Needless to say, this book is explicit, angry, and takes all prisoners. You can't escape the cruelty of Rubin's life, witnessing the reality, and how he was caught in the center of Hell...and the haunting fact was that it was the truth. The pain he had to go through is, to me, inconceivable.
Rubin Carter has written a terrific book, more than what he wanted it to be...a timeless testament about America, justice, prison, and fate...He may not be the best boxer, but he is one of the best fighters...fighting the dehumanization of his life weaving through prison and out, and fighting the cruelty of "Madame One-Eyed Justice" and "Fate."
This book will not come off of your brain...it is a very honest, angry, stirringly emotional, thriller of a book. I recommend it to the people who saw the movie, and someone who wants a direct and eye-opening portal into the mind of a black man living through the Civil Rights Movement.
reading his own words convey the powerful emotions one can only begin to imagine when your world is shattered by life imprisonment for a crime you did not commit.
mr. carter's writings of his childhood up to his wrongful imprisonment paint a graphic picture of the forces that mold us, he was by no means a model citizen, but then, who of us are.
i found the spirit of this man extraordinary,i hope that the visibility his life story has received of late, will in some way compensate him. but for the many years stolen, there is no repayment.
i found both "the 16th round" and "the hurricane" great reading, for they fill in the gaps for each other. fyi: "the 16th round" can be had from penguin books out of canada.
