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!!

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

Interesting trilogy ends on poor narration

Shaun Attwood's story is definately an interesting one, and i highly recommend to give all three a listen. However, this final installment is let down by the author himself sadly, Shaun's voice sounds a bit like he is punch drunk or just smoked a massive joint.

If you can get past that, then you are in for a enjoyable telling of American prison life.

Not worth the hype

First two books were good - couldn’t understand how an American voice over actor was reading in Scouse lingo. Very odd. This third book was shite. Monotone reading by Shaun Attwood. I used this to fall asleep to

Interesting

Shaun was a bit monotone compared to the other two books but still enjoyable time

I could listen to Shaun's stories all day.

The best audio book I've listened to yet.
I love listening to Shaun telling his stories. He truly is a world class speaker. This man is an inspiration to me and will be to many others. I can't recommend this book enough. Thank you Shaun for reading your book.

Brilliant and inspirational. Terribly narrated!

I love this guy and his amazing story. Full of philosophical insight, erudite advice and plain speaking, he weaves a narrative so twisted and bizarre, you struggle to take in its harsh, dark soul.
Read this trilogy and you will come out a different, better person. Few books change your life, along with One Day in The Life of Ivan Denosovich..this one has.
One caveat though Shaun, you can’t read for toffee. Why’d you do that?! Made it a tough listen. I ended up buying the books and reading myself; much better.

Prison Time

Prison Time gives an in-depth view of prison life in the USA. The scary thing is, it all actually happened and the characters are real people who have fell foul of the judicial system and ended up in a sometimes barbaric system. I have always been of the opinion ‘you do the crime prepared to do the time’ but with that comes the human side. The prisoners are people and have a real story to tell. Shaun Attwood brings this harrowing account of his time in prison in the USA to life and what a life it is .... highly recommend

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.

Loved it

I really enjoyed Shauns Narration on this, he did great in my opinion! It was an animated and emotive reading of his story and great to hear in his voice. Look forward to buying more of Shauns books

A fascinating insight

Shaun's account of his time in prison is a fascinating insight into a world that most of us will never experience, but one that is potentially one silly mistake away! More than an entertaining "can't put it down" read, but a learning experience as you grow with Shaun on his journey of Self-Discovery, Fitness (Iron Man is a beast), and Yoga to spotlight a few but not to spoil your enjoyment of this scintillating book.

And, finally, let's get T-bone free and take care of his future!

Right, I'm motivated to get some burpees done.

Namaste

The Wolves are calling you to read this!

A must read! #3 in Shaun Attwood Trilogy. Shaun describes his experiences so vividly that you feel you are right there with him. Originally I was only planning on reading Party Time but I have not been able to stop listening since I first started Party Time a week ago! Prison Time will keep you hanging on every word!

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
