Book Description

Seattle-area resident Tanya Rider crashed her blue SUV in 2007 and disappeared without a trace. Her husband, Tom, reported her missing and found himself at the center of a police investigation. Eight days after the crash, Tanya's rescue against all odds was covered by every major national media outlet. She had survived for more than a week in a wrecked car that had become her potential tomb. This is the story of her survival and her husband's fight for justice.

3.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Story, Poor Writing 10 April 2011
By JH - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I lived in WA my entire life, and I remember this story being in the news and how tragic it was. So, when I read there was a book out on what had happened I immediately jumped at the opportunity to get it. The story itself is absolutely amazing, the way Tanya struggled to survive for those eight days. Simply a miracle in my opinion, and I wish her the best.

However, I'm not reviewing her struggle, nor would I ever try to diminish the valiant effort she put in to survive that living nightmare. I am reviewing this book, and I was severely disappointed in it. The start was good, going through Tanya's story of survival and her recovery afterwards. But that only lasted the first 50% of the book. After I got through it I was confused as to why my Kindle only read 50%. The following half of the book was boring as hell. I felt like I was reading an essay rather than a book about this woman's amazing struggle to survive. It went on to talk about missing children, which isn't even related to the story.

I agree it is important to learn about the dangers, procedures, and everything else involved with missing persons to prepare yourself, but it was unnecessary in this book. I wanted to hear more from Tanya's thoughts, and her husband's struggle. If I wanted to read an essay on the processes the NCMEC goes through I would have looked it up on the Internet. I am disappointed that it veered so off topic.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings 30 Mar. 2012
By TrailRider - Published on
Verified Purchase
I ordered this book after having become intrigued with this story from seeing it on the "Disappeared" tv series. Since the tv show was focused on the search for Tanya without revealing until the very end what really had happened to her, the book was very helpful in filling in Tanya's side of the story, and her feelings and incredible physical struggles while trapped. The book also was very helpful in detailing the aftermath and the many challenges she faced in the recovery process. However, as other reviewers have also noted on here, the second half of the book deviated almost completely from Tom and Tanya's story, and consisted of chapters on searching for missing loved ones, survival tips if you are stranded, dealing with the aftermath of trauma, etc. All useful information no doubt, but not the reason I bought the book. Quite frankly, if I want survival tips, I'll buy a survival manual. So, while the story of Tom and Tanya Rider was interesting, I felt a bit cheated by the second half of the book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting story but... 14 May 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
it soon became tiresome to be constantly reminded about how thin and what a healthy eater Tanya was. I would have been more interested in her healing journey and how the experience affected her relationship with her husband.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad book, but there was unneeded "fluff" 3 July 2013
By S105 - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I saw the story of Tany Rider on a tv show, so I wanted to learn more about her story. The book was great, but toward the end there was a lot of info not tied to the Tanya Rider story. It would have been better if the book had been shorter rather than add other stuff as a "filler" which takes away from the book. Overall, the story was good.

1.0 out of 5 stars Redundant and tedious 9 Jan. 2014
By Country Girl - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I agree with one of the other reviews the repeating of how thin and heavy an eater Tanya was is annoying and detracting from a story that could have been interesting if it didn't seem to bog down and move slowly. Not an enjoyable quality read the publishing mistakes acted like continual speed bumps during the read. Very tedious.
