    Out of Thin Air PDF/EPUB ß Out of Epub / thin kindle, Out of book, Out of Thin Air PDFIn 1974 two men in Iceland ten months apart seemingly vanished While the two men lived miles apart were nearly 20 years apart in age and had different professions Iceland had never experienced anything like it This is the story of “Out of Thin Air” where the author Anthony Adeane seeks to reconstruct what happened to these men the people eventually charged for it and Iceland as a country It is also the story of the limits of human memory and how susceptible it is to coercion and suggestion When the police eventually settled on a group of suspects in their early 20’s they all were adamant that they had nothing to do with the crime As time passed and they spent increasing long hours in isolation one suspect spent well over 600 days in isolation before finally “confessing” and under duress from constant interrogation the suspects began to believe they were in fact guilty each one construct a different story of their involvement until the police coalesced them into one narr

    Out of Thin Air PDF/EPUB ß Out of Epub / thin kindle, Out of book, Out of Thin Air PDFThis should have been two different books one on economic history of Iceland the other on the mystery of a missing person Both combined it is an incoherent messFrankly the material on the main theme mystery and wrongful convictions itself is thin and not extraordinary The wikipedia article on the trials is a much better read since it is succinct The book rambles on and on about how Iceland evolved economically before the murder how it was evolving during the trial and how it evolved later and frankly it is all unnecessary and unrelated I found myself skipping the pages

    Out of Thin Air PDF/EPUB ß Out of Epub / thin kindle, Out of book, Out of Thin Air PDFVery interesting non fiction book about a famous case in Iceland where a group of people wrongly accused of two crimes confessed to them and spent many years in jail only tk be cleared decades later It is well written and besides the case itself it also provides a vivid and insightful account of Icelandic society and how it changed in the last few decades The phenomenon of memory distrust syndrome is fascinating and uite scary and this book provides some insight into how it can occur A good read not only for true crime fans but also for people interested in human psychology or in Iceland
