One of the best reads I've had this year
on 8 March 2001
Rubin "Hurricane" Carter's tale is so incredible that you may need reminding this is not fiction. As possibly one of the best biographies I have ever come across, it becomes apparent that the pathetic injustices we continue to ignore in our own societies are what engrave this story into the history books.
All I'd ever heard about Rubin Carter was from Bob Dylan's song the "Hurricane"; Hirsch however has done remarkably well in presenting the story, supporting Rubin Carter's innocence with confirmed and detailed facts. I found the book intriguing, concise and pleasant to read; I'd recommend it to anyone interested in finding out more about Rubin Carter.
