Ingrid Betancourt ¹ 5 review

review Même le silence a une fin ä PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ingrid Betancourt ¹ 5 review Enchaînée par le cou à un arbre privée de toute liberté celle de bouger de s'asseoir de se lever; celle de parler ou de se taire; celle de boire ou de manger; et même la plus élémentaire celle d'assouvir les besoins de son corps J'ai pris consci. UPDATE 21716 I m not trying to claim some false sense of importance by writing this I m well aware that this is just goodreads I doubt that the author has read my review God I hope not anyway and I know that very few people will care about this update Still I couldn t live with myself if I didn t address a few things The only review of Even Silence Has an End on goodreads worth your time is this one I m ashamed of my review and I ll eventually pull it But the only thing cowardly than posting this review in the first place would be to delete it and pretend it never happenedBut I can t just keep crying about it either It s better to just own it So here goes In 2010 I read Even Silence Has an End but I formed my opinion of Ingrid Betancourt from the books articles and interviews I read about her after the fact That opinion rather than my feelings about the book itself was the driving force behind my review 6 years ago Last week I attended a A hosted by Ingrid Betancourt I was excited to meet the person who wrote one of the best books I ve ever read Plus I had a uestion I d wanted to ask her since I first read her memoir all those years ago And I d never let go of that conclusion I d come to 6 years earlier I figured that Ingrid Betancourt was yet another monster among us a Franco Colombian Claire Underwood of sortsI was wrong I ve met all sorts of celebrated monsters over the years from the ultra famous to everyday nobodies I know when I m dealing with a liar narcissist or sociopath Ingrid Betancourt isn t one of them There was no charm magnetism poise or presence about her no agenda no performance no attempt to disarm the crowd And when I asked her my uestion which I immediately regretted doing I fully expected to be upbraided or at least met with a dismissive response Instead she was gracious enough to spend a significant amount of time trying to answer me And what about her answer anyway It was revealing It was imperfect It was raw and unrehearsed jagged at times sometimes rational other times contradictory yet it was clearly the truth as she saw it In short everything about her answer was human Everything about her was human And if everything about her was human that means that when I wrote this review I tore down one of us Now who s the monster Well There s nothing uite like your own misdirected cruelty to give you pause throw you into an existential crisis make you hate yourself etc etc This review has been here for 6 years for anyone who cared to read it Allow me to reposition it for the next person who stumbles across it and offer a counterpoint to my former 20 something self who wrote itThe real narrative goes like this Ingrid Betancourt is the victim She was kidnapped by terrorists held captive and brutalized for 65 years It s wrong to imply that she s responsible for the things that happened to her Her decision to enter FARC territory could have been for any number of reasons none of which matter Nothing changes the fact that she s the victim She didn t ask for any of it No one not even the aforementioned monsters who walk among us deserves to suffer what Betancourt and her fellow captives did The world simply victimized Ingrid Betancourt again International fame was built around her while she was in captivity and it was thrust upon her when she was rescued Disturbingly all it took for her to fall out of favor was something that most would applaud she criticized the government That took the form of angering one Colombian politician and then offending some Colombian judges by seeking compensation for her kidnapping The other hostages in captivity with Betancourt also sued the Colombian government you just didn t hear about it Oh and 3 or 4 people wrote books saying she wasn t a very nice person while she was in captivity To build someone up especially a woman only to smack her down for misbehaving It s predictable it happens every day and it s purely abusive And I just have to add I feel so stupid that I didn t see it happening with this one that I took that tired narrative as truth and swallowed it hook line and sinker and made it my own How Betancourt or anyone else behaved while in captivity is a stupid thing to debate It s irrelevant and probably only made it into print to sell books Those of us who fell into that trap need to do better lest we also want to debate the character of Aung San Suu Kyi Nelson Mandela Holocaust survivors et al Despite everything she s endured Betancourt has never acted like a victim Surviving 65 years of captivity in the jungle is bad ass in itself But she didn t stop there and call it good She went on to pen a memoir so well written that parts of it border on sublime She recently released a novel and she s pursuing a PhD That s all pretty rockstar if you ask me Faulting her for capitalizing on her fame is ridiculous especially when her message is one of peace and forgiveness That she never used her ordeal to push an agenda like say burning down the jungle and firebombing the fuckers that wronged her is admirable It s so easy to be some hyper critical nobody spouting her suspicions and assumptions on a dumb website like goodreads It takes a lot courage to be in the public eye do cool things with your life and bear it all with dignity Like I said I don t presume that Ingrid Betancourt has read my review or would care if she did But just in case Ingrid I m so sorryI can t undo the cruelty that has sat on this page for 6 yearsBut I can add a few edits to show what I think of it now See revisions belowSo let s talk about this bookFirst a little background about the story it s the memoir of Ingrid Betancourt a Colombian senator who was running for president of that country when she was kidnapped by FARC guerrillas and held captive for 6 years She lived through sheer hell including infighting among her fellow hostages swarms of biting jungle insects marches during life threatening illnesses through the never ending and sitting for months at a time with her neck chained to a tree In a country where the guerrillas usual MO is to storm the homes of politicians kidnap and kill them Betancourt who knowingly wandered into FARC territory is lucky to be alive Even Silence Has an End is one of the most beautiful books that you will ever read Much of the memoir reads like poetry Freedom such a precious jewel one we were prepared to risk our lives for would lose all its brilliance if it were to be worn in a life of regret Our words echoed in the air beneath a heavenly dome that wore the dust of diamonds sprinkled alongside the constellations of our thoughts Betancourt also reveals small glimpses of humanity that appeared in her jungle prison hell the guerrillas dancing and singing with the prisoners a hand grasped in the darkness at night in sheer terror and the touching words impulsively spoken when another prisoner is on the brink of death She will take you beyond the depths of despair to a place without hope to times when she had given up on life could no longer eat and could barely stand up Betancourt is than a gifted writer and her words will charm you seduce you and likely leave you holding her in great reverence And what about Ingrid Betancourt today She s beautiful She s charismatic She s a brilliant wealthy multi lingual icon with killer heels and lots of friends in high places She s part of the European jet set and has left two hot husbands in her wake Let s not forget that she s also a strong woman and an incredible survivor I want to believe her I really do But before we all get misty eyed and enad beyond the point of no return let s have a look at realityGetting kidnapped was the best thing that ever happened to Betancourt s career It launched her to international stardom scored her a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize the French love her than their wine and America is embracing her Her book deal landed her millions on three separate continents Two different films are being made about her ordeal Further for a cool 25000 a couple of first class airline tickets and hotel accommodations Betancourt will come and speak at any event She will justify why she tried to sue the very government that rescued her and explain away just why her fellow hostages including a former close friend Clara Rojas who was kidnapped with her can t stand her If you find one Colombian who isn t disgusted with Betancourt I ll buy you a Coke What is most disturbing about Betancourt s account of captivity is the fact that she s the most unreliable narrator since Humbert Humbert If you take Betancourt at face value then you likely also believe that Lolita really was a 12 year old slut who wanted the old man to give it to her like a bad girl you can stop reading here She seems to suffer from delusions so strong that she actually believes them Her accounts read like hazy visions conjured up in an alarmingly high fever even the sexual assault by nameless faceless captors in the misty green airs of the humid jungle starts to make you wonderand it gets worse Betancourt describes heart to heart conversations with her female captors that sound fabricated She tells of a chance meeting with a nameless peasant straight out of central casting who warned Ingrid of visions of grave danger Eyeroll She describes bathing Clara Rojas s newborn Clara whom Ingrid has been fighting with for years then asks Betancourt to be the child s godmother Right Sure she did Especially after Ingrid verbally trashed Clara for the first uarter of the book snidely inferring that Rojas was sinking into madness Clara tells a very different story in her own memoir of captivity At best these things are contrived at worst they are blatant lies I would never put it past a politician to lie but Betancourt despite multiple claims to the contrary seems convinced of their veracity Someone needs to pass the lithiumWhen not attacking her fellow hostages on every page Betancourt slips in unnecessary petty details for an extra sting such as Rojas leaving the bathroom an unspeakable mess or another captive bragging about the cost of his engagement ring One wonders just why these things needed to be in print other than the fact that Betancourt is clearly out for blood Our catty hero redeems herself in other ways however by teaching her captors French suuuuuureee and protesting until prisoners chains are removed uh huh Her former companions in captivity are so charmed by her that one wants to sue her for libel one hates her than all other humans on earth and one has said Let s not make symbols and icons out of women who aren t The only fans Betancourt has left besides the myriad of Hollywood actors and international heads of state are the 3 boyfriends she had while in captivity What we have here is a book written by a woman whose personal trauma and highly cultivated public persona are battling it out on the page The public persona wins of courseRead this beautiful book Enjoy it Savor it Just try not to forget who you re really dealing with Fogged Up Fairy Tale your time is this one I m ashamed of my review and I ll eventually pull it But the only thing cowardly than posting this review in the first place would be to delete it and pretend it never happenedBut I can t just keep crying about it either It s

While this is a very interesting story and one that everyone should know about the writing is so long winded that I could hardly finish the thing It is unfortunate that the story is so convoluted that I could barely keep a time line in my head You would think it would be as simple as I got caputred and then this stuff happened to me and then I was rescued with maybe some flashbacks tossed in No She jumps from one year to another and back again unneccessarilyIt seemed especially after I read the book authored by the three American men she was rescued with that this was a very self indulgent story and one that she wrote to improve her public self image
