Book Club Friday-- A Stolen Life.
My Thoughts: This book was so sad to read. I can hardly believe that this even happened, but I know it did. I liked that she peppered in some of her thoughts now thinking back on her ordeal as she's describing what happened. It's not the best written book, but that's not really its purpose. Even now, about a month after I finished this book, I can't get over the lapses in court supervision that allowed this man to do this for such a long time, not to mention the bizarre turn of events that led to her discovery. Not to mention the mental and emotional trauma she must have had in order to not escape when she had multiple opportunities to do so. It was a fascinating book that took me less than 48 hours to read. I can't really say I'd recommend it as a good read unless you're particularly interested in the subject, but it definitely held my attention and kept me reading.
