Asking For It Book Review Asking For It by Louis O'neill is about an ego maniac protagonist named Emma O'Donovan. O'neill is known for writing about societies problems in a twisted fiction land. O'neill has also written, Only Ever Yours. Asking For It takes place in a small Irish town, in the eyes of Emma O'Donovan. Emma believes she's the most perfect person and, no one can reach the level of beauty she's at. When something tragic happens her best friends turn their back on her as her world gets completely torn apart. From beginning to end this book is a complete brain buster. This book strongly gets 8 out of 10 stars, Asking For It reviews the sick twisted reality of society. This book is very gruesome but realistic. This book compares to "13 Reasons Why", what happens to Hannah Baker is similar to what happened to Emma. When Hannah got raped it tore her world apart, same for Emma. Overall, this book is a good representation of the sick twisted society of today. No matter what the truth is, people believe what they want to believe.
