Disclaimer: While I aim to be unbiased, I received a copy of this book for free to review.
I’m pretty sure I didn’t even request this one, but it arrived at my door and so I figured I might as well give it a go. Luckily, I really enjoyed it, and while I did find occasional problems with it here and there, it was entertaining enough and pretty typical for a professional quality “drug” book.
Here, we follow an unlikable heroin addict and see the highs and lows of her life through her own eyes. It’s bleak and pretty visceral, but it does get a little tedious over time just because of the protagonist’s personality. But drugs do bad things to people – and it can make them do bad things, too.
If you don’t like drug books then you won’t like this, but if you like stuff about heroin and prostitution and the dregs of society trying to survive in a world in which they’re only looking for their next fix, you’re in luck. There were a few problems with the layout in my copy, but it was also an uncorrected proof and so perhaps that was why. All in all, I thought it was pretty good.
