One of the best books I've read in a while! There's always something happening in the book which keeps it entertaining the reader. It's quite a brutal read as it is about a prison years ago and they weren't a place people would chose to end up in. The only bad point is that I wish the book was longer. I couldn't put it down!… Read Full Review

I was in the same prisons as Warren was and even slept right next to him for many years in same cell. He knows me well and he spread Hiv at the time he was in there by sharing his needles using heroin daily to relieve boredom. Warren was a nice guy and all but he never received any harsh treatment and I can say first hand he and I lived fairly well. He worked the system to his advantage and got things others could not get. Such as visits daily and food from outside and daily drug use. They… Read Full Review

Just finished reading this today. The book was refreshingly written in the fact that everything was straight to the point about what actually happened there. Lots of books in this vain tend towards long sections of feelings of self pity but Fellows was much more intent on letting readers know the injustice done there as a whole, not just to him. The idea that he himself felt deserving of sentencing of his crime, but this was just too much for any man, really rang true in the writing. I really… Read Full Review

I read this book in one afternoon, not being able to put it down! Human beings are so resilient, and I never fail to be amazed at what we can survive. I understand that drug trafficking is wrong in so many ways, but the inhumanity of the treatment dished out to inmates was in my opinion of far greater immorality than the original crime. This story blew me away, and I wish Warren Fellows all the luck and love in the world… Read Full Review

Everything was so different in the 1970's. Being from this era I recognise alot of the 'old school' ways while reading Warren's book. What a kick in the guts story and a story I found hard to stop reading. Brutal honest cruel but in my opinion Warren was subjected to 'overkill' in his sentencing and the Thai justice system is and was a bloody joke. Brilliant book. An In ya face read. Bless you dude you came home. All the best with everything. xoxoxox Ngaire Martin… Read Full Review

I too, could not put this book down. I usually take a week to read a book, and I don't even like reading. What he experienced was absolutely appalling and noone should have experienced it, even a drug traficker. Out of all the books I read, this is the one that had the most impact on me. So even after 10 years I still remember bits of the book that haunt me today. It made me very sad at the suffering of the inmates and the lack of human feelings in those who dished out this kind of… Read Full Review

from reading the first couple of pages i could not put this book down it was an amazing read although i don't agree with what warren fellows did but the conditions and the way he was treated was inhuman not a living soul should be treated the way he was .I think they should make a film about his experience or he should tell his story on the television programme banged up abroad .

WOW - when you first pick up the book you might think - he done the crime do the time - well he certainly did that - i dont feel pity - theres no need too - i feel proud of him - his inner strength and where ever he is today i hope he feels more free.

Look at this site to read the biography of Fellows ;
I read this book 8 months ago and I still cannot get over what Warren Fellows went through. I wonder how he is today.
Unlike some, I believe EVERYONE deserves forgiveness if they are truly repentant. He definitely paid more than the price for what he did - and I believe he is still paying for it today.

i realy felt for warren and his mate paul who sadly died from an overdose i, myseif was a heroin addict for 11 years so understand the need to escape if only for a short time , it seems to me that warren is now locked in his own prison in his mind which is so sadi red the book in a day once i started it i never put it down until i,d finshed it it just goes to show what life is REALY like in a thai prison ( unbearable ) i wish warren all the love and luck take care a brilliant read… Read Full Review

A read and thought provoking....
For the pain anguish and grief that these people cause by smuggling drugs in this world, what this man describes was too easy. Pity he wasn't hung like they do with them in Singapore. Send his body back in freight!… Read Full Review

I have been to Thailand 10 times in 12 years and have only ever found the Thai people friendly and kind. Why? Because I have never done anything illegal. I have just read the book THE DAMAGE DONE 12 YEARS IN A BANGKOK JAIL by Warren Fellows and why yes the conditions in Thailand jails in 1978 were horrific and disturbing I still find it difficult to feel that this man deserves the praise he is given by many. People have seemed to have over looked that he was guilty and knew the consequences of… Read Full Review

I read this book in about 17 hours - I normally take quite a while to read my books, maybe three weeks on average. Started this on Saturday morning and couldn't stop reading until Sunday evening.
The hairs on my arms stand up on end just thinkings about some of the things Warren went through.
Really well written too - the book just drags you in by your feet.
It's like the best movie you've ever seen that lasts for 17 hours!
Get this book, then buy a copy for your best… Read Full Review
