Sarah This book was a great read. I picked it up because the title sounded interesting and then i started reading it and putting it down was hard. I am always curious to find new books on subjects that are more then average. This book was so gripping that I read it anytime i had a spare minute. I also speed read the last 50 pages bc i was curious to find out if the main character survived her year in the prison. I was happy to see that she made it but i was more interested in the details about the prison. How the inmates used contrabands and were trying their hardest to have access to them. It really made me think about the little things in life, (ie. my favourite dessert, pedicures, yoga, and anything i really love) and the pleasures they bring. It gave me appreciation for things that i would regularly take for granted. This book was compelling and for once Oprah read a book that wasn't a classic and wasn't drab,and she was right how great a book it was.
