by Gerry ConlonWhile (obviously) told from Conlon's perspective, the story focuses largely on his successful relationships with friends and family - both in and out of the English prison system. These personal connections support that Conlon, while not a heroic character, is at least an honest one. His story of endurance through political, religious, and legal torture is impressive, and he fairly describes the respective hostile environment(s) of each setting. The book falls through, however, in its affinity for spoilers within short chapters; the concise 'thesis' of a section might be stated in the opening paragraphs, or the chapter title itself might give it away. (This is especially disheartening to one already familiar with the 1993 Daniel Day-Lewis movie.) Still, this story of an innocent man's luck and misfortune contains many surprises.
