A terrifying ordeal by Amanda Lindhout at the hands of her captors. Foolish of her to have gone to Somalia in the first place. Unfortunately, Linda is very coy about certain aspects of her treatment. How, for example, did she cope with the sexual abuse to which she was subjected daily. Her recovery since her release has been nothing short of miraculous. Her parents and friends made significant sacrifices in order to raise the ransom money. How have they coped financially since then? Surely, Ms Lindhout's (apparently successful) fund-raising efforts should be directed in part to recover the losses that they inevitably incurred in securing Linda's release.

Very telling from my point of view and, doubtless, from that of lots of folk who look back on the days of their youth with tinges of regret. Well written and eminently readable.

A bog-standard product of its time. Eminently readable .. plenty of sex, intrigue and violence ... but not great literature by any means.
