Edward Bunker's depiction of prison life in the 1970's is stark and brutal and I can't imagine that prisons have gotten better since then. No one could write such bold realistic scenes about that environment unless they have been there. I was not a Born Again believer at the time, so honestly I enjoyed reading this book. Jails and prisons are animal factory's. I prefer to call them human warehouses where violence and hate is the only form of communication that is constant and understood.

I was familiar with Edward Bunker from reading a previous book, "Education of a Felon", and wanted to explore some of his other works. No Beast So Fierce was a good read. Not too long, not too short. A good look into the mind and lifestyle of a criminal struggling with release from a lengthy incarceration, and the transition to "freedom", with the ankle chain of parole still firmly attached. It is worth noting that parole & probation are better than prison, but still present a host of problems and restrictions that make adjusting back to society even more difficult
