    I recently did a ghost tour of The Missouri State Penitentiary It was such an eerie feeling being inside those old stone walls and imagining all of the history staining and seeping inside of those structures While nothing overtly scary happened there was a certain heaviness in the air that made me hyper aware of my surroundings and inspired goosebumps The most memorable part of the tour took place in the very dungeon where James Firebug Johnson spent 18 years in complete darkness The air was so thick it was suffocating and the darkness so complete that calling it black does not uite do it justice I can't imagine spending even an hour down there When our tour guide mentioned that Firebug Johnson wrote a book about his lengthy confinement in the dungeon after setting a fire in an attempt to escape I knew I had to read it I was expecting something a little profound than what I found in Buried Alive Eighteen Years in the Missouri State Penitentiary The style of the writing zero paragraphs or indentations just page after page of sentence after sentence mimics the tone of the author's voice kind of dry and with very little description or appeal to the senses If you want to know what it was like to be imprisoned at MSP 150 years ago take a tour and let your imagination work You'll gain so much from that than this book ☆☆
