I enjoy reading books like this, and I have read quite a few. Allan Hall seems to have written a book based on rumours and interviews with people who knew Elisabeth as a 17 year old girl. His perspective also seems based on mediareports and unofficial states from policemen knowing the case. All together, this made the book way to commercial in my regards, and I found myself skimming through some of the pages. I hope Elisabeth Fritzl one day will find the courage to write her side of the story, like Natascha Kampusch did, because this book did not meet my expectations at all.
