Product Description

Review

"Fellows admits he was caught bang-to-rights, but even the most hardened criminal would appear an innocent inside the barbaric prison system he subsequently endures. The picture that builds is gross, a horrific contemporary version of A Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovitch . . . If you've ever had even as much of a spliff on a Ko Samui beach, you must read this book" (James Brown GQ)

"The author made the mistake of trying to traffic heroin through Thailand and wound up in prison for 12 years . . . a gruelling cautionary tale reminiscent of Midnight Express" (Tobias Jones Independent on Sunday)

This book is possibly one of the best books i've ever read. You can't put it down. The detail that Warren Fellows goes into is perfect and he manages to convey all angles of the prison and immigration services in Thailand without the reader even noticing. His story conveys the destruction that the treatment in the thai prisons can do to the soul whilst highlighting the strength that friendship can give. He also gives a refreshingly accurate portrayal of the Thai culture which gives his accounts amazing depth. I think i will be thinking about his story for a long time.

Warren Fellows, a convicted drug dealer, suffered at the hands of inmates, guards and the appalling conditions inside the notorious Bang Kwang gaol in Bangkok. Although no doubt guilty, Fellows suffered unimaginable horrors which would surely test the most hardened criminal mind. His ordeal can only be described as a living nightmare including beatings, malnutrition, disease and the onset of madness.
On Reading this, you can only begin to imagine the humiliation and suffering a human being is capable of inflicting on another. A must read book.

Even after reading Robert Davies' book (Prisoner 13498) about prison life in China, i found Fellows' book a lot harder to swallow. His blunt narration delivers cold shocks of perverse human-concieved wickedness. Just when you think human beings are capable of existing in no lower form than illustrated by him, he is dealt yet another blow. An extroadinarily captivating (and concise) biography underlining the exertion of willpower amidst a hopeless world. Depressing but MUST READ!!

At first I kept thinking, 'well you shouldn't have smuggled heroin then!" but then as the story goes on you realise no one should have to go through what this guy did, and you actually start to feel sorry for him. He admits he did wrong, and doesn't ask for people to forgive him for smuggling heroin, but the torture that he experienced is horrific. He says so himself that he is lucky to come out alive.

From confinement rooms to mutiny... this book keeps you glued. I read this book in 3 days and couldn't put it down.

I could not put this book down, my life totally stopped for a day. There is not one single other book on this planet that has effected me as much as "The damage done".
This book is certainly not a means for warren fellows to make you think him innocent, he freely admits his guilt, but by the last page you will certainly think that this man, or any other prisoner in the three thai prisons you visit with Mr Fellows along the way, did not deserve the severe punishment inflicted upon him daily, in the most horrific conditions imaginable.
You can almost smell feel and hear everything that Fellows describes he is truly a talented writer and anyone will admire this amazing man for dragging up the worst twelve years of his life from the depths of his soul, and putting it down on paper for everyone to experiance.
I will now never ever set foot in Thailand and anyone who reads this will certainly never smuggle any drug in or out of Thailand.
This book will definitley shock you and may very well break your heart but it will most certainly make you question the nature of the human race and the depths of depravity mankind will sink to given the oppurtunity.

The barbaric conditions and guard brutality made me squirm. Another great read from the same publisher is Hard Time: A Brit in America's Toughest Jail

I'm no fan of reading, in fact I've only read a couple of book ever.. But now I understand what people mean when they say 'I just couldn't put the book down'.
This book was fantastic, what Warren has experienced in his life most of us will hopefully never. Make no mistake this guy is guilty of his crime but the punishment is a complete nightmare!
Although a free man now his mind will be imprisoned forever..
& if your planning a trip to Thailand it might be worth reading on your return not before you go.. :)

After visiting Thailand for over a month this book is spoke of with an excitment that 'you have to read this' amoungst the Western traveller, that I had to purchase a copy. It is a book that will be read in 3 days tops, regardless, because it cannot be put down. The story is one of Hell on Earth within a Bangkok prision translated as 'Big Tiger.' Death is placed above life & the drug that cast Warren Fellows there becomes an element of his means to survive. There is little hatred, little anger & no self pity or cries of injustice. Warren Fellows was guilty & took his punishment. He writes with a beautiful honesty, fact & truth on what experience he lived during those years. Standing aside from what is right or wrong in soceity as every angel needs a devil & every angel needs a devil that we are all hypocrites, there is one thing this book clearly illustrates & that is the level of pure hatred & little respect to the value of worth in life for both sides. That sadly not many people above 40 will read this book.
