    1. When Ron Decker is convicted of selling narcotics, he winds up in San Quentin. Earl Copen, a long-time resident, takes him under his wing. As friendship buds between the men, can Ron stay alive long enough to get paroled?Prison life has always held a strange fascination for me. By most accounts, The Animal Factory is one of the better prison novels.Written during one of his prison stints, Edward Bunker crafts a tale of two men trying to get by in San Quentin. Not surprisingly, it carries an air [...]


    2. Eddie Bunker's thinly veiled autobiographical novel of his time in prison is a revelation of terse, authentic feeling, observational prose; a prison novel that doesn't glamourise its setting or apologise for its violence, he takes the detached yet constantly on guard attitude of the long serving criminal and infuses an entire novel with it forcing the reader to constantly suspect the worst. As such it's not an easy read, you find your shoulders tensing just waiting for an unnoticed shiv to come [...]


    3. Note to self, I won't be taken alive, stay out of prison.Written in '77 it was re-released in the last few years. A compelling and terrifying read.Middle-class drug dealer gets sent to San Quentin where he befriends hard con Earl.Essentially a story of how prison makes criminals hardened just so that they cansurvive. The story seems a bit dated and familiar, but that's probably because there havebeen many books, movies etc that have followed its footsteps.


    4. Di Edward Bunker avevo sempre sentito parlar bene; anzi: benissimo. Lo avevo visto come attore in qualche film, tra i quali su tutti spiccava il suo Mr. Blue in "Resevoir Dogs" di Tarantino, anche lui grande ammiratore dello scrittore, che non solo utilizzò per dar volto al suo personaggio, ma anche come consulente in tema di rapine, come fece poi pure Michael Mann per il suo capolavoro "Heat". Perché? perché Bunker nasce, o meglio è stato costretto a nascere dalle intemperie dell'esistenza, [...]



    5. Bunker non scrive romanzi ambientati in carcere, nei suoi libri il protagonista È il carcere. Se lo scopo della letteratura è fornire esperienze altrimenti irraggiungibili al lettore Animal Factory è un maledettissimo capolavoro; la storia di Ron e Earl vi trscinerà per davvero dietro le sbarre.


    6. His first published novel. A bleak tale of life inside a maximum security prison. It's not the Shawshank Redemption, it's the real deal.


    7. La prigione, fabbrica di bestie.Dove tutti possono uccidere e venire uccisi.Alcuni detenuti vorrebbero scapparne, altri sono lì per reati minori ed aspettano la libertà vigilata, per altri ancora è casa: un luogo in cui la struttura sociale è plasmata da una gerarchia misantropica ed ostile verso tutto ciò che è diverso da se stessi, o giù di lì.Guerre razziali, solidarietà tra membri del clan, omofobia, repressione, rabbia.Bel libro, scritto da un ex detenuto, più che un romanzo è un [...]


    8. "La fábrica de animales" de Edward Bunker. Estamos ante el segundo libro que escribió el conocido Mr Blue de la archiconocida "Reservoir Dogs" de Tarantino tras el espléndido debut "No hay bestia tan ferorz". En este caso se despachó con una historia encuadrada en ese subgénero tan trillado como es la literatura carcelaria. En este caso, claro, tenemos motivos para disfrutar más de esta novela que otras del mismo tipo. En primer lugar tenemos una historia real como la vida misma, según la [...]


    9. This was the first book of his that I've read, and Bunker's style put me off slightly, in the beginning -- he seemed to be reaching in a pedantic way that called attention to the language, and thus got in the way of the plot. Good thing the plot steamrolls like a fucking 18-wheeler barreling down a mountain without jack brakes. The brutal imagery and complex tension between the main characters more than makes up for the occasional awkward construction here and there. Highly recommended for fans [...]


    10. Se in Come una bestia feroce Bunker ci descrive il reinserimento di un ex-detenuto nella società civile, in Animal Factory l'esame si concentra, specularmente, sull'inserimento di un civile nella società criminale di un carcere.In entrambi i casi l'esperienza diretta dell'autore rende la narrazione potente e incisiva.


    11. The book is much better than the movie; you get a much better idea of why Ron and Earl strike up a friendship, and much greater awareness of why they Earl would risk it all to try a break out after so many years of comfortable existence in jail. Their dynamic is still really good – that awkward tension between Earl’s paternal and yet sexual desire for Ron, and Ron’s platonic love for Earl.


    12. I very rarely give five-star reviews. This book deserves it: dark, gritty, true; it has it all.The author's personal experience gives him the edge, but it's his style of writing that takes that edge and goes so much further. Recommend.


    13. "Fuck rehabilitation's a full-time job to stay alive." My background with prison books is small it includes Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption and then the Green Mile. This books is in a different universe compared to those. It struck me as a plain Jane novel nothing really spectacular about it or nothing to write home about. Did I like it? Yeah, it was okay it served its purpose of entertaining me. I don't think I liked any of the characters at all. It really reminded me of Last Exit to Bro [...]


    14. Nel carcere di San Quintino suonò Johnny Cash (sì, come a Folsom), e i Metallica hanno girato un video molto meno famoso. Mi piacciono le storie di carcere, e questa è un'ottima storia. Non ci sono né i Metallica né Johnny Cash, perciò se siete di quelli che in un romanzo cercano anche l'intrattenimento musicale è meglio che vi rivolgiate altrove.


    15. Un coup de poing dans l'estomac !!Ou comment la prison peut transformer un petit délinquant en un criminel lequel devient le protégé d'un vieux de la vielle rompu à la survie en taule.Une plongée dans l'univers carcéral où se côtoient clans raciaux, dégénérés sexuels, et hommes ayant perdu toute humanité.




    16. Within the first ten pages of this book I knew that Ed Bunker had himself spent time in prison. No one could write such bold realistic scenes about that environment unless they have been there. I was not a Born Again believer at the time, so honestly I enjoyed reading this book. Jails and prisons are animal factory's. I prefer to call them human warehouses where violence and hate is the only form of communication that is constant and understood. This book was made into a movie I believe, and Dus [...]


    17. This was ex-con Bunker's second novel, and to some extent his inexperience shows: there is unnecessary repetition, and the narrative is episodic. Since he actually did time in San Quentin one assumes the setting and action are fairly authentic, but there is an odd streak of romanticism running through it all. Do cons really sit in the Yard and read Teillard de Chardin? Do they really quote Milton and pass around copies of Dostoevsky? It's certainly a change from the countless lurid Hollywood mov [...]


    18. Se podría decir, según he terminado este libro y otro leído hace pocas semanas ("En el patio") que las cárceles californianas en los años 60-70 han dado muchísimo a la literatura. Y es que en todo preso hay un escritor en potencia, y en San Quintín o Folsom explotó el fenómeno.Como en la novela ya mencionada, Edward Bunker, que fue recluso, aprovecha para contar una historia de presidios, en la que se mueven numerosos personajes (intuyo que basados en la realidad, por no decir copiados) [...]


    19. My first crack at Edward Bunker was a very rewarding one. I know some folks consider him a seminal crime writer but I had no real expectations walking into this. Bunker's a great story teller. His language is mostly simple but he certainly fancies himself a wordsmith at times. Ron Decker is a white collar drug dealer who winds up being convicted and sent to San Quentin, where he meets a variety of characters, but the story revolves around his relationship with Earl Copen, a seasoned and hardened [...]


    20. This is a prison story, and sort of a love story, without too many of the details a straight male reader might hope to skip in a prison love story. A young, ‘pretty’ drug dealer is busted and is befriended by a wise old con who does his best to look out for him during their mutual stint in San Quentin. There is great insight into the paranoia, tension, and inside dealings that go on in the various levels of prison life - from the sweetest livin’ cell blocks to the hole.And of course, after [...]


    21. 26.03.2010Questo libro mi sta uccidendo 02.04.2010Dopo aver saputo che l'autore ha vissuto davvero tra le mura di celle e in mezzo a centinaia di menti pericolose come quelle che si formano e prendono vita tra quelle pareti, mi sono interessata di più alla storia, che non è altro che uno squarcio di vita all'interno di un carcere americano. A pensare che tutta quella cattiveria esiste davvero ed è compressa in cosi poco spazio, c'è da avere paura. Questa mi fa sorgere una domanda: ma è davv [...]


    22. I was really unsure on this book when it first began. I found it got off to quit a slow start. However once in San Quentin the drama really picked up and the fascinating nature of prison life in the most scariest place imaginable drew me in. This is all written from first hand knowledge and the violence and despair was extreme. The title Animal Factory was apt and showed me that that is exactly what San Quentin was (still is?) a place that can take a minor criminal and turn him into a violent an [...]


    23. If Erin Brockovich wasn't became so mainstream in Hollywood, I can see the studio writing a screenplay for "Animal Factory" and Julia Roberts being the lead activist taking charge. The material that is presented is good, but after a while, it became too much, where I lost interest in listening another tragic stories about water pollution, cancer, animal waste, chicken farms, pig farms, and especially the court system and politics. The book looses its focal point when it goes on and on with the W [...]


    24. J'avais vu le le film il y a de cela plusieurs années avec un bon souvenir et je connaissais Edward Bunker pour Aucune bête aussi féroce que j'avais beaucoup aimé. Dans ce dernier, la vie post-carcérale semble une détention en soi où la réinsertion sociale est impossible puisque provoquant la déchéance sociale. Ici, on semble tomber en Enfer où sourire est impensable, refuser la ségrégation raciale vaut la mort/le viol et toute justice est simulacre et donc synonyme d'espoirs vains [...]


    25. Un piccolo grande romanzo, che con il suo stile asciutto e privo di abbellimenti, riesce a calare il lettore nell'incubo della vita carceraria più dura e crudele. Si apre così ai nostri occhi la visione su una sorta di mondo parallelo, con le sue gerarchie, le sue scale di valori e le sue rigidissime leggi da rispettare ad ogni costo, totalmente "altro" e avulso dalla vita che scorre ignara e indifferente all'esterno. Ma anche in un clima tanto feroce e bestiale, possono nascere sentimenti pos [...]

    27. Prison for dummiesNel caso abbiate bisogno di un manuale sul comportamento in carcere, questo libro fa per voi: istruzioni step by step, cosa fare in caso di e tante altre belle tips per il perfetto carcerato. Insomma, troppo didattico!!! Dove è finito il Bunker che ho tanto amato con Cane mangia cane e Come una bestia feroce? Il finale recupera un pò la noia di una lettura senza sussulti."Tutto quello che un uomo ha in prigione è la reputazione con i compagni"" Tutti invecchiano e muoiono, s [...]
