I really liked this book. Did I find it "amazing" as the 5 stars requires, no but I know I'm a little unfair being as how the book took place in Sweden and when I first started it I couldn't even tell you if the names were male or female and I feel out of sorts when I don't know where they are talking about when they say things like "just outside Helsingborg".
Aside from that, the book is about a wife, Ylva, who doesn't come home one day, just vanishes. She leaves a husband, Mike and daughter, Sanna grieving, trying to understand what happened to her and after so long just assume she's dead. What they don't know is frightening. She's being held captive by the neighborhood (who is harboring a grudge), in a sound proof room in their basement where her only link to the outside world is a video camera set up to record her own house where she can see Mike and Sanna coming and going.
The book did get my heart racing and it did keep me quite entertained (even though not funny at all). I didn’t care for the ending, I wish this was a book that had an alternate ending that I could also read.
I will definitely recommend!! Thank you NetGalley for giving me the chance to read this!
