Stolen

A girl gets stolen by a cute guy with seemingly good intentions and taken to the Australian outback. Much of the novel is written as a letter to the girl's captor after she escapes, and how she subsequently copes with form of Stockholm Syndrome.

Obviously, because of its subject matter, Stolen was a very gripping story to read (Christopher's an amazing author). However, since the book is essentially just a flashback, the beginning is a bit hard to get through since it takes a bit of exposition to get to the really dramatic scenes.

I think most people will enjoy this book. I found Stolen very interesting to read, especially the parts related to Stockholm Syndrome. It may be a bit hard to really get into at first, but in the end, I think it was a good read.
