A further insight into Papillon's character.,
This review is from: Banco: The Further Adventures of Papillon (Paperback)
When I first read 'Papillon' I had no idea that there was a sequel. I was over the moon when I finally discovered it, and I wasn't disappointed! This book follows pretty much straight on from the last one as Papillon becomes a Venezuelan citizen and starts to carve a new life for himself as a free man. If you loved the original book then you'll love this one too. It answers a lot of questions as well. In the first book he constantly insists his innocence, going over and over the events that had led him to be 'unfairly' branded a crimal and sent to the French penal colonies. In this book you get a deeper insight into his character and you begin to realise that he almost definitely was guilty. Brilliant stuff!

Ah! the only commentator who realised that Papillon was a common criminal who was set up by the French police, as the only way to get rid of a pest to society.
