The Child Finder
The title and the synopsis of this book led me to believe I could really enjoy it. It took me a little while to get used to bouncing between characters. I felt like it was written as if I were watching the scenes instead of reading them, if that makes any sense. At times, I felt I needed a little more detail and description. Fortunately, Denfeld writes with such compassion and delicacy when describing what one could imagine are very graphic and heartbreaking images.
I definitely think this novel will be a very good movie due to the mysterious past of the main character, Naomi, and the intense, controversial story plot. Denfeld is a child abuse survivor and an investigator and her experiences are reflected in her writing. The novel is suspenseful so I believe a film could magnify it. Overall, it was a quick read with a positive ending.
