    I found this book truly inspirational and gripping I read it in 2 nights There is some banter about whether or not it is true I'm still not decided on what I think about this debate What I do know from having lived in Russia for a number of years and having toured an obscure KGB prison in Lithuania 3 times that the author's description of his torture in Minsk and in Moscow were especially haunting From what I saw in Vilnius he was actuall

    A memoir must be an unrewarding thing to write today So many have been discredited as either full of untruths or completely fabricated Jerzy Kosinski's Painted Bird Carlos Casteneda's The Teaching of Don Juan than a few of Oprah publicized books and now a revelation for me The Long Walk a book that has sold half a million copies since it was first published in 1956 I started to get suspicious about 13 of the way through this book There wer

    Amazing true account of courage and determination 45 starsThis group of men escaped from a Siberian prison camp in 1941 and spent a year making their way to safety in India They crossed very harsh terrain including the Gobi Desert and the Himalayas Sadly not all of them survived the journey Most interesting were the locals they met along the way especially the Mongolians and Tibetans Very well edited and not too long Reads like a novel
