    Horrifying, hideous, unthinkable acts of violence and perversion were endured for 9-10 years by three lost girls. Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina Dejesus were kidnapped and imprisoned by Ariel Castro, a sadistic, violent, secretive man with delusions of making his own family. Wh...

    If I had read this book before I had read the one written by Michelle Knight I would have loved this book much more I think. Now because I already knew a lot about the case it was just good. I think if you had not yet read any book about the Cleveland Abductions I would suggest rea...

    One of the most shocking crimes in recent memory is the Cleveland kidnappings. Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus were all abducted in broad daylight by a man named Ariel Castro who beat them, raped them and tortured them every day for over ten years. Now, the three women a...

    My heart breaks for these girls and what happened to them, but I was buoyed by the hope and light that came out of the book. The story is impeccably researched, and I was compelled to turn the pages. I hope only the best for these women as they continue to readjust to their new lives, ...

    I have to admit. I have become obsessed with this story. I think it is because of the determination the women showed in the face of such horror. I read Michelle Knight's book last year, and intend to read Hope by Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus. This book provided additional insight into...

    I had previously read Michelle Knight's book, so I knew a lot of the story from her persepective. However, this title gives a wider scope to the story; you learn more about Ariel Castro and his upbringing, about his relationship with Nilda Figueroa and his children, about the searches ...

    This was a hard book to listen to. Not because it wasn?t well written, because it was, but because of what these women went through. Ariel Castro was a monster. He abused those women and then said they asked for it and that he treated them well. It?s shocking that people were in th...

    At first I was disgusted. Then I became really angry. In the end, I was puzzled. I?m referring to my reactions to John Glatt?s recently published The Lost Girls: The True Story of the Cleveland Abductions and the Incredible Rescue of Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry, and Gina DeJesus ...

    The Lost Girls is the story of Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus, who were kidnapped by Ariel Castro in Cleveland, Ohio, and kept captive in his home for 11 years, 10 years and 9 years, respectively. I had just seen a Lifetime movie about the same events a week before, so ...

    Well written detailed account of the Cleveland abductions, before, during and afterwards... It is horrific what these girls endured. This book made me very emotional; horrified, angry, tearful, disturbed, but then proud and hopeful... These women are true survivors. Wow. ...

    I read Michelle Knight's book and whilst that was a book worth reading, I found this book was better in the sense that it (naturally) gave a wider picture of what transpired. The author provides a history and background of the Castro family and extended family, which is a horror story ...

    This is the second book that I've read by author John Glatt I thought this one had a better writing style than his other book I've read entitled Secrets in the Cellar. I wanted to read this book because a few days ago I finished and reviewed a book/memoir that two of the girls involved...

    I've already read the victims books. I always read this author's account, he does such a great job filling in the blanks and providing background information that the victims don't have. ...

    On May 6, 2013 the neighbors of Ariel Castro were surprised to see a woman trying to get out of his house, their disbelief deepened when the woman revealed she was Amanda Berry who had been missing for 10 years. When she revealed that Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were also in the h...

    First and foremost, John Glatt is truly my favorite author! His writing is guaranteed to engage one while reading his books. You will never be disappointed in a John Glatt book! I have followed this case since the girls were found and was always amazed at the strength, courage and sta...

    It is incredible that these girls escaped, and I admire them for their bravery. I found the book quite repetitive, like they were looking for ways to make it longer. It got to be boring and I would have to skim to get to other information. ...

    This book gave a very detailed background of Castro... which was interesting and gave some perspective on his proclivities however, I didn't feel like we heard about the victims enough. I wanted to know the story of the victims and I felt like the background the author provided was mor...

    My rating of this book is primarily an emotional response to the plight of these 3 girls who were kidnapped by one man in Cleveland, Ohio and how they managed their miraculous escape. This is nonfiction and I remember when this story broke. It was all over the news. It was unfathomable...

    I can't give this book anything but 5 stars. A detailed telling of Ariel Castro and the violence committed against the women he held hostage in his house in Cleveland. I recently read some of the other books connected to this case and watched some of the television coverage. Thi...

    A lot of information in this book, that has to do with the lives of the victims before and after the abduction, and their captors life. More information on the search and what went down during their captivity. ...

    A story of true horror, but also of survival. The story not only looks at the abductions of three women, but also tells about the background and life of Ariel Castro and what a life it was. The first section of the book sets up the rest of the story, telling of Castro's childhood, and ...

    This case was all over the news so I knew a lot about the case before I read the book. I am sadden that this man was not in jail before he kidnapped these three girls. His wife alone could have put him behind bars but fear stopped her. Smooth read but a bit repetitive and not a lot of ...

    I was thoroughly interested in the story of the "Cleveland Kidnappings". John Glatt did an amazing job creating a vivid image of all the scenes; I could see the environment, the girls themselves, and every action that was going on. Although the story was amazing, I did not like the for...

    It's hard for me to say that this was a "good" book, simply because the story itself is so horrific. I listened to the audiobook version of it, so I've been walking around town for the last week with the most distorted and repulsed of faces constantly leading the way. People probably t...

    In 2002 in Cleveland Ohio, 3 girls were taken and used for sexual purposes. In 2013 all of the women and the child that was born in that time was all saved. "The Lost Girls" is a great book to read for adults, this book shows real life events and very strong emotions of the characters....

    3,55/5 The story itself was really heartbreaking and upsetting.I couldn?t give it a rating, that?s why the 3 stars are only for the way Glatt wrote the story. It?s obvious that research was made but this really needed some editing .A lot of repetition was going on, on occasion...
