I have seen the movie, but loved the book. Was well written and completely captivating. It filled in a lot of gaps that the movie left. I will be listening to this one again.

On May 6, 2013, Amanda Berry made headlines around the world when she fled a Cleveland area home and called 911, saying: "Help me, I'm Amanda Berry.... I've been kidnapped, and I've been missing for 10 years." A horrifying story rapidly unfolded. Ariel Castro, a local school bus driver, had separately lured Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight to his home, where he kept them chained in the basement. In the decade that followed, the three were raped, psychologically abused, and threatened with death.

This book was well written. I admire both of these women for their courage.
It's an emotional roller coaster worth taking.

Jane Eyre follows the emotions and experiences of eponymous Jane Eyre, her growth to adulthood, and her love for Mr. Rochester, the byronic master of Thornfield Hall. The novel contains elements of social criticism, with a strong sense of morality at its core, but is nonetheless a novel many consider ahead of its time given the individualistic character of Jane and the novel's exploration of sexuality, religion, and proto-feminism.

In 1977, 20-year-old Colleen Stan left home to hitchhike from Oregon to California. Seven years later she emerged from hell, the victim of a bizarre and extraordinary crime. Known as the "sex slave" or "girl in the box" case, here's the whole story - too strange to be anything but true - of Colleen's horrifying imprisonment by Cameron Hooker. Told by the district attorney who tried the case, it is a tale of riveting intensity and gripping courtroom drama.
