I read this for research on my next book, I only gave it 3/5 because it not well written, but the content is interesting. It good that someone in his position has written a book like this.

Another book I just read, this was utter crap, he does not like women and it shows in his writing.
I rate this 4/10, he did create a interesting character with Salander but wrecked it by going to far with the women hatred text.
I also disliked his way of chopping the chapters.

Escape: The true story of the only Westerner ever to break out of Thailand’s Bangkok Hilton by David McMillan — Reviews, Dis…

Just finished reading this and I give it 5/10,  I think he could have talked more about the relationships with the other inmates.
It suffered from lack of professional editing it seemed to me to be a brain dump without a story plan.
Even the escape is dragged out and boring, and the life on the run lacking detail, the letters at the end show what he could have made a better story, but indicative of his laziness just copied and paste.
