How 'Bout Them Reads: Still Missing

Here's my predicament I want to talk about this book and how much I loved it because I truly did, but I don't want to give anything away and so much of this book is built on each other, so I'm just going to have to go with the abridged version.

via
Annie is a successful Realtor that is very content with her life and how things are going for her. One hot, August afternoon she has a house showing that is somewhat slow, and just as she is packing up for the day a man drives up. He wants to see the house. She feels like she has a chance of getting this house sold with this man, who was clean-cut and well-put together. But suddenly things go awful when he shoves a gun into the small of her back and forces her into his van. He drugs her and when she wakes, she finds herself in a sealed cabin. The doors and windows are locked. She is completely trapped with no idea where she is. Over the course of the next year, she faces nightmares she had only ever seen in movies and read in books.

The story of what happened to her over the course of a year is being told through her session of therapy throughout the book, so somehow she has escaped. But things aren't as resolved as she might have hoped. She may not be living in the cabin in the mountains anymore, but she certainly wasn't free.

If I could recommend one book to you this would be it. I have read 40 so far this year and many more before that, and this book is one I highly recommend. I read all 340 pages in two days. It was almost impossible to put down. It was frightening at times, sickening at others. The story was realistic and truthful. Things aren't happy and easy. The characters are deep and well-written. I could sing a hundred praises about this book because it was thrilling, exciting, sad, and satisfying - so basically everything you could hope for in a book.
