an excellent read, I took 2 days - I couldn't stop. Jonathan Aitken writes as he speaks which makes for a very easy reading of his account of events in prison and afterwards. No point repeating the synopsis but several stories made me laugh out loud, he manages to see the funny side of some situations. Others make you reach for the hankie, describing the plight of some of our young people unable to read, with no sense of being loved and with a bleak future in front of them. The story is up to date including some events earlier this year (2005) and I intend to buy some of his other books anticipating more good writing.
