Review: I liked this book. It was an interesting read that I finished pretty quickly. I thought the first half of the book dragged a little and was kind of slow but my curiosity kept me reading. Towards the end things picked up and turned into the exciting novel I had anticipated it would be. I was very surprised by the kidnapper and their story, the way that story played out was really interesting. I was convinced that I knew what was going to happen once all the surprises were revealed, even after I finished it I'm still not convinced that I'm wrong. Thats what I liked about it. I was involved and thinking about how the story was going to progress. Sadly, I kind of wish I had been right. I can't say I wasn't surprised by how it did end though.
I didn't really fele that connected with any of the characters. I was so focused on the plot I didn't really find the characters all that great. Of course there was a lot of character development and change towards the end. My favorite character was probably Max, even though he was hardly present. The moments where he was made me really like him and show that he really cares about Marnie. It did take a while for the story to become exciting but once it did I couldn't put it down. This is a good book for anyone who wants family drama and a pretty awesome plot.
