I was hopeful that I would be drawn into this book. Unfortunately, the narration is awful, the pace of the plot slow and the characters forgettable. I'm not going to finish listening and write this one off to "They can't all be good." Blech.
My own son is addicted to drugs (though not meth) and alcohol. He read this book and insisted that I did. I admit, the first half of the book was horribly painful for me. It was as if I was reading about my own family and their struggles. However, it got me to admit things to myself that I had not been able to previously. I know from experience that this book is as painfully honest as it gets. By the end, I was nodding. Yes, there is only so much I can do for my son, but, I can deal with my addiction to his addiction in the most positive way possible. I can help myself. Well done Mr. Sheff!
The characters seemed to be very stereotypical and one dimensional. I didn't really feel a connection with any of them.
The 'intrigue' aspect of this book wasn't very intriguing. It was fairly predictable.
No. I found her accent difficult to follow and she was too quiet. Very short phrases and very little flow.
Disappointed. The review had been very positive.
A waste of time. Boring characters, boring story line. Hours of my life I'll never get back.
