    One thought on “Stolen”

    1. When I was a teenager, I remember watching a movie with my family and the couple onscreen kissed for the first time and of course five seconds later were sleeping together. My dad, trying to keep the morality of four teenage girls intact, complained about movies always doing that, making you root for something you didn't believe in. I remember thinking "it's just a movie; you're supposed to want that," because I had wanted it.Christopher is a smart woman. She realizes this power, that as an auth [...]

    2. This book completely reaffirmed my fascination with the beautiful land that is Australia.But the people who live there seem to want everyone to think it's a lot like this:Or this:Or even this:Gemma, just a regular 16 year old school girl, has been captured by a handsome and alluring young Australian man named Ty. Although Gemma seems to think so, it never feels like she's in any imminent danger, from Ty at least. From the environment - yes.The stakes and suspense don't seem that high, as I fully [...]

    3. "I made it," you said, gruffly, "for you."You shoved it onto my finger. It was roughly carved, shaped from a lump of something colourful and colda ring made entirely from a gemstone. It was beautiful. It glinted emerald greens and blood reds over my skin, and had tiny flecks of gold catching the light. I couldn't stop staring at it."Why?" I asked.You didn't answer that. Instead you touched the ring gently and looked piercingly at me, unsaid questions in your eyes.HOLY SHIT! I should not have rea [...]

    4. Spoilers… that’s it?Well, that was a shit fucking letter, wasn’t it? Can you even call that a letter? It’s just a recollection of everything that happened between Gemma and Ty. As if someone would be able to remember every conversation that had happened on every day for a month. It’s fine as a story, but I did not accept the letter concept. It reminds me of a certain Friends episode where Rachel and Ross are fighting and Rachel wrote him a letter.Ross: “I fell asleep!”Rachel: “Yo [...]

    5. Stolen is such a singular reading experience that its difficult to decide how I feel about it.Gemma is a sixteen year old English girl kidnapped by Ty and taken into the Western Australian outback where she is held prisoner.I had to give this book five stars for several reasons. One of the reasons is because it was so fantastically well written. Beautiful, touching, heart breaking and real. Christopher doesn't spare on the details both good and bad. Never before have I felt a book to be so real, [...]

    6. I just had a copy of STOLEN by Lucy Christopher put into my hands at ALA, and I am definitely, definitely sending a quote for them to use for the paperback edition. It’s a YA novel about a girl who is kidnapped from an airport by a crazy guy and taken to a shack in the Australian outback. The novel features1) crazy guy2) camels3) strong heroine4) poisonous snakes! (did you know that Australia is the only continent where species of poisonous snakes outnumbers non-poisonous ones?)5) hallucinatin [...]

    7. ----------------HYPERVENTILATING-------------------------------------AUGUST 2013 UPDATE--------------Look what I just saw on Lucy's FB:Lucy ChristopherIf I tell you I'm about to fly to San Diego to work on the screenplay of Stolen . would you be excited?Me gusta · · Compartir · 83 · Hace 3 minutos · OMFG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHERE CAN I BUY MY TICKETS????!!!! NEED THAT FILM LIKE YESTERDAY!!!!P.S. Sorry for updating an old review but this was soooooo good for me that I had to do it!----------- [...]

    8. So, the hype surrounding this bookI've read a few books on the topic of kidnapping now, and I can safely say this one is my least favorite so far. Firstly, the actual kidnapping that takes place just seems SO UNREALISTIC to me that I can't even take it. I find it really hard to believe that a 25 year old man could so effortlessly get a 16 year old girl who is drugged out of her mind through airport security with a fake passport. Just no. That would not happen. The one thing I enjoyed about this [...]

    9. Five stars. I really don't know how to feel right now. I feel so sad, but that isn't the right word to explain how I feel about this book. It's so complicated. I hated some of the moments in this book- could not even begin to imagine myself feeling even the slightest bit of empathy for certain characters. Yet, something about this book pulls you in and flips you over. Before you know it, you're viewing this book in an entirely different light than when you started it. Suddenly, your eyes have op [...]

    10. I'm still crying as I type this.This review will very likely be brief and will very likely be a hot mess, because . . . I just can't believe how gorgeous this single piece of literature is. I can't believe it took me this long to read it. I'll definitely say it was worth the wait, though.It's been a while since I've read something that touched me this deeply. How this book is written just gutted me and left me breathless at times. Gemma was relatable because she was a real teenage girl. I would' [...]

    11. BR with my girl Pragya! I can't belive she feels nothing for Ty. How can you recover from a book that rips your heart out, destroys it, that it doesn't even feel like it ever belonged there in the first place? How can you recover from a book that makes your heart feel wrong and heavy?Well, you don't.Stolen made me realize I had one of those things all those other humans have. A heart only for Ty of course.What I loved about this book was Ty. Yes I know what he did was wrong, but the way the auth [...]

    12. It is with sadness I am giving Stolen an "it was ok" 2-star rating. I expected to love this book. What's not to love? The premise was right up my alley - a psychological thriller, an exploration of Stockholm Syndrome, a story about a kidnapped person who finds herself emotionally attached to her captor. It's a treasure for a reader like me, fascinated by crazy and sick. But somehow Stolen didn't move me in any significant way.While I found the premise to be extremely interesting and pretty much [...]

    13. Okay I just finished this book and I need to take some deep breaths and calm down a little- alright, here it goes! Sixteen year old Gemma is at an airport coffee shop in Bangkok when she sees him. Ty is in his mid twenties. He looks familiar to her, something about his beautiful blue eyes, but she can’t place him. He buys her a coffee, they chat, then she starts to feel funny. She has been drugged. She is being kidnapped. Now, meet Ty and Gemma:When Gemma comes to, she is surprised. She isn’ [...]

    14. Final rating: 5/5 stars “How long will you keep me?" I asked.You shrugged. "Forever, of course.”ATTENTION PLEASE!!!This book is FANTASTIC. WHY? because it's UNIQUE, and it's not usual KIDNAPPING STORY. It's something else entirely, and it's WORTHY OF YOUR TIME.Stolen is also quite REALISTIC, CREEPY and EXCELLENT STORY. And, the one thing that made me love it is THE UNIQUE WAY OF WRITING. This is a letter a LETTER TO HER CAPTOR - LITERALLY. And it'sENDINGwas whati loved the most. This story a [...]

    15. You saw me before I saw you. In the airport, that day in August, you had that look in your eyes, as though you wanted something from me, as though you'd wanted it for a long time. No one had ever looked at me like that before, with that kind of intensity. It unsettled me, surprised me, I guess. Those blue, blue eyes, icy blue, looking back at me as if I could warm them up. They're pretty powerful, you know, those eyes, pretty beautiful too.So as you can read from the blurb, this book is written [...]

    16. ♥ 5 CAPTIVATINGLY BEAUTIFUL STARS. ♥"You saw me before I saw you"Where to even begin with a review on a story like thisLet me start off by saying that this was not an easy story to read. From the moment I started reading it, I felt like there were dark clouds looming over me and something bad was going to happen any minute. And I pretty much felt that way throughout the entire book, which explains exactly why I was so hesitant to start it at first. But in the end, I'm really glad I finally d [...]

    17. Wow!! What an emotional, gripping and addictive book! I was hooked to this story from the beginning and despite how I knew nothing good would come of it, I drove head on collision with the conclusion and was left with a wreckage of angst and sadness.But before I tell you how I really felt, excuse me a moment, while I self-reflectFelt an emotional pull toward the captor? Check.Believed that he deserved some semblance of happiness because of his past? Check.Recognized moments where the captor show [...]

    18. This book. I read it. And it gave me feels. Sometimes the narrative. Drove me crazy. Sometimes The Ty. Drove me crazy. Sometimes The Gemma. Drove me crazy. Sometimes The Camel. Made me laugh. Okay, in all seriousness, if anyone wants a test for how much “crazy” they have, this book is it. All you have to do is find a piece of paper and something to write with and start making strike marks for every scene in which Gemma should attempt to KILL Ty. I think I got up to 27 or so, with each murder [...]

    19. I literally just put down Stolen and my brain can't think. I just need to let this book sit and saturate into me, every part of me because it can and it will and I will let it. I do want to say, however, that Stolen was not what I expected. When I went into it, I was almost expecting an eventual romance, but there is none and I'm glad there isn't. Stolen is a novel of abduction, but it is also a novel of hope and faith and beauty. I only really fell in love with Stolen seven pages from the end; [...]

    20. You saw me before I saw you.[image error]This book was just WOW!I fell in love with the characters but mostly with the writing style.To be more specific , this book is written like a letter,a letter to her captor, which means that she is refering to him.This is very beautiful because the reader takes part in the story and the book is alive.Gemma never thought that a friendly stranger could harm her.The story begins when she is in a coffee shop at the airport.There she spots a familiar face but s [...]

    21. Did Idid I just experience secondhand Stockholm Syndrome through a book?Well, I'll be damned.(If only this were more realistic thriller than unrealistic romance.)

    22. My review and discussion is up! youtube/watch?v=ZgLruThis book has made my list of all-time favorite books! The premise is so unlike any book that I've ever read and so original in its format: a letter written to the kidnapper by the 16 year old girl who was kidnapped.The main character, Gemma, is a strong and capable girl who actually makes smart decisions after being kidnapped by Ty. This is so refreshing because, although she is terrified after being kidnapped by a man who has been stalking h [...]

    23. Pre-review:I must confess, I'm still in the middle of the book and I'm already at the verge of giving up. Stolen: A Letter to My Captor annoys me so much.At first I thought I'd like this story, because I'm deeply interested with Stockholm Syndrome and the conflicts between kidnapped victim and the kidnapperd not to mention I had also tried my hand on writing yaoi fanfic with similar themes. But so far the author had failed to get the job done. If Ms. Lucy Christopher didn't redeem her creation b [...]

    24. Favourite Quote: "Lets face it, you did steal me. But you saved my life too. And somewhere in the middle, you showed me a place so different and beautiful, I can never get it out of my mind. And I can't get you out of there either. You're stuck in my brain like my own blood vessels."Stolen is one huge emotional rollercoaster ride. It had my stomach all tied up in knots and made my heart ache but it was AMAZING. Truly, a stunning and thought provoking read. Lucy Christopher is a brilliant writer. [...]

    25. What would you do if you're abducted to the middle of nowhere?I hate deserts. I winced when Christopher described about the heat and the rawness of the desert. Why are we even talking about deserts?Why?Because in reality it's actually beautiful. It shows the vastness of the world, the rawness, the emptiness and the loneliness. I read this short story called the Tears of the Desert by Paulo Coelho. It's a story about this man who listens everyday to the sobbing of the desert and a missionary who [...]

    26. The proud Aussie chick inside me was majorly pissed off with this book.An English friend of mine (who thinks he's fecking hilarious BTW) recently developed his own slogan for Australian tourism:"Snakes. Spiders. Jellyfish. Weather. Australia - countless ways to get assfucked by nature"- D. CrowleySo you see, we're having a hard enough time AS IT IS to entice the world to visit us without Lucy Christopher raining on our awesome parade. Further thoughts on the actual story to follow shortly

    27. 4.5 StarsI’ve wanted to read Stolen for a long time. Sadly, it was pushed to the side so many times, but I’m glad I finally picked it up because it was a powerful and gripping read. All my nerves and emotions felt stretched tight while reading this, the tension high. I felt the zing of excitement as I turned the pages, both hoping for things to turn out one way and dreading if they did, as well. Sixteen year old Gemma is drugged and kidnapped from an airport and taken to the endless desert i [...]

    28. Beautiful. Evil, but beautiful. Evil because I now have Stockholm Syndrome. Beautiful because I didn't realise it was happening, the writing was so subtle yet engrossing and real. Gritty.I fell in love with Ty, the kidnapper. He was so kind, considerate and almost harmless really (Hello, Stockholm!). He'd saved Gemma's life so many times and eventually sacrificed his freedom for her. How can anyone not love him a little for that? I understood his motivations. He was lonely and had been badly tre [...]

    29. this is hands down one of my most favorite books I've ever readThe first time I read this was almost 4 years ago and at that time, I'm kind of ashamed to say that I didn't fully understand it. But now that I've reread it, I JUST WANT MORE FROM LUCY CHRISTOPHER. I have so many questions I wanna answered but at the same time, I don't wanna get answers. Do you get me? Like I wanna know what happened at the trial, how many years was Ty's sentence? Ugh. I'm not very good at writing reviews but I wann [...]

    30. Stolen was a powerful and fascinating read. It was a very intricate read and left me feeling like there were no easy answers.I liked Gemma, the main protagonist. She is strong and never really gives up trying to get free. I tried imagining the horror of being kidnapped and then brought to a place you have no idea how to even survive in without your captor. How life changing and traumatic that would be. I think that if the snake incident hadn’t happened, she likely would not have wanted to go b [...]
