Book Review: See What You Made Me Do

See What You Made Me Do

by Jess Hill

Review by Alex P

Everyone says this about books, but in this case it’s genuinely true: everyone should read this book! It’s one of the most important books I’ve ever read. It approaches domestic violence from all fronts in a truly easy to understand way. From first person accounts of intimate partner violence, to laws and policies that make it impossible for someone to leave their abusive partner (let alone seek justice). It encompasses the influence colonisation and racism have on Aboriginal people and domestic violence, and how Aboriginal victims are likely to get arrested when reporting violence, rather than get the support they need. No stone is left unturned in this book, it teaches you about elements of domestic violence you would never even think of. It’s engaging, infuriating, and important for everyone to read
