I thought this was going to be a story about Eugene Allen. But it is just a poorly written advertisement for the movie with very little about Mr Allen specifically. This was probably due to the fact the Mr Allen was very discrete about what he saw during his years in the White House and chose not to dish out the dirt as so many are prone to do these days. I can't believe they actually charge for this book!!
I found the story of Jaycee's captivity truly compelling and hearing this unique and disturbing story in her own voice made it even more powerful. From pure disgust at the actions of her kidnappers to overwhelming joy at her recovery and healing this book will take you to both ends of the emotional spectrum.
I am dismayed by some of the negative reviews that I have seen posted here. Yes, her narration is not "professional" and she does not sound like a 30 year old.Get over it!! Let's not forget the horrors she endured and maybe we can then understand how that affected her development. But unlike most victims she shows a strength beyond imagination. No whining from her, folks.No other professional could have read this, no other professional could have written this, and there are very few of us who could have survived this. I hope that Jaycee and her family are able to live a rich and fulfilling life from here on. They deserve that...not petty criticism about narration and choppy sentences.
