3.0 out of 5 stars Poor Poor Warren! Nov. 10 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I thought Warren Fellow's trip through the Bangkok prison system sounded horrific and awful. He really had to struggle to survive and the book was well written for a quick read.
My one complaint was how Warren seemed to feel sorry for himself. He mentioned a few times at the beggining of the book how he was aware of the crimes that he was commiting (many of which he didn't get caught or do time for) and was also aware of the horrors of the Thai prison system. Yet, he continued to traffic heroin to Australia from Bangkok and India, and finally and eventually got caught and had to do time. I felt sympathy for what he went through, but in no way felt compassion for the horrible crime he commited, knowing the way a drug like heroin affects people.
Towards the end of the book, Warren is bitter about all the years that he lost of his life while in prison. Intstead of being thankful for surviving, and thankful that now he has some time out in the real world, he just complains. This book is a good read, but please don't let this criminal suck you into his pity party!

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick Read of Unsurvivable conditions Feb. 3 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book starts out with the basics of his life and how the author got in the drug trade. It does not go into details of the money he made or how many deals he made to get there.
The book is a very quick and captivating read. It is more of memorable snapshots and stories taken through his time in inhumane conditions. The writing is fairly frank but provides you with enough information to completely understand where he was with some imagination which you really don't wan't to use. I don't think I would have made it through his time and definitely don't want to put myself in a situation where it would be a possibility.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a story June 18 2003
Format:Paperback
What a coincidence. I was in Bangkok airport doing a little smuggling myself through Sydney. I bought this book for my 8 and a half hour flight to SYD. The book was 870 baht at the DFS which is quite expensive and I have not read for ages. I could not sleep I read the entire book, what a story. This has really made me rethink what I do to make a buck here and there. I plan to visit a prison when I am back in BKK soon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Condition - good delivery time Jan. 31 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The only reason I gave this a 4 was because there was a little residue on the cover that I had to use rubbing alcohol to remove. It reminded me of paint splatter. But other than that, the book looked like it had never been read.
Very happy about the purchase.
Thank you very much
