    Actually, it is Jennifer, not Michael. I enjoy a variety of books but am drawn to romantic historical fiction with a Christian message.

    "Stolen"

    This book was very entertaining but I felt like it just stopped. There was no ending, all these unanswered questions and it is over. The author just leaves so much to your own imagination. I felt disappointed and wanted at least another chapter.

    "Interesting"

    This book kept my attention and the narrator read beautifully. It was just the right length and probably would have become tedious if it was any longer. It did get me thinking about the relationship between captor and captive.

    Story
    "Couldn't stop listening!`"
    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.

    Story
    "Maybe it just doesn't work as an audiobook"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I got really bored with the fact that most of this book took place in the same location. I couldn't quite picture the place and kept drifting off while I was trying to listen to the book, because the whole middle just seemed like the same thing over and over.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending was stronger than I expected.

    Story
    "Awful, just awful. Don't waste your credits!"
    What disappointed you about Stolen?

    Nothing happens in this book. Nothing. She gets kidnapped, and the kidnapper does nothing of any interest to her other than just keep her around for company. In a non-exciting Australian desert in the middle of nowhere. Maybe after the first 4 hours of droning on and nothing happening, something exciting may have happened. I wouldn't know because I couldn't take anymore of it and just skipped to the last 45 minutes to at least know how it ended. Worst waste of credit ever.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lucy Christopher again?

    NO.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Emily Gray?

    No one. It really would have made no difference.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Stolen?

    All of them.


    Any additional comments?

    Did I mention how awful this book is?

    not sure


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    no I didn't love it at all


    Any additional comments?
