    This stunning debut novel from Australian author Lucy Christopher generated considerable buzz for its nonstop suspense and breathtaking imagery. Sixteen-year-old Gemma is on a layover at Bangkok Airport, headed to Vietnam with her parents. Then the vaguely familiar Ty drugs Gemma’s drink and steals her away. Her head swirling in confusion, Gemma soon finds herself fighting to survive in the unforgiving Outback.

    Story
    Would you listen to Stolen again? Why?

    Yes...the story was wonderful. It kept you hooked from the beginning. It was enticing with the mixed emotions that it gave you throughout the story...just like Gemma's feelings! The word pictures were beautiful~ painting the views and the feelings so wonderfully. I was really sad to see it end and hope to hear more about these characters!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Stolen?

    I was so surprised because I knew so little about the story line. I don't want to give anything away! If I told you may favorite part it would give some fo that away.


    What does Emily Gray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love her voice and how she sounds like I think Gemma would sound. I never had to focus to ignore the voice to hear the story~ her voice IS gemma's.


    Who was the most memorable character of Stolen and why?

    Ty~ thought provoking contradictions in what you expect of him.

    No one knows why Lara Mallory opens up her medical practice in the rowdy Texas town where Tackett Oil owns everything. But everyone remembers her role in the well-publicized scandal that caused the downfall of White House hopeful Senator Clark Tackett. Now the ironfisted matriarch of Tackett Oil intends to use her money and power to drive Lara out of town...especially when Lara meets Key, the hell-raising, youngest Tackett son.

    "only finishing to find out "big unknown"..."

    Would you try another book from Sandra Brown and/or Natalie Ross?

    probably not!


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Hated sex scenes & any dialogue about sex...language was beyond unrealistic...lots of contradictions.....describes character or situation & within 2 minutes whatever happens next doesn't fit with the character development. Poorly written...felt like modern day harlequin romance. BLECK!


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    yes


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment ....found myself speaking out loud to the narrator about how unrealistic a comment or situation was.


    Any additional comments?

    wish I hadn't bought....
