comment on the tendency of society to place blame on the victim. What it is, is a serious commentary on the randomness of crime: crime that is too often fueled by drugs and alcohol. More imprtantly though it is about the devastating personal effect crime has on the victim and the family of the victim.
Like ?Zombie,? The Rise of Life on Earth? and last years ?Beasts,? ?Rape? is out to make a point about a very specific subject. Oates doesn?t waste any time getting there and uses very few words in the process. ?Rape? is not a major Oates work but it is an interesting, often pathetic and emotionally aware one. And as such it is of interest to all of her fans that crave a quick Oates fix before the next full length novel.
