  1. Dawn – She Is Too Fond of Books
    September 21, 2010

    I read the print edition of this a few years ago. Like you, I didn’t always think Sheff’s choices were the best (but, who’s to say what I’d do in that situation).

    He was, however, honest, and told *his* story, not his son’s (respectful).

    Glad the audio worked so well for you!

      I agree – I really liked that he told his story, and didn’t really try to tell his son’s.

    I’m not good with stories about addiction, so I think I will skip this one..

    This does sound like a really interesting book. I think the fact that he tells his story of dealing with his son’s addiction to be kind of different, and would be interesting to read.

    This sounds like it might be a really sad book, but for some reason, it also sounds mighty interesting as well. I have read very little about meth addiction, but the topic does entice me. Great review. I am so glad to hear that this was a good read for you.

    I have read the son’s account of the story “Tweak” and I absolutely loved it! I am not sure how I feel hearing the Father’s side of the story, it might be too sad. Thanks for the good review!

      Cool! I’m going to look for the son’s account at some point, but I need to step away from the story for a bit first.
