What can I say apart from he has done it again.

After reading “Lessons from a Drug Lord” I was really looking forward to reading more from the English Shaun series, and I must say, it didn’t disappoint. As I am yet to read “Hard Time” or “Prison Time” I am unsure what happened when he was inside, but one thing I am sure of is that he crafted his writing skills to a fine art. This book flowed and captivated me from the first page to the last. With an effortless writing style that made it hard, if

In Hard Time we heard the fascinating tale of Attwood's downfall when it all went wrong and he ended up on remand in what is reputed to be America's toughest prison. Party Time takes us back a few years, touching briefly on Atwood's early years before charting his rise and eventual fall that Hard Time documented so well.

Young Shaun had ambition and an eye for a profit that suggested a successful career lay ahead, but a casual introduction to raves and recreational drugs sowed the seed that ultim

I don't think I've ever flew through a book as fast as this. Fast paced and very hard to put down. It very much reminded me of The Electric Kool Aid Acid Test due to the colourful characters and shear craziness of the drug parties, Shaun being the Ken Casey of the 90s.

I almost only gave it 4 stars because of the way it abruptly ends but didn't think it would be fair with it being a prequel. looking forward to following the story on with Hard Time
PARTY TIME is a fantastic book looking into Attwoods success in the stock industry and in the drug trade, this ultimately becomes his downfall as shown in HARD TIME the first in the trilogy. The story is fascinating and I especially like how even thou it can be seen as an autobiography it is written as if it were a fictional narrative piece which makes the book an even more interesting read. I can't wait to read the next book in the trilogy PRISON TIME!

Great read which leaves you aghast at the hedonisms of the 90s rave scene in Arizona.
The bad-boy author wins sympathy from the reader as we see him go from aspirational younger banker to the head of an underworld drugs cartel.
The array of characters with their drug dealer code-names does get confusing some times but there's so much going on, you don't so much mind if you can't keep up with who is who.
Daryl Ariawan
Party time is a prequel to hard time and its really good. It gives you an overview about Shaun life that lead him to the jail. Its well written, really enjoyable to read. This book gives me a view about drug scene in US and how drugs can change someone life.
What a ride. The pills thrills and spills. Only the fact I knew the ending lost a star having read Hard Times. Some remarkable characters.

In prison, I read over 1000 books in just under six years, including many literary classics. Books were the lifeblood of my rehabilitation.

As told on National Geographic Channel's Locked-Up/Banged-Up Abroad episode "Raving Arizona," I used a tiny pencil sharpened on a cell door to write the first prison blog, Jon’s Jail Journal. My writing, smuggled out of the jail with the highest rate of death
