Abduction The reader is guided through the life of a young boy after being taken away to live with his older sister. He finds out that too much of a good thing is bad for you. The story begins with someone thinking about to get away with killing a girl and that even if he is caught it would still be worth it. The girl is disliked in this manner because she was “a killer”, but not your typical murderer, but someone who can kill with money and power. If we compare this text to a song written by Siouxsie and The Banshees we see that the song shares a similar theme. If you are unfamiliar with the song, then that theme is, knowing what is best. In the song it is expressed from the beginning you are taught to respect your mother and that as much as you may disagree your mother will always know what is best for you, but in the end your mother will know when to let go and send you off on your own. This in some ways is very similar to the text just it’s not mother that knows best here. It’s Ann who takes over the role as the all knowing and all powerful mother. She teaches respect and demands respect. She knows what is best for her children, who are in this case the children she looks after at work, her brother and her brother’s daughter. The only difference that she does not know when to let go and let her brother take off to be his own man.
