The Book of Rapture by Nikki Gemmell

The Book of Rapture has been included in the 50 Books You Can't Put Down Guide for this year's Books Alive. I've read this book and found the narrative to be extremely distracting in the begining but soon got used to it and couldn't put the book down. Now I'm trying to find others who've read it so I can discuss it with them. It's one of those books that requires interpretation through many points of view. Perfect for Book Clubs. Anyone else read it?

Three children wake up in a basement room. They have been drugged and taken from their beds in the middle of the night. Now they are alone. Where are their parents? Who can they trust? The family has been betrayed to the government and Salt Cottage, their home on a clifftop above the ocean, is no longer safe. Their mother′s scientific work has put them all in danger. To protect them, she must let them go. She must put her faith in an old family friend -- and in her children′s own resilience and courage.Searing, provocative and unputdownable, THE BOOK OF RAPTURE is a novel of our time that′s every bit as passionate and driven as THE BRIDE STRIPPED BARE. It will compel, seduce and haunt you.
