Editorial Reviews

Review

“Excellent. . . . Krakauer doesn’t just tell the story of these crimes. As he has done so brilliantly in his other books . . . he sets the story firmly in the context of social history.” —The Boston Globe

“An important, difficult and timely subject. . . . Meticulously reported, fascinating and deeply disturbing.” —USA Today

“Jon Krakauer began his career as an author of taut, finely reported outdoor adventures; seven books later, he emerges as the conscience of a nation.” —The Christian Science Monitor

Missoula will be a touchstone of any future correction to the rape culture we live in.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Jon Krakauer began his career as an author of taut, finely reported outdoor adventures; seven books later, he emerges as the conscience of a nation. . . . Investigative reporters—and Krakauer is one of the craft’s finest practitioners, diligent, dogged, and artful—are nothing so much as trial attorneys with pens rather than costly silk ties.” —The Christian Science Monitor

“Compelling. . . . Meticulous. . . . Krakauer is a writer committed above all else to asking difficult questions. . . . [A] timely and important book.” —Los Angeles Times

“Meticulously reported, fascinating and deeply disturbing. . . . By probing the specific, Krakauer illuminates upsetting generalities. . . . Krakauer—a journalist who is also a compelling writer—artfully keeps the books from becoming a compendium of facts. . . . It’s an important, difficult and timely subject.” —USA Today

“Compelling. . . . Clear and dispassionate, offering level-headed, in-depth reportage.” —Chicago Tribune 

“A narrative nonfiction page-turner. . . . Krakauer skillfully strengthens his sources’ recollections without taking away their agency.” —Buzzfeed

“A devastating exposé of colleges and local law enforcement. . . . A substantive deep dive into the morass of campus sex crimes, where the victim is too often treated like the accused.” —Entertainment Weekly

“A good and needed thing. . . . Powerful. . . . Krakauer has done a great service by taking on this subject.” —Newsweek

“Krakauer exposes the cavalier attitude of police, prosecutors and football fans toward victims of acquaintance rape in the Montana town full of fanatics for the University of Montana football team.” —The Denver Post

“A clear and undeniable picture of a broken system. . . . Krakauer’s straightforward writing resists sensationalism. . . . This is a book we all needed.” —Missoula Independent

“A harrowing read. . . . Missoula stands as both a reminder of the forces arrayed against women raising their voices, and of the tremendous power of the telling of their stories.” —The Toronto Star

“Krakauer’s evocative reporting, honed to a fine edge of anger, vividly conveys the ordeal of victims and their ongoing psychological dislocations. . . . A hard-hitting true-crime exposé that looks underneath the he-said-she-said to get at the sexist assumptions that help cover up and enable these crimes.” —Publishers Weekly (starred)

“Riveting. . . . A raw and difficult but necessary read.” —Kirkus Reviews
