I finished this book tonight and I hope I don't have nightmares.  This poor girl was kidnapped at age 10 and held for 8 years in a dungeon under this creeps home.  What freaks me out the most is the thought that if he had died..she would have starved or suffocated in her tomb,   She also had to climb through a small opening to enter the dungeon and I get claustrophobic thinking about going into a small opening like that.  This happened in Austria.  I don't remember the crime.  He did let her out at times..but for the first few years..she was kept in this small cellar like place.  EEEK
