Very informative

Would you consider the audio edition of Unusual Punishment to be better than the print version?

I have not read the print version. I enjoyed listening to this and learned so much.

What other book might you compare Unusual Punishment to and why?

Being non-fiction it is difficult to compare this book with any other book.

Which scene was your favorite?

I enjoyed the scenes where the inmates were giving their version of the story or events that took place. But it was also interesting to hear from the guards. The sequence of events leading up to the bomb going off in an officers hand was very intense.

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

No. This book was a lot to digest for me. First of all, I knew very little about the subject and was intrigued by the cover and subject matter. I enjoyed all of the story. Very Very detailed and obviously well researched.

Any additional comments?

I received this book from Audiobook Boom in exchange for an honest review. I enjoyed the book. I did have to listen to the narrator at a slightly higher speed but that is a personal preference for me.
