This is an excellent book and some of the things you read in it will blow your mind..the only thing that would have been nice would have been an extra chapter at the end to tell you what happened next ie 6 months after he got released

This book is just brilliant. There are hundreds of books out there with stories of what life was like on the inside. But this is just brilliant. I have read this book 3 times and every time it seems to get better.

Read it, it is a must!

  Must buy non-fiction!

I lost sleep over this book because I couldn't put it down! I'd wake up in the middle of the night, and start reading! Recommended for any reader. I normally like easy reading girly trash novels.

Once I started reading this book, I found it difficult to put down. Rusty Young writes with enthusiasm and generates so much interest you want to keep reading. Marching Powder largely documents Thomas Mcfadden's incarceration in San Pedro, but the real anti-star of the book turns out to be the prison itself. Some of the events and activities that take place within the prison walls defy belief, and it certainly becomes clear why San Pedro is regarded as one of the most notorious prisons in Bolivia, possibly in that part of the world as well. An excellent book, well worth buying!

Just read it & you still wont belive it! But things like this still happen today, not so much in britain but in places such as Bolivia where it is the norm for inmates and their wives & children to live in prison with them, where pure cocaine is manufactured in the prison, where inmates buy their own cells oh & if a prisoner doesnt want to cook for themselves they can pop into one of the on site prison restuarants owned & run by the inmates! Not to mention the heiracy in prison from the slums to the 5 & a half * cells owned by wealthy prisoners. If a tourist wants a tour they are truely welcome & they can even stay the night! Yes all very strange but very very true in the time when san pedro prison was open! Be prepared to be shocked & surprised, i still cant stop telling people to buy this amazing book!
