Even later ligt het meisje van tien in een deken gewikkeld op een koude keldervloer in een eengezinswoning. Om haar heen is het aardedonker, de lucht is bedompt en benauwd.

I think the book would have been a lot better had Kampusch gone all out with the details of her 9 year imprisonment. Of course I understand her desire to keep certain parts of the ordeal private, but because of that, you always had a feeling while reading the book that there were specific facts withheld, that there was more to the story than she was willing to share.

She also strikes me as having a chip on her shoulder with regards to the labeling of "Stockholm syndrome." She is very defensive ab
No sé exactamente cómo darle una calificación a este libro. ¿Me gustó lo que leí? No. En lo absoluto Pero, ¿me gustó leerlo? Sí. Muchísimo. La diferencia es simple. Natascha es una joven que nació en Austria, que fue secuestrada a los diez años y permaneció así durante 3,096 días (calculando, unos 8 años y algo). Sólo por si no lo saben, es una historia real,escrita por la muchacha secuestrada. Leí el libro en una tarde. Durante su lectura, te das una idea,probablemente no muy acertada, pero una ...more

it is hard to rate a book like this with any number of stars. i applaud ms kampusch for having the courage and strength to make it through the ordeal without losing herself, and to process it in part by writing down her story.

in my opinion, her account gives very good insight in the damage that is done not only to the body, but also to the mind and soul of the victim of a violent crime. she describes in a detached way the mechanisms her mind resorted to, like feeling compassion for the abuser a
I am not able to rate this book.
I have finished it a week ago and since then I have tried to decide which rating would be appropriate. I can't even find the right words for a proper review. All I can say is that it kept me in a constantly alternating state of fury, horror and tearfulness.
I simply can't rate this book.

Wow. I don't know if my English vocabulary will be enough to describe everything I felt reading this (so expect a lot of grammar errors), but I feel the need of doing it in English hopping this way it will be read by more people than writing this in Spanish, because I think everybody should read this book. Well written considering this girl has nothing else than basic education, provided mostly by herself and her incredible desire of superation, inside and outside her imprisonment.

I remember the television footage when Natascha Kampusch first escaped from captivity back in 2008. I'm not someone who watches the news much, but something about her story captivated me then, so when I discovered she'd written a memoir about her experience, I downloaded the ebook immediately and was glued to my Kindle in every spare moment for the next couple of days.

Others have criticised Kampusch for painting a "poor me" account of her childhood before the abduction. I disagree, though I foun

Necesitaría urgentemente algún tipo de coletilla para las estrellas que pongo a los libros, porque de ninguna manera se puede entender que 5 estrellas signifiquen que todo libro puntuado así te parezca maravilloso. Puede hacerte sentir eso, pero sentimientos negativos, y considerarlo un imprescindible porque lo has leído con muchísima intensidad y te ha durado un suspiro incluso aunque el tiempo libre no acompañara. Ese es el caso de este libro.

How does a person survive 8 1/2 years of captivity, kept by a man who brutalizes her? Natascha's story is an amazing one--how a 10 year old girl finds herself thrown into a van and whisked away to an underground bunker, well hidden in an ordinary looking house in the city. She comes from an unhappy family situation and seems already inured to living in less-than-ideal circumstances. I'm only an amateur psychologist, but even I can see the ways that she is twisted by growing up in captivity. I th ...more

It is hard to rate a book like this with any number of stars. As this book wasn't written for entertainment, thus it is unfair to review it in a similar way of reviewing novels. This book is so incredibly scary, so difficult even to read! This was a detailed and grueling account of a real abduction. It shows us a harsh slice of reality. I cannot imagine how difficult it must have been to Natascha to actually survive this all.

This is a book one can't really rate...because no humane person can like it...and you can't say it's's, to be simply put, dreadful...

And then again, most of us won't b able to remotely identify with the I didn't find it odd when at so many places I was shaking my head...thinking that she never tried enough...or wondering if the book is just dragging (oh, not to forget I am d one who craves on fiction...this genre, true and sad's mix, is a lot too tough for me in any case)

The story of Natascha Kampusch was all over the media, but reading her book gave a whole other look at her harrowing tale. Natascha was abducted as an 8 year old girl on her way to school, and was imprisoned by her kidnapper for 8 years in a self-constructed underground prison in his home. In this book she writes how she adapted and how she managed to survive 8 harrowing years until her escape, during which she suffered extreme psychological, physical, and (alluded) sexual abuse. Her story seems ...more

Ich wollte das Buch eigentlich schon lesen als es grad erschienen war.
Aber irgendwie bin ich nie dazu gekommen.
Zu der Zeit war "Der Fall Natascha Kampusch" ja noch deutlich präsenter und die Zeit in der Natascha Kampusch selbst auch noch häufiger in diversen Tv Formaten zu sehen war lag noch nicht so weit zurück.
Damals fand ich den Fall unglaublich spektakulär und zeitgleich erschreckend.

En god bog om en syg sag - og det kendte plot gør den til en pageturner. Første del omkring hendes barndom var ikke særlig stærkt skrevet, men ligeså snart hun bliver hevet ind i den hvide varevogn tager bogen fart.

Enkelte gange blev jeg i tvivl omkring, hvor meget hun selv siger tingene, eftersom hun bruger flotte ord, og jeg går ud fra 8 års fangenskab ikke ligefrem stimulerer ordforrådet, men så igen, hendes bortfører underviste hende.

É sempre difícil avaliar um livro com uma temática tão pesada. Como é obvio preferia que esta historia nunca tivesse acontecido; que a Natacha nunca tivesse sido raptada; e nunca tivesse passado durante 8 anos por tamanhos tormentos. Mas já que este livro existe, foi sem dúvida uma leitura sofredora mas também uma história de superação e esperança. Deixa-nos a pensar muito na nossa sociedade e na falta de empatia e desinteresse. Uma leitura muito diferente mas sem dúvida compensadora.

I've read other survivor accounts before, but none that had this level of honesty and perspective. If there was a ghostwriter involved in the creation of this book, their influence was minimal; this is not a sensationalized exploitation of a victim, this is a first hand account of the psychological effects of captivity from an early age. Kampusch grew up under the most brutal circumstances and came out on the other side thoughtful, intelligent, kind and fair.
Eigene Meinung:

Cover: Es ist eine Biografie, also ist Natascha Kampusch auf dem Cover. Was soll man dazu sagen. Passt!

Inhalt: Nach dem Lesen dieses Buches brauchte ich erst einmal eine Pause zum Durchatmen, um dieses Review zu schreiben. Neben dem Lesen habe ich immer wieder Sachen im Internet nachgelesen, habe alte Interviews mit Natascha Kampusch angehört und angesehen, um mir ein noch umfassenderes Bild von ihrer Geschichte zu machen. Und das hat mich emotional sehr aufgewühlt, ihre Haltung u

Pročitala sam knjigu i sada kada trebam napisati recenziju, pitam se: "Kako oceniti nečiju ovako traumatičnu, istinitu ispovest?"

Naravno da knjiga nije savršena, da bi neki drugi autor to uradio mnogo bolje ali to je Natašina priča, njeno pravo je da je sama napiše. Samo ona zna koliko toga želi da nam kaže i koliko, i na koji način, želi da pred javnost iznese svoje zatočeništvo i patnju.
Upravo zato joj neke propuste ne mogu zameriti!

I was happy to finally get an English copy of Natascha Kampusch's memoir in Berlin, as it's something I've been looking forward to for quite awhile. When she was ten years old, Kampusch was kidnapped by a man who wished to control her and turn her into his "perfect woman." She writes well (with some assistance) and really attempts to put us in her place as a young girl trying to survive in a place most people could never possibly imagine. She goes into detail over some of the more harrowing expe ...more

Recommends it for: True crime readers
A rare look at a kidnap victim's story, after she was able to escape her abductor after 8 years imprisonment. Her true tale from her own perspective, including her feelings about her kidnapper, and the Stockholm Syndrome, among many other things.

Natascha Kampusch was taken by Wolfgang Priklopil in March, 1998 when she was only 10 years old, on her way to school. She was locked away, sleeping underground in a basement-like dungeon, where she was eventually starved, beaten, and treated as a slave

I was intrigued with this book after I watched the movie, 3,096 days. I googled her case right after I watched the movie. Natasha Kampusch really is a brilliant woman even as a child. Her words were a complete relevant statement. I agree and really love her opinion on the Stockholm Syndrome. What she went through was heartbreaking and the real kidnapping scene really did terrified me. Some of the abuses she receive I don't really have words to put it.

This book is so incredibly scary, so difficult even to read! I cannot imagine how difficult it must have been to Natascha to actually survive this all. The fact that she actually managed to stay alive and grow and develop shows that the powers that be were guarding her.

These crimes are everywhere and can take place behind any front door in the country, every day, and barely elicit much more than a shrug of the shoulders and superficial dismay.” 14 likes
