I read an adult book
I much preferred the last half of this book, as the first half I had a hard time getting into it. The book is told from a 5-year old boys perspective, so getting adjusted to that dialogue and writing was a little difficult for me to get into. But once I was used to it, his point of few definitely made the book more interesting. The topic of this book I think would be difficult to write from an adults perspective just because of the issues involved, having the book told by Jack kept it's innocence, since Jack doesn't know anything else.
The book is about a woman help captive for seven years, with her soon, whom she gives birth to after 2 years of being held captive, and their escape. I would recommend this book just because of the different narrative and to give yourself the view of how a 5 year old boy sees the world.
