    One thought on “Hope: A Memoir of Survival in Cleveland”

    1. First of all, I have nothing but admiration for these THREE women who survived this I say THREE because while occasionally thrown into the story as an annoying afterthought, Michelle Knight was also in that house the longest and endured the worst experience While they did ask Michelle if she wanted to participate in this book, she said she wanted to tell her own story If they took offense to that, shouldn t they of all people understand everyone needs to heal in their own personal way I do have [...]

    2. I m sure y all are clamoring for my insightful review of this, Amanda Berry s and Gina De Jesus harrowing account of a decade in captivity in Cleveland and the reprise of sorts of fellow abductee Michelle Knight s book,Finding Me ok, that was sarcasm, obviously only the weirdest true crime voyeurs would relish reading about those girls horrid plight Or reading about Elizabeth Smart s ordeal in Utah, or Jaycee Dugard s eerily similar, equally horrific abduction in Northern California I m a sucker [...]

    3. AmazingAs a sexual assault survivor I often sit and wonder why It s hard to get up and just live sometimes These women are a inspiration to all survivors Thanks to them all the old backlogged DNA cases are finally getting tested After almost 15 years I have received closure for my own case I want to thank these courageous women for sharing their journey.

    4. This is one of the most riveting books I have ever read.We need to suspend everyone s right to privacy for one day and check all basements, bedrooms, attics, etc for kidnap victims This book shows that if a twisted mind is careful enough, it can hide despicable horrors for years right under their neighbor s nose.While this book is riveting, it is very, very hard to read If you are sensitive to hearing descriptions of acts driven by pure evil, this is not the book for you.De Jesus and Berry were [...]

    5. I don t know how these girls survived this tragedy My heart goes out to them and I hope they continue to stay strong and heal Heartbreaking

    6. This was an intense read, but it was always going to be This is one of those cases that has stuck with me As news of the Cleveland Three broke, I was in the midst of a career change I was applying to a program that would get me my degree in Crime Analysis, and I wanted this because I wanted so badly to work on missing persons cases This case steeled me and gave me drive, even in the midst of a horrible bout of depression at the time of my career change Someday I hope to use my analytic skills on [...]

    7. This book was the account of the horrible kidnappings from the two well known victims Amanda Berry and Gina Dejesus.This book truly touched me as I m sure it has touched everyone whose ever read it However, I definitely identify with Michelle Knight s book and not just because I read her book first but because her story was much, much tragic And though Michelle and Gina were chained together for years and years Michelle was in this book as like another inanimate detail It made her story that [...]

    8. So I have been reading a lot audiobooks because of work and this is one of the ones I chose This is about Amanda Berry and Gina de Jesus who were kidnapped and imprisoned by Ariel Castro for 10 years It was their memoire and a story they wrote together about their time there I was very shocked while listening to hear that they didn t really get along in the house I figured they would want to have bonded, but with the way things were set up I guess it makes sense I didn t love the audiobook if I [...]

    9. Really thought that this was going to be great.Surprisingly, Michelle Knight s book was way way better.There s a lot of I can t believe it s been X months, Y months, Z years in this book Much stronger personal connection w Michelle Knight in her book.Still worth reading, esp if you are from Cleveland, as I am Scary.Stranger than fiction stuff.

    10. This was a great book of well Hope, just as the title says How did this monster hide 4 girls including his own child for so long with no one, not a neighbor, not the postman, no one know These amazing ladies showed great courage and care for each other during their ordeal I can t imagine the despair and it s so sad that Amanda s parents did not live to see her freed with her daughter Lots of emotions go through my head but one very prevalent emotion is fear This has happened before and is than [...]

    11. So disturbing, disgusting, vile It s a shame this piece of garbage didn t suffer longer before killing himself This audiobook was very hard to listen to, but it was a great story God Bless Michelle, Gina, Amanda and little Jocelyn for being strong and enduring this horror.

    12. This was a well written book than Michelle Knight s It is still such a sad book, but again, I can not get over how positive these girls are after such horrendous things happened to them.

    13. An incredible read It matches up with Michelle Knights account and provides an indepth memoir of both Berry and Dejesus during this horrific time they had to endure this.

    14. As other reviewers have noted, it feels uncomfortable to give this book a star rating, given how generally horrifying a story it is It s a fascinating, compelling, moving story, though, ultimately it is one that I am glad Amanda Berry Gina DeJesus chose to tell in their own words The media has told their story for them, but it is only in reading about their experiences through their voices that we can learn about even a fraction of the horrors they went through at the hands of kidnapper Ariel Ca [...]

    15. I think it is important that these women have a voice and that is why I am glad they decided to tell their story Having read Michelle Knight s book, I can t help comparing it I think Michelle, having been kept in captivity the longest, copping the worst abuse and being older, she did need to tell her own story Michelle s book is much graphic and harrowing to read, due to the violence, mental abuse and forced abortions she had to endure Whilst this book does cover some of that, it is not as inte [...]

    16. This book was a very emotional read These girl are heroes Being a parent is challenging in the best of circumstances I commend Amanda for trying to her best to allow her daughter to experience as many normal day to day tasks as possible in that surrounding I personally think Michelle should have been discussed in this book as she was also in that house at that time I wish Amanda, Jocelyn, Gina and Michelle a wonderful future.

    17. Every time I read stories like these, I m so in awe of the resiliency of the human spirit These girls were treated like animals, and yet just two years after their ordeal ended, they seem remarkably grounded and happy and sure of themselves I hope the rest of their lives are filled with joy they ve than earned it.Well worth reading if you re interested, as is Michelle Knight s Finding Me A Decade of Darkness, a Life Reclaimed A Memoir of the Cleveland Kidnappings You ll notice that the third vi [...]

    18. Everyone in CLE needs to read this book Don t accept hearsay and rumor as the truth Learn this story from the women who lived it.I met one of the authors at a park shortly after she was freed two years ago At the time I was tongue tied and awkward and didn t know what to say to this woman who had survived so much and was now just trying to enjoy a sunny day with her family I m glad I was able to read her story.

    19. All 3 women who endured this captivity including Michelle Knight who has written a seperate memoir should be commended for their miraculous endurance and survival I will say that I didn t enjoy the structure of this book which shifts between Gina Amanda s accounts AND lengthy reporter pieces The shifting views of both women tends to focus on how much the women didn t like each other which, although i understand their treatment in captivity was varied, was strangely confronting to read about Unfo [...]

    20. There s not a whole lot to say about this book Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus spent about a decade as prisoners inside a twisted man s home along with Michelle Knight, who wrote her own book This is their account There are a ton of things that probably should ve been done differently stylistically in order to make an already compelling account that much better At the same time, I m betting that it was important that the young women who spent far too much of their young lives being raped and emot [...]

    21. Normally, I do not read books like these, but a friend recommended it I could not put the book down The women s diaries as well as the story as written by two Pulitzer Prize winning journalists was extremely compelling My heart is sick as the system failed these women from the beginning, but I am amazed by their resiliency.

    22. This isn t the kind of book I usually read, but I found myself riveted by the stories of these young women, who are all she roes for finding a way to persevere and survive under horrible conditions Worth the read, but expect nightmares and a tendency toward overprotecting your children afterward.

    23. For anyone who doesn t know, this book was the autobiographical account by two girls who were imprisoned for 10 years by a man named Ariel Castro They were subjected to view spoiler rape, torture, mind games, starvation, forced abortion or possibly forced to give live birth only to have their child murdered immediately by their captor and other atrocities hide spoiler A third girl was present, Michelle Knight, but Michelle decided to write her own book rather than participate in this book These [...]

    24. It may be because this occurred so close to home, or that my kids are about the same ages, but for whatever reason, I ve been drawn to this story from the moment they obtained their freedom Having read Michelle Knight s book last year, and now this one, I realize just how amazing these girls are While my kids were traveling the world, these girls were enslaved just two hours away The entire book is full of jaw dropping stories of cruel, disgusting incidences it s also full of hope and strength a [...]

    25. This book was disturbing, yet intriguing The torture these young women endured is unbelievable and heart wrenching After reading this book, I am inspired by the strength, courage, and resilience of these women They are true survivors This memoir truly put my own life in perspective I realized this I have never had a bad day Every problem I ve ever had seems so insignificant and trivial, compared to what these girls endured I am extremely lucky to have never experienced that level of suffering Th [...]

    26. This is without a doubt the most emotional book I have ever read I actually am not going to give the book a rating based on that fact alone I do not believe that a true story like this should ever be rated I also do not wish to rate the book because I do not want Ariel Castro copycats to see all these reviews and think of it as way to get fame.Although in saying that, all of these women are 5 star people The strength and perseverance that all three of them demonstrate on every single page really [...]

    27. I don t like to write reviews to a memoir but what I will say is these woman are strong I wouldn t be able to make it not 10 years

    28. This book was written together by Amanda Berry, and Gina DeJesus, Mary Jordan and Kevin Sullivan helped fill in the outside coverage Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus were two of the three young women who were held captive by Ariel Castro The other woman was Michelle Knight who wrote her own memoir last year Amanda and Gina were kidnapped one year apart in Cleveland Ohio by Ariel Castro Amanda was held against her will for ten years, and Gina for nine years Amanda was one day short of 17 years old, [...]

    29. Providing personal insight into a kind of terror most of us will thankfully never know, this is a unique and interesting story Modified from actual diary entries from Amanda and Gina, the book paints a picture of what life as a modern day sex slave is really like the horror, the shame, but also the driving sense of hope and unexpected and much needed moments of levity The girls narratives are interspersed with views from the outside, or details on the search for them, as told through news report [...]
