Book Description

7 Nov 2013

'It all happened so quickly. One minute I was squatting on the bare earth, preoccupied with popping pea pods. The next, I saw the flash of a black hand and white cloth, and before I even had a chance to cry out it had sailed towards my face, and completely covered it . . .'

In 1954, in a remote South American village, a four-year-old girl was abducted and then abandoned deep in the Colombian rainforest.

So begins the incredible true story of Marina Chapman, who went on to spend several years alone in the jungle, her only family a troop of capuchin monkeys. Using instinct to guide her, she copied everything they did and soon learned to fend for herself.

At around ten years old, a completely feral Marina was returned to civilisation by hunters, who sold her to a brothel. After being enslaved and beaten daily, she escaped - to live the perilous existence of a Colombian city street kid.

Marina's life as a wild child wasn't over. In some ways, it had only just begun. This is her astonishing story.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing 28 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this with a reading group and although none of us would recommend the book to others it did prompt a lively discussion about the authenticity of the story - perhaps you need to read the story for yourself to make up your mind.

3.0 out of 5 stars Was an ok read 6 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A friend told me this book was amazing and I should def read it. Not sure if it was my cup of tea as I am usually into my rom com/drama type books but gave it a go.

While this was an incredible story I just found something a bit unbelievable about it all....but that just could be my take on it.

Think it could overall just not be my cup of tea.

I chose this rating because Marina is completely honest. She survived due to being observant and resilient. She has the most incredible emotional intelliegence imagainable! I would recommend this book to anyone interested in people and or monkeys.
