  • In my opinion the book is mediocre at best
  • Although I thought it was well written,the title of the book leads you into thinking it's about years of elicit drug use and many failed attempts at getting clean
  • Of course that kind of emotional is needed in any good memoir about drug use I like to read books where the person is either in a rehab withdrawing and trying to get clean or where they are high through the majority of the book

      I just read this book that I was hearing very good things about. Tweak is a memoir written by Nic Sheff about “growing up” on methamphetamine.

      In my opinion the book is mediocre at best.

      Although I thought it was well written,the title of the book leads you into thinking it’s about years of elicit drug use and many failed attempts


      at getting clean.

      In reality it only covers about four to six months of actual hard-core drug use with a few vague references to him smoking weed and drinking when he was a teenager.

      I really wanted to enjoy this book but within the first five minutes of reading it I knew it was going to be a disappointment.

      Mostly the centers book is about how depressed and alone he feels and how he struggles with his writing and finding his career and how he can’t seem to find his niche in this world.

      Of course that kind of emotional is needed in any good memoir about drug use I like to read books where the person is either in a rehab withdrawing ...

      and trying to get clean or where they are high through the majority of the book.

      That is what I believed was going to be in this book.

      Although the drug usage in the book is not what the title makes it appear to be.

      It was very easy for me to relate with him on an emotional level.

      I understood

      how you can feel inadequate and alone when everyone seems to have their life in order except you.

      So if you are looking for a book about someone’s long term hard core drug addiction and years of struggling to get clean, go somewhere else.

      If you are wanting to read a book on someones short journey through addiction and self discovery this is your book.
