Book Review: Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption By Stephen King


Andy Dufresne, a banker, was convicted of killing his wife and her lover and sent to Shawshank Prison. He maintains his innocence over the decades he spends at Shawshank during which time he forms a friendship with “Red”, a fellow inmate.


What a satisfying read!

I never realised the film Shawshank Redemption was based on this novel.

Very powerful story that I found to be inspiring. A man can have the determination and strength when he sets his mind to something (either gender however this novel focuses on a man) as a woman is just as powerful as a man can be.

5/5 Stars
