it was ok

Read my longer review at

Eh, maybe it's because I just watched The OA, which was also a kidnapping story, but I didn't find this book to be very good. To me, it seemed just like an average mystery crime thriller, which isn't really my favorite. Nothing really exciting or unexpected happens, except in the epilogue, which didn't really make any sense if you consider the rest of the book. There was no element of surprise, as you knew she would be rescued since the story was told in a before/after perspective.

Despite being told from the point of view of three different characters, everyone had the same tone and voice. The dialogue was unrealistic. And I don't understand the romance at all. As the doctor says, it's Stockholm syndrome. Certainly has nothing to do with Gone Girl like the description claims. Just meh.
