Loved this book, I am buying it to read it again. I am sure I'll discover things I missed the first time.

Tom, Marc and Keith take turns recounting their years of captivity in the Colombian jungle by FARC terrorists, a story also covered by Ingrid Betancourt, the Colombian Presidential candidate. The comments made by the Americans are much more objective than Ingrid's - same story different perspective. The bond between the three men is a constant throughout the book. They are much less negative in their comments about their fellow hostages and it probably is a truer account of what really took place. It is a truly fascinating story about unbelievable strength and the quest for survival.
