Product Description

Product Description

Robert Towery was executed by the State of Arizona on March 8, 2012.
For the last 35 days of his life, Robert was placed on “Death Watch” where
his every move was recorded and chronicled by prison officials.
Robert also kept a diary which he gave or mailed to his attorneys as installments.
He detailed the ironies and absurdities of life in prison. He
reveled in simple pleasures, such as a good meal or a sports event on
television. He longed for human contact from his last visitors,
and he touchingly tried to comfort his pod-mate, who doesn’t really
understand that he was going to his death.

Definitely an interesting insight into what it is like to be on death watch. It's pretty simple reading and not very long. It can be a bit repetatrepetitive but then again you can't expect too much as the guy is living on a cell with nothing much to do. It's definitely a biased view on thing's that go on there. Overall I enjoyed it and it was a cheap deal so even better.

Whilst prison has to ha a routine and structure weighing someone for 35 days everyday seems a waste of resources to me.I don't believe a True feeling insight of the inmate is given short to read not too Impressed
