Craving travel and excitement, young Canadian Amanda Lindhout embarked on a career as a freelance journalist. But her adventures came to a terrifying halt in Somalia when she and a friend were kidnapped. With writer Sara Corbett, Lindhout has written an account of her 460 days as a hostage, telling a harrowing story that demonstrates her courage, tenacity, and resilience. The choice of Lindhout to narrate her own memoir adds enormous intimacy. She displays control of a broad emotional range, including clear, objective reporting of her torture and deprivation. Her measured pacing and effective use of tone provide immediacy and texture. This "can't-stop-listening" experience is not to be missed. M.O.B.
