Kurzbeschreibung

27. Februar 2014

Prison Time, the sequel to Hard Time, is the story of Shaun Attwood's journey through the Arizona Department of Corrections and his deportation to England.

Sentenced to nine years in Arizona's state prison for distributing Ecstasy, 'English Shaun' Attwood finds himself living among gang members, sexual predators and drug-crazed psychopaths. After being attacked by a 20-stone California biker in for stabbing a girlfriend, Shaun writes about the prisoners who befriend, protect and inspire him. They include T-Bone, a massive African American ex-Marine who risks his life saving vulnerable inmates from rape, and Two Tonys, an old-school Mafia murderer who left the corpses of his rivals from Tucson to Alaska. They teach Shaun how to turn incarceration to his advantage, and to learn from his mistakes.

Resigned to living alongside violent, mentally-ill, and drug-addicted inmates, Shaun immerses himself in psychology and philosophy to try to make sense of his past behaviour, and begins applying what he learns as he adapts to prison life. Encouraged by Two Tonys to explore fiction as well, Shaun reads over a thousand books which, with support from brilliant psychotherapist Dr. O, speed along his personal development. As his ability to deflect daily threats improves, Shaun begins to look forward to his release with optimism and a new love waiting for him. Yet the words of Aristotle from one of Shaun's books will prove prophetic: 'We cannot learn without pain'.

5.0 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.

5.0 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.

5.0 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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen English Shaun's evolution: zen-prisoner to master memoirist 8. März 2014
Von S. Mclaughlin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Prison Time spills with raw emotion and righteous rage at a corrupt justice system so riddled with absurdities it resembles a Kafkaesque nightmare. What stings most aren’t the big injustices but the little ones; small acts of random cruelty that are dished out with ice-eyed glee by stony- faced officialdom, disguised as benign ‘rules & regulations’. ‘English Shaun’ takes us into the euphemistically named Arizona Department of Corrections, where corrective officials can be every bit as dangerous as the inmates, in their cold and clever way.

Prisoners are plunged into a dystopian world where in order to survive short sentences for minor crimes they are either forced to kill – and thereby become accidental ‘lifers’ – or to evolve into hyper skilled diplomats with crisis negotiation abilities that would put a UN peace envoy to shame. It is a shark-pool world where how well you survive is dependent on how well you can kill, talk and fight. And the shocking shame of it all is it’s a deliberate design choice by the powers that be who run the show behind the scenes. The corrupt politicians who take kickbacks and donations from privatisation contractors; the penny pinching governors who place vulnerable inmates in shared cells with crazed killers then feign surprise when a dogfight erupts; the sociopathic ‘care workers’ who routinely deny medical treatment to the sick and troubled.

Attwood isn’t suggesting that prison should be a holiday camp or that inmates be given a free pass for serious crimes. Rather he points out that prisons can still be tough places of work and discipline, but at the same time underpinned by values of rehabilitation and rebirth for those who want it. Many hardcases will reject this offer but that’s their choice and they must live with the consequences without complaint. But for those that sincerely desire another chance, well they must be given every opportunity, and the travesty of injustice and inhumanity that Attwood lays bare cannot be allowed to stand.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Mafia men and transexuals and murderers, OH MY! 4. August 2014
Von SMS667 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Having read the previous two books in the English Shaun Trilogy, I must say Prison Time is my favorite of all three. Very intriguing to see Shaun navigate relationships with the various colorful characters he was imprisoned with, while also really getting to know himself for the very first time. So many ups and downs, it took my brain on an emotional roller coaster. I highly recommend for anyone that's a fan of his previous work. For those of you who haven't read Shaun's work yet, start from the beginning. You won't be disappointed.
