David McMillan (Escape, P. 5). A brilliant book about the escapades of David McMillan. Legs were the things that the prisoners had escaped upon so legs were what the prison guards took from Agarn and Benny when they were brought back to the jail. They were chained to a wall in a small cell and worked ove I could not stand the writing style, and all the jumping around. The book only gets good in the end when he actually escapes prison. It's like the alpha monkeys say, "Come, climb up our tree, you're welcome.

This book was a really good read and I was really enjoying it. But as I got deeper and deeper into the book I was starting to wonder when the actual escape attempt was going to take place.

It seems like this book is more of a book on life in the prison rather then the actual escape attempt itself. As that is only a very minor part of the book.

The book is still a good read but I was just hoping for a little bit more out of the actual escape itself - maybe the author could have spent a few more pages on the main point of the book?

I did not find this a pleasant read. Every paragraph seems to start a new topic and with a huge cast of characters it's easy to forget where this is going. I suppose if you were one to read a book in a few days, it would move quicker, but I tend to read 20-40 pages a night before sleep. I just found it scattered in it's writing and that leads to a frustrating read. I found that I was asking "who is this character now? Have we met him before? What do we know about him?" and coming up blank. There is no doubt an interesting story to be told and judging from the other reviews here, others did not find the same issues.

The book was very interesting at first and at the end but the in-between was boring. A lot of looking back in the past. It seemed to me it was just to fill up space.

I found this book quite difficult to read. Alot of the story and situations were disjointed and hard to understand. I never got a sense of perspective and there were way too many names introduced all the time. The writer would have done better to write in a more focused and simpler prose. The book was a bit allover the place.

Great book.

It's a shame this was so poorly written. All the grammatical sins (run-on sentences, sentence fragments and even changing tenses within one paragraph) make the story confusing and hard to follow. Several areas of too much detail test your patience to the point of boring you senseless. It's especially difficult for an american to read when you're unfamiliar with austrailian (and british?) slang and expressions.

About half way through, I skimmed and skipped to get to the actual escape, which was so tedious I skimmed through that until he was actually out of the prison near the end of the book.

I was hoping for a page turner a la Midnight Express. If you're looking for that, you'll be disappointed.

I imagine if you have familiarity with this Bankok prison you might be better entertained.
This was a captivating true crime thriller--an autobiographical account of a true escape from a notorious Thailand prison in the late 1990's. While full of suspense and hard to put down, there were some aspects lacking. The author, David McMillan, mostly Australian, used a lot of prison or Thai jargon which sometimes was hard to follow. A glossary would have helped. As a smuggler the author appears to justify his life of crime or at least shows little remorse and as such the book is fairly amoral. The grammar needs to be better edited and it could have been crafted better as there are numerous characters as in a War and Peace novel and the setting is constantly shifting. The worst part was at the end after the author's successful escape. Other than a few letters from friends with some clues as to possibly where he went and what he did next, the author certainly leaves the reader dangling in limbo. But in total it was a very interesting read.
