“Fascinating . . . The true subject of this unforgettable book is female bonding and the ties that even bars can’t unbind.”—People (four stars)
“I loved this book. It’s a story rich with humor, pathos, and redemption. What I did not expect from this memoir was the affection, compassion, and even reverence that Piper Kerman demonstrates for all the women she encountered while she was locked away in jail. I will never forget it.”—Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love
“This book is impossible to put down because [Kerman] could be you. Or your best friend. Or your daughter.”—Los Angeles Times
“Moving . . . transcends the memoir genre’s usual self-centeredness to explore how human beings can always surprise you.”—USA Today
“It’s a compelling awakening, and a harrowing one—both for the reader and for Kerman.”—Newsweek

I will still watch the next season of oitnb when it comes out as it is entertaining. That said, I am saddened that Netflix missed the opportunity to tell a real story, one that could have challenged stereotypes, inspired inquiry, and called for meaning.
It was a very good purchase,was delivered quickly and the book was in excellent condition.I will definitely check here first when looking to purchase another book.
