    " The fact that this is a true story, is almost incomprehensible. I wasn't able to put the book down. Some books I can start on a Friday afternoon and read straight though and finish in the wee hours of Monday morning, before I have to go to work. This was one of those books. It reads like a movie in your head. "

    " I don't think I'll be rushing to read any more true crime and to be honest I'm not sure how I ended up with this one in the first place but it is a fascinating if disturbing read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Potatoez | 1/16/2014

    " Detailed, and really well written. Covers the entire story, as well as the entire court hearing. Definitely not an ideal book for late nights home alone.. "

    " I read this book in my early 20s. I am now nearly fifty. Still on of the most moving novels ever written. The author spared no detail. And the horror of the whole scenario keeps you captured on every page. It is definitely not a book for the faint at heart. I had no idea that such cruelty existed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily Carter | 9/3/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny Ballard | 9/3/2011

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nick | 9/20/2010

    " The story of a girl kept captive for seven years. The author jumped back and forth between the trial and the girl's story which was a bit annoying at times. I eventually just skipped the story and read the chapters about the trial, since the other stuff was a bit depressing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rowan | 6/18/2010

    " 3.5 STARS

    This book struck a nice balance. It felt thorough without being overly graphic. It was unsettling and left me thinking deeply about society and human nature, and I'm sure I'll think back on it with dismay for a long time to come, but it won't give me nightmares. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ro | 5/16/2010

    " I stumbled across this book at the library one day while I was in high school. It's the true story of the "Girl in the Box" case. Some of the details of the story are almost unbelievable. There are some real NUTCASES out there people! It was a good (but disturbing) read. "
