A good listen! Recommend!

If you find stories about prison life fascinating, especially from the point of view of the guards, responsible for day to day operations in that world, you’ll like this audiobook. I have over 700 audible titles in my library, and can be picky. The author shares his experiences as a guard working in the prison system day to day. From the shocking and horrific, to the funny and mundane. His style is clear, flows very well, kept my interest from the very first, to last page, and, I think the narrator did an excellent job as well. He was animated, engaged, very professional, has a very pleasant voice, and, in my opinion, gives an entertaining performance of the authors narrative. This was a great pick. I’m pleased with it. I was not given any compensation for my review, or reduction in price. I just wanted to share my thoughts regarding this title. In my opinion, it’s a winner…

Good story--Hobbled by narrator

This story needs a better narrator. I didn't care for the way Waites pronounced some things and gave emphasis in High-School Lunchroom ways of speaking. While this will not keep me from getting the other books in the series, I will continue to hope for a better narrator. On the narrator continuum, Waites falls between George Guidall (the absolute WORST) and Scott Brick (one of the best.) But Waites is closer to Guidall than Brick, sadly.

Enthralling in parts and unbelievable in others

When I say unbelievable. Its a true account, its just very hard to digest a level of human behaviour that is sometimes portrayed in this account. The writer engaging and appears well versed in first person perspective. There are parts of the book that almost convince you that your standing behind him. It kept me hooked from start to finish and i have very little negative to say.
I just feel the Narrator was not the correct choice. I am almost certain that it is set in Australia and feel that an Australian may have handled the slang and certain terminology with slightly more ease.
But don't allow that to put you off. It is money well spent and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Don't bother

The most boring audible I have listened to by far.
Most of the days are the same and very repetetive.
Do we need to know that on a certain day, you woe up, had two cups of coffee, what your colleagues had for lunch, then went home?

Repetitive

Some good stories but quite repetitive and the writing is pretty basic.

Also, this is set in Australian prisons but is narrated by an American. This is ok for the most part, but grates when he recites Aussie slang!

Given the subject matter and experience of the writer, it could have been an interesting read but misses the mark unfortunately.

Book, took, crook…… chook.

Not a bad yarn, but it’s an Australian story that has a yank narrating.

The attempts of a yank trying to read Australian vernacular was grating at times.

Book, took, crook….. CHOOK! Not Choo-ck. 😂

Great book!

The author comes across as a professional, kind and fair prison Officer. Well written and interesting take on prison life.
Unfortunately, the narrator sounds weird trying to speak Aussie slang.

Honest look at what goes on in prisons

I enjoyed this audio book. It was an interesting insight into an Australian maximum security prison. I only wish the narrator had an Aussie accent as this would make it feel authentic. Mispronunciations of words a little frustrating.
