Since her book came out in April, Marina Chapman has been plagued by people and media criticizing her version of her life. To be honest, it is rather fantastical. She claims to have been abducted at the age of almost 5 and dumped in the Colombian jungle. She then befriended a family of monkeys and slowly starts to learn their way of life and their manner of communication. Chapman guesses that she lived in the jungle until she was about 10, where a couple of poachers found her and took her into a city and sold her to a brothel. Chapman then details the rest of her life. She escaped the brothel and became a street kid. She later became a slave in a mafia member’s home where she then escaped with the help of a friendly neighbor. She then hid in a convent which she escaped. Chapman finally found herself in another city with the daughter of the woman who rescued her from the mafia home. Her more friendly story starts there as she got a real name and learned how to be a little more human.  With that said, after watching interviews of Chapman and reading the book myself I find her story fascinating and I honestly believe it. The attention to detail and her unique memories garner a ring of truth.
