Eye of the Hurricane: My Path from Darkness to Freedom is a self-portrait of Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, a twentieth-century icon and controversial victim of the U.S. justice system turned spokesperson for the wrongfully convicted. In this moving narrative Dr. Carter tells of all the "prisons" he has survived--from his childhood through his wrongful incarceration and after. A spiritual as well as a factual autobiography, Eye of the Hurricane explores Carter's personal philosophy, born of the unimaginable duress of wrongful imprisonment and conceived through his defiance of the brutal institution of prison and ten years of solitary confinement. His is not a comfortable story or a comfortable philosophy, but it offers hope for those who have none and serves as a call to action for those who abhor injustice. Eye of the Hurricane may well change the way we view crime and punishment in the twenty-first century.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The book, Eye of the Hurricane: My Path from Darkness to Freedom, by Dr. Rubin “Hurricane” Carter is about how Carter talks about being in jail even though he is innocent. It was an okay book, some of parts were good, some parts were bad. It was good on how he described like being in prison. It was not so good on how he got too descriptive on some inappropriate parts. I would recommend this to adults.
