5.0 out of 5 stars What a read!, 22 Jan. 2006
This is one of few books that I continue to reread every few years cover to cover. The book is conversational in tone but the experiences are so personal and extreme that you feel that you have met and know Henri.
There is a great deal of humour and wisdom in the book unlike the disapointing film version which was standardised prison break adventure.
A difficult book to sum up but it has always amazed me that Henri found so much goodness in people, so much to admire in the most bleak and unlikely surroundings.
