Description

"Betancourt's riveting account...is an unforgettable epic of moral courage and human endurance." -Los Angeles Times
In the midst of her campaign for the Colombian presidency in 2002, Ingrid Betancourt traveled into a military-controlled region, where she was abducted by the FARC, a brutal terrorist guerrilla organization in conflict with the government. She would spend the next six and a half years captive in the depths of the Colombian jungle. Even Silence Has an End is her deeply moving and personal account of that time. The facts of her story are astounding, but it is Betancourt's indomitable spirit that drives this very special narrative-an intensely intelligent, thoughtful, and compassionate reflection on what it really means to be human.

Riveting

account of Ingrid Betancourt's ordeal of six and a half years of her life spent held illegally as a hostage in the jungles of Colombia. The terrorist organization (FARC) which held her treated her with extreme brutality to the point of near death. She & fellow hostages were viewed as no better than animals. When you read it, which I highly recommend, you will be moved, worried, saddened, every emotion she felt at that time. Once you begin to read you will not want to put it down! PS-after everything she has been though, I'm just as disgusted by the behavior of some people on the "outside" as that of the terrorists. Where is the compassion? The respect? The humanity?

Amazing

I could not put the book down. So many emotions are felt while reading this book sadness, rage, hope, compassion, humility, excitement. Ingrid is human and should be respected.
