The setting was well visualized and captured into words in “The Captive”. I loved feeling like I was making this journey as well. However, I never completely associated with Brooke.

Then also she did not reveal crucial data that would have assisted her family with understanding what the hell was going on. The vast majority of her choices appeared to cause more damage than anything else, and I just couldn’t get why.
