Publisher's Summary

In 1978, Warren Fellows was convicted of heroin trafficking between Thailand and Australia. He was sentenced to life imprisonment in the notorious Bang Kwang prison - better known as the Bangkok Hilton. It was the beginning of 12 years of hell in a place where sewer rats and cockroaches are the only nutritious food, where prison guards laugh as they deliver pulverising blows, and where the worst punishment is the khun deo - solitary confinement, Thai style.
The Damage Done is one man's story of an unthinkable nightmare. It is not Warren Fellows' plea for forgiveness nor his denial of guilt, but a story of endurance and survival and the abuse of human rights during the decade of a life wasted in leg irons. It is an essential listen: heartbreaking, fascinating, and impossible to pause.

Remarkable -- in every way! Every minute is great

This may be the best book i've listened to all year. It is truly remarkable in every way: the story is gripping, horrifying, and illuminating; the writing is tight, to the point, and creative; and the narrator is one of the, if not the, best i've ever heard -- his timing and intonation is perfect.

Ever wondered what it's like in a prison? How about the worst one in the world? This guy describes the unbelievably inhuman living conditions and torture that the Thai prison system put him through. And he explains how it was not only hell to live through, but how it has scarred him for life.

I listened to this book during my commute and i actually looked forward to it every day (how often can you say that?). I was actually happy when there was a traffic jam or slowdown because i got to listen to more of the book. I was really disappointed when it was over.

Listen to this book -- you will be captivated from start to finish.

Foreign Prison Systems are Brutal

Would you consider the audio edition of The Damage Done to be better than the print version?

Did not read the print version

Any additional comments?

Great listen. Felt like I was in a prison cell suffering alongside the guy.

Could not stop listening

Where does The Damage Done rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of those books where I struggled getting into work on time. I sat in the car dreading to pause it as I did not want to stop listening. There is only one other book so far that has captured me in such a way. Absolutely brilliant book.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Warren Fellows tells is story of being holed up in Bangkok Prisons. Quite rightly he was convicted of smuggling heroin. However, no human being should suffer in such a way and whilst he doesn't plead pity and takes full responsibility you can't help feeling some pity as he reveals a harrowing account of what he saw happen to others, the filth and excrement they lived in, the murders, the insanity and appalling conditions over all.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

All of it.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Oh yes!

Any additional comments?

Definitely would recommend a listen.
