Today, I finished reading, “A Stolen Life” by Jaycee Lee Dugard.
This book is about the disappearance of Jaycee Dugard. It’s tells everything about her life living with the Garrido’s, Phillip & Nancy. She was abducted in 1991 at the age of 11. You may have already known about this story of what they reported in the media, but in this book she reveals a lot of things that nobody knows about. She explains everything in detail of how she lived her life, being held captive by the Garrido’s.
I must warn you that this book is not for everyone to read even though you may think it is. Do not read this book if you: 1) are offended at sexual content 2) can’t take adults sexual abuse against children (which she explains in detail in the book) 3) are scared of this happening to you 4) can’t take graphic material.
You may look at this as a positive and happy book but it really isn’t. It’s very dark and disturbing. I read this book in a few quick days because it was very short. The pacing was really fast, because the way she wrote this book sounded like a young child wrote it.
This book will make you feel sorry and sad for her. I sure did. I don’t think I could read a book like this again though. Even I felt a little frightened reading it.
Did I like it? Well hard to say really. This book was never meant to be liked or disliked, in my opinion. To me, I looked at it as an educational book. She teaches you about survival. If you’ve been abducted and kidnapped, it’s always possible to stay alive. Either to escape or get rescued, either way. She teaches you that just because a person goes missing doesn’t mean he/she could be dead. She proves that.
Feel free to read this book if you want, but to be honest, I wouldn’t recommend it.
For a long time now in this blog, I’ve been saying that Jaycee Lee Dugard is going to write about her life while being held captive by the Garrido family. Well, this should be no surprise to everyone, I was right. She wrote a book about the story and the book will hit bookstores everywhere this coming Tuesday. Yes, I will probably buy it. I too am interested of how she lived her life with the Garrido’s and I’m sure this book will reveal it all. It’s gonna be an interesting story for sure and looking forward to reading it.
When Casey Anthony does her book (you know she’s gonna do one too), I won’t be buying it. I won’t support anything Casey Anthony does ’cause I refuse to put my money toward a child killer. I don’t care if she starts an acting career or a music career or a porn career, etc. Whatever she does, I won’t support it. Neither should everyone else.
In other book releases, the 5th book to the “Song of Ice and Fire” Series (game of thrones) titled, “Dance With Dragons” will be out Tuesday as well, so I will definitely be picking that book up for sure. This Tuesday is a good release day for books.
I love to read. It’s one of my favorite hobbies. Have been for years ever since I was a kid. I’ve always been a proud book lover.
This was a smart move they did. I’m glad Phillip and Nancy both admitted to doing it, because if they kept maintaining their innocence, things would have gotten much worse. Glad the Garrido’s made it easy for everyone. Put these whack jobs away for a long ass time. They should be in prison and rot a long slow death behind bars.
They ruined an innocent girl’s life and Jaycee could have had a good life. Just look at this photo. Nancy and Philip definitely feel bad for what they did.
Jaycee would have to live with this for the rest of her life and it’s going to take a long while for her life to get better. She’ll have to start her life over again after this, and it won’t be easy. I wish Jaycee well.
I’m sure many other celeb news magazines were fighting for this. Trying to get the opportunity to get a recent photo of Jaycee Lee Dugard, but it appears, that People magazine won that opportunity.
My thoughts? I think she’s beautiful, absolutely gorgeous I must say. She hasn’t changed a bit since she was a little girl at 11.
I think she’s going to try and write an autobiography of her life, revealing about her past with Phillip Garrido and we’ll find out soon, which TV show will score an interview with Jaycee Lee Dugard.
Dateline NBC will probably try to get Jaycee for an interview, I bet Larry King and Oprah are trying to get her too.
And of course, Hollywood will probabaly do a movie on this as well.
Ever since this story broke the news yesterday, I’ve been pretty hooked to it. Been following every article since. It’s an amazing and incredible story, but disgusting and disturbing at the same time.
Now this poor woman who is 29 now have to live her entire life with her two kids fathered by her pervert kidnapper.
There is always hope for missing children. Never assume and never speculate that missing children are dead when they have been gone for years. They could either be held captive by psychos or they could have ran away to some far away place and out in hiding.
Is there hope that Stacy Peterson could be alive and well? What about Jaliek Rainwalker? Or maybe even Suzanne Lyall? All we can do is hope. No matter how long these people have been gone, they are never forgotten…ever.
Lets hope the assholes that took Jaycee will be locked away for the rest of their lives.
