I was really disappointed in this book. It focused too much on the victims, you never understood the motivations of any of the characters. You never got beyond the girls, who never seemed really bothered about being kidnapped!

I enjoyed reading the beginning of this book anticipating the real story of the girls' kidnapping. However, I came to see towards the end many questions were left unanswered. We know the girls were kidnapped, but there is no real story behind the kidnapper or why he did it. The book is really about how the kidnapping changed the girls and who they became after it.

I really liked the first half of the novel simply because I found reading about grown up kidnapped victims strangely fascinating. My biggest problem with the book was the ending. There is little resolution and you left with a thousand unanswered questions. After finishing, I was left feeling unsatisfied.
