Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melody | 2/19/2014

    " I absolutely loved the way Ingrid writes. She helped me feel as though I was right there next to her for all those horrific years captive. I only gave it 4/5 stars because although I, myself was held captive while reading this book, I felt as though she could have, or maybe 'should have' divulged some more truths to her relationship(s) with her fellow captives. I felt as though she held back for some unknown reason. "

    " True story . . . very suspenseful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 1/29/2014

    " Fascinating account of the Columbian Presidential candidate's grueling years as a hostage of the FARC. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Suzette | 1/25/2014

    " Story of Ingrid Betancourt who was a political candidate who was kidnapped by FARC in Columbia. Held 7 yrs in a jungle prison and lived with a chain around her neck. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin | 1/24/2014

    " This is a story that Ingrid Betancourt tells of her captivity in the Colombian jungle for 6 years. It was a very moving book and I found I couldn't put it down for long. She not only tells of the horrors of being taken captive and the way the guerrillas treated her, but how it can mentally change you and cause you to display characteristics that you normally wouldn't in the outside world. She wrote her story very well and I didn't seem to notice the 587 pages. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie Byfield-Myrie | 1/23/2014

    " What Ingrid Betancourt went through is remarkable. The fact that she lived through captivity and still managed to keep her humanity and her faith is inspiring. A little lengthy but worth a read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erika May | 1/19/2014

    " Many people seem to be pretty ruthless about this book. I thought it was a beautifully written description of Betancourt's captivity. I felt like I was reading someone's retelling of a dream or, at the worst moments, a nightmare. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sally Kinane | 1/13/2014

    " It just goes on and on. I had a hard time finishing it. But I learned alot about human nature and endurance. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cristiano Casagrande | 10/26/2013

    " Rico em detalhes e revelador do comportamento humano tanto dos guerrilheiros quanto dos sequestrados. Muito bem escrito e supreendente. "

    " Great descriptive writing! Some moments were not completely described, even big moments she never touched on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vivianne | 9/15/2012

    " Betancourt's account of 6 years of FARC captivity were terrible, but she was strong and lucky sometimes. However, what impressed me the most was how her relationship with her mom gave her strength to survive such a horrible experience. "

    " I really wanted to like this woman, but couldn't quite get there... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mermac | 9/5/2012

    " This book revealed an entire world that I was oblivious to. I'm humbled to think of the things that some people are able to endure for their desire to improve the world around them. A terrify account of captivity in the jungles of Columbia... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 4/29/2011

    " I read this on my kindle, so I didn't realize how long the book was before I started. My biggest criticism of the book is that it is too long. Even with 5-6 chapters too many, it held my interest. "
