HASH(0x9b6ff3c0) von 5 Sternen It was the best of times, it was the worst of times... 14. Mai 2014
Von Mark Coates - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The best book in the 'Time' trilogy. the worst 'time' of Attwood's rollercoaster life, no doubt. Yes, it's very different to the first two, but you can map Attwood's maturity as a writer across the three with Prison Time being the pinnacle. So far. This guy gets better and better.

There are some similarities between this and the other books: Attwood's extraordinary honesty, his outstanding descriptions of his own emotional turmoil and an excellent representation of the larger-than-life criminal characters he meets. However, be warned, there are some genuinely shocking, real-life stories here that curl the toes and curdle the blood, and they're different to those in Hard Time: namely, the sexual deviancy and hormone-induced blood-lust that runs through prisons the world over.

In 5 words (or so), it's: gritty, jaw-dropping, philosophical, darkly humorous and emotional.

Highly recommended, but not for the faint-hearted.

HASH(0x9b6ff7c8) von 5 Sternen When wolfish ambition goes wrong................. 13. Mai 2014
Von Ms. Nancy Buckland - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
If you have already been reading this trilogy, then you will know that this is going to be the toughest set of chapters. Shaun Attwood, who has chronicled his tale in his previous two books has by now covered his time as the small town boy from the North West of England, who goes on to be an ambitious stockbroker in the U.S. After the hedonism of his earlier lifestyle, Shaun has been on a path to living a life of high finance and then crime. This book deals with the time when you think there will be no end in sight: the author's incarceration in one of America's toughest jails. Shaun never veers from the deeply shocking truth, and whilst his time in prison comes after he has been involved in activities that are punishable by law, you can't help but wondering what you do, how you would feel, and how you would cope if you had to trade places. I was most shocked by the amount of people who lose their freedom through untreated mental illness - it is something again that Shaun deals with in this book, even if it is an unpalatable reality. Shaun is a hugely intelligent writer who sweeps you along with his story, and you never want him to give up. His rich observation of real life characters like T-Bone is heart wrenching at times, but you won't want to put this book down. You want to stay with Shaun and find out what happens, and if he finds light at the end of a very dark tunnel. The sign of a truly good book is that it makes you question yourself, your own life and your own character long after you have read the last page. It so easy to judge another person's life, but this book throws up so many questions and dilemmas. This is a truly remarkable third part to the trilogy, and a fitting end to what started off as a very personal prison diary, which shows the warmth of the author from start to finish.

HASH(0x9b6ff840) von 5 Sternen How to Turn Adversity into Creativity 13. Mai 2014
Von Clayton Littlewood - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
In the early 70s I read Papillon, a memoir about life in a penal colony. It was harrowing, brutal, and gripping. Shaun's trilogy, Hard Time, Party Time and now Prison Time, is in the same mould. Each book had me biting my lip, squirming in my seat, willing him to survive. Thank God he did, because he has gone on to do something that few people can do. He has turned adversity into something creative.

In this latest book he describes his life in a dangerous American prison, populated by characters that fiction would be hard to match. But what shines through is Shaun's will to survive and improve his life. It's an achievement that just shows, the hard knocks in life can, if you overcome them, reap amazing rewards. And the reward we have here is the discovery of a writer of great talent.

HASH(0x9b6ffbd0) von 5 Sternen My 2014 Favorite 13. Dezember 2014
Von Playinem - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Shaun Attwood has become a masterful storyteller and Prison Time is in my opinion his best work yet. In Prison Time, Mr. Attwood will not only transport his readers into the depths of the Arizona Department of Corrections, he also takes them into his own heart, mind and soul as he struggles not only to survive the experience of being a "fresh fish" on the yard but also, to forge a path toward his own redemption. Readers will be with Shaun as he battles to salvage, renew and strengthen relationships with family, friends and lovers even as he must develop new friendships that will prove crucial to his survival and success within prison. The reader is right there with Shaun during his challenges and difficulties adjusting to prison culture and life. With him as he develops methods, strategies and techniques to not only survive but thrive in the harsh prison environment.

Too many Americans share Shaun Attwood's experience because of our country's socioeconomic commitment to increase and maintain the largest per capita prison population in the developed world but, it took a Brit (albeit a supremely gifted and talented one) to write the seminal American prison/redemption story. One of the reasons I can recommend this book so highly is because it will appeal to and be appreciated by an almost universal range of readership from my 93 year old grandmother to convicts and inmates currently locked down in federal, state or county correctional facilities. I read 82 books in 2014 (to date), Prison Time is my favorite.

HASH(0x9b6ffd08) von 5 Sternen A Prison Classic 21. September 2015
Von Tristan Hinderliter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I got turned onto this book by watching an episode of National Geographic’s “Locked Up Abroad” titled “Raving Arizona.” Through reenactments and interviews with the protagonist, the show details Shaun Attwood’s experience as a British expat living in Phoenix who gets arrested for dealing Ecstasy and sentenced to 9.5 years in prison. Shaun – an intellectual, mild-mannered Brit of medium build – is thrown in with murderers, torturers and rapists, and he ultimately spends more than six years incarcerated in Arizona.

The TV episode was so good that afterward I googled Shaun Attwood to learn more about his story and found that after his release from prison and deportation to England in 2007, he published three books about his experience: “Party Time” (2013), “Hard Time” (2014) and “Prison Time” (2014).
It turns out that Attwood is a really engaging writer, and I was very impressed with “Prison Time.” It has some fantastic prison horror stories, but at the same time Attwood has an eye for finding humanity in the unlikeliest of places – including the plight of transsexuals in prison, a kind-hearted mafia hit man, and a huge black inmate whose raison d’etre is to prevent weaker prisoners from being raped.

From the opening scene where Shaun’s drug-crazed cellmate threatens to smash his brains in with a padlock in a sock, the book sucks the reader right in. What happens next is even more disturbing, when on his way to the shower he is accosted by a sexual predator. Attwood writes:

“The pen clinks against grid-metal and tumbles to the day room as I’m pulled into a cell reeking of backside sweat and masturbation, a cheese-tinted funk.

‘I’m Booga. Let’s f***’ says a squat man in urine-stained boxers, with ‘WHITE TRASH’ tattooed on his torso beneath a mobile home, and an arm sleeved with the Virgin Mary.

Shocked, I brace to flee or fight to preserve my anal virginity. I can’t believe my eyes when he drops his boxers and waggles his penis.”

Later, in one of the most powerful anecdotes of the book, Attwood recounts a training seminar on Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention that the inmates must sit through. Guards urge the prisoners to report sexual assault, unaware or uncaring that “snitching,” as it’s known in prison, would be a death sentence for anyone who reported it. What follows is gallows humor of the darkest kind.

Shaun Attwood is a gifted storyteller, and his story is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit. The book is truly eye-opening, yet not sensationalized. I highly recommend it.
