The movie was great - the book even better.

Fantastic story of the life of Henri Charriere. Never a dull moment for the reader. He writes incredible passages of escape attempts dependant on not-so-trustworthy characters - the jailers, other prisoners and local merchants. Numerous physical challenges - one wonders how a man could endure, yet you are compelled to believe his story, told years after his successful escape.

Although the author tends to render himself a bit larger than life, this is a wonderful, absorbing, and upbuilding story. Well worth reading and even rereading.
