What kind of ending was that??
What happened or was going to happen?
Did not like this unfinished novel at all.

I really had to force myself to make it to the end of this book.
It get a bit more bearable in the last chapters. I was ready for a hard read but this was pushing my limit.
Can't even say I'm glad I finished since the ending is rather sudden.

I am a big fan of Joyce Carol Oates and I think this book addressed an important social issue about abduction and brainwashing. However, I hated the ending. It was abrupt and confusing.

I'm sorry I couldn't give this book negative stars! In my opinion, it was a very sick and depressing book. I skipped through most of the book to get to the ending which was not what I hoped it would be. I DO NOT recommend this book at all! I was very disappointed.
