In 1978, Warren Fellows was convicted of heroin trafficking between Thailand and Australia. He was sentenced to life imprisonment in the notorious Bang Kwang prison - better known as the Bangkok Hilton. It was the beginning of 12 years of hell in a place where sewer rats and cockroaches are the only nutritious food, where prison guards laugh as they deliver pulverising blows, and where the worst punishment is the khun deo - solitary confinement, Thai style.

The Damage Done is one man's story of an unthinkable nightmare. It is not Warren Fellows' plea for forgiveness nor his denial of guilt, but a story of endurance and survival and the abuse of human rights during the decade of a life wasted in leg irons. It is an essential listen: heartbreaking, fascinating, and impossible to pause.

    " Really good book. Horrible what happened within it. Very well written and highly informative. Good read for anyone interested in prisons. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 2/2/2014

    " A shockingly true story of two aussies jailed for drug trafficking in Bangkok in 1978 for 12 years.Whether they deserved it or not is besides the point. The horror and the cruelty of the guards and the inmates has to be read to be believed. While telling the reader of their experiences it is distressing to read about the graphic details of many other young travellers from all over Europe who disappear in to this hell hole, some never to be seen again. A must read if you want to know and avoid the underbelly of asian jails. "

    " THIS BOOK TAKES YOU ON A EMOTIONAL JOURNEY. WARREN FELLOWS TAKES ON HIS MISSION IN A VERY DETAILED WAY.HE GIVE YOU THE GOOD AND THE BAD IN A WAY THAT LETS YOU KNOW THAT YOU SHOULD AVOID THESE SITUATIONS AND MISTAKES..THIS BOOK IS INCREDIBLE. "

    " I have to be honest, while Warren Fellows obviously had a horrific time in a Thai prison, I found it really hard to sympathise with him. I also read Forget You Had a Daughter which was brilliant by comparison. Fellows' lack of remorse and aggressive attitude in prison did him no favours, and led to a lot of his problems. While the book was well written enough, I was left not liking him. While Sandra Gregory (Forget You Had a Daughter) was also guilty, she was also very remorseful and realised how stupid she had been to smuggle drugs and that made her an altogether more likeable character. "

    " 8/10. Good book. The subtitle is very accurate. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave Mason | 1/20/2014

    " An ubbelievable journey to Hell "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ixchelle | 1/20/2014

    " Graphic but an incredible account of his life. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jake | 1/18/2014

    " Quite a depressing book to be honest. A trafficker caught in the act who pays the ultimate price. Twelve years in a hellhole. Have to feel sorry for the guy but then you have to feel sorry for the heroin addicts who were addicted to his supplied product. Ironically he becomes an addict himself during his time behind bars. "Marching Powder" by Rusty Young is certainly a better, more uplifting tale, of life in prison for a trafficker. Much funnier too and at times, almost unbelievable! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meghan | 1/16/2014

    " This was a very disturbing book. Reminds me of the show "Locked Up Abroad." It's unbelievable how they treat prisoners in other countries. I just can't understand how humans can be so inhumane. I wouldn't suggest reading this book if you have a weak stomach. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kasia | 1/13/2014

    " Life changing book! Easy read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 1/11/2014

    " This is a very hard book to read, but such an amazing story. I found this book because Midnight Express is one of my all time favorite movies (also very hard to watch). This is a story of true self induced suffering. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Babak Fakhamzadeh | 11/10/2013

    " Not so much a good book, but a horrifying tale. Written by a former drug-courier who had to spend 12 years in a Tai prison, the story simply deals with his time there and the horrors he encountered. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 11/1/2013

    " A remarkable story, throws twists into your stomach. Not a book for the everyday but well worth a read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sevim Shoduri | 5/2/2013

    " One of the most heart wrenching books I have ever read. A true story of an Aussie who was sent to jail for heroin trafficking in Thailand. How he survives the hell they call jail, is beyond me. This book will make you say a silent prayer for Warren and the other's in that jail. Must read. "
