Alex and Katie were good, if not a tad bit boring, characters. I liked them both, even if Alex was a little TOO perfect, and rooted for them. Kevin was a bad guy. I disagree with other reviewers who found him stereotypical and repetitive. As a mental health professional, I read his portions with a sense of mania that rang true for me. One reviewer disliked the repetitive "He was a good detective" line. For me, it spoke with Kevin's desperation and lack of a grip on reality... he clung to his belief that he was a good detective, despite evidence to the contrary and an obvious descent into madness.
I enjoyed Katie's learning to trust and enjoy simple pleasures again. The end was suspenseful to me (if not a bit long), and I could picture the scenes in my mind's eye. Overall, I liked the story. I did think "love" happened too quickly, and parts of the story were too wordy for me.
In my opinion, the characters aren't very unique, but they are likeable with the exception of the antagonist. Although, he was mildly interesting with his strange, yet psycho, behavior and reasoning for said behavior. I mostly liked Katie, because she is resourceful, clever, and admirable in the way she deals with her frightening predicament.
I recommend this novel to anyone looking for an easy, romantic summer read with some dark, suspense thrown in, and a strong female character.
Note: If anyone's wondering about the movie, I've seen it, and it's very similar to the book. I think the book is better though.
