Summary

After Shaun Attwood arrived in the Arizona Department of Corrections, his challenges multiplied. His cellmate threatened to cave in Shaun’s skull with a padlock in a sock. A naked neighbour dragged him into a cell for sex. Before a visit with his parents, he was attacked by a drug-crazed biker.

Forced to adapt or perish, Shaun made alliances with powerful prisoners, including T-Bone a massive ex-Marine who risked his life saving inmates from rape, and Two Tonys, an old-school Mafia murderer who left the corpses of his rivals from Tucson to Alaska. They showed Shaun how to transcend incarceration and to learn from his mistakes.

A great end to the trilogy

this is the first of the tree I've listened to that is narrated by Shaun himself and it definitely adds a new dimension to the story. the one thing that took me out of the immersion of the story in the previous two was having an American man narrate a story told by and Englishman, with the sentence structures, slang and dialect kept in place, made for some clunky moments, but having Shaun tell it absolutely ideal, hearing emotion change in the read means something, these moments happened to the person speaking. buy this book, listen to them all!!

Gutted

I have enjoyed the other books in this series but the author should have left the narration to Randal.

I live not too far away from where the author was raised so I’m used to the accent, just can’t listen to his voice. Sorry Shaun. I am gutted because after investing in the series so far I am now left unable to complete the journey.

Wow!

There’s moments I felt I almost lived this. A fantastic finish to the other two parts of this. For me this was the best book, if you just found this one I highly recommend you listen to the first two to get the full picture. I totally stumbled on these books and Shaun but throughly enjoyed them.
One last thing I saw a comment about the narration being slow, it is a little slow but don’t let that put you off, just put it on 2x and it sounds great! Kudos to Shaun for stepping up and reading his own book, such an incredible story.

Excellent

Sad, funny, frightening and inspirational. Induced an empathy in me that I didn't think was possible

Super interesting and well performed.

Well worth the wait. I'm glad Shaun decided to narrate it himself too. Incredibly interesting stories packed full of important insight too.

narrator's voice irritating

I read the first 2 books , when listening on audible I prefer the actual writer to narrate as it gives it more authenticity but to be honest his accent got annoying after a while , he reads ultra slow in parts , I actually checked the speed cause I though I must of accidentally slowed it down a touch but no, he really is talking that slow , I know a lot of his prison mates loved his accent , I get the impression he loves the sound of his own voice literally. . when he's doing American accents it's even more annoying and when he does those whispery recounts it's out and out weird... classic narcissist In my opinion loves talking about himself. .the next book should be about wild man, a genuine character

Please Mr Atwood

Great story Ty

You narration is bloody awful.

I could go on and on. But in short bring back Randal Schaffer used in the other 2.

He gets your humor and plight. He conveys it perfectly. Sorry mate you don't.

incredible story terrible narration

Please go back to the narrator in "Hard Time" Authors should never narrate their own books, if the story was not so good i would have stopped listening, almost unbearable.

Great narrative of prison life

Unlike some other reviews I did not find the narrator- the author himself - very bad at all. Good story and overall very much liked the book
