One thought on “House of Horrors

  1. This book was written so soon after the horrific discovery that it reads like a reporting of the issue and provides no insight on how such a brutal and horrible act could happen.

  3. Buona ricostruzione dei fatti, ma non mi sono ritrovata molto nello stile di scrittura Risulta un po dispersivo.


  4. Fascinating subject but unfortunately very repetitive and badly written You could read the newspaper clips from the time and obtain the same information in less time A shame that the book doesn t do justice to such a horrific tragedy.


  5. Suddenly I stopped and had a look to the title of the book Shock and terror is on my face How could a father whose suppose to protect and lead us from the villain in this world yet he was the one we must fight on Gosh, that day after my bff and me end up to the book store before we begin our noon class for national exam prep we chat all the way for the romance corner but we made our way to the true story side I decided to buy this book, i want to know why why why why Elizabeth must got the hell [...]


  6. I think this was an informative read It did the job of telling the story of the House of Horrors a girl that was kept by her father in a dungeon under his house from the time she was 18 For 24 years And then fathered seven children with her And made her birth them all on her own In the dungeon And the dungeon was so low ceiling ed that she and one of her male children developed stoops Some people are so so sick and depraved and cruel And then to make excuses for their behaviour just makes it all [...]


  7. I brought this book because I was interested in the content, and sympathize with the case However the book was poorly written the author is over doing it and repetitive, he gives everything away in the first two or three chapters then he rinses and repeats through out the entire book The only chapter that got me emotionally bound was the one where Fritzle explains his lack of remorse The remainder of the book was just frustratingly written there are only so many words you can use for the term in [...]


  8. setelah 24 tahun dikurung di bawah tanah oleh ayahnya yang gila itu menurut aku, akhirnya elisabeth dan anaknya bisa menghirup udara bebas dan lega selama 24 th dikurung di bawah tanah di rumahnya sendiri elisabeth telah menjadi budak sex ayahnya sendiri tanpa bisa melawan, melahirkan tujuh anak juga sendirian, sungguh aku tidak bisa membayangkannya bagaimana bisa elisabeth melahirkan anak2nya sendirian, dan menurut aku elisabeth sungguh wanita hebat kisah penyekapan dirinya selama 24 tahun itu [...]


  9. An interesting read for almost half of the book It is repetitive though remained interesting About half way through, the book was basically repeated from the start and it was obvious the author was trying to drag it out This book would have been much better if it were condensed and edited professionally The book appears to have been written without any research outside of court notes, newspaper or other media articles or a few interviews with neighbours and tenants I got the impression someone w [...]


  10. The truest definition of living a nightmare.The depths of depravity,Narcissism and utter lack of conscience make this so called man the very personification of evil.Yet through it all there is a story of strength and courage and will to survive that will bring tears to even the hardest of readers eyes.A story of terror and inspiration that will amaze.


  11. After finished this book, I was completely shocked How could this even happened in our world People are going crazy and it makes me sad Living in our society, make me look at the people with different perspective This book is hard reading and people with soft personality will not be able to function normally after finishing this book.


  12. This story was written in a very matter of fact manner and to me, read like a list of facts than giving any real insight to the horrible crime Would probably be a good reference for future articles.


  13. Como n o consigo resistir a feiras de livros com promo es, s vezes compro coisas sem ler bem do que tratamPensei que este livro era o relato da sobrevivente mas n o, uma investiga o feita pelo autor Fala de praticamente tudo mas o que eu queria era a hist ria na primeira pessoa


  14. Only giving 5 stars for the writing and research Nigel did If I start talking about this true story i will get very upset as this girl didnt deserve this atall


  15. Chilling to the core This will stay with me for a very long time My heart goes out to Elizabeth her family, God bless you all




  16. I was too scared with what happened in true story of Elisabeth and her basement children, his writing is good, so detailed and so much describing how bad it was.
