I am so excited to announce I was able to finish another book this week! Obviously it was a shorter simple read since it only took me two evenings to finish it up. I chose to read a book that I had gotten free off Amazon awhile back. I am always looking at the free books and if one catches my eye I download. The one I chose to read was "Still Missing" by Chevy Stevens.
This book was interesting and depressing. I thought for sure after reading The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo I wanted to read something cheery and light but for some reason I chose this book. While the book was interesting, I would only recommend those who are interested in mysteries and murders check it out. It is somewhat hard to stomach the book and its completely sick and twister so for those interested be warned.
I should mention that I really like reading about and watching documentaries about murders and mysteries. It's very weird because I always am sickened by people and wanting something horrible to happen to the murderer or sicko but I still find myself interested. Well this book is definitely along those lines. This book is about a young woman who gets abducted and held in a cabin up on a mountain. Sound somewhat familiar?? The story of this young woman's abduction and being held against her will reminds of a combination of stories I've read on CNN or popular ones that have been broadcast on the news Nationally. Essentially it's all about her time being held by her captive and the emotional "rollercoaster" she goes through. Don't get me wrong the end has a twist but this book was very depressing to read.
Overall grade is a B. While I think the topic will always be considered depressing the writing was well done and the story never felt rushed to finish. Good job to Chevy Stevens for covering a sick topic as best someone could without being extremely gruesome.
