    1. This book really grabbed me I just intended to leaf through the pages but found myself unable to put it down, to coin a cliche, and read it straight through Sabine Heinlein follows two years in the lives of three people who were convicted of murder, spent decades behind bars and just got released from prison into a world they no longer recognize You get to see her subjects as human beings, not monsters, although she doesn t mince words about their crimes She also talks a great deal about the ree [...]

    2. In Among Murderers, Heinlein follows three convicted murders in the years immediately after their release The blurb describes it as What is it like for a convicted murderer who has spent decades behind bars to suddenly find himself released into a world he barely recognizes What is it like to start over from nothing To answer these questions Sabine Heinlein followed the everyday lives and emotional struggles of Angel Ramos and his friends Bruce and Adam three men convicted of some of society s m [...]

    3. This heartfelt book addresses the needs of released inmates in their struggle to survive among a populous that so easily discards them into the system With the lack of empathy and humanity in America, the label of felon will loom over these people s heads for a lifetime, oftentimes pushing them further into the system if released back into society This book sheds an eye opening light onto a broken system that desperately needs public awareness and support When you ve killed someone, you ve done [...]

    4. A grim but occasionally hopeful portrait of the post release lives and challenges of three very different murders who each spent decades in prison Especially sobering in light of the huge numbers 700,000 plus annually of long serving felons being released with few living skills to an unwelcoming society.

    5. Excellent Great narrative that examines those things that most of us are too uncomfortable to think deeply about Read this one if you know an ex convict or are just curious about the criminal justice system in America.

    6. Not bad, although it put too much interest on the sexual lives of the rehabilitated inmates I was expecting a little bit of the adaptation experience, but I am sure that what this book entails is just right.

    7. Follows three murders who are released from prison after serving 20 years as they try to adjust to every day life in NYC Pretty interesting subject matter but didn t care for the writing much.
