From the comfort of my sofa

I just like to read! There is no greater pleasure than a peaceful house and a good book. I will read most genres but not sure I have the imagination to really "get" some science fiction and fantasy.

"Oh no" moments rather than "OMG" moments!

I want very much to give this 3.5 stars.

An interesting book as from the outset we know what is happening with the child who has been abducted.  I didn't find it particularly gripping but rather there was an overall sadness throughout the book that made me want to read on.  There were several points where I felt an emotional shock.  "Oh no" moments rather than "OMG" moments!  Definitely a thought-provoking read and an interesting change in perception from many other books of a similar type.
