it was ok
bookshelves: ugh

I read the other reviews of this book, and everyone else seemed to love it.
When I finished this book, I just sat there and thought, "wait...what just happened?" The two different scenarios of what could've happened to Anna while she was missing really confused me - couldn't Dunant have just picked one and expanded on it more? There seemed to be way too many holes in the two stories, especially the kidnapping scenario. The character of the kidnapper was definitely not developed enough, and I didn't understand most of his motives. That's really as detailed I can get without giving away major plot points.
I think this story would've been really interesting if Dunant had just chosen one of the scenarios and wrote about it in greater detail. As it was, the book was just confusing and I didn't see the point of it.
That being said, I really enjoyed Dunant's other two books, The Birth of Venus and In the Company of the Courtesan.
