A first hand account of a day in the life of Bobby Sands while he was taking part in the blanket protest against the removal of prisoners' political status by the British Government. A story of injustice and incredible hardship, this is a must read for people with an interest in Irish politics. Of particular interest to younger readers who did not live through this dreadful period in Irish history.

This is an amazing book. It is difficult to read about how a human being can be put through such suffering at the hands of other so called human beings. This reminds me of books I have read about nazi concentration camps and Japanese prisons in the Second World War. This is an account of just one day in the life of a man who was prepared to suffer and ultimately die for his beliefs. Whatever political persuasions one may have its hard not to respect what Bobby Sands was willing to endure for what he thought was right.
Well worth a read.

Bobby Sands will forever remain an icon of human resistance and an inspirational figure of the power of self-belief.

'One Day in my Life' is an insightful account of suffering and determination. Its brutally frank, yet elegantly poignant, depiction of the horror Sands and his fellow freedom fighters endured for their cause is infinitely haunting ... but also incredibly uplifting.

And against all odds, the fact this book even exists at all is nothing short of a miracle.

An amazing read.

Nothing tells the story more accurately or deplorably of the abuse suffered by Irish Republicans like their own martyr's personal diary, letters, and poetry. While I was horrified by the conditions under which Bobby Sands labored, I was impressed by the integrity of his character and the inspiration it provided for so many others in similar situations. Although his poetry is not particularly noteworthy for its literary contribution, it is memorable for its content and the effort made by its poet to speak the wrongs he and his comrades endured at the hands of the "most civilized people on earth." It is indeed time for everyone to hear these words of anguish and hope.

I was very young when Bobby Sands went on hunger strike and subsequently died because of it. I remember hearing the news reports here in the United States as they talked about how Sands and the other strikers were petitioning to be treated as POWs because of the illegal occupation of Northern Ireland by the British government. There were many who viewed Sands as a hero and a martyr because of the ultimate sacrifice he made to a cause he believed in. Others view him as a terrorist who did not deserve the attention he received. I was 11 years old when Sands died, however I always found his story interesting. I thought the book was very well done and gave the reader a picture of what life was like for Sands inside the prison where he would ultimately live in infamy in. I did not look at Sands as a hero or a terrorist. I viewed him as someone who was very intelligent, someone who stood up for his beliefs. I would definitely recommend this book who wants to know more about Sands the man.

'One Day in My Life' may as well have been penned in the blood of Bobby Sands, as he describes the endeavor to persevere and survive abuse and torture at the hands of his jailers.
In less than one hundred pages, that was first penned on toilet paper and hidden inside the authors body, he documents the events of one day describing how he and his fellow comrades in the infamous H-Blocks of Long Kesh Prison faced and resisted the state sponsored brutality with bravery, resolve and encouragement. Allowing themselves to exist in conditions of filth, cold and near starvation to protest their given status as common criminals rather than one of political prisoners which they were.
This book is an account of true believers who surrendered their bodies, but never their minds or their espirit de corps. To understand their determination is to understand that they were willing to accept a slow, agonizing death rather than imperialistic tyranny.
Foot note: Bobby Sands never left prison alive. A little while beyond the time that he wrote the original manuscript he was elected MP of Fermanagah and South Tyrone in April 1981. He died at the age of 27 on the sixty-sixth day of a hunger strike on 5 May 1981. Nine of his comrades, also, died on their hunger strikes around the same time. The death of Bobby Sands and the others did more to further the Cause than any number of bombings that occurred during the Troubles.

After reading this book I would like to know why these guards and the entire British judicial system weren't
held accountable for the terror they inflicted on these prisoners of war.
The story is an all engrossing example of human bravery. It seems nearly unfathomable that human beings are capable of such horrible torture....... but, in the end, it is a true story of heroism. Proof that men are made in the image of God, and that some fall far from that image. Bobby Sands was a revolutionary, paving the way for the freedom of his Countrymen with not only his life, but also sacrificing even his humanity while somehow holding his dignity .
