Still Missing

Item Details

On the day she was abducted, Annie O'Sullivan, a thirty-two year old realtor, had three goals-sell a house, forget about a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever- patient boyfriend. The open house is slow, but when her last visitor pulls up in a van as she's about to leave, Annie thinks it just might be her lucky day after all. Interwoven with the story of the year Annie spent as the captive of psychopath in a remote mountain cabin, which unfoldsthrough sessions with her psychiatrist, is a second narrative recounting events following her escape-her struggle to piece her shattered life back together and the ongoing police investigation into the identity of her captor. The truth doesn't always set you free. Still Missing is that rare debut find - a shocking, visceral, brutal and beautifully crafted debut novel.

Great first novel for this author. I have to say I was disturbed by the topic because I had never read a book that described this kind of abuse. I was kept guessing until almost the end. Well done Chevy Stevens.

"On a beautiful sunny day, Vancouver Island realtor Annie O'Sullivan shows a house to one last friendly prospective buyer - and is kidnapped at gunpoint. Held captive in a remote cabin and made to follow rules that dictate when she can eat, bathe, and even speak, Annie is brutalised physically and psychologically for a year before she can escape. Now, in sessions with her therapist, Annie shares the story of her trauma, her escape, and her ongoing fear and anger, for her kidnapper has yet to be found. Psychologically intense, this 2011 winner of the ITW Award for Best First Novel is "sure to leave readers looking over their shoulders for a smiling stranger" (Booklist)."

WOW - what a thrilling story, it gave me heart palpitations. But be warned that the story is brutal/scary. You meet Annie and she is in the process of working through her issues...one session at a time. You get to know her and her story as she retells it to her shrink, as well as, what she is currently going through in her life and emotionally. Loved how the scenes are present and then you go through the rabbit hole/blurs into the another time, then the author brings you right back again. Thoroughly enjoyed reading!

I thought the concept was excellent, and a great first effort for a new novelist. I would have liked the ending to be just a bit less abrupt. I felt the first two thirds of the book were great, then it sort of fell off into a bad tv reality script. Overall, though, I was glad to give her next book a try--it was superior!

The concept of this book is a great idea - the story line and the point of view from which it is told is an interesting approach to the story. However, the writing is mediocre at best. This book is just ok. It could have been an absolutely fantastic and unique book if the writing had better developed the characters, which would have made certain plot points better developed. You understand why characters make the actions they do, but only on a basic level, not because the author has developed the character well enough to explain the actions. That all being said, if you want a quick and easy read, it's still a good story!

Though Anne does escape her harrowing ordeal, it still haunts her. If you have triggers for this sort of thing, walk away from this book. This book is very well written. Chevy Stevens has done well in creating a narrative that is both intense and unforgettable. I found the book hard to read and was unable to finish it. If dark, oppressive, and intense is what you like to read then this book is an excellent candidate for your reading list.
