Underdog: The Pelican Bay Hunger Strike Book Review

160

The California Prison System houses a mixture of Mexican cartel members, Mexican mafia, Bloods, Crips, and thousands of other street gangs fighting for control and the author turns this story into a pulp thriller of true crime.

‘Underdog’ is a great insight into what was going on in Pelican Bay Prison, especially during the hunger strike. It was very upsetting to see how they were treated. I mean it was completely out of control and I think Glenn did a great job comparing it to how dogs are mistreated and caged up.

‘Underdog’ is well written and very informative. It alsoholds your attention very well because it is very intriguing and written brilliantly.

Glenn knows what he’s talking about from first-hand experience and it shows in his writing. There is a certain flair in the writing of a book if the writer truly experiences it. I really enjoyed this book and I can’t wait to read more from Glenn Langohr and see what other stories he has to tell!
