My Thoughts


Ok this book was a little bit better than the last one that I read by Glenn but I am still having a lot of issues. I need a book, I consider stories that are this many pages to be either a short story or a novella. This is not a complete book to me. I’m sorry but it’s just not, all of them have been extremely short and I am starting to think that maybe he should have put them all together and they would have made up a book.


Like I said before I like the story, I think it is very informative and he is doing a great thing by speaking out about what happened in prison while he was there. He is exposing who and what is corrupt but I just think it could be done better.


I really do enjoy what he has to say and the story he has to tell but I just feel like a lot of the details are missing and there is not enough to the story. It’s just too short for me and the ending always makes me feel like I was left hanging.


Maybe I am being too harsh but I really want to  like these book and I would just like to see them improved upon.
