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.
"For a wide-angle view of the horrific string of crimes start to finish, Glatt constructs an absorbing winner." (Kirkus)

An amazing story told in an ordinary fashion
Repetitive, lacking depth
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
Aussie done poorly
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.
A bit too long and repetitive
Not written by John Glatt.
The book was really detailed on events that seemed tangential to the main story. It was also repetitive, and overall could've been about 30% shorter.
