I have to write a book review on a captivity story that I've read. The instructions are:
'Choose a captivity story you know or have read, and share your findings about it in the form of a book review. Summarize the reason for the captivity, the main events of the captivity, and how the captive felt about the jailers. How was this captivity different from A Man Called Horse? [short story]. It should be atleast 2 paragraphs long'

I havn't read a captivity story other than A Man Called Horse, and since that's the one the book is focusing on I can't use it. Can I get a link to a short captivity story that I can answer all these questions about?

Thanks

  6. It's captivity, yes. By the end of the story, it's clear that Fortunato is under Montresor's control since they enter "the vaults" (huge underground space serving as a wine cellar among other things!).
