It was meant to be a two-week holiday to celebrate her sister's birthday, but for Schapelle Corby it ended up a waking nightmare. Arrested at Denpasar airport after marijuana was found in her luggage, she became the victim of every traveller's darkest fear. Over four kilograms of drugs had been planted in her bag after she'd checked it in and she was forced to face the con ...more

This topic of shappelle always brings debate, I believe her to be innocent based on the facts I know of which include the court case. Interesting read.

I have followed Schapelles case since day 1 and could never decide if she was innocent or guilty but after reading her story I was left in no doubt as to her innnocence.

I am also in little doubt as to indonesias govt's lack of care for human life. What Schapelle has had to endure in the first 5 years of her sentence no body should have to put up with. On the flip side if even Schapelle is a little bit guilty of this crime the time already served should be more than enough. Imposing a 20 year se

I have read nearly half of the book and I am not sure if it is the Dutch translation but sometimes this girl annoys me how she thinks the world and everything in it should all be circled around her.

I became interested when I learned about the Bali 9 and yes it is stupid to smuggle but that 2 of those 9 were executed was really tough. Felt so for their loved ones. In that book I read about this girl. She says she did not do it so I thought she was truthful but I am not so sure afte

Where to begin? How about by saying that I truly feel sorry for Schapelle and the miscarriage of justice that she was subjected to. It really is a shame that she wasn't entitled to the same rights that she would have been back in her native country.

Having said that the whole book was a big sob story. I was expecting juicy prison gossip and her struggle to survive on a daily basis. She whinges about everything (understandably) but at the same time she had the Australian government bankrolling a

A true story not for the faint of heart. If you want to continue living in la-la land where bad things only happen to bad people and good wins over evil, you shouldn't read Schapelle's story. Guilty or innocent? Whatever your opinion is, you can't argue with the fact that her trial was in no way fair. What sealed the question for me is a blog that simply stated - Guilty people don't beg for forensic testing of the evidence. I'm sick thinking of her suffering in pr

When I first heard about the news of someone being arrested and the prospect they might be innocent I was upset, but once I found out more about the case and the people involved I was devastated. I never believed for once she was guilty of her crimes and as you read through the pages you can’t help but be moved and wish you could do something. She has gone through a lot of troubles to live in a world that would be hard to imagine. Even with graphic detail described in her troubled voice you coul ...more

The arrest, trial and conviction of Schapelle Corby occured in the few years just proceeding my move away from Australia in 2008, but it remains one of the most talked-about legal cases that I can remember in my lifetime. For those outside of Australia, her name may be vaguely familiar, but for Australians over the age of 25 or so, it was a case that everyone had an opinion about.

For anyone not familiar with the case, Schapelle was arrested in Indonesia, after more than 4 kilograms of marjuana

I decided to read this book because I was browsing through the library and picked it out.

This novel completes the category on the bingo board 'A diary, biography or autobiography.' Being an autobiography, it gave me an immensely personal perspective on what Schapelle Corby endured. It enables the reader to feel her pain, and understand her suffering. It allows people to hear her side of the story and listen to what she has to say. She sets the record straight about all the lies and ridiculous st

I, like many Aussie's, followed Schapelle's story in the news headlines every day. None of us could seem to believe that someone would be so stupid enough to smuggle drugs into Bali (We all grow up knowing our Indonesian neighbours tight policies on drugs) ..let alone in such an obvious way. Australia's border security has always prided itself on being super tight, so this story was so interesting to the public. This book was great. It's written in an emotional no-holds-barred way, direct and de ...more

This is quite a controversial book, which sparked conversation (even amongst strangers) wherever I went with it. It would seem that Schapelle Corby is the modern day Lindy Chamberlain, and her guilt/innocence will be discussed long into the future.

I was warned that this book was quite graphic, and very depressing, but I thought that if Schapelle can live it, I can read it. I'm glad I did. It was refreshing to hear her point of view, and not the media version wihch has hindered her situation beyo

A book of integrity, family love, injustice and a corrupt legal system. This book backed up everything I thought all along about this poor woman and her fight for injustice, My heart goes out to herself and her family, I could not possible imagine what she is going through daily in there. I hope that one day her fire will burn bright again and she lives a normal happy life back in her own country where she belongs!

This is a MUST READ for anyone interested in the Shapelle Corby case. I admit I was a fence sitter before but now I am convinced Shapelle was a victim of airport (Sydney) crime. If the Bali Custom Officers had done their job properly and she had been given a fair trial I truly believe Shapelle would be a free woman today. This book is also a fascinating (and very shocking) insight into life at 'Hotel K'. Loved the cartoon at the end - it sums up the Bali judicial system to a T!

I can't believe she is still in jail because I don't think she did it. There must be a lot of people who are in jails for false charges in the world. I wanted to go to Bali one day but from reading this book I'm not sure if I still want to go there. I'll have to make sure my bags are locked every time when I get on the airplane from now on.

I hadn't heard of shapelle before I read this so had no idea that she would remain imprisoned in the end! I'm convinced of her innocence and shocked at the handling of the case, even if she had of been guilty!
not for the faint hearted. I wish her much luck for the future, whatever that may be

A controversial autobiography, written by a controversial woman. It's difficult to know what the truth is in the Schapelle Corby case when there are so many possibilities, though Corby's depiction of life inside an Indonesian prison is quite interesting.

I loved it. I couldn't put this book down. It was fascinating finally reading the story from the cats mouth rather than the media.
I believe she is innocent now.

Amazing story. This is a real eye-opener. Always lock your luggage. I feel so bad for Schapelle and hope that someone will be able to help her.

It's the book you hate to love reading. It's heartbreaking, honest and most of all terrifying. This girl is literally living in a waking nightmare. Definitely a must read.

Read in one sitting over xmas. Sad story about a young Aussie girl who gets "framed" for bring in 4 kilos of pot into Bali. Reads like you are reading a diary of her life before, during and current.

This book is really hard to review without giving your personal opinion which I didn't really want to share however not giving my opinion would mean my review would seem harsh. I chanced upon this book for $1 donation to raise money for Cancer research and I must say it is a book that I would not have purchased at full price. I do not know if Corby is guilty of the crime or not and I don't like to support criminal activity in any way especially financing someones book which would make money for ...more

Love the story because I've been following her story for some time but still not sure whether she actually did bring in the drugs or not.

I have read this book for three long months and found it a very hard read. When I read I get very into a book and here much more because the person and events are real. The descriptions of the living conditions changed my opinion of Bali and it is no longer a desirable destination for me. This book made me think about the safety of my loved ones when they travel. The purpose of the book is to inform and educate and there it is a success hence the four stars.

Straight out of the movies everyone's greatest fear when it comes to travelling is made into a reality for a young lady Schapelle Leigh Corby. Schapelle Corby would be living in a nightmare after 4.6 kg or 9.3 lb of cannabis was put into her bag after checking it in. What was supposed to be a relaxing vacation with her family turned into such a disaster and her being arrested and put into a bail prison. Though completely innocent she was forced to face the consequences of someone else's crime in ...more

I'm trying not to let the fact that I put out a five-star review on some other book effect another recent read, but ultimately that mental block is just irresistible. can't fight being human. can't fight the urge to "balance" the existence of a five-star book with a three star somewhere along the line. a high 3? an impressive, professional piece of (ghost-) writing? if only I could actually just rate a 3.5 on a possible 3.7ish piece of work? ahh... what a series of mental loops...

With my newfound love for traveling, it wasn’t a surprise that the story of Schapelle Corby, ‘Ganja Queen’ caught my eye. Traveling can be both liberating and empowering, but can easily be taken away and become crippling.

There is much controversy surrounding Schapelle’s conviction and sentence tied to the weakness of forensic evidence, Bali airport officials refusal to release camera clips, the use of hearsay as evidence, and refusal to investigate airport personnel between her connecting fligh

I found this book interesting but also quite irritating. I agree that what schapelle went/is going through would be extremely traumatic but when I was reading the book I was thinking to myself, why are you allowing such morons to defend you in court? it was frustrating! if your lawyer is sending text messages during your court appearances, you sack them. I've been in court quite a few times, a while back and it's east to tell if you're lawyer is an idiot or not. also, almost every single page, s ...more
