Chopper, Paperback
2.5 out of 5 (2 ratings)


Bullied at school, and growing up dreaming of revenge, Mark "Chopper" Read determined to be the toughest in any company.

This autobiography tells how he became a crime commando who terrorized drug dealers, pimps, thieves and armed robbers on the streets and in jail - but he boasts never to have hurt an innocent member of the public.

As a streetfighter, gunman and underworld executioner, he has been earmarked for death a hundred times but has lived to tell the tale.

Worth it for one or two of the funnier anecdotes but not quite so entertaining as the film, I must admit.

Review by

Quite awful. I say 'quite' because Read does write with some humour and intelligence. However, his autobiography is trashy and poorly edited, it's too short and despite the amazing life Read has led, seems to repeat itself. And the poetry! Oh dear, such bloody awful poetry, it was practically vulgar, and without any swearing in it. The shame. Oh well, the book only took about four hours (or less) to get through.
