One thought on “Zone 22

  1. Sifra (brilliant bookshelf)

    Read this review at Brilliant BookshelfThe thing about Zone 22 is that it isn t a great book, but it does tell a very interesting and horrifying story It is a true story about a British man who ends up in a gulag like camp in Russia.The first thing that came up in my mind while reading was not a pretty one Tig Hague got arrested at Moskou airport because he forgot he still had a little bit of marijuana in his jeans pocket My first thought He s an incredible idiot Practically everyone knows how s [...]

  2. Morgan Oats

    The English Prisoner is not a literary masterpiece it s not an exciting narrative with compelling protagonists What it is, is a compelling true story about the corrupt Russian prison system.I was given this book while traveling from another traveler I didn t have another book at the time so I thought I d pass my time with it My first impressions were not very great the author main character essentially drove himself into a shitty situation by doing something illegal and tried to convince the aut [...]

    wow this was a terrible ordeal for this poor guy to go through very difficult to read sometimes without wanting to vomit but nevertheless it was well written and i recommend this to anyone who is planning to travel to Russia, just be careful

    De jonge hij was toen pas 20 Tig Hague reist voor zijn werk regelmatig naar Rusland Hij werkt bij een Engelse bank en doet in Rusland zaken Op een dag in 2003 gaat het mis Tig is nogal gammel van de lange vlucht en bovendien heeft hij een kater na een feestje Op het vliegveld merkt hij plotseling dat de douane extra belangstelling heeft voor zijn bagage De douanebeambte doet nog een poging om Tig over te halen hem flink wat geld toe te stoppen, zodat hij zo door kan lopen, maar Tig heeft het nie [...]

  5. Sonny

    It has taken me four years to finish this book I have no idea how Tig Hague managed to survive in the shittiest hell hole on earth, stuck in a forgotten prison in the middle of Siberia for a crime so trivial as to be mind boggling.Much like events themselves, the book needs to be approached with a determination to get through it Hague s frustration and madness boils on each page as he takes you on a journey into utter despair, each day threatening to crush the life out of him as he confronts the [...]

  6. Benjamin Stahl

    When I purchased this book, I was not aware that it was a true story However, this only made it all the interesting and unsettling The crap that Tig Hague goes through after being arrested in Moscow for possession of marijuana is as shocking as it is entertaining, and even hilarious I was struck by how funny this story is, even though it details the terrible hardships he had to face under the mercy virtually non existent of the Russian prison guards Equally interesting, and somewhat moving, is [...]

  7. Greenockian

    Honestly the best book I ve ever bought from Poundland As well as that however I would say that I started off not feeling any real sympathy at all for the author who ends up in deep trouble at Moscow airport Initially he comes across as a real smart arse chinless wonder but thanks to the character forming opportunities offered to him by the Russian penal system it ends up being impossible not to wish him good fortune and the earliest possible chance to get out of his prison deep in the middle of [...]

    I borrowed this book from my Dad to read because I saw it in his shelf and thought it sounded interesting, I was right The first time I read this book I was young and probably did not understand everything and so when I reread it I understood a lot of what was happening Wow Definitely worth reading, it is about the terrible experiences a man faced when imprisoned in Russia The ordeals he faced would change him forever.

  9. Matt

    Great book a real page turner and insight into the corrupt nature of the Russian legal system I don t know if I feel sorry for him or not taking drugs no matter how much into Russia is illegal Was it a harsh sentence yes should he have taken the drugs there no He got caught and jailed Having said that the treatment he had was harsh in the zone long hours of manual labour illness boredom and the perverse pleasure the guards got from making you suffer both mentally and physically

  10. Niels Lodewijk

    Easy non ficitonal read about Russion prisons Story about a Brittish business man taken to prison in Siberia I will definetely check my pockets and back when I m in Russia next autumn The book is just one of these inside prison books, if you re interested in the topic I would recommend it, it s wellwritten.

  11. Shraddha Tapas

    A non fiction about how destiny can play bad and get a simple ordinary British national get caught up in Russia s prisonThis is a story of his struggle to prove himself innocent and return to his home landThe description of corrupted Russian officials,the inhuman treatment given to prisoners is heart touching

  12. Harry Warren

    My family the warrens actually sent over a lot of money to help Tig but the money was stolen by the lawyer The names are in the back of the book for thanks I really liked this book and found it very interesting It was definitely a page tuner for me

  13. Garth

    A vivid account of a young Brit s experience of the Russian justice and penal system today While clearly appalling in modern terms, the author s experiences almost pale into insignificance in the shadow of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn s description of the Stalin era Gulag Archipelago.

  14. Megs

    The book itself was average however this poor guy I m so sad for him, what an experience to have to live through
