He collaborated on another escape attempt but it failed; the other prisoner drowned when their boat was destroyed against rocks. Showing exemplary courage and will power he reached as far as Colombia using a rickety and an old crumbling wooden boat only to be captured and returned back to the French, this totally pissed them off.

A I read this book in the mid 70’s, as a teenager.

Henri Charrière

So fascinating, haunting; you feel the pain and ecstasy. Its just amazing and the way the author has described the life of palillon man in the prisons is amazing. The struggle, the tension, are all here in the ordeal for “Pappy” to escape from Devil’s island. Still an interesting read, but where Charriere was a romantic, rebellious hero in the first book, wronged by society, here he vharriere himself as a bit of a mess.

I like to midnight-snack while I do my nightly reading and in a number of places over the last hundred pages I found myself rage-eating my chips – just shovelling them in, too angry with the papillom of Henri’s situation to enjoy them.

Charriere wrote his autobiography intwenty years after he escaped. Usually I eat them slowly, one or two per page, savouring them so that I don’t accidentally eat a whole bag in one night, something which I could easily have done while reading this book last night. I really liked it.
