Really bizarre, hard to believe. A good book about endurance, perseverance and survival.
I had to keep reading until the end.

One of the most incredible true stories I have ever read. I received it in the morning, started it in the afternoon, was finished the next afternoon. Although the setting is not the US, John Glatt writes so well, it keeps you captive. (no pun intended) This story will break your heart. It almost seems too bizarre to be true.

A true story that is so very disturbing to anyone who reads it. I found the whole legal system that was in place sadly lacking in teeth to do anything about the situation as it was being done.
Compelling and so heartwrenching for the family that they had this monster to live with. Makes you want to watch your neighbors more closely.

An horrendous story about incest. I found this book to be redundant in many Chapters.

This book was excellent! I read it in a day and could not put it down. Fritzl is disgusting and should be tormented like he tormented his daughter and family.
