Plot summary: Andy Dufresne is sent to the Shawshank prison accused of killing his wife and her lover. This is the account of his life in jail and how he managed to escape.
Opinion/Comments: An awesome plot that keeps you virtually glued to the pages until you finish reading it.
I sometimes tell everyone who will listen how films made out of books are dreadful. This is definitely not the case as you can’t tell which one is better.
This novella is amazingly candid and has incredibly clever characters. The lead character, Andy Dufresne, is the most patient and cool character ever.
Personal rating: 10/10
