Is it possible to both enjoy a book and be pretty depressed by it? I say yes, after having read “Nobody’s Victim”. This book reads like a thriller as Goldberg, a lawyer, describes helping various clients fight back against “psychos, stalkers, pervs, and trolls”, most of whom commit or add to their crimes via the internet. As we all well know, the law has not kept up with technology and what people can do with it. For instance, if your ex-boyfriend took photos or videos of you, he owns the copyright and can do whatever he wants with them. Unfortunately, (but maybe not surprisingly) all of the offenders mentioned in the book are male, and most (but not all) of the victims are female. Goldberg devotes a section of the book to why this is—are men just more powerful and already corrupt or does power corrupt men? A warning that the stories in this book are awful, and don’t make for lighthearted reading, but there is (some) justice for the victims and you really end up rooting for Goldberg and the work she does.
