    weener: Living Dead Girl is a lot more graphic and disturbing than Stolen, but both are well-written, compelling tales of the relationship between kidnappers and their victims.

Ow. That sound is my head hurting after finishing this roller coaster ride of a book. I'm still not sure what I think. I didn't hate it but I can't bring myself to give it more than 2.5 stars which for some reason I chose to round down to 2. Ow. ( )

The book Stolen, written by Lucy Christopher tells the story of a girl, Gemma, who was kidnapped at an airport and brought to an isolated part of Australia. The guy, Ty, loves Gemma and created a place for them to live together. Ty expected Gemma to reciprocate mutual feelings but Gemma is reluctant at first. Gemma has contradicting feelings and takes actions that she feels is best. This story was very unique and I found it very interesting. I was unsure of how everything was going to play out and I like how it wasn’t very predictable. I would recommend this book to people who love an intriguing story related to captivity and love.

this is straight up a book about a girl who was kidnapped and taken away to the middle of the desert and the creepy, complicated, evolving relationship she develops with her captor. IT IS ALL VERY CREEPY AND COMPLICATED. I AM NOT JOKING: CREEPY AND COMPLICATED. it never turned sexual, THANK GOD, but just, uuuuuugh.

it's hard to say DAMN, I LOVED THIS BOOK because the subject matter is so rough and the narration difficult (it's written in the form of a letter to the captor), but the writing itself was fantastic and the language was gorgeous; it was compelling and evocative and I'm not sorry I read it, but I can't say I'm glad either. it will stick with me, though, and that's just as important.

A real page-turner and excellent voice. An unusual book. ( )

Stolen is an extremely cleverly written book. It's essentially a book about Stockholm Syndrome, written for a young adult audience, and its greatest feature is the way that Lucy Christopher takes the reader along on the same emotional ride experienced by protagonist Gemma. At the beginning of the book, Ty – her captor – comes across as creepy and unappealing but, as he reveals more of himself and more of the past that led them both to the Australian outback, he becomes a surprisingly sympathetic character. I never found him truly likeable, because there always remains something dangerous about him, but many other readers have been completely won over by the end of the novel. Manipulating one's readers in such a fashion takes a lot of writing skill. Although Stolen has its faults, I came away from reading it with a healthy respect for the author's talent. I love a book that can mess with my head.

As suggested above, however, Stolen isn't flawless. At times, it feels over-long. There is a lot of description of the Australian outback and I'm not sure whether I'm just jaded to that, as someone who lives in Australia and has been fed images and romanticised perspectives of the outback all my life, or whether the description really does take over a little at times. For the first half of the book, I wasn't very engaged at all. I kept reading because the premise interested me and the writing style is elegant and clever, but I wasn't invested in the characters or their actions. I think the beginning of the change in Gemma's attitude towards Ty also marked the beginning of my greater interest in the novel. Perhaps it was a case of my needing more movement in terms of character development and plot or perhaps it just comes down to me being in a more receptive mood by the time I reached the second half of the book. Either way, my near-indifference was not lasting and I definitely enjoyed the latter half of the novel and the book as a completed whole.

I think that's really how Stolen should be assessed. Its power doesn't lie in its characters or even in the artfully described and ever-present setting. The true power of Christopher's work is its ability to draw its readers in and to make them feel a little of what Gemma is feeling. Her confusion became my confusion. And that's the sign of a good author.
