Summary

In The Lost Girls, John Glatt tells the truly amazing story of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight - who were kidnapped, imprisoned, and repeatedly raped and beaten in a Cleveland house for over a decade by Ariel Castro - and their amazing escape in May 2013, which made headlines all over the world.

This audiobook has an exclusive interview with Castro's secret girlfriend, who spent many romantic nights in his house of horror without realizing that he had bound and chained captives just a few feet away. There are also revealing interviews with several Castro family members, musician friends, and neighbors who witnessed the dramatic rescue.

Gripping but emotional read

I have so much admiration for what these girls went through. I dont know how they had the will to survive. I especially admired michelle as she was the first taken and was a lone victim in the house for a while and was there the longest. Plus she helped care for the others. Had me hooked all the way through. Good narrator too.

Incredible

I always try to get as much information as possible about a particular case and find that documentaries struggle to fit everything in. John Glatt has written a very informative book on what Ariel put those 3 innocent through and how they survived. The narration made this book very easy to listen as well

Great listen

A Very detailed account of the story, informative. However the way the narrator read dates was very annoying...minor issue but, I don't think it would of hurt to add rd,th or st after reading the numbers haha a little petty I know, but it did drive me a little potty ;)

A true life story - very sad but a good listen

loved this book, I enjoy listening to real life stories although very sad the outcome was as good as it could be. Not for those who struggle with abuse stories.

Monotone narration

Very interesting story but ready dreadfully and randomly Swapped between narrators with no obvious reason. A little repetitive doesn’t do the story justice

very good narration .true events

read fantastically well i was hooked since the first word. really grim sad and gripping graphic true story of a psychotic bad man doing horrible things. it goes into detail about who he was were he came from etc. then goes on to tell how he abused his partner using very grotesque and detailed accounts and graphic words ....it then describes all his victims individually and what happened to each 1. i love that it gave time frames and ages as they went along wich gives a clearer more accurate version of events.i was totally addicted to this terrifying story of true events thats took place. i even cryed at some points. i was heartbroken throughout. absolute must have in your library.

terrible narration

I had to stop listening. I found the narrator really irritating. I didn't understand the need to keep using the full name of Arial Castro over and over. I'm sure I would have enjoyed it but couldn't listen anymore. shame!
