This is a heartbreaking story but also a story about survival and finding the positive in life no matter what A truly great story I did som research after reading the book because this person and her story really got to me i tried to search her up and find out what has happened in her and I did Beatrice Saubin spent ages 20 31 in a Malaysian prison for a crime she didn't commit Despite her initial horror and despair Beatrice eventually became resigned to her circumstances and committed herself to positive action She learned Malay and Cantonese; she was entrusted with medical care of prisoners she received some privileges that others didn't Make no mistake this was no easy life The conditions of the prison and behavior of guards were horrific She tells her tale with brutal honesty and infusing it with the deep despair she felt at times It is not an easy story to read but there are many redeeming moments Невероятна история за силата на инстинкта за оцеляване за свободата на човешкия дух макар и контрастираща с тази на тялото за надеждата в очакване на по светъл ден дори в условията на непрекъснат страх и мизерия Свободолюбие наивност страх тревога влияние на семейството обич и презрение са една малка частичка от всички елементи засегнати във вдъхновяващата история на човек опознал традициите на различни народи и несправедливо изгубил години от живота си A wonderful readthe story of Beatrice's life is a remarkable and heart wrenching story of one incident going terribly wrong and changing a young innocent's life for the absolute worst but without the feeling of dread looming over it like most autobiographies of this nature I felt as though I really knew Beatrice and was awaiting anxiously for her freedom The reason I have this book only 4 stars was due to a few grammatical errors which I'm assuming happened in translation since the book was originally written in French I loved this book and highly recommend Auch wenn das Buch ja überhaupt nicht in meine bevorzugten Genres fällt habe ich es ziemlich verschlungen Béas Geschichte lässt sich schnell und flüssig lesen und fesselt auf eine traurige Art und Weise Natürlich stellt man sich die Frage ob sie wirklich so naiv war und tatsächlich so unschuldig ist wie sie immer beteuert aber etwas anderes zuzugeben wäre vermutlich auch ziemlich unklug Ob ich den zweiten Teil noch lesen möchte weiß ich allerdings noch nicht so recht This is an amazing story of this poor girls life I can't even imagine This young woman's courage is incredible and the determination of her grandmother Her personal story is one of my favorite reads
