Stolen: A Letter to My Captor

Stolen: A Letter to My Captor - Lucy Christopher This is actually been difficult for me. On the one hand, I can see why the book gets 5-star ratings. It's clever how the author makes us feel like we have Stockholm syndrome too, makes us feel uncertain and confused about how we feel. Or at least I can see how some people can be unsure of how they feel. For me, Ty did not bewitch me as he seems to have everyone else. Yeah as far as kidnappers go and, considering how things could have turned out if it had been your run of the mill rapist or murderer, Ty is not all that bad. I was not bewitched because he was written to be attractive. Which makes me wonder if Gemma would have felt differently if it had been some unattractive man. But no I still saw him as a disturbed kidnapper I mean he stalked her when she was 10 and he was almost nineteen! We call that a pedophile where I come from. The first 75% of this book is boring. I take that back, the beginning isn't boring, but when they get into the desert, Snoozefest. It's not until 75% through the book that it gets interesting again. I dozed off a lot trying to read this book. Overall I thought it was meh.... It was just okay. But I can see how people would love it.
It is something I would recommend to people simply because I understand that this is probably something unique to me.
