Recent kidnappings & The Collector by John Fowles

Over Labor Day weekend I heard all the weird and frightening details about the eighteen year old Austrian girl who was kidnapped and held for over eight years in a windowless cell and then now I hear about the fourteen year old girl who was kidnapped and held for ten days until she snuck a text message to her mom that consequently saved her. Craziness.

Makes me think of a great book I read a few years back. It's about...guess what? A guy who kidnaps a girl and keeps her for a long while and all the mind games and tortures that ensue. If you're drawn to this morbid stuff and prefer it served to you well-written, you'll love The Collector by John Fowles.

Did you ever read the book "The Lovely Bones" by Alice Sebold? It fits in to this creepy "young girls in underground dens" genre, and it's a great read...
