About this deal
Full Book Name: Rotting in the Bangkok Hilton: The Gruesome True Story of a Man Who Survived Thailand’s Deadliest Prisons for the most part, i enjoyed the book.. i liked the way the author writes.. the way the words flow together in a colourful narrative.. the stories of others, is an interesting way to write.. who are we if not impacted by our experiences, the people we share space with are bound to become part of our journey, our thoughts, our observations.. i mean also, if you are in prison for years, your experiences are limited to that space.. Rotting in the Bangkok Hilton: The Gruesome True Story of a Man Who Survived Thailand's Deadliest Prisons
This wasn’t really a narrative style story and once it was implied that it started as short snippets for a paper it made more sense why it was set out this way. Would listen to it again as it was really interesting and a completely different world than I’ve seen
The stories in it are truly remarkable. So disgusting and revolting there are sometimes hard to believe. it is without a doubt an eye-opening account of what actually goes on there, and an incredibly absorbing read. --Seattle Post-Intelligencer
The authors have created a sort of anti-Book of Virtues in this encyclopedic compendium of the ways and means of power. A superb rendition on the horrors of imprisonment that should be read by everyone. Bravo Mr. Hoy, what a gift for the reader. --Jimmy Santiago Baca, winner of the International Prize and author of A Place to StandThis is an interesting book. I enjoyed it. The author had a tough time in the Bangkok Hilton and the storys made me feel ill. Tale's like the ones in the book have been played out in movies and in audio before, but nothing like you will hear. Sentenced to life in prison, Hoy does his best to accept the fate he’s been given. While attempting to "adjust" to this third-world hellhole, he contracts tuberculosis and nearly loses his life.
It is narrated very well by a non annoying American reader who brings to life the daily hell of the prison the story is set in. ROTTING IN THE BANGKOK HILTON THE GRUESOME TRUE STORY OF A MAN WHO SURVIVED THAILAND'S DEADLIEST PRISONS If the authors are serious, this is a silly, distasteful book. If they are not, it’s a brilliant satire.The author's youthfulness helps to assure the inevitable comparison with the Anne Frank diary although over and above the sphere of suffering shared, and in this case extended to the death march itself, there is no spiritual or emotional legacy here to offset any reader reluctance.
