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.
