Very educational
13 September 2008 | by Unpretentious ReviewerSee all my reviews

The Patty Hearst kidnapping doesn't really get coverage in the history books. The people who lived through that era remember it well, but for the rest of us, this is a well detailed account by most of the living participants, except Ms. Hearst herself.

What will stick with me the most is hearing Patty Hearst's spoiled rich girl voice on the kidnapping recordings. Think Hillary Banks from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. She literally says in one of them, "Tell mother to stop wearing black. It's not helping." I can see how she gradually lost sympathy with the American public. At the same time though, she also sounds like she is reading prepared statements.

I'll give Patty a pass for doing what she needed to do to survive the kidnapping, and as you'll see, that was no small feat.
