Ingrid Betancourt Even Silence Has An End Book 2010
Ingrid Betancourt Even Silence Has An End Book 2010 – A horrid tale of a Columbian senator and presidential candidate, being kidnapped, held hostage, having everything taken away from her, and fighting to keep her identity as a name not a number seems like the idea of a top fictional novel. For Ingrid Betancourt, the book she wrote is far from fiction, as she spoke about her ordeal in an emotional interview.
“For me it was like taking away my oxygen,” Betancourt says now, speaking in a highly emotional interview upon the release of “Even Silence Has an End,” her powerful, often agonizing memoir of life in captivity.
“There are things you do because you have to. You don’t always calculate the consequences. And sometimes you do very stupid things because of that.” Eventually, though, the captors backed down.
The book, titled ‘Even Silence Has An End’, is the tale of her capture and life as a prisoner in the jungles of Columbia. Betancourt faced a life and future not many of us could fathom, and which not many of us would survive to tell the tale. The book has already been claimed as “a classic of Colombian history and literature” by Hector Abad, one of the country’s most influential living writers.
