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.

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.

A bit too long and repetitive

Would you try another book written by John Glatt or narrated by Shaun Grindell?

Not written by John Glatt.


What was most disappointing about John Glatt’s story?

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.
