Things that I liked about this book: I liked that I really got a sense of the monotony and redundance of her experience. As well as her ability to to communicate the interpersonal relationships that formed in jail, the hierarchy. I liked the ease in which the story was told, it was an easy read and only took me three or four hours to finish. Things that were disappointing for me about this book: First, I was surprised there was no mention of what had happened to the author prior to this book. I realize there are two books preceding it but in order for me to truly understand I wanted to know why she went to jail and what her original sentence was etc. I must say there was suspense but unfortunately the suspense usually ended up nowhere. Many superfluous details where incorporated into the story which I found distracting. For example; what was the purpose of mentioning how unusual it was for a dealer to show up for the buy, as opposed to a middleman. Why was that unusual? I was anticipating a climactic moment. Maybe the author was set up by the strangers (suspense) or the dealer was really a narc and she was going to get busted again (suspense). But it turned out to be just an observation nothing more. I didn't like that I could not emotionally connect with the author. She wasn't forthcoming enough about her emotions for me to connect. If this had been a fictional story I really wouldn't care what happened to the main character. But, to know it really happened to somebody, I do care. As a sexual abuse and addiction survivalist, I know there is a black hole full Of emotion from these experiences. Maybe the author isn't even aware of them all.
I wish the author all the best in her healing, happiness and her life.
