Publisher's Summary

On March 2, 1998, 10-year-old Natascha Kampusch was kidnapped and found herself locked in a house that would be her home for the next eight years. She was starved, beaten, treated as a slave, and forced to work for her deranged captor. But she never forgot who she was, and she never gave up hope of returning to the world. This is her story.

Interesting story..could be better

The story has all the earmarks of a great true crime read. Some parts had great potential, but it is told from a child's point of view for most of the book. I understand that is needed, but it became monotonous and repetitive which slowed down the read. I would have liked to have read more from her adult situation, and not have certain parts deliberately left out with the explanation of "privacy issues". The book is built up as being based on her whole Slavery experience....unfortunately, all you get is a weak apology as to why she does not want to tell the whole story! Big let down. I wish I would have done my research before listening to this, I would have been for warned of the author's predisposition to not trust media and how she tends to hide the whole story. I am sad she was so brutalized and that she lost her childhood, I don't want to sound heartless. I am just giving my honest opinion on how the story was presented.
