Annie was having a regular day, just finishing up an open house when she is abducted and taken to an isolated mountain cabin. Her story is told in a narrative to her psychiatrist after her imprisonment ends. But is it the end of her suffering?
This was an extremely emotional and horrifying story. I want to say I loved it, but the subject matter, and horrors that Annie went through prevent me from saying it. How can you love a story that tells about the utter destruction of ordinary life?
This story was told in a unique way, with the many story unfolding through narrative to her shrink, with commentary at the beginning and end of each session about her life now. This sounds complicated, but it seemed quite natural, and easy to follow. Naturally, in the beginning sessions, the story time and now time were quite far apart, but by the end, the story time was the now time.
And speaking of the ending… I don’t even have the words to describe how angry and stunned I am at why Annie was abducted, and who was behind it. Absolutely shocking and horrible!
