Sort order. I say THREE because while occasionally thrown into the story as an annoying afterthought, Michelle Knight was also in that house the longest and endured the worst experience. While they did ask Michelle if she wanted to participate in this book, she said she wanted to tell her own story. If they took offense to that, shouldn't they of all people understand everyone needs to heal in their own personal way? I do have a bit of a problem with Michelle's story in it saying part of it has been fictionalized.
What I take offense with is that Michelle always paid respect to the entire story. She talked about all three women being in the house and spoke about what each was enduring, if not somewhat implying Amanda was somewhat being favored a bit At other times, she treats her worse than the family dog who craps on the carpet.
What she did for her daughter is truly remarkable. Her honesty about her Stockholm Syndrome-like emotions is admirable. Any story of bravery like this is inspiring.
But whatever petty crap that went on the scenes behind this that made Michelle the cast-out throwaway in a survival story like this is pretty disturbing to me. View all 34 comments. This is one of the most riveting books I have ever read. We need to suspend everyone's right to privacy for one day and check all basements, bedrooms, attics, etc. This book shows that if a twisted mind is careful enough, it can hide despicable horrors for years right under their neighbor's nose.
While this book is riveting, it is very, very hard to read. If you are sensitive to hearing descriptions of acts driven by pure evil, this is not the book for you. De Jesus and Berry we This is one of the most riveting books I have ever read. De Jesus and Berry were very brave to tell and revisit this tale.
It is seriously unimaginable! View all 11 comments. Amazing As a sexual assault survivor I often sit and wonder why? It's hard to get up and just live sometimes. These women are a inspiration to all survivors. Thanks to them all the old backlogged DNA cases are finally getting tested.
After almost 15 years I have received closure for my own case. I want to thank these courageous women for sharing their journey. View 1 comment. I'm sure y'all are clamoring for my insightful review of this, Amanda Berry's and Gina De Jesus' harrowing account of a decade in captivity in Cleveland and the reprise of sorts of fellow abductee Michelle Knight's book, Finding Me.
Or reading about Elizabeth Smart's ordeal in Utah, or Jaycee Dugard's eerily similar, equally horrific abduction in Northern California. I'm a sucker for "happy endings" and goodness knows, there's no such thing when a teen girl is subjected to repeated rape, beatings, and psychological torture for nearly half her life. If there's a silver lining in this and Ms. Knight's frightful account, it's that possibly, by allowing these women to share their harrowing stories with us, it might provide them some sort of closure so that they can somehow pick up the pieces and have some semblance of a normal life.
Unlike Ms. Knight's Finding Me , Hope feels more polished probably thanks in part to the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists that assisted Ms. Berry and Ms. De Jesus in the telling of their story. That is not to say this is necessarily the better of the two books. Each of these young women had her own unique story to tell; it's a shame that they couldn't resolve the rift between them, banded together and compiled all their stories instead of having to read two books to get a more complete picture of what they went through, because each story demands to be read.
Both books are horrific, unforgettable glimpses of overcoming a freak's depravity, and if you were, like me, dumbstruck over the news of their escape, and wanted to learn more of their ordeal, both books are must reads.

This book was the account of the horrible kidnappings from the two more well-known victims; Amanda Berry and Gina Dejesus. This book truly touched me - as I'm sure it has touched everyone whose ever read it.
However, I definitely identify with Michelle Knight's book more - and not just because I read her book first - but because her story was much, much more tragic.
And though Michelle and Gina were chained together for years and years - Michelle was in this book as like another inanimate detail. It made her story that much harder. And then Amanda and Gina have done so much together and are very, very close friends which drives the wedge in deeper because they didn't like each other in the house. But if they can become BFF'S outside the house - why can't the three of them band together in friendship? I don't know if they completely ignored her or whatever to respect the book she had put out on her own - but none of their stories match up.
Why is it that Michelle remembers Castro abusing her most and in front of them while they don't recall that? When Michelle had her last miscarriage and when Castro made her sick off of mustard and Gina helped her through it - Gina never talks about that.
Gina said she became a cutter and then a rubber band snapper - but Michelle never talked about that in her book. There were many other examples of things that Gina talked about or Michelle talked about that they BOTH should have went through together. They were chained together for a LONG time - why do they not mention the things they went through together while chained? They didn't even recall the van situation the same way as Michelle did!
Outside of some tiny dialogue inconsistencies, the only thing all three of them seem to recall accurately is their rescue! Doesn't the wedge between the three of them means ultimately Castro finally won their obedience? I'm not saying it's not a good book or a book that truly touches you in ways you can't imagine.
And I'm not saying Amanda or Gina are bad or unfeeling. But the complete dismissal of Michelle Knight in this book and in their lives now is completely disheartening. I wish they all could be friends.

Глядя, как он шелестит деньгами, Меган вскрикнула и изменилась в лице, по-видимому ложно истолковав его намерения. Она испуганно посмотрела на вращающуюся дверь… как бы прикидывая расстояние. До выхода было метров тридцать. - Я оплачу тебе билет до дома, если… - Молчите, - сказала Меган с кривой улыбкой. - Я думаю, я поняла, что вам от меня. - Она наклонилась и принялась рыться в сумке.
Я просматриваю регистратор лифта Стратмора. - Мидж посмотрела в монитор и постучала костяшками пальцев по столу. - Он здесь, - сказала она как о чем-то само собой разумеющемся. - Сейчас находится в шифровалке. Смотри. Стратмор пришел вчера с самого утра, и с тех пор его лифт не сдвинулся с места. Не видно, чтобы он пользовался электронной картой у главного входа.
Сьюзен надеялась, что с ним все в порядке. Ей трудно было поверить, что он в Испании. Чем скорее будет найден ключ и все закончится, тем лучше для .
За дверью послышалось какое-то жужжание, словно кабина была на месте. Она снова начала нажимать кнопки и снова услышала за дверью этот же звук. И вдруг Сьюзан увидела, что кнопка вызова вовсе не мертва, а просто покрыта слоем черной сажи. Она вдруг начала светиться под кончиком пальца.
