This book is very intense. I loved it, to be honest. It presents drug use in a realistic light, and it has a very intense feel to it. I was definitely captivated by this book. I also very much like this author.
Wow. The first three chapters nearly lost me and then I got swept up into a brilliantly compelling story about heroin addiction that any non-user or parent can relate to. I know I did. Weeks later, some of the scenes still play themselves out in my head as well as the use of the language. The story moves fast and I couldn't put it down. I highly recommend this book, don't let the first couple of chapters put you out, it'll be worth it.
This book helps one to see addiction from the eyes of the addict. What is so compelling, why they can't stop. If you know an addict this is a story to read to hear the story from the inside out. Very interesting. Could not put it down.
