“A Prison Diary” by FF 8282 (Jeffrey Archer) – Book Review

After a perjury trial, Jeffrey Archer is sentenced to four years jail. He is to spend 22 days in HMP Belmarsh, a high security prison which houses some of Britain’s most violent criminals. The diary is meticulously written for the stay lasting for 22 days from 19th July 2001 to 9th August 2001.

This diary gives you quite a lot of information about how the prison is run, the problems faced by the officers managing the jail, the facilities like gym, Church, etc. available for the prisoners, how drugs are smuggled into the jail, how the network functions inside, etc.

You also come to know about what keeps the life convicts from committing more crime inside the prison, how there are listeners for helping convicts, the respect shown to the author by Jail officers, etc.

The book stands no comparison to the other books written by the Author.

We live in a period where someone posts something on FB and within an hour contacts his friends to check whether they have seen the post! He feels disappointed if a sizable number of them have not seen the post!

There was a time when our elders taught us that reading someone’s diary without his consent is bad manners. Even though this diary is published and is available for everyone to read, I think our elders were wise and I would suggest taking what was told to us seriously….!
