Publisher's Summary

Based in part on Donn Pearce’s own experiences working on a Florida road gang, this classic story of Cool Hand Luke, the defiant survivor who refused to be defeated by the forces of corrupt authority, is earthy, sensitively written, and revealing.

Like the movie but not

If you decide to get the book please try to put the movie out of your mind. I was almost halfway thru when I decided to start from the beginning and just enjoy the story and the wonderful narrator. The performance is excellent. He gives each and every character a distinct voice full of personality and unique accents. The scene where George Kennedy has a fight with Luke just doesn't happen in the book. And I missed a third of this wonderful performance waiting and trying to match up the movie and book. That's when I started over and glad I did.
