I read this book in the mid 70 s as a teenager Then I read it again And then a little while later I saw the film The three events have subseuently blended into one and I certainly now have difficulty differentiating the book from the film But that s no big deal as I know the film followed the written narrative pretty closely It s a true story of one man s battle against injustice and the terrible personal conseuences that transpiredIt left a big impression on me It was a big story A huge adventure which I believed in entirely though I now know some doubt has subseuently been levelled at the detail It was also the largest book I d taken on at this point by far Not only did it convince me of the power of a story it also demonstrated to me that I could be transfixed by a tome so large it seemed impossible it would hold my interest long enough for me to finish it When I look back to early adult books I ve read it s this one that stands out read as I laid on my bed with a Rod Stewart cassette Atlantic Crossing playing in the backgroundWhen the film was released I know I doubted it could match the power of the book but in my memory it came close I loved Hoffman and Mcueen in the lead roles and the scenes of solitary confinement seemed a perfect reflection of what I d conjured up in my mindI m not sure if I ll ever re visit this tale of a Frenchman shipped off to a prison in French Guiana for a crime he claimed he didn t commit as I wouldn t want to be disappointed by a second re read I think I ll just continue to treasure the untainted memory of my first memorable reading experience

I don t care if this book wasn t a 100% factual honest to God documentary account of what actually happened to this guy it was a magnificent adventure novel full of blood and drama and action From what I can tell Charri re cobbled the narrative out of his own experiences as a prisoner in the pitiless camps of 1930s French Guyana plus the stories of a few camp mates plus his own dramatic license emerging with a masterpiece There were many moments where the story is less than totally plausible if you created a drinking game where you took a shot each time a beautiful woman befriended him out of the blue or people started doing favors for him for no reason or an important official preposterously took him into their trust you would be dead drunk inside of three chapters and yet Charri re crafted a completely absorbing tropical world of hardened criminals miserable wretches forbidding prisons thrilling escapes and all around awesome displays of survivalI think my favorite part out of a lot of great parts was Papillon s moment of agonizing choice about a third of the way in between staying in his beautiful Venezuelan paradise with his two new found native wives and returning to seek vengeance on what he thinks is the unjust society that shipped him halfway across the world to rot in a jungle charnel house He idiotically chooses to leave this blissful native paradise but even when I was cursing him for being a fool I thought his reflections on the differences between the civilized European culture who d condemned him and the indigenous cultures who d adopted him were well written and interesting in the light of the complicated relationship Western countries have had with their colonies The French while not exactly angels were often willing than their neighbors the Spanish and the British to go native and peacefully blend into the various cultures who inhabited their coloniesWhile I think he overdid the Noble Savage trope a little bit in terms of the story it makes the protagonist the perfect lone wolf badass who s as at home charming the well to do wives of the colonial administrators as he is getting laid with the daughters of whatever tribal chieftains he runs into Another one of my favorite parts was his first experience in solitary at Devil s Island I ve read other books with prison scenes in them but his description of the soul crushing loneliness it engenders is one of the best and was surely the prototype for countless others And of course all his various escape attempts are amazing too but every part of the book can t be your favorite that s like having dessert for every meal something only a child would do This book hit me suarely on that kind of undiluted childish pleasure level I wish I d read it when I was twelve it would have been the perfect companion to The Count of Monte Cristo and Robinson Crusoe Now to go track down the movie
