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!
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.
Its incredable what the human mind and body can endure.

Book looked brand new. My favorite book of all time. Happy to have been able to get it for so cheap, and so quickly to read again!Published 4 months ago by Vanessa
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. Read morePublished on Jan. 31 2013 by Jennifer Widdifield
