An amazing book by an amazing woman, so inspired by her resilience and courage to survive a living hell for 7 years. 3. 5 Could definitely have used an editor, but the core experience related is too horrific and singular to not recommend, for folks with the stomach for it Green and Stan never lean into the pornographic as far as details are concerned, but even the broad strokes are a lot to deal with. I had just previously read Perfect Victim which was written from the point of view of the prosecuting attorney in the trial of the sick and evil Cameron Hooker Colleen s tormentor , and although I found that angle of the story interesting, I much preferred this book not only because it comes forth from Colleen, but because I think it gives a complete picture. I would have liked to have given this book Kindle version five stars, but I had to knock off a star for typographical errors The editors should turn in their pencils and make an apology to Colleen for not doing their jobs However, please don t let less than stellar editing prevent you from reading this book the typos are not such that they will leave you confused as to what is being expressed, nor so often that th From the victims perspective Horrific story Most interesting book I ve read in years However, lots of typos. µ Colleen Stan: The Simple Gifts of Life: Dubbed by the Media "The Girl in the Box" and "The Sex Slave" ô From her very own words she describes in detail the horrific live she led under the capture of a man and a women who made here there slave She tends to be repetitive which got a but annoying Cant imagine the life she led for these years.
Intensely scaryscary to think a human can do this to another human I use the term human loosely when speaking in reference to the Hookers. Absolutely full of grammar errors and typos This book was clearly never edited and was written by someone obviously not a writer The story, while interesting tended to go off on a tangent and veer into boring territory in order to fill pages It was ok but Perfect Victim was better. What a book Katie Beers is a survivor Just an amazing woman The abuse from the time she was two years old is unbelievable Where were the people who should have helped her But in spite of her ordeal she became a NORMAL person her words So happy for her. Wow I have read many books on kidnap, abuse, etc but NEVER have I come across one so terribly graphic and heart wrenching as this one I actually after every few pages had to take a few breaths before continuing reading, it affected me that much The only reason for the 4 stars and not 5 was possibly the worst case of typo s I have seen Terrible editor Still a brilliant read My Captivity, I Was Never Told What Was Going To Happen Next Or Why This Lack Of Knowledge Was Used My Master To Maintain A Continuous Element Of Fear And Control Over Me Anytime I Was Taken Out Of The Box, I Never Knew What To Expect Fear Of The Unknown Was Always With Me As I Was Kept In The Dark Both Physically And Mentally This Lack Of Knowledge May Have Been A Good Thing In [Jim B.
