  "Even Silence Has an End" by critzyj (see profile) 12/17/10

This was a difficult book to get through, but for good reason. It is the story of Ingrid Betancourt who spent six years as a prisoner in the jungles of Columbia. The story was repetitive—awful experiences, try to escape, get captured, awful experiences, try to escape, get captured. But it was true and that's how her life was for so many years. Not an easy read, but interesting and leads to good discussion.

I found it hard to put this book down. It was truly scary and to think that it is a true story. I wanted to read the other prisoner's accounts because they did not all agree with Ingrids'. I think it could have been about 100 pages shorter, but I did enjoy it and think it is worth reading.

 
  "How in the world can a person adapt to this situation?" by margitolsen (see profile) 01/15/11

Great psychological insight into an unfanthomable situation. Even though the situation was the same for years the response to the changes was fascinating.

I suggested this book for our club so I felt responsible. It was interesting and informative over all but was tedious and repetitive - quite difficult to finish. Ms. Bennancourt went on and on and on. It would have been more interesting if she had dealt with some emotions and feelings rather that just the facts about the captives and their captors, over and over. I don't recommend this book.
