Rusty Young was backpacking in South America when he heard about Thomas McFadden, a convicted English drug trafficker who ran tours inside Bolivia’s notorious San Pedro prison. Intrigued, the twenty-something Australian law graduate travelled to La Paz and joined one of Thomas’s illegal tours. What followed took both men by surprise: they formed a strong and instant friendship and then became partners in an attempt to record Thomas’s experiences in the jail. Marching Powder is a shocking, darkly comic account of the life in San Pedro. In this bizarre prison, inmates are expected to buy their cells from real estate agents. Others run shops and restaurants, and hundreds of women and children live with imprisoned family members. It is a place where corrupt politicians and drug lords live in luxury apartments while the poorest prisoners are subjected to squalor and deprivation. Violence and crime are never far away, and sections of San Pedro that echo with the sound of children by day house some of Bolivia’s busiest cocaine laboratories by night. Sometimes shocking, sometimes funny, Marching Powder is an always riveting story of survival.
  • The book started well, and there were good passages in between, but I got the feeling I was hearing what we call in the South "twice told tales" - more of a tall tale than actual facts. The amounts of cash made, and some of the methods described, seemed more for an interesting story than actual reality. I don't regret reading the book, or the Kindle price, but I would not recommend it. NOTE: In the Kindle edition the pictures do not match to the captions.

  • The book is well written so it is a good page turner. Did I say that 100 pages could have been cut? It is really just a series of incidents.
    It is a morality tale however. Don't get busted for drugs in a Third World country. The dealer (hero?) does and what ensues is kinda crazy. I don't doubt that some of it is fiction but in all a fast paced read. There is way too much recreated dialogue however and the ghost writer puts a clean veneer on even the most insidious things. But still a good read. I hope the dealer has kept his nose clean. He sounds in the book like a decent enough fellow but his previous life as a dealer warranted a much longer sentence than he in fact ever served. I doubt the book will do much for Bolivia's tourist industry but considering the events that transpire that is just plain warranted.

    Books like this require you to suspend critical thinking and moral but...a good read nonetheless.

    Interesting book! It truly makes me think that I am quite happy traveling within the borders of the United States and Canada. This book
    .had my complete attention from the very start I am not completely convinced that some things the author writes about actually happened.However having never spent
    time in a Bolivian prison as an inmate or a tourist I will have to take his word for it and owe to creative license. I would definitely recommend this book to others. It was very entertaining. It was also completely different subject matter from what I normally read. I did enjoy it.

  • If there was some value in this book, I didn't find it in the 30% of it that I read. Once you get the concept of the prison, just the same thing over and over again.

  • Two thumbs up for this amazing book. This story was absolutely riveting, I honestly couldn't put this book down. Very well written and one of my favorites. Thanks to Rusty Young for bringing Thomas McFadden's harrowing experience to life so vividly. I've already passed this book off to my friend who thought I was telling her about a Novel I read as I recounted the "amazing book I just read." When I insisted (again) that it was a true-story she demanded the book. I'm sure she will also love this book as much as I have. A+! 10-Gold Stars!! Job well done!!! BRAVO!!!!

  • Good read, kind of ended quickly though with a lot of loose ends, would have been happier if there was a post prison time chapter

  • Wow can't believe there is a prison out there that allows families to live there and work there. So much corruption!!

  • A bizarre and intriguing tale. I barely could set my Kindle down. Thomas and his encounter the San Pedro prison makes for a captivating story.
