Publisher's Summary

Internationally best-selling book, Hotel K is the home of the Bali Nine and the Bali Bombers. Not to be missed. Welcome to Hotel Kerobokan, or Hotel K, the tongue-in-cheek nickname for Kerobokan Jail, Bali's most notorious prison. It is a dark, bizarre and truly frightening underworld of sex, drugs, violence and squalor. Hotel K has become home to a procession of the infamous and the tragic, from the Bali Bombers to the Bali Nine. In Hotel Kerobokan's filthy, cramped and disease-ridden cells, a 'United Nations of prisoners' - Australians, Americans, Germans, Brazilians, French, English, Scottish, Mexicans, Italians - live crushed together in misery. Petty thieves and small-time drug users share cells with killers, rapists and gangsters. Hardened drug traffickers sleep alongside unlucky tourists, who've seen their holiday turn from paradise to hell over an ecstasy tablet. Hotel K is the shocking inside story of the jail and its inmates, revealing the wild 'sex nights' organised by corrupt guards for prisoners who have the money to pay, the rampant drug use, the suicides and killings, and the days out at the beach. It takes you behind the grim walls and exposes the jail's role in supplying high-grade drugs to tourists and dealers on the outside, the gang that rules the jail with terror, the corruption that means anything is for sale, and the squalor and misery endured by prisoners in stinking, overcrowded conditions.

Meh

Maybe it was the way it was read and/or maybe it was the way it jumped from one little story to the next, but I really didn't get into this book. However, the genre and topic of the book were right up my alley; and the content certainly wasn't boring.

nope.

this book is basically a bunch of stories that hop all over the place and loosely follow a shallow plot. of all the prison survival books I've read, THIS is the worst.
