    An entertaining memoir.

    While markedly different than the Netflix series that this memoir inspired, Orange is the New Black is an entertaining read that delves into the gritty reality of prison life, and the prison system. If you're a fan of the TV series, this book provides an interesting look at the real life prisoners that inspired the characters of the show, and a little extra detail on some of the scenes you've seen on the show. Overall, Kerman's writing is engaging, accessible, insightful, and just plain interesting.

    Divorce your mind from tv...

    Not the TV series in any way other than the title, yet entertaining and thought provoking. A quick and good read.

    Good but incomplete

    This is probably the first time I will say this, but the TV show is better then the book. I understand that the book is closer to the truth and that the TV show is different to draw in audience. But I think what really makes the difference is the fact that there should have been an extra chapter. One where you get to find a little bit more about the other characters and what happened to them, like pop(red), big boo, yoga Janet or even pensatucky.
