Sintesi dell'editore

A Prayer Before Dawn is the true story of one man's fight to survive inside Klong Prem prison, the notorious Bangkok Hilton. Billy Moore traveled to Thailand to escape a life of drug addiction and alcoholism. He managed to overcome his inner demons for a time but relapsed after trying ya ba, a highly addictive form of methamphetamine. Moore's life quickly descended into chaos, drug dealing, and violence until he was eventually arrested and imprisoned in Klong Prem, a place where life has no value.

A Prayer Before Dawn is no ordinary prison memoir; it's the story of one man's struggle to survive in one of the world's toughest prisons. It's also a story of redemption in the most unlikely of places.

Fascinating Tale

Really an incredible tale. I appreciated Billy's ability to look at himself and really understand his addiction and his choices. He did not offer any grand conclusion just his experiences and they were worth telling. It was hard to hear some of the human rights abuses but it is important for the world to consider. Are drug offenses worthy of taking away someone's freedom and dignity? Will it cure their addiction. I would suggest that there are better answers to these questions then prison.

Finish your stories and chaptors

Watched the movie before buying this The movie did not even tell much of his story nor mention he was a scouser Book was always cut off at the interesting parts. Chapters are way way too short. Hardly any story is finished all the way to the end. I could probaly write a better book myself. Also the man who was doing the audio from the book had the WORSE fake scouse accent ever which was none stop annoying

Why didnt Billy narrate this!

Great story; but the person narrating the story has the worst accent ever! Hes either a fake scouser or a scouser trying to be "better spoken", and this is coming from a scouser!! Would of loved Billy to of narrated this, would of given the story a more authentic feel. Overall good story.

A natural author

considering the author of this book was from the streets of Liverpool and have no literary experience he did have a natural talent for writing which blew me away. what's the movie after reading the book and I much prefer the book.
