Orange is the new black by Piper Kerman

A nice little read, recommended to me by a work friend. When I began reading the book I hadn’t yet seen any of the TV episodes, so was unaffected by the warping of story line or characters.

It was interesting, very factual. Not much embellishment, so it was a strain to read at times simply because there were several rather drawn out episodes to her prison life. But one thing that remained constant was her complete devotion to Larry, which was nice I suppose.

Once I was almost complete, I then began watching the episodes. It frustrated me at first as the series is very little like the book but then……it had to be made exciting I guess?

I think, and I rarely say this, watch the TV version over the book.
