Well done!

This is by far the best book of an addiction story yet. The story kept me drawn in. The reader was excellent. It was as if the reader was living this story and taking me along day by day. Best book I’ve read in a long time.

Thoroughly captured my attention. Fascinating

Farrell's attention to detail is commanding.
Fascinating view into the world of heroin addiction.
His post addiction achievements are phenomenal.
Narration was sublime. Cohen's subtlety is a masterwork.
