Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Paperback Verified Purchase. There are many reasons to read and enjoy Papillion. He was wrongfully convicted, by his own account. He was harshly punished and sent to a 'hell on earth. His intense and sometimes tender feelings for everyone who suffers in this world are laid bare for all of us to share. He tells us more than once about the heartfelt feelings he has for the kind and generous people who help him along the way.
In Banco he tries that kind of thing again only now he's free. He's not escaping a life of prison and crime, he's supposed to be rehabilitated and living a clean life. He get's bored and decides to rob a bank with some old convict friends. What happened to those kind and lovely people who's money he's stealing? What happened to going straight and looking back at a life of crime knowing it's all in the past?
Why does he betray the trust they have given him while he lives an honest life among them? It all falls apart if any of his earlier words are to be believed. He's no longer funny or just a hitchhiker along for the ride, he's actively trying to rob a bank. We're no longer dealing with a man who's past is the problem but someone who will steal and rob the moment our backs are turned.
Trust and loyalty placed with him is misplaced. The number of stories Charrier 'borrowed' from to write his first book can be overlooked in that they are all tales of escape and did happen to someone much like Papillion. But he can no longer write with the voice of a man repentant and searching for a better life while he picks our pockets because he's bored and wants more than his share of an honest life.
Banco: The Further Adventures of Papillon by Henri Charrière
Oh, Henri. Really loved Papillon, and the bloom is a bit off the rose in the sequel. Still an interesting read, but where Charriere was a romantic, rebellious hero in the first book, wronged by society, here he reveals himself as a bit of a mess.
In Banco, the repeating pattern reveals itself. He constantly puts himself in troublesome situations with shady people, and then is somehow surprised when it ends badly in disaster, and somehow never sees it coming. The latter half of the book devolves into pages-long rants about the injustice against him and imagining all the horrid things he will do to his persecutors. Granted, he is entitled to a fair amount of bitterness, but it got to the point where I started skipping ahead whenever the broken record started up again.
There are some nice parts about reunions with family and former inmates, his business ventures and snapshots of past cultures in places he lived, but where Papillon was lush and rich in detail, this feels like a bus tour driving in circles, pointing out things through the window. Disappointing-- he seems to make his peace with everything at the end, but it felt very self indulgent and scraped together [written after his big Papillon smash, perhaps trying to milk the cash cow] and should have employed a ghost writer or given himself a serious re-edit.
This book tarnished the image I had of Charriere from his first book, and while he may not have committed the crime he was incarcerated for, he gave his hand away in Banco and proved that he was a career criminal who did deserve jail time for numerous other things.
The ill-fated jewel heist and the bombing plot are the two stories that stick with me from Banco and seem more true to form, but overall I should have stopped after the first book. COM for topics related to the history of the British Empire. Although usually available from sellers in the U.

Dec 08, Luke Marsden rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Anyone who enjoyed Papillon. This lesser-known sequel follows his subsequent life as a free man in Venezuela, a country he describes with great affection.
Having got to know him in the first book, it is fascinating to follow the life choices he makes with his long-desired and hard-fought freedom. As would be expected, his thirst for adventure and his desire to make up for the youth he has largely lost to the penal system will not let him keep his feet in one place for long. He gravitates naturally to that murky limbo between a legitimate existence and the underworld, lives by his wits and takes wins and losses, successes and failures in his stride with equal measure.
He seems as much at home in diamond mines in the remote jungle, sprawling concrete cities, and the fishing villages of the Caribbean coast. He matures with each new venture, as though his youth was merely delayed, not altogether lost. If you have not read Papillon, read it before reading this book. Luke F. Marsden Author of Wondering, the Way is Made The author has escaped into Venezuela.
He is deeply embittered and finds it difficult at first to readjust to life on the outside. He is set on revenge for he feels that he was framed for a crime he did not commit. As a way of working out his anger, the author becomes involved in an elaborate plan to stage a big robbery so that he can not only enrich himself, but also return to Europe and exact his revenge. While set on his plans for revenge, however, the author finds love and peace of mind. When I finished reading this book, I felt very happy for the author, who had learned to cast aside the anger and rage he had bottled up inside himself during his imprisonment on Devil's Island, and find an inner peace for himself.

Dec 09, Gary rated it really liked it Shelves: Henri Charriere aka Papillon: Banco is part 2 of his autobiography and it is hard to believe that one man can have such a rich, dangerous, exciting, thrilling and ultimately fulfilling life, especially after his earlier adventures. This book is just as readable, exciting, engrossing and unputdowna Henri Charriere aka Papillon: This book is just as readable, exciting, engrossing and unputdownable as Papillon. Charriere writes in a simple, from-the-heart style that is highly expressive of all his thoughts and feelings of anger, frustration, hopes, dreams and passionate hatred of those that manufactured his conviction.
The latter includes his intention to return one day to France and kill those who 'sent him down' - and he describes how he might do it. I won't say too much about his life, other than one example: You'll have to read it to find out the result! I loved this book, which I first read as a teenager and should read every now and then to remind me that no matter what the obstacles, you must keep struggling and fighting to make a life, at which Monsieur Charriere succeeded admirably.
Highly recommended. Apr 22, Jerome Peterson rated it really liked it. Papillion was an excellent movie, but the book was even better! I found the sequel, "The Further Adventures of Papillion" at a local thrift store. It cost a quarter. I can get into Henri Charriere's writing style. It flows easily from one scene to another as though he was sitting with you at a sidewalk French cafe, with an open tab. The story starts off in a Venezuelan penal settlement, El Dorado. Here Papillion's adven Papillion was an excellent movie, but the book was even better!
Here Papillion's adventures continue as he struggles to clear his name and become a French citizen as he once was. The stories are close to being unbelievable; yet, true stories of escape from a Venezuelan prison, his con-game schemes, his brush with revolution, his near-miss bank robbery, his womanizing, his successful attempts at owning and running a business.
If you enjoyed "Papillion" you will definitely enjoy "Banco". It is a must read for adventure readers. It is an ashamed that Charriere didn't write more works for his narrative is powerful and his storytelling is compelling!
Banco : the further adventures of Papillon
View 2 comments. The second volume keeps up the trend of the first one: After reading opinions on the authenticity of the book as a memoir, I am almost certain that only a little part of the adventures told in it were experienced directly by Charriere.
He was probably influenced by many stories the other inmates told and maybe some of them were happening during his time in Guyan The second volume keeps up the trend of the first one: He was probably influenced by many stories the other inmates told and maybe some of them were happening during his time in Guyana, but it is hard to believe a single man went through all of this.
Nevertheless, since he did not plagiarized any of the existing novels, I believe he did no harm in borrowing them and presenting as his own adventures. If I would have been in his place, I would probably write the book differently.
I would be still collecting these separate events and present them as the adventures of a single character, but a character that I have met in the prison. View 1 comment. De esos libros que empiezas y no puedes parar hasta acabas. May 22, Raquel rated it liked it Shelves: Mar 17, Cisz Strasters rated it liked it.
Van de eerste helft heb ik net zoveel genoten als van het eerste deel: Maar daarna was het voor mij klaar. Nadat hij samen met Rita is, zijn de avonturen en kwajongens verhalen klaar, en dat is juist de kracht voor mij van zijn verhaal. Uiteraard heb ik genoten van het weerzien met zijn familie, maar betrapte mezelf erop dat ik stukken begon over te slaan. Desalniettemin een geweldig levensverhaal van een bijzondere man! Feb 01, Margaret rated it it was amazing Shelves: I was so excited when I found he continued his memoirs.
This volume is more farcical and adventurous, but after suffering through his time in the French prison, the author and I both needed some lighthearted fun!
May 18, Bernard Cenney rated it it was amazing. Very moving true account. Sep 02, Alex Akesson rated it it was amazing. I do not know what is written there in the book "papillon" Autobiographical novel by Henri Sharjer "papillon" became a bestseller immediately after its publication. It seems to be written from the words of the author, about his life, but the feeling that all this was not lived, read sad lines and horrifying facts, you understand with your brain how terrible all this is, and your heart does not cry and does not empathize.
Too damp, too "chopped off" stories, too big jumps taking place in other stories Quote a fascinating life from escape into Venezuela to final peace with his past. Along the way, we get a first-hand account of not only his personal adventures and capers, but a window in Venezuela at a time of boom and then revolution.
A lengthy chapter near the end recounts in detail the murder case that led to the imprisonment recounted in Papillon. This is a rollicking, exciting adventure autobiography.
