's review
Aug 22, 2011

it was ok
bookshelves: mom-books, kidnapping
Read from November 26 to 27, 2011

This was definitely an interesting book, unlike one I have ever read before but for some reason I did not connect with the characters like I think I should have. I did not relate to the mother or the son, and I didn't find myself particularly caring what happened to them either way and I think this is because there is no real depth to any of the characters. Everything is one dimensional and factual, even when it doesn't make a lick of sense, but maybe that was the point of it, I don't know. I finished it because I was interested to know how it ended but I wouldn't read it again.
