Will get under your skin

This book has lots of good twists and will definitely get under one's skin (trigger warning!) but the voice bugged me. I had a hard time believing anyone, much less a woman with PTSD, would speak in such a bizarre jargony dialect.

Could have been better

The first act got tiring before moving to the second act. It's interesting, because while the narrator can speak of her fear, I didn't FEEL the terror like I should have. Comparing this to a book like "Room" by Emma Donaghue, where the narrator is completely oblivious to the dangers and my nerves were always on edge, this book fell short. I found myself more annoyed by the OCD abductor than afraid of him.

Glad to move onto act 2, things started to get interesting. However, in the end it just felt a little bit gimmicky and took away from any feelings of reality it may have had.

I enjoyed the story format, as told to Annie's psychiatrist, and her snarkiness. But given the subject matter, I should have walked away from this novel feeling much more disturbed than I did.
