    Chanel?s story has captured the eye of the nation and has further uncovered the vile lack of justice that exists when rape and sexual assault occur (to this day, we still have prominent news outlets referring to Turner as the ?Stanford Swimmer?). But I think memoirs like this hav...

    I still remember what a punch to the gut it was to read the victim impact statement from "Emily Doe" at Brock Turner's sentencing. Despite the fact that Brock Turner was actually caught in the act of sexually assaulting her, and despite the fact that he was found unanimously guilty on...

    I still remember reading her statement back in 2016 and the feelings it evoked so I cannot even imagine how much more powerful and impactful this would be ...

    2019.09.25 I've calmed down a bit since I wrote my very short letter/review to Chanel last night. I'm still raw and emotional, though, but I feel that I managed to type up something a little more like a review. But how do you review a book like this? "I liked the part where she tal...

    This is the memoir of the woman who was raped by Brock Turner. She remained anonymous in the initial report but now she has come forward not just with a name but also with a story. I think I need to read this. ...

    I know this won't be an easy read but I have to read this. I still saw articles yesterday when this book was announced titled stuff like "Victim of Stanford swimmer Brock Turner" so I've made it my life goal to be Philip DeFranco and relentlessly say "convicted rapist" and "Brock Turne...

    I have no words. I was moved to tears and anger so many times while reading this book. I don't know why in the year 2019 women are still fighting this battle. Chanel Miller is one brave woman, I can not even begin to imagine or put into word her bravery. I have so much to say, but I fe...

    Before I start my review about this book and my thoughts on Chanel's writing, I want to discuss about what happened. Cue thoughts below in a long intro. Before her statement went viral on Buzzfeed, I actually read about what happened in 2015 because the Stanford college newspaper wrote...

    I read this entire book in one sitting. Chanel Miller has such a raw and powerful voice that carries us step by step through her horrifying experience. I felt like I was her. Like I'd slipped into her skin. That's how intimate her writing is. Her story made me cry. Her story made me an...

    Powerful but drones on I remember when this was in the news and as a Me Too, was very angry at Brock about using "the poor jock whose life was over because of being accused of rape." I'm glad I read your book. Very informative on the degrading legal system. What I didn't like wa...

    I vividly remember the story of two guys on bicycles who stopped a Stanford freshman from further sexually assaulting an unresponsive, half naked woman, behind a dumpster. This in her story. Her writing is elegant, powerful, searing, unapologetic and masterful. This book offers man...

    Chanel, I applaud you for telling your story your way. You waited until you were ready then you told it with details and clarity. You didn?t try to make yourself look good by minimizing your missteps prior to the assault. You just laid it out there and proceeded to tell your truth. Y...

    Just finished Chanel Miller?s memoir (& manifesto) ?Know My Name?, and WOW. We knew Chanel Miller was a powerful writer, when we read her victim impact statement on Buzzfeed, on Facebook, picked up by newspapers, and trending around the world, a few years ago, but this bo...

    I have a deep respect for Chanel Miller. ...

    I read this entire book in one sitting. Chanel Miller has such a raw and powerful voice that carries us step by step through her horrifying experience. I felt like I was her. Like I'd slipped into her skin. That's how intimate her writing is. Her story made me cry. Her story made me an...

    Powerful but drones on I remember when this was in the news and as a Me Too, was very angry at Brock about using "the poor jock whose life was over because of being accused of rape." I'm glad I read your book. Very informative on the degrading legal system. What I didn't like wa...

    No words....wow. Just no words. ...

    ALL THE STARS. Seriously. All. the. Freaking. Stars. ?What was unique about this crime, was that the perpetrator could suggest the victim experienced pleasure and people wouldn't bat an eye. There's no such thing as a good stabbing or bad stabbing, consensual murder or nonconsen...

    I vividly remember the story of two guys on bicycles who stopped a Stanford freshman from further sexually assaulting an unresponsive, half naked woman, behind a dumpster. This in her story. Her writing is elegant, powerful, searing, unapologetic and masterful. This book offers man...

    Chanel, I applaud you for telling your story your way. You waited until you were ready then you told it with details and clarity. You didn?t try to make yourself look good by minimizing your missteps prior to the assault. You just laid it out there and proceeded to tell your truth. Y...

    This book was absolutely amazing and devastating at the same time. You could feel her pain throughout every word. Though I would typically read a book like this in a day or two, I continuously had to put it down and take a breath as it was difficult to read such an emotional testimony....

    We are a society obsessed with monsters. We track mass murderers like athletes, each snuffed life another tally added to their total stats. Serial killers receive their own classification, often including sexual transgressions. They?re followed and discussed, known by name, number of...

    It is hard to put into words what "Know My Name" has done for me. As an English major and creative writer, I am enamored by the artistry Chanel possesses-- a skill I immediately noticed when reading her statement published by Buzzfeed and appreciate even more in her beautiful book. The...

    Honestly one of the Best/Worst books I have read. This young lady is so articulate and so profound that I enjoyed reading her memoir even when the topic was so very difficult to hear. The book not only goes into her victimization but the eventual effects on her family, her relationship...

    Content notes: She discusses the suicide clusters at Gunn High, the mass shooting in Isla Vista (she attended Gunn and UCSB when those incidents occurred), and, of course, her own assault in specific, heartbreaking detail. "He was the one who lost everything. I was just the nobody i...

    Quick review for a read I took my time with for a number of reasons. I'll get to that in just a moment. Here are just a few things I loved about this book: I loved that it was narrated by the author in the audio version. I loved Miller's narrative writing style, which is detailed, h...

    Best book of the year. More thoughts to come. ...

    KNOW MY NAME is the recent memoir from Chanel Miller ? also known as Emily Doe during the Stanford rape case against Brock Turner. While she remained anonymous throughout the trial, she is now telling her side of the story through this powerful book. As you might know, this case beca...

    "??? ??? ???? ???????? ???? ?????? ??? ??? ???? ???? ???." 5/5 stars "?????? ??? ???????? ??...

    This was by far the best and most impactful, life changing book I have read this year. It?s the memoir of the victim of the Stanford sexual assault case. This is a firsthand account of the day by day that follows the years after a sexual assault. She is open and honest, philosophical...

    ?There have been numerous times I have not brought up my case because I do not want to upset anybody or soul the mood. Because I want to preserve your comfort. Because I have been told that what I have to say is too dark, too upsetting, too targeting, too triggering, let?s tone it ...

    I vividly remember the story of two guys on bicycles who stopped a Stanford freshman from further sexually assaulting an unresponsive, half naked woman, behind a dumpster. This in her story. Her writing is elegant, powerful, searing, unapologetic and masterful. This book offers man...

    Chanel, I applaud you for telling your story your way. You waited until you were ready then you told it with details and clarity. You didn?t try to make yourself look good by minimizing your missteps prior to the assault. You just laid it out there and proceeded to tell your truth. Y...

    This book was absolutely amazing and devastating at the same time. You could feel her pain throughout every word. Though I would typically read a book like this in a day or two, I continuously had to put it down and take a breath as it was difficult to read such an emotional testimony....

    We are a society obsessed with monsters. We track mass murderers like athletes, each snuffed life another tally added to their total stats. Serial killers receive their own classification, often including sexual transgressions. They?re followed and discussed, known by name, number of...

    It is hard to put into words what "Know My Name" has done for me. As an English major and creative writer, I am enamored by the artistry Chanel possesses-- a skill I immediately noticed when reading her statement published by Buzzfeed and appreciate even more in her beautiful book. The...

    Honestly one of the Best/Worst books I have read. This young lady is so articulate and so profound that I enjoyed reading her memoir even when the topic was so very difficult to hear. The book not only goes into her victimization but the eventual effects on her family, her relationship...

    Chanel?s story has captured the eye of the nation and has further uncovered the vile lack of justice that exists when rape and sexual assault occur (to this day, we still have prominent news outlets referring to Turner as the ?Stanford Swimmer?). But I think memoirs like this hav...

    I still remember what a punch to the gut it was to read the victim impact statement from "Emily Doe" at Brock Turner's sentencing. Despite the fact that Brock Turner was actually caught in the act of sexually assaulting her, and despite the fact that he was found unanimously guilty on...

    I still remember reading her statement back in 2016 and the feelings it evoked so I cannot even imagine how much more powerful and impactful this would be ...

    2019.09.25 I've calmed down a bit since I wrote my very short letter/review to Chanel last night. I'm still raw and emotional, though, but I feel that I managed to type up something a little more like a review. But how do you review a book like this? "I liked the part where she tal...

    This is the memoir of the woman who was raped by Brock Turner. She remained anonymous in the initial report but now she has come forward not just with a name but also with a story. I think I need to read this. ...

    I know this won't be an easy read but I have to read this. I still saw articles yesterday when this book was announced titled stuff like "Victim of Stanford swimmer Brock Turner" so I've made it my life goal to be Philip DeFranco and relentlessly say "convicted rapist" and "Brock Turne...

    I have no words. I was moved to tears and anger so many times while reading this book. I don't know why in the year 2019 women are still fighting this battle. Chanel Miller is one brave woman, I can not even begin to imagine or put into word her bravery. I have so much to say, but I fe...

    Before I start my review about this book and my thoughts on Chanel's writing, I want to discuss about what happened. Cue thoughts below in a long intro. Before her statement went viral on Buzzfeed, I actually read about what happened in 2015 because the Stanford college newspaper wrote...

    Clear-eyed, funny, essential account from a woman you'd be lucky to call a friend. ...

    Just finished Chanel Miller?s memoir (& manifesto) ?Know My Name?, and WOW. We knew Chanel Miller was a powerful writer, when we read her victim impact statement on Buzzfeed, on Facebook, picked up by newspapers, and trending around the world, a few years ago, but this bo...

    I have a deep respect for Chanel Miller. ...

    I read this entire book in one sitting. Chanel Miller has such a raw and powerful voice that carries us step by step through her horrifying experience. I felt like I was her. Like I'd slipped into her skin. That's how intimate her writing is. Her story made me cry. Her story made me an...

    Powerful but drones on I remember when this was in the news and as a Me Too, was very angry at Brock about using "the poor jock whose life was over because of being accused of rape." I'm glad I read your book. Very informative on the degrading legal system. What I didn't like wa...

    Quick review for a read I took my time with for a number of reasons. I'll get to that in just a moment. Here are just a few things I loved about this book: I loved that it was narrated by the author in the audio version. I loved Miller's narrative writing style, which is detailed, h...
