5.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreaking but full of hope...
I could not put this book down. Factual, yet well written, the author suspends judgement to let the reader decide whether the system failed Jaycee and her family. We can only fervently hope that she and her girls were able to heal and move past this, to live happy and productive lives.

2.0 out of 5 stars Better off reading Jaycee's real story
This book was just ok. It was long and hard to get into especially when covering the first trial of Phillip. Too much detail was not necessary. Too much repetition made it hard to keep intrigued. Better off reading Jaycee's real story.

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Story of Survival, April 10 2012
This review is from: Lost and Found: The True Story of Jaycee Lee Dugard and the Abduction that Shocked the World (Mass Market Paperback)
The first part of this book is an account of some of the events (of the perpetrater) that led to Jaycee's abduction and confinement. Jaycee leads the reader through the abduction, horrific abuse, pregnancies and how she lived and coped every day incarcerated in a secret back yard. She also recounts happy times with her cats, girls and using her talent in the perpetrators printing business.
This book will challenge your faith in law enforcement and the criminal justice system as a whole. Thankfully Jaycee survided to be reunited with her mother; sadly it took 18 years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superbly Written, July 4 2011
This review is from: Lost and Found: The True Story of Jaycee Lee Dugard and the Abduction that Shocked the World (Mass Market Paperback)
An amazing book written from an objective perspective. Although one would want to hate Gariddo when first hearing about this tragic story, by reading this book, one will understand what his life entailed before that unfortunate day. The book is very well written and having history of Gariddos life is very helpful when trying to understand why he did this and his bizarre take on life. Usually crime books can be quite long and rather boring but this book got straight to the point in a detailed manner. I applaud the author for doing an awesome job.
