This book is a straight-forward account of a very terrifying time in one woman's life. I found it fascinating to ready Jaycee Dugard's account of how she coped with being in a situation that is so far removed from what any normal person would ever experience. I also appreciated the fact that the account was in Jaycee Dugard's own words -- while there may have been some artistry missing from her straight-forward account, it felt much more genuine than if a ghost writer had shined up her words and dramatized the already harrowing situations.

This book isn't really a "must read", but I would suggest it to people who enjoy memoirs or would like a look behind one of the biggest news stories in the past ten years.
