I told this guy Neil about this and he was shocked that my family knew this guy. He had read the book and loved it so much. So as a gift, he gave me a copy of the book. This b My mother knew Papillon and another one of the characters in the book Francoise. This book was written in my uncle's other restaurant Il Pappagallo back in the day. What a great story!!!

View all 3 comments. What a story! Papillon is an autobiographical novel about a man who in was charged with killing someone of course, the author claims he was innocent and he was sentenced to a life of hard labor at a penal colony in French Guiana. After many weeks of planning, he managed to escape on a raft and sailed hundreds of miles to Colombia.

He spent several months living happily in a fishing village -- with not one but two wives! He tried many other escape attempts, but it wasn't until that he managed to escape again by sea, floating away on a sack of coconuts. Yes, a sack of coconuts. Papillon, a nickname referencing the French word for butterfly, is a wonderful storyteller and the book is filled with his adventures. I can understand why this book was a huge bestseller when it was published in ; it is compulsively readable and the stories are memorable.

Like any great storyteller, the author comes across as so clever and heroic that you wonder how much is exaggerated, but you also don't care because you're enjoying it too much.

I've seen in other review there is some question in the authenticity, and I did think that some of Papillon's adventures were over-the-top, especially making it so far in the sea on coconuts! I do think some of the book is a bit repetitive and a bit long but overall I really enjoyed it. Now I really have to watch the movie I want to see the original and then the remake.

I read the translator's introduction last night and I'm looking forward to reading a big chunk of it tonight. To be continued I like to midnight-snack while I do my nightly reading and in a number of places over the last hundred pages I found myself rage-eating my chips - just shovelling them in, too angry with the injustice of Henri's situation to enjoy them.

Usually I eat them slowly, one or two per page, savouring them so that I don't accidentally eat a whole bag in one night, something which I could easily have done while reading this book last night.

He talks about a man who hands him a cup of coffee and then exclaims "Oh, where's my finger gone? Henri finds it stuck to the outside of his cup and hands it back to him. According to Wikipedia this sequence is impossible, leprosy, despite all the old wives' tales, does not lead to body parts falling off here, there and everywhere.

This next passage is taken straight from Wikipedia's page on leprosy "Initially, infections are without symptoms and typically remain this way for 5 to as long as 20 years. Symptoms that develop include granulomas loosely described as 'a small nodule' of the nerves, respiratory tract, skin, and eyes. This may result in a lack of ability to feel pain and thus loss of parts of extremities due to repeated injuries. Weakness and poor eyesight may also be present. To reiterate, the loss of body parts happens because of repeated injuries to these body parts, which have become numbed due to granulomas of the nerves.

There is no "Oh, my finger just fell off. If untreated, leprosy can progress and cause permanent damage to the skin, nerves, limbs, and eyes.

Contrary to folklore, leprosy does not cause body parts to fall off, although they can become numb or diseased as a result of secondary infections; these occur as a result of the body's defences being compromised by the primary disease. Secondary infections, in turn, can result in tissue loss causing fingers and toes to become shortened and deformed, as cartilage is absorbed into the body.

That his main motive for writing this tale of injustice wasn't to make a pile of cash, but to let the world know of what he went through. You had everything you needed, not one but two loving wives both pregnant with your child not a comment on the fact that one of the wives was not much more than 12, or that the two girls were sisters, just a comment on what he had and what he left behind ; you had a community who accepted and revered you.

You had an idyllic island paradise life, what more could you want? Deciding not to go back for revenge doesn't make you weak, it just means you've found something more important, something worth living for, which you didn't have when you first visualised getting your revenge on all the people who were involved in your imprisonment. Now look what's happened, you've been recaptured and as you pointed out that mistake will cost you seven years of your life.

Imagine how your life could have gone if you had just stayed with Lali and Zoraima. There are so many words per page, with so few paragraphs that it's really slowing down my normal reading speed.

Normally, when I'm enjoying a book as much as I'm enjoying this one I look down and am amazed to have read 50 pages in half an hour, with this book I look down and find I've only read 10 pages. Like I said, I'm enjoying the story, but I don't want to be reading it for the rest of my life, I do have other books that I want to get to that I may well enjoy even more than this plus library due dates are looming.

First it turns out that GR has been fudging the page count, it's not as I was originally led to believe it's followed by numerous pages of 'extras' including an 'exclusive essay by Howard Marks'.

I think I'm pleased that I've only got pages to go instead of as I'm feeling the pressure from my other books' library due dates and this really is taking a long while to read. The blurb on the back of my book reads as follows: Recaptured, his spirit remained untamed - in thirteen years he made nine amazingly daring escapes , including one from the notorious Devil's Island.

Nine amazingly daring escapes What the blurb really means is that he attempts to escape nine times, he only succeeds twice, the first attempt when he managed to stay out for 11 months and the final, which I'm currently in the middle of. Learning that a book like this is pretty much just a well-imagined adventure story in the vein of Robinson Crusoe or Treasure Island takes a bit of the shine off story.

It's no longer as fantastically amazing because it's not real. I went into the reading of this book believing that it was a true story and I am certainly disappointed to come to the conclusion that there's very little truth to be found anywhere in the book.

It's moving to the historical fiction shelf. View all 6 comments. So fascinating, haunting; you feel the pain and ecstasy. No escape till the last page, you sail along all 'Cavale' with them. Even though the author is silent all throughout the novel, on the plot of his conviction for murder in France except by saying that he was innocent, we really feel that he was really innocent.

This, the author succeeds to prove through various instances in the novel. We also feel many occasions unbelievable where we see he is recognized instantly, and many show sympathy to So fascinating, haunting; you feel the pain and ecstasy. Happy reading.

I have read that there is a debate as to how much of the story is Charriere's own experiences but nevertheless it makes a great read.

Even though some of the adventures do take a lot of believing he obviously lived an extraordinary life and this book is well worth reading. Exciting, but wow, so many failed attempts. I figure if Papillon lived through 14 years of horror, the least I can do is read his pages of escapes. He's certainly an example of "do not go gentle. I wanted to read this book so badly - I was in 7th grade, my sister wanted to take drivers education. She did not want to ride her bike alone, so she bribed me.

Allowing me to read on the church steps while I waited for her lesson to be over. I really liked it. The descriptions were so vivid, the story so gripping. I do not know where my sister got the book, I seriously doubt she had read it. OMG Epiphany! It was my dad's book! He gave it to her to bribe me with so sh I wanted to read this book so badly - I was in 7th grade, my sister wanted to take drivers education. Imagine being.. Imprisoned to rot for a crime you had not committed.

Framed by the law and frustrated by such injustice. Fueled by vengeance with an undying hope of freedom. An experience never to be forgotten.

Yes, a sack of coconuts. Papillon, a nickname referencing the French word for butterfly, is a wonderful storyteller and the book is filled with his adventures. I can understand why this book was a huge bestseller when it was published in ; it is compulsively readable and the stories are memorable. Like any great storyteller, the author comes across as so clever and heroic that you wonder how much is exaggerated, but you also don't care because you're enjoying it too much.

Since then, it has become a treasured classic -- the gripping, shocking, ultimately uplifting odyssey of an innocent man who would not be defeated. Lordy, how much this reminds me of my youth and how convinced at one point that this was a mirror of the Dreyfus Affair. Mar 27, Aaron Arnold rated it it was amazing Shelves: I think my favorite part, out of a lot of great parts, was Papillon's moment of agonizing choice about a third of the way in, between staying in his beautiful Venezuelan paradise with his two new-found native wives, and returning to seek "vengeance" on what he thinks is the unjust society that shipped him halfway across the world to rot in a jungle charnel house.

He idiotically chooses to leave this blissful native paradise, but even when I was cursing him for being a fool I thought his reflections on the differences between the "civilized" European culture who'd condemned him and the indigenous cultures who'd adopted him were well-written and interesting in the light of the complicated relationship Western countries have had with their colonies. The French, while not exactly angels, were often more willing than their neighbors the Spanish and the British to go native and peacefully blend into the various cultures who inhabited their colonies.

While I think he overdid the Noble Savage trope a little bit, in terms of the story it makes the protagonist the perfect lone wolf badass who's as at home charming the well-to-do wives of the colonial administrators as he is getting laid with the daughters of whatever tribal chieftains he runs into.

Another one of my favorite parts was his first experience in solitary at Devil's Island - I've read other books with prison scenes in them, but his description of the soul-crushing loneliness it engenders is one of the best, and was surely the prototype for countless others. And of course all his various escape attempts are amazing too, but every part of the book can't be your favorite, that's like having dessert for every meal, something only a child would do.

This book hit me squarely on that kind of undiluted childish pleasure level. Now to go track down the movie! View 2 comments.

This book is incredible. If you liked Shawshank, you'll love Papillon. Henri Charrier, called Papillon for the butterfly tattoo on his chest, was convicted in Paris in for a murder he did not convict and was shipped off to French Guiana. It takes years and several failed attempts for Papillion to escape in this nail-biting story of amazin This book is incredible.

It takes years and several failed attempts for Papillion to escape in this nail-biting story of amazing courage. The book has it all, sex for a while Papillion has two Indian wives who are sisters , drugs and a little metaphorical rock and roll. I can't recommend it enough.

Charriere wrote his autobiography in , twenty years after he escaped. View all 6 comments. From there, everyone who disagreed with him in some way was evil and the rest of the world always seemed eager to help him escape. Too black and white for my taste. You might very well enjoy this book as a work of fiction, but it was just not for me. View all 7 comments. Its my favorite book till date. One word for it - WOW.. Its just amazing and the way the author has described the life of a man in the prisons is amazing.

Its wonderful how he tells this man's story spanning so many years. I saw this movie as a kid..

I must be very young then maybe class 5 or younger.. Papillon means butterfly and it symbolises the protagonists' desire to get free from the clutches of jail. The vivi Its my favorite book till date.

The vivid description is just too good to miss and the book too good to be put down. I also like it because I am great fan of escape stories, prison accounts, prisoner of war and other war stories.

Recaptured, his spirit remained untamed - in thirteen years he made nine amazingly daring escapes , including one from the notorious Devil's Island.

An immediate sensation upon its publication, Papillon is one of the greatest adventure stories ever told, a true tale of courage, resilience and an unbreakable will.

Aug 27, Robert rated it it was ok.

Papillon was an enjoyable enough summer read; it was just a little hard to suspend my disbelief at times for a supposedly nonfiction endeavor. I was unsurprised to see in my post-reading research that large portions the story were disputed and that several of Charriere's fellow inmates have claimed over the years that he incorporated the experiences of other would-be escapees and presented them as his own story. I guess this book was a precursor of sorts to A Million Little Pieces in that both a Papillon was an enjoyable enough summer read; it was just a little hard to suspend my disbelief at times for a supposedly nonfiction endeavor.
