Secrets in the Cellar book. Room was loosely based on this story, Josef Fritzl's story, the story of an Austrian father who builds an elaborate dungeon under his house where he later imprisons his own daughter, who he repeatedly rapes eventually fathering seven children by her during her captivity, three of which he brings up to live with him and his wife, three which are left to. live in the dungeon (never knowing anything outside of their tiny dungeon world), and one which dies.

This author did a great job in creating a full picture of this twisted family for the reader to understand. He offers a full background from when the father (abductor) was a young boy, until he's an older man living a split life with two families. One with his wife and children upstairs and one with his daughter "second wife" and her/his children in the cellar.

This is one of the most horrific abduction novels I have read. The incestuous aspect of the story adds a whole new level of twisted to this poor girl's experience. I don't know how anybody could survive that many years trapped in such a small space underground being continually raped and beaten by their own father. It pains me that "in retrospect" the neighbors and tenants realized something wasn't right. How frustrating that must have been for the poor girl to learn once she escaped. It is an absolutely disgrace that the father had a sexually deviant criminal history that continued to get ignored. Everything about this book seemed wrong - from the mother ignoring beatings and rapes going on under their own roof, to the tenants, to even the friends of Elizabeth who knew she was getting raped all along. Shame on all of them.

I hope these children and this woman are sometimes able to enjoy life and freedom even though their lives have been completely destroyed by this monster. I hope these books bring awareness to the people who read them that this could happen anywhere, to anybody and sometimes a nosey neighbor isn't such a bad thing.

In Secrets in the Cellar author John Glatt tells the horrifying story of Josef Fritzl an Austrian engineer, husband and father who tricked his daughter Elisabeth into becoming a prisoner in a cellar turned dungeon that was situated right below his own house. Fritzl would habitually rape and physically abuse his own daughter for the next twenty-four years as well as fathering children with her. Some of these children who he considered weaklings and an annoyance he took from his daughter and took them upstairs where they would be raised by his wife Rosemarie who thought that Elisabeth had run away to join a cult and was abandoning her children on her parents doorstep for them to raise. This was far from the truth of course and only later would Rosemarie learn the true horror of what her husband of fifty plus years had done to his daughter and their family as a whole.

The book chronicles Fritzl's abusive childhood at the hands of his Mother in a Nazi controlled Austria. The reader sees in detail how Fritzl went throughout his life from exhibitionist, to rapist, and finally the horrific things that he did to his daughter Elisabeth and the children he had with her. It was shocking to me the detail that Fritzl put into building his daughter's prison in the cellar; it took him six years to plan it all out and he seemed to start work on it after the first time he raped Elisabeth when she was only eleven. That was one of the things that really disturbed me because he was willing to do that to his own child. Being a mother myself I cannot fathom how a parent could do that to their child; and even after he was caught and in prison he still referred to his daughter Elisabeth as his 'second wife' and did not seem to think he had done anything wrong and felt no remorse for the atrocities he had committed.

The book is very well written; the only reason it was hard to read was because of the content you were reading about which is so outside the realms of what a normal human being could even think about perpetrating and this man seemed to do it with no problem; its really disturbing to think that people like this are in the world and probably walk by us everyday without our knowledge. The fact that he was able to keep Elisabeth and three of her children as prisoners for two plus decades without getting caught is very scary to me. That he could pass himself off as a good father, husband, and provider just chills me to the bone.

The book was easy to read and although I don't read a lot of books in this genre I perceived this book to be well put together and thoroughly researched. It was not just dry facts being listed for the reader it had a rhythm and pace to it that makes me respect the author and his writing ability. If you enjoy true crime novels or are a fan of books in this genre then this is a book you should pick up. It really shows a side of the human psyche that is disturbing to realize that someone living in normal society can be that narcissistic, perverted, and just plain EVIL.

I know this is a story that I won't be getting out of my head for a while in the foreseeable future.

This book is almost well written. It's an account of the events of the Fritzl family, with facts and quotes pulled from witnesses, neighbors, and news reports. It doesn't appear that the author has had contact with the actual victims or perpetrator, however. It leaves me to wonder who has profited from book sales?

I thought initially that it might be the product of a native Austrian journalist, and that something would be lost in translation. However the author is British and has worked in America as well. So, no excuses for the lack of editing.

Phrases, facts, and even sentences and paragraphs are often repeated from chapter to chapter. And not for effect, as one might expect. The result is an unpleasant feeling of de ja vue and annoyance. And not for effect, as one might expect. I additionally found some factual errors/inconsistencies, such as a child's age and misspelling of one of the names. I would expect to see this more polished.

Also, there are no pictures as the description suggests.

My final note is that the final pages attempt to explain the "why" of the horrors. I appreciate that this is how the book began, and the author has come full circle. However, it makes me feel like it gives more credence to the horrible man who committed these crimes. I would have liked to see it end on a positive note, in respect to hopes for a brighter future for the family.

Overall, if you're looking for details of this horrific crime in Austria and quotes from the need, this is it. However be warned that reading it has left me with a bitter taste in my mouth, and not just for the evil man who committed the crimes described.
