Look the Other Way by Michael Mohan Joshua

‘Look the Other Way’ is a book project written by co-authors Michael Mohan Joshua and Patrick Foley.  It is a work of fiction, but aims for a nonfiction feel.

Over the year, Michael Mohan Joshua kept editing the story into what it is today, with a snapshot of modern society.

With a total of 164 pages, ‘Look the Other Way’ offers daily news of sexual assault and that is prevalent throughout society. The book teaches us that it is no longer acceptable to look the other way, and that through education and communication, people out there can change society in a better way.  It reminds us that domestic assault and sexual violence are everywhere around the world, and in every community, and that turning a blind eye only serves to further traumatize victims and embolden abusers.

Reading this book, and turning one page after another, I could feel that the story’s moral is a strong one with a guided light throughout all its story.  I also enjoyed this book that it’s in the form of a screenplay – same feeling you get while watching a drama series on a television. 

The book’s story is about Police Lt. Frank Murphy who is used to covering up for his 24-year-old younger brother, Tom, a lovable screw-up. Tom is pursuing an MBA degree in Arizona, but he’s come home to Briarwood, Michigan, for a friend’s wedding. Soon, Frank has to pick up his drunk, naked, and unconscious brother from the house of Tom’s longtime friend Megan, who’s clearly rattled by something that Tom did, although she makes no formal complaint. The next morning, however, Tom claims he can’t remember what happened, and the story goes on and on with exciting twists.

It tackles the severity of sexual assault in an unflinching way, and it does a particularly good job of showing how quickly some men will try to laugh off or cover up terrible crimes of their peers.  The story’s language is in English format, with an idiom earthy.  As the title indicates itself, the book presents an insight into the plague of escalating sexual predation and further underscores the sad reality that such predatory behavior is facilitated by the apathy of society at large.

All in all, ‘Look the Other Way’ makes a fluent read and retains the attention of the reader from beginning through the all the end, especially with its surprising and unexpected conclusion.
