really liked it

Prison memoirs are not my thing, but Kenneth Hartman's slim but potent life story takes you out of your day to day life and places you directly in his shoes. Not only is it a fascinating glimpse of life as a prisoner for life without parole, but it's also a hopeful book. Despite everything, Hartman wishes for a better life and strives to be happy and find peace. One finishes the book with a radically different perspective on the American prison system.
