    About the Author
    Condemned for a murder he had not committed, Henri Charriere (nicknamed 'Papillon') was sent to the penal colony of French Guiana. Forty-two days after his arrival he made his first break, travelling a thousand gruelling miles in an open boat. Recaptured, he suffered a solitary confinement and was sent eventually to Devil's Island, a hell-hole of disease and brutality. No one had ever escaped from this notorious prison no one until 'Papillon' took to the shark infested sea supported only by a makeshift coconut-sack raft. In thirteen years he made nine daring escapes, living through many fantastic adventures while on the run including a sojourn with South American Indians whose women 'Papillon' found welcomely free of European restraints

    An Awesome Read for any genre

    A Novel Autobiography of Henri "Papillon" Charriere. A self motivation for any genre.. The book will teach you that miracles do happen if you never give up try. Try, Try, and Try... One day you will be honored with the glory of success and self realization.
    If you believe this is all true (as it's supposed to be) then it's surely one of the best and most exciting real life stories of all time. Even if you don't believe it (and some of the bits seemed to have been exaggerated) it's still one...

    INSPIRING

    Henri Charierre's story is truly amazing. It is in my opinion the greatest prison break book written to date. The language is raw and the translator has tried his best not to make changes from the original book which was written in French.

    This is a great read and I recommend it to everyone who likes to read!

    What a read that was!

    This was my first buy on Flipkart and boy did they amaze me! The name stands for swift delivery and that of top notch. Their packaging was so neat that i didnt feel i should be ripping the package apart to read the book! Now talking about the book, any suspense story is best left unfolded, and hence let me not spoil the show to you voracious readers out there by spilling the beans about the story but mark my words..YOU ARE GONNA LOVE IT

    An Epic tale of a man's never ending desire for freedom......

    In life we face a lot of challenges... If we have the will that matters we will overcome it no matter the time it might take , no matter the additional hardships that will bring with it...

    One has 2 simple choices when a difficult situation in life arises. Surrender and suffer , blaming it on your fate OR face it come what may never giving up...

    Papillon made the second choice and life rewarded him fairly... This book sends out a message to everyone through this book i.e. to never stop beli...
