Description

Orange Is the New Black With her career, live-in boyfriend and loving family, Piper Kerman barely resembles the rebellious young woman who got mixed up with drug runners and delivered a suitcase of drug money to Europe over a decade ago. But when she least expects it, her reckless past catches up with her; convicted and sentenced to fifteen months at an infamous women's prison in Connecticut, Piper becomes inmate #11187-424. From her first strip search to her final release, she learns to navigate this strange world with its arbitrary rules and codes, its unpredictable, even dangerous relationships. She meets women from all walks of life, who surprise her with tokens of generosity, hard truths and simple acts of acceptance. Now an original comedy-drama series from Netflix, Piper's story is a fascinating, heartbreaking and often hilarious insight into life on the inside.

    I get that tying this book in with the TV series makes sense on a marketing level. However, anybody buying this thinking it resembles the TV series will be disappointed. Although he TV series has taken some of the characters and nuances the two are very different beasts. What you do get is a frank memoir of life in a women's prison in America, shining a light on the failings of the system. It is a fascinating insight into the system and one women's journey within it. Pipers journey is fascinating and it's easy to empathise with her and the people she meets along the way. Enjoy the book for what it is, just don't expect the TV version.

    I read this prior to the show, and I have to say the book was lovely. Very open very honest. I would recommend this book to others. On a side note I found the show entertaining if nothing like the book.
