I did enjoy it, though I haven't seen the film so I'm not sure if that would have changed my perspective on the story & the way it was told

Seriously, fiction is not my strength. I've only really liked one book of fiction till now. Stolen was no exception, even though I felt compelled to know what's going to happen,
I knew nothing good would come out of it. It makes us think all of the time of what could've been if, only if...It's quite a frustrating read.
And if Ty was ugly, fat and old, I would be completely freaked out.

What I love about this book is that it is this sort of philosophical self-help book but the thing is it is written by a real wiseman like Bertrand Russell.
There were many things I didn't agree with, like his criticism of introspection, which i think can be a very valuable characteristic,
but there was so many great advise, really eye-opening and it was so beautifully well-put. Love, love, love.
