I'm torn between 3 or 4 stars on this book. I didn't enjoy the characters at all and the writing was only okay. The story line and the connection between captive and kidnapper was really well done and made up for some of what the book lacks. I enjoyed reading it and got through it quickly, which is always a good sign of a captivating book. I would recommend this book solely for the look into the dynamics of the kidnapper situation, which is interesting enough to keep you reading more.
