This is a very creepy story. Its hard to stomach at times. I picked this book up after having read some previous books by this author and liked them. This book reminds me a of the book Room, but this story is more graphic and more disturbing. Its a hard one to get through, and its a story that will stick with you for sure.
I HATED THIS BOOK. I did not realize when I started listening to this book that it is all about a little boy who is stolen by a pedophile, sexually abused, and tortured. The man has a history of taking small boys and then killing them when they get too old for his taste. I kept reading in hopes of a happy ending, but there is none. Ms. Oates is an excellent writer, but far too often her subjects are very dark. This was way to painful for me. I don't know what the author accomplished by writing this book except to perhaps examine the psychology of a kidnapped child. Personally, if I wanted to experience this much pain I would simply go have an appendage amputated without annesthetic. MY OPINION: DO NOT READ THIS BOOK.
