An immediate sensation upon its publication in 1969, Papillon is a vivid memoir of brutal penal colonies, daring prison breaks and heroic adventure on shark-infested seas.

Papillon takes place in the 1930s - 40s is the amazing true story of Henri Charrière (nicknamed Papillon, French for butterfly), a French citizen wrongly convicted of murder in corrupt times and sentenced to life in Penal Settlement in French Guinea.

His style of writing is so easy to read and compelling that even before he gets shipped off to serve his life sentence you are gripped to his story. He tells his story of his amazing endurance and courage to try and escape many times, and you just think ' how does he carry on'! For days, months, even years he managed to keep himself alive and healthy by just pacing around his cell and thinking up escape plans, and plans for vengeance etc.

Even more amazing however, is the extent of his numerous escape attempts and how each one is undergone. From his very arrival he says to the other prisoners he befriends he is going to get out and manages to make his first attempt a mere 42 days into his sentence. Truly remarkable!

The only drawback, if any, is that it can be a little slow at times but his writing style manages to keep you there all the way through.

Full of suspense, character, willfulness and depth, Papillon is one hell of a true adventure that is, to say the least, awe inspiring!

10/10

 A must read!
