5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you Glenn! May 2 2012
By Beeper - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thank the author for writing and getting the word out about crimes in prison! This needs to be told and exposed! Sometimes the men who commit the crime become the victims of those who tend to feel like they are above the law! I know because I have witnessed it first hand for myself in a womens facility! Then you Glenn for getting your story and the truth out for others to hear! This extra non-sence in prisons needs to come to a halt!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Detailed Memoir on a persons way of life Jan. 26 2013
By Chad Pulido - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is great for those who can relate to that lifestyle and see the similarities of their own. For those who cant relate to the lifestyle id recommend it to even more because those who are unaware of the way other people live will be amazed and in suspense of the way Author Glenn Langohr goes into depth in this memoir. Not only is the story great but Glenn's technique is great and very inspirational for those wanting to write a memoir or life story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Roll Call Jan. 24 2013
By Seth Ferranti- Gorilla Convict Publications - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Roll Call is an intense look into the criminal underworld and prison by a man who has really done time due to his convictions in California's criminal justice machinery. This fictional tale is taken from the author's real life story. He incorporates real life events and a look into modern day times into this account to give readers a mesmerizing story of what it's really like in the drug world. From Mexican drug cartels to street gangs to prison gangs it's all here in Roll Call. Read with the insight of a person who lived the life he is talking about. This is not a Hollywood glamorization or a rap video this is authentic drama with real life anecdotes and feelings from a person who experienced what he is writing about. It is his cross to bear and he shares his story with readers so that they can decide the issues of right and wrong and morality that goes along with all the facets of life. A tale set in Southern California it touches on every aspect of the drug world hierarchy. The book reads like a movie but doesn't romanticize the drug trade like so many blockbusters do, it humanizes it and the author does a good job of showing the reality of it all. Big kudos to Glenn for writing such an amazing book.

5.0 out of 5 stars AuthorsDen Review Dec 5 2012
By AuthorsDen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I just finished an intriguing read of a book called Roll Call by author Glenn Langohr. Now when I say intriguing, I need to be careful here because the book was also emotionally challenging as well...the type of challenge that we readers get when we can actually feel the lifestyle mistakes and coming disasters that experience and value based learning teach many of us to avoid, but make for a read that keeps us coming back for the "what's next"
Langohr's novel reads autobiographically and delves into the southern California drug culture (mostly marijuana initially, then of course the graduation to meth) and the uncomfortable nervousness that evolves when the movement of large quantities of dope and shady characters intermingle. Throw in the addictive capacity of methamphetamine and you have a true recipe for personal and professional disaster. You can feel the coming crash of an imperfect system of distribution, lying cops and less than honest friends. As a result ...prison culture.
Prison culture is a pretty broad term, but what the reader learns from this book is the intricacies of that system. The hierarchy and para- military rank structure that issues orders, directs exercise, survival skills, punishment, coordinated attacks and ultimately...death orders or in the case of rapists and child sex offenders, capital punishment...prison style!
The ride of the novel continues and takes us through the convoluted legal system and the players that are involved. It was fascinating and frustrating at the same time. I can actually say that I have a better grasp of how the system works, or in many if not most cases doesn't work. Truly an interesting read that grinds on the characters and reader alike.

4.0 out of 5 stars I HAD to know what happened next! Aug. 15 2012
By Wendy L. Hines - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Roll Call is a compelling and page-turning read. Told from the perspective of his own time in prison, tossed with a few bits here and there of fiction. The reader gets an upclose glimpse of what it's really like behind bars and what can happen with those close to you.

It's a long read, well over seven hundred pages, and at times, it gets a bit dry. But as the character's backgrounds emerge, the present begins to make sense and I found myself hoping that BJ would turn his life around. If you put your mind to it, you can do anything. Life is all about choices and Roll Call has good choices and bad, depicting consequences of both. It took me awhile, but I eventually got to the point I couldn't put this book down - I HAD to know what happened next. I was definitely not disappointed and glad that I stuck with it.
