it was amazing
Read in October, 2011

Had every expectation of disliking this book on captivity, and set it aside for months even though it was a borrowed book. Finally cracked the cover and did not put it down. Not what I would call an exceptional read, but a most intriguing and thoughtful presentation, being from the perspective of a small child. Reality is experience based, and this was a great exemplar.

Despite the obvious post-reading obvious of "...well, what about XXX?" and "...hey, how about YYY?" it was a quality read that will linger in my head long after the routine novel disappears from memory. Highly recommended.
