I found Archer's A PRISON DIARY unexpectedly thoughtful, moving and irresistable. It's prose is quick-witted, and thoroughly enjoyable though the descriptions of the murderers and heinous crimes are disturding at best. I read this book in quick time and have recommended it many times over. Read and learn. Read and enjoy.

This was captivating reading, one of those books I literally couldn't put down until I'd read it through.

I had sought and expected the usual Archer novel-a light summer read. Ironically, on the eve of the Blackout of 2003, I found myself absorbing yet another set of unthinkable circumstances. 'A Prison Diary' was a stark surprise-- a riveting, wry and instructive account of Britsh prison life. Archer (at least by his account), adapted to unnatural and confining conditions with class and intelligence. He even managed to produce a revealing book that represents a contribution to British society. Perhaps I'm naive, but I believe him. (I also believe Martha Stewart....)

A great insight to prison life. After his stay in prison, he could run a prison much better than the authorities on the outside who have no idea of life outside of their privileged upbringings.

Come on! Reading this book was like watching paint dry. So he sat next to a murderer for a few minutes. Big deal. He could have told the whole story in 10 pages. Instead he stretched it out to over 200 pages. I am sorry but this book is not worth reading.

I have no opinion regarding the justice of the sentence which sent Jeffrey Archer to prison. Yet, if boredom is a crime then this book unquestionably a felonious act for which the author deserves time.
