Rage: A Love Story

A National Book Award Finalist offers an intense portrait of an abusive relationship.

Johanna is steadfast, patient, reliable; the go-to girl, the one everyone can count on. But always being there for others can’t give Johanna everything she needs—it can’t give her Reeve Hartt.

Reeve is fierce, beautiful, wounded, elusive; a flame that draws Johanna’s fluttering moth. Johann

Reeve is fierce, beautiful, wounded, elusive; a flame that draws Johanna’s fluttering moth. Johanna is determined to get her, against all advice, and to help her, against all reason. But love isn’t always reasonable, right?

In the precarious place where attraction and need collide, a teenager experiences the dark side of a first love, and struggles to find her way into a new light.

    It wasn’t so much that reading this was painful for me, it was the fact that it seemed like such a rough, tiring journey for nothing. I’ll quote Ketchum: ‘…despite Rage being a painfully realistic portrayal of abuse, and the darker side of LGBT culture, this book left me with a bad taste in my mouth.’ It’s the same thoughts I felt after the novels completion.

    The premise is already thick with deleterious possibilities: a compassionate 18-year-old Johanna, besieged by tragedies of loss and wave

    The premise is already thick with deleterious possibilities: a compassionate 18-year-old Johanna, besieged by tragedies of loss and wavering relationships, falls for the already hazardous personality of Reeve Hartt, the perturbing elder of the autistic boy ‘Robbie’ whom Johanna is helping graduate. Johanna has always idolised Reeve from the beginning, discerning that Reeve is her destiny, frequently taking us readers into her fantasy realm named ‘Joyland’: somewhat lucid dreams in which primarily blissful events transpire concerning Johanna’s ill-suited longing for Reeve. Thrown in with this are drifting characters that assume some part in the story, Johanna’s constantly-varying-role-as-best-friend Novak, her distant and tragic sister Tessa (accompanied by her husband Martin) and various other personalities that hover here and there.

    Now, all credibility to Peters for writing about abusive relationships in women. That is an admirable thing and something that should be made aware of in modern society; it’s not always men who are the culprits of abuse. So kudos, Peters, kudos.

    HOWEVER, that in itself doesn’t make this novel interesting enough to read. I get it, it’s a poignant tale that involves broken characters and a sorrowful storyline. Written beautifully it might have been a heartfelt novel, but the colloquialism was off putting for me. I thought some ‘takes’ of Joyland were depicted ethereally with captivating abilities, but that was as far as it went for me personally.

    On the other hand, going back to the theme of abuse;
    ‘By afternoon, the bruising has spread down my whole left cheek. It symbolizes something – trust? Intimacy? You can trust me to take what you dole out, Reeve. I gaze into the mirror and think This is a phase of our love. We’re taking it to the next level.’
    I immediately awarded a star to this book just for that small passage. In all its aberrancy, disgust and mere foolery, it’s one of the most poignant perspectives of someone in an abusive relationship (in my opinion). It didn’t – of course – justify why she was going through it, but it certainly gave some sort of explanation as to why she was enduring the constant violence.

    Now arguably the most basic of points that irked me was the relationship. Somehow, through some bizarre, unexplained manner, Johanna has become almost ensconced by Reeve’s presence and seems to rapidly yearn for her comfort, which we are forced to accept almost immediately (though no explanation is given). Now, Reeve falling for Johanna is something that we as readers transcend yet can’t possibly understand. Or at least, for me I couldn’t. Whether or not it was – from the beginning – plainly manipulative on Reeve’s part, or some other sort of overpowering desire to dominate a weaker being is unknown, but regardless, it seemed overly brash and hurriedly fashioned.

    So alright, not very realistic – we can go with that. Henceforth, why didn’t we, as readers, deserve an outrageously dramatic, unbelievable ending concerning Johanna’s and Reeve’s relationship? Quoting Ketchum again, it ‘left me with a bitter aftertaste’ because the ending was (for me) so lukewarm and vague. Is Johanna’s harrowing endurance doomed to accompany her for many years to come, spanning from her desire to be near Reeve? Or have we seen some sort of passive resistance, an epiphany of the prior ludicrousness she let herself be put through? Truth is, we’re left unsure. We don’t know, and the truthfully, I myself wasn’t that particularly interested in finding out anyway.

    In full: not my cup of tea. Alright in some parts, little bit of drama here and there, a few interesting characters (I’d analyse Reeve’s personality to death) but not something I’ll likely read again. My rating stands at 2.
