A great read and one of the better prison stories from the Asia region. It gets a little hard to follow towards the third quarter of the book as he explains the interactions between a list of names that were not in the start of the tale but gets back on track nearer the end. An amazing escape which was successful through shear determination of the human free spirit (some great trusting friends and a bucketload of adrenaline!!!) that saw him on to a better life somewhere in the world. I'm curious as to what would happen to him now if he were to hand himself in but I'm sure I'll never find out. It would make for a great movie but as most screen writers do they would probably stray too far from the truth. Hmmm, what to read now?
A great story which shows you the difference a life inside the famous Bangkok Prison system is like when you have money. Although still no comfort like home, David pays to have a lot better experience than those who cannot afford it. Bribery, survival and escapes, my kind of book! Although I haven't read his second book, I do plan on doing so.
Good read, the authors sense of humour shines through although sometime left me in the dark, as though missing an inside joke, it seems as though that was his intention so only added to the story. A fascinating story, He is unapologetic For his crimes and seems to view the punishments as merely a chapter in The story rather than the end, this perhaps drove him to escape rather than accept his fate.
McMillan gives a great recount of life behind bars in Bangkok and the lengths he went to in preparation and execution of his escape. I was kept forever wondering what was going to happen next. Well worth reading.
