Showing Rating details. Sort order. Jan 27, Molly rated it it was ok. Saw the authors speak at a library event. I think that Tanya Kach has been manipulated by men her entire life and her lawyer is no exception. The story is, of course, compelling, but the writing and editing are abysmal. If Kach's lawyer was really doing what was in the best interest of Kach as he says motivates all his decisions he would have left the writing up to a real writer, which would likely have led to the book being published by a major publisher.
It is a horrifying story of negligenc Saw the authors speak at a library event. It is a horrifying story of negligence and indifference.

The Tanya Nicole Kach Story , written with her participation by her former attorney, Lawrence Fisher, I feel the need to admit my biases right away -- that I find stories about girls who are kidnapped and sexually abused within suburban-home dungeons for years and years to be just so upsetting, most often I won't even pick such books up, and I have to confess that even here all I could manage to do was sort of skip around and give the manuscript a light scanning.
I mean, I did definitely read enough to have an opinion, because I wanted to be able to say with authority that I found it competently written, which it absolutely is; but if like me you're one of those people who can't even have tabloid news shows running in the background of a room without succumbing to tears, this is not the book for you, but rather one for all you more steel-hearted Nancy Grace fans and the like.
I'm glad that Kach was finally able to escape her situation, and without a doubt I recommend this title to fans of true-crime books and "To Catch a Predator" type shows; but in this case I unfortunately cannot give you too much more detailed a review than that, in that I was barely able to even read more than a few pages at a time without wincing and putting the book back down. It comes recommended but with that caution in mind. Out of Oct 12, Melissa rated it really liked it. True story that never had to happen or at least go on as long as it did.
The school's principal knew of the improper relationship and never said a word. Even after she was rescued Tanya's parents were not supportive emotionally, physically, financially. They treated her as a burden to them. Oct 15, Rachel rated it really liked it.
What an interesting story. How sad that no one came to her rescue and that her childhood was taken away. Makes me mad. Oct 19, Stephanie Cram rated it it was ok.
Feb 24, Kerry Casey rated it did not like it Shelves: Victim of captivity? Or mentally unstable teen looking for love and affection who gets more and more unstable and bored as time goes on so decides to write her story and call it a ten year 'captivity'?
What starts as a well written, cut to the chase summary of Tanya Kach's life and mental state before meeting her 'captor', Due to the lact of affection and stablility in her home life , turns into an almost quickly scribbled down list of dates and facts which is told in random se Victim of captivity? What starts as a well written, cut to the chase summary of Tanya Kach's life and mental state before meeting her 'captor', Due to the lact of affection and stablility in her home life , turns into an almost quickly scribbled down list of dates and facts which is told in random sequence without a hint of detail or emotion.
I would maybe feel differently if she and the writer whom she collaborated with actually TOLD the audience about her life while living with Tom Hose. Hose is obviously an unstable, lowlife, however nothing is even detailed or explained about the captivity that could make Tanya's words 'psychologically tortured and sexually degregraded' justifiable in context to this book she has written.
And considering she was able to go on shopping trips, start work in a thrift shop and as she even says 'I decided to leave the house for a little while'.. It is very very hard to be able to call this book and her story a story of captivity By page 72 she's already explained why she took a liking to Hose, which as a reader I can genuinely understand and I also feel genuinely sorry for as her parents and living situation was rubbish to say the least.
She has already had consensual sex with him granted she was a minor and Hose is in the wrong and in those 72 or so pages we have already spanned nearly 9 years in 'captivity' without any actual detail except having to have relieved herself in a bucket which she knew she would be doing when she chose to live with him.
Even when police enter the house, or she goes shopping yes she was allowed on multiple shopping trips over 10 years. The easiest thing from a reader's perspective would have been to make some noise to let Hose's parents know that she was living day to day in his bedroom, if she wanted to find a way out.
So far I feel her story takes away from the numerous other stories I have read by women who truly were kidnapped and held in captivity against their will. This situation,- although Hose as an adult is completly wrong in abusing his authority over a minor, - barely resembles a hostage situation. Within the 10 years she also agreed to marry him. It seems to be an obvious case of a misguided feeling of'love' situation,- to - I'm bored now and feeling mentally unstable so Im going to say I was being held captive.
While I understand Mental instability and it is justified given being isolated in one room for so long although she did take many shopping trips outside the home - It's hard to seriously look at this as a story of captivity. There are barely any details of the captivity and abuse she seems to have suffered.
It's very randomly written and goes from her captor doing his normal thing such as going to school then coming home,.. I mean WTF? How about actually letting the audience know HOW that came about? There's No lead up of his treatment toward her or anything. Sorry, but in both story content and writing style I feel it takes away from those amazing true life stories of terrible captivity, such as Colleen Stan, Natacha Kampuch and Jaycee Dugard. Oct 12, L.
Carrington rated it it was amazing. Tanya was left to live in a second floor bedroom and occasionally the closet , eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and drinking Faygo soda, or whatever he smuggled to her from his dinner.
A bucket was used to relieve herself. At first, Tanya thought she was in love with her captor, brainwashed into believing her family no longer wanted or needed her.
When asked by anyone who approached them, both kidnaper and hostage would say Tanya met him when Hose was 18 and working as a security guard at a mall.

Yes, the book lacks depth and gory details of the victim's captivity, however it does give enough detail to see how wrong the system is and how everyone truly failed Tanya before, during and after her abduction.
I feel cold and disturbed after reading this from start to finish. Unlike Tanya's optimism, I do not feel any faith in humanity after finishing her story, but I applaud her strength while at the same time wondering how much her lawyer has gained from the experience.

Dec 06, Lori rated it did not like it. It filled with Tanya using alot of "psycho-babble" and after her rescue it is all lawyer talk.. This book had no depth when I'm sure it could have had lots seeing as this was such a terrible thing that happened to her. Google her name and you'll probably find the same as whats in this book an it will take you less time to read it.
Aug 22, Jackie rated it really liked it.
Read this book quickly. Makes you wonder how many other kids fall through the cracks and if others are even in this type of situation. Hate that those in authority like the police and school system got away with their neglect.
Hope she's doing well. Let this be a warning to parents! If you don't take the time to pay attention to your child, someone else will, and they may end up scarred for life because of it! Sadly I feel that Tanya will spend the rest of her life being used by those around her!
May 12, Courtney Spearman rated it liked it. Holy cow. This was the most dramatic, back and forth book I've ever read. I've never heard of a family or life being as dramatic, crazy, or emotionally unstable as Tanya's. It felt like this book was never going to end. Thankfully it did.
Apr 10, Julie Driscoll rated it it was amazing. I read this book really fast which is not typical for me.

In many ways, Ms Kach comes across as an ordinary person, but she had a particularly unpleasant set of things happen to her. And while she writes of them dispassionately, setting them out step by step, the sequence was harrowing.
Especially as there is rarely foreshadowing, so sudden about-faces from friends come across as a slap in the face. The story was unpleasant, but the writing was gripping. Even still, I had to put it aside and do other things af I like reading stories of ordinary people. Even still, I had to put it aside and do other things after every other chapter. But this isn't the strength of the book.
What came through most strongly was the story about a young woman holding on to her faith in her God, even when she had lost faith in herself and humanity. She didn't write about other peoples' relationships with God, nor was there any sense of preaching.
There was just a profound sense of absolute belief, a foundation to her world that didn't need questioning, it just was, which I found very interesting. This is quite a powerful book, despite the candy floss writing, but it is also quite distressing to read. While I can't in good faith recommend it, I don't regret reading it.
I first learned about Tanya while watching an episode of I Survived. Her story was heartbreaking and I wanted to learn more.
Her parents, the school and the police all failed to care for her and protect her from an evil man. I hope that many learn the lessons from Tanya's life so other children can be spared the pain that she went through. I am happy that she seems to have finally gotten on her feet and is living a good life with the help of her church and friends. While her lawyer seems to have b I first learned about Tanya while watching an episode of I Survived.
While her lawyer seems to have been her protector, I don't think he was the right person to write this book. I think Tanya's story could've had a much bigger impact if she'd had the help of a professional writer.
That said, I would still recommend it to people who read true-crime. Pretty good! Jul 27, Zazzu rated it did not like it Shelves: I do feel for this poor woman's ordeal but I get a whiff of an unpleasant personality on her part which seems to have made many of her relationships "sour". Likely she started as a troubled kid and obviously her situation could not have improved it.
I do find it shocking though that the police bungled the case so badly and that the statue of limitations was allowed to run out before she could sue them.

Her school and police both failed her badly and no matter what kind of person she is, she deserved more.
I would also call Hose a "person of interest" in the other girl's killings due to the similarities between the girls and again, shame on whoever dropped that ball in the police department. They don't run because kids accept and adapt the reality they're forced into. So though it seems like they've got all the freedom in the world, they don't.
