Pain and Gain - The Untold True Story Book Review
The True Story Behind The Movie Pain & Gain
This is the untold true story of one citizen’s pointless torture and month-long captivity. The story, formerly miss-told if not utterly overlooked, has been made into a feature film. Even as a dark comedy, there is little amusement to be found in human suffering. The sick and twisted minds of Mr. Schiller’s captors would be fodder for the Darwin Awards if the results were not so alarmingly inhumane. Physical, mental and emotional torture, as well as sensory deprivation and starvation, the prisoner of war-like conditions differed only in the fact that Mr. Schiller was completely alone.
Mr. Schiller chronicles his story in tortuous detail. His humiliation, pain and suffering at the hands of these perverted social misfits is a shocking revelation.What is it like to be imprisoned in near dungeon-like conditions? All this mayhem on American soil toward the end of the last millennium.Greed, lust for power and the desire to inflict pain and misery were the apparent motivating forces behind this gruesome incident.Truly a harrowing tale and one that not only you won’t soon forget but will uplift and inspire you!!
This book had my attention from beginning to end! I seriously could not put this book down. Everything Marc Schiller went through during the month he was kidnapped was just so awful. It is almost hard to believe the things some people will do because of greed. It must have been heartbreaking to know that someone he helped and trusted would want to hurt, steal, and try to murder him. This book made me realize that everyone should pay more attention to what is going on in the world around them and really think about who they should trust but also appreciate what you do have and the people who love you. Even though no one believed his story at first I am so glad that in the end the criminals got what they deserved. I really loved reading Pain and Gain and think it is a book everyone should read.
