Fatal Kidnapping (Book) - 12/6/2008 6:26:50 PM|
Easy style, gentle cadence
"Fatal Kidnapping" tells, from three different perspectives, the story of Katie Stone's kidnapping and subsequent escape. We see it first from her father's and boyfriend's side, then we hear Katie tell the story to the sherrif, and then we find out "the truth".
Evans writes in simple, short sentences. She uses a minimalist style, and it reads as if the narrator is reciting the story in a gentle, repetitive cadence. She tends to avoid (or at least to dampen down) the conflicts in her scenes, focusing more on the current interactions of the characters, and telling about their past reactions to major crises in their lives.
Katie Stone and her surrounding characters are from a simple and rural life. I enjoyed the glimpses into this life, espeially around how Katie and her family handled the process of dying (several people have lingering illnesses).
Without giving away the ending, I will say that Evans surprised me with her glimpse into a person's dark and overly-practical side. She did a nice job of gently leading up to the surprise without revealing it too soon.

"Thank YOU" for posting this - I am the daughter of/sister of/niece of/cousin of Veterans, and a Veteran, myself - every time I see a soldier, sailor, airman, I thank them - the least we could (should) do. Not all of us support the war, but dang it, our boys and girls are willing to lay down their lives for freedom's sake - ours, as well as others' - God bless 'em, and their families!!!!!
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
