Description du produit

From Publishers Weekly

In 2001, bestselling novelist Archer (Sons of Fortune; etc.) was sentenced to four years' imprisonment for perjury. Volume one of his diaries detailed his first 22 days at a facility for violent offenders; volume two described his move to a place mostly populated by drug offenders and armed robbers. Volume three opens on Day 89, as Archer arrives at North Sea Camp, an "open" prison for well-behaved lifers and convicts nearing parole. As hospital orderly, Archer has certain perks—a private room with bath—and a full work schedule, essential for staving off prison's big challenge: boredom. Being a writer helps; he fills the hours writing his diary and interviewing fellow inmates. There's a whole lot of tedious "what I ate for breakfast"-type entries which make a strong case for how dull prison life really is. There's no discussion anywhere of Archer's crime and little talk of British Conservative politics; the focus stays on daily prison life. Archer's fiction fans will read this volume just to see him home free; for prison reform advocates, the entire series may open doors to Archer's other work.

Présentation de l'éditeur

Day 115

Saturday 10th November 2001

6.38am

It's all an act. I am hopelessly unhappy, dejected and broken. I smile when I am at my lowest, I laugh when I see no humour, I help others when I need help myself. I am alone. If I were to show any sign, even for a moment, of what I'm going through, I would have to read the details in some tabloid the following day. Everything I do is only a phone call away from a friendly journalist with an open cheque book. I don't know where I have found the strength to maintain this facade and never break down in anyone's presence.

The final volume of Jeffrey Archer's prison diaries, A Prison Diary Volume III: Heaven, covers the period of his transfer from Wayland to his eventual release on parole in July 2003. It includes a shocking account of the traumatic time he spent in the notorious Lincoln jail and the events that led to his incarceration there - it also throws light on a system that is close to breaking point.

Told with humour, compassion and honesty, it closes with a thought-provoking manifesto that should be applauded by the Establishment and prison population alike.

3 brilliant Diary's ,but why didn't anyone listen and use Jeffrey Archers experiences to Chang the way prisoners are treated .i would have thought ,he came to see quiet clearly what had to be done in Her Majesties prisons. . It's depressing to see just how little the government has changed . Despite having somebody on the inside collecting data and recording all that was going on , no Politicians have changed this system in anyway . I am expat and not always up to date about changes happening in England , however we see enough violence on TV and it has been said "violence just breeds more violence it's depressing to see that

2.0 étoiles sur 5 very disappointed 4 février 2014

After reading this present diary volume ones and two I thought I would get redemption and volume three. Boy was I wrong.
Let me preface my words by saying I love Jeffrey archer's books and have read dozens of them. These books were depressing they dragged and I shall never recommend them to anyone.
I realize that they are true stories and the Lord archer really did suffer these purgatory but that doesn't mean that I had to suffer if only I had known.
On the plus side I learned an awful lot about the ins and outs of prison life and how to beat the system and how to be treated terribly unfairly.
I remember when Lord archer was sentenced to prison for a minor offense and did not understand any of the depths of what he went through while he was incarcerated. I am now much the wiser but in reality I did not need this experience. Good luck Laura Roger and I shall continue to redo your fictional books I am now waiting for the latest volume of the Clinton series but I will stick to only fictional things that you write from now on you do have an incredible engaging mine and great talent. If anyone wants to spend a few weeks under real downer read volumes 123 of the prison diaries otherwise avoid them like the plague.

My husband loves Jeffrey Archer books. This was no exception. Very interesting reading
5.0 étoiles sur 5 All thee books are riveting 10 juin 2016

I was fascinated by hearing my favorite author was in-prisoned, but was amazed at the injustice of the penal system. I was fascinated by all the inmates stories, and encouraged by loyalties of the prison mates he came to know. The drug problem seems to make sense now, in all countries experiencing violence. A good read, enlightening but horrific at "top brass" revenge tactics. I hope The Judge gets his just rewards.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Patels are not Sikhs 5 février 2014
Par AMRISH KUMAR GOEL - Publié sur Amazon.com

I have read most books written by Jeffry Archer. I enjoy a lot the way he describes the details of characters, places and events. Still I found this mistake in this novel. I had accepted many details earlier to be true and was quite impressed by the research and experience put into writing. Patels are Sikhs is not true. Patels are from Gujrat state in India and Sikhs are from Punjab state. Sikhs can easily be identified with turbo and beard. Sikhs also required to keep a comb under their turban, a sword ( now a days a small symbolic dagger which is harmless) and must wear a long underwear.
I hope these prison diaries bring some reforms in British prisons and improve lives of people there.
