Normecupola di vetro sempre illuminata In uesto inferno Ray Klein è riuscito asopravvivere mantenendosi fedele a un solo motto Non sono cazzi tuoi Ma ilgiorno in cui ottiene la libertà vigilata Green River esplode.

Green River Rising

In una rivoltad'inimmaginabile ferocia una guerra tribale che mette l'intero carcere nellemani dei detenuti Ray deve scegliere tenersi la libertà e abbandonarel'unica persona che ama o rischiare tutto e combattere. If all you were to do was to skim read it might be easy to see why it is that those who criticize this extraordinary novel for being clich d for portraying the inmates as brutal brutalized racist sexist homophobic for demeaning whites and for ennobling blacks Hispanics Latinos etc do so However a closer reading would find that this was far from the truth I suspect those making the criticism haven t been within a hundred miles of the kind of institution upon which the Green River State Penitentiary is based This reviewer hasn t either but if those depicted in any US prison documentary that I have ever seen are half way near being true portrayals then this book certainly has the ring of truth It s even been criticized for having a female character who likes sport imagine thatThere are no criticisms levelled at this book that could not also be levelled at movies such as Shawshank Brubaker Cool Hand Luke American History X Felon etc and it is from such as these that the vast majority of readers will have taken their mental images of high security prisons in the US It is not a documentary it is fiction and should be taken at face value and in purely fictional terms that value is extremely highThe book is vividly plotted the prose style mesmerizing and the characters three dimensional but it is definitely not for the faint hearted being as it is punctured periodically by unsavoury and brutal depictions of the bestiality inherent in human beings endeavouring to survive in the most nightmarishly vicious of environments this is truly Darwinism in actionIf you re looking for brilliantly realized drama of epic proportions that will keep you reading long into the night you need look no further

characters Green River Rising

In un angolo del Texas sorge il penitenziario di Green River carcere dimassima sicurezza sinistro deposito di un'umanità reietta 2800 detenutid'ogni razza concentrati in un labirinto di granito e acciaio sotto un'e. I love love love Tim Willocks I ve read The Religion at least 5 times and finally have gotten my hands on another one of his books and I m not disappointed It is a 180 from The Religion but that s okay Same argument as The Historian and The Swan Thieves Two different books by the same author Good deal It s said this is the best prison story ever and I tend to agree Mr Willocks a psychiatrist by day is nothing if not intense No holds barred and nothing is ever held back He is into realism depicting human nature at it s worst as well at it s best and all points in between The lines are drawn and the bad are very bad and sometimes they get worse Ahhh but sometimes the monsters are not who they seem to be The heart can be as vast and open as the sky even while being denied that sky I highly recommend this book if this type of book appeals to you Tim Willocks is one hellava writer

    As this novel opens Green River State Penitentiary is a pot of hatred and violence about to boil over It’s run by a megalomaniacal unstable warden and packed with four cell blocks of angry men waiting for their chance to lash out in short not a place anyone in their right mind would want to be Unfortunately our hero Ray Klein is
