On February 4, 1974, Patty Hearst, a senior in college and heiress to the Hearst family fortune, was kidnapped by a ragtag group of self-styled revolutionaries calling itself the Symbionese Liberation Army. The already sensational story took the first of many incredible twists on April 3, when the group released a tape of Patty saying she had joined the SLA and had adopted the nom de guerre "Tania."

This was at times compelling, and others not-so-much and a bit too detailed. But overall, it was an interesting read into a huge incident that happened in the 1970's, an incident of which I knew just about nothing. I really enjoyed the narration of this and even went so far as to try and find what other books he narrated. I'd recommend the audio, definitely!

This book is quite riveting for the most part and very meticulously researched. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is that I had to quit listening to it. I could not spend anymore time with such dysfunctional people, including Patty Hearst.
