I can't give this book anything but 5 stars.
A detailed telling of Ariel Castro and the violence committed against the women he held hostage in his house in Cleveland.
I recently read some of the other books connected to this case and watched some of the television coverage. This book gave an even...

I read Michelle Knight's book and whilst that was a book worth reading, I found this book was better in the sense that it (naturally) gave a wider picture of what transpired. The author provides a history and background of the Castro family and extended family, which is a horror story in itself....

My rating of this book is primarily an emotional response to the plight of these 3 girls who were kidnapped by one man in Cleveland, Ohio and how they managed their miraculous escape. This is nonfiction and I remember when this story broke. It was all over the news. It was unfathomable that these...

The Lost Girls is the story of Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus, who were kidnapped by Ariel Castro in Cleveland, Ohio, and kept captive in his home for 11 years, 10 years and 9 years, respectively. I had just seen a Lifetime movie about the same events a week before, so I was eager...

I wanted to know the story of the victims and I felt like the background the author provided was more like a wi...

This was a hard book to listen to. Not because it wasn’t well written, because it was, but because of what these women went through. Ariel Castro was a monster. He abused those women and then said they asked for it and that he treated them well. It’s shocking that people were in the house, stayed...

I have to admit. I have become obsessed with this story. I think it is because of the determination the women showed in the face of such horror. I read Michelle Knight's book last year, and intend to read Hope by Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus. This book provided additional insight into Ariel Cast...

Well written detailed account of the Cleveland abductions, before, during and afterwards... It is horrific what these girls endured. This book made me very emotional; horrified, angry, tearful, disturbed, but then proud and hopeful... These women are true survivors. Wow.
