[PDF/EPUB] Prison Ramen BY Clifton Collins – sableyes.co.uk

REVIEW Prison Ramen

A uniue and edgy cookbook Prison Ramen takes readers behind bars with than 65 ramen recipes and stories of prison life from the inmatecooks who devised them including celebrities like Slash from Guns n’ Roses and the actor Shia LaBeouf Instant ramen is a ubiuitous food beloved by anyone looking for a cheap tasty bite including prisoners who buy it at the commissary and use it as the building block. Every single one of the short chapters is punctuated by a really rather awful recipe for ramen The ingredients hardly vary but the men must make the most of what they have food and life The chapters are written by the author by various famous people and by inmates and provide the truest picture of prison life I have ever readThe writing might be simple but there is real emotion and experience behind them These are not the stories of journalists going under cover sociologists former prison warders ex prisoners trying to make it as authors or the stories of lifers who ve discovered a literary bent and are protesting their injustice through a book I ve read all those books and I enjoy them and learn from them But they don t make me feelThis book made me feel Their lives are awful The punishment for crime is supposed to be loss of liberty not being sent to an institution that will rob them of their dignity and punish them in completely inhumane ways without any means of defending themselves In effect running a lawless society a society not subject to the laws that sent them thereSociopaths psychopaths gang members the sadly deranged the elderly the inadeuate they are all united by their desire to have some small means of self determination and something better than prison slop to eat hence Prison RamenIt s a stunningly original book A couple of hours read if that but an impression that will stay with me for a long time

Llins Jr are childhood friends one an ex con now free and living in Mexico and the other a highly successful Hollywood character actor who’s enlisted friends and celebrities to contribute their recipes and stories Forget flowery writing about precious organic ingredients these stories are a first person firsthand look inside prison life a scared straight reality to complement the offbeat recipes  . A cookbook for ramen and ways to improve on the instant noodles would have been a novelty read except this book also contains stories and anecdotes from those who spent time behind bars and those together make an interesting combination much like the recipes featured that works The title and idea behind the book caught my attention I have little interest in innovative ways to make ramen but I was intrigued about the stories The anecdotes are mainly from the 2 co authors but there are stories from celebrities including Samuel L Jackson Danny Trejo and others The stories are kept bite size no than a page only a few times maybe another page or 2 Each story contains some aspect of prison life captured candidly and compellingly I wouldn t know if they were exaggerated or made up but some of things are incredible to read about It s a whole other world in prison There are some pretty clever ways to make the most of their situation or outsmart the prison guards like transferring notes from a prison to another A good amount of work went into this book to present the stories and recipes in a way that showcases them Each story is a lesson learned and paired with a recipe that matches the story The colors font and designs all go together with the jail theme The recipes are interesting to look at in their innovativeness who d have thought to try those combinations but desperate times and limited resources really force people to be creative There are a few non ramen recipes that show some of that same innovativeness uick read

    Ramen recipes paired with stories from 'behind the wall' about prisoners having to struggle to survive Some of the stories are heartbreaking individuals finding that they must do things they never would choose to do in an atmosphere of sudden violence stealing shoes from a fellow prisoner This book would also be helpful to college students because the recipes are so simple and only reuire access to a microwave

    Chicken Soup for the Soul meets Shawshank Redemption meets Iron Chef with a forward by Samuel L Jackson Prison Ramen was an interesting mix There was heart than I anticipated The authors asked a lot of famous people to contribute their stories from behind bars andor their own Ramen recipe The Stories run the gamut interesting violent serious heartwarming appalling and humorous Each story will open your eyes to an element

    Review Prison Ramen 5 out of 5 stars You might ask what the hecks wrong with me; managing to review two books in as many days after months of nothing Well part of that is down to Prison Ramen being structured in an easy bite sized way These short stories are for the most part each an important life lesson and an eye opener as to how cheap life can really be in some of the American prisons One of the two pagers is a section from a film scr

    I actually really enjoyed the intelligent voices and stories shared throughout this book I would recommend this to Latinx people who know a little about prison life because your 'uncle' went to jail for a few Interesting way that they make ramen into different meals but it definitely sounded yucky haha
