It's the story of Thomas McFadden's experiences in San Pedro Prison, but the book is actually written by Australian author/lawyer Rusty Young. When is this movie actually being released? It's an important book to many readers & travellers alike, with a huge following by a generation of backpackers; they better not stuff up the movie.

Myself and many others have read this book many times and are awaiting for the release of this movie....as a true story this is incredibly unbelievable. This is part of the reason, I think this would be an awesome movie to bring to the big screen. While we wait, we will keep reading this over and over again...must find my copy of the book which has passed through many hands!

I just read this book and was only thinking that this would make a great adaption. I would of loved to see what a director like Danny Boyle would make of it. I think personally he would bring that dark edge to the big screen with dark humour perfectly balanced. He managed to achieve this with trainspotting. I believe a filmsin the making let's hope they don't make a mess of it !

As a young American in the 1970's and 80's, I spent several years incarcerated in San Pedro. I knew one of the characters in the book quite well, although the author changed the character's name per his request. The book is well written and quite accurate, however I could add many more stories of humor and horror of this prison.

well the book is great and will make a good movie. just sad that its 70 percent truth and the rest is dramatized by thomas making himself look better and more important than he really was. but still a great story of the most unique prison ever.

Anyone who enjoyed this book would love Cloud Garden with a similar experience of two men crossing the Darian gap from Panama to Columbia and were kidnapped by militia men. Based ona true story. Also World's most Dangerous places is an interesting read and a big juicy book covering all the scary places in the world based on one man's experience who has been kidnapped and also helped get kidnapped men and women back. Happy readinG!

I'm from Bolivia, exactly the same city as the prision is located, La Paz; when I read the book I was amazed and the same time I felt sad to find out a reality that people live in my country. me and some friend (that also have had read the book) we all went to do social work at prision, and it was subreal being there after reading the book, so sad see all those little childs playing in a jails ground. OMG it is an unbelievable experience. I can't wait to see the movie.
