Publisher's 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.

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

The author does a great job of providing the background of Castro and the victims, and of the timeline of the events. It isn't fictionalized, which is good. It's a straightforward account of everything you could ever want to know about this story. It was exactly what I was looking for. I wanted to know what made this guy tick, and it was the same thing that made Josef Fritzl "tick", which is a fear of abandonment. These two have many similarities. They both said, "I'm not a monster" and they had similar relationships with their mothers.

Any additional comments?

I liked the narrator. I was not distracted by the British accent. I could hardly stop listening to this audiobook and glad I found it.

Did we have to have a British guy read this?

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely. I think this is a story that should be known.

What did you like best about this story?

The fact that it's over. Those women made it out.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was actually ashamed at one point. When the narrator was reading the 911 call where Charles Ramsey spoke I couldn't help but laugh out loud. Hearing the voice of a British man reading what an African-American said was classic.

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.

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

An amazing story told in an ordinary fashion

If you could sum up The Lost Girls in three words, what would they be?

Repetitive, lacking depth

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

There is way too much reading verbatim from police reports/court testimony and some of the facts are repeated over and over, causing me to tune out and skip ahead. The background story is necessary but is too long and take focus away from the main story

What three words best describe Shaun Grindell’s voice?

Aussie done poorly

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No emotion as there was little of the in depth emotional recounts you would expect from a story like this. It was basically a retelling of facts, and no actually interviews with the victims. Disappointing.
