I didn’t want it to end. Probably the best book I read (heard) in a long time. Also the most honest (and relatable) addiction memoir yet. A masterpiece. The metaphors and pop culture references were gold. There were times where I wanted to cry and times I could not stop laughing. Well done!
Loved it! The way she talks about her addiction, I felt sucked into the desperation kind of feeling she describes and I couldn't stop listening! Also I would feel kind of icky after listening for a while, to me a great sign of a good book is that it can give you a feeling that stays with you for a while. She is brutally honest and real and I appreciate how she points out what a privileged brat she was, but addiction does not discriminate. Great listen, hope to hear more from her like maybe going in to some of the side stories in a separate book that she didn't have time to go into with this one.
like being stuck next to a mindless teenager on an 11 hour flight. There was no substance or story of value between her horrible constant screaming about pests and her diatribes of clothing names and outfits. save yourself time and read a middle school girls diary. it will be shorter.
Incredible and brutally honest book. Hearing it in Cat's voice brings the whole book to life.
This book is mindless, shallow and repetitive. It sounds like the audience target is 17-21 however the content is much more mature. Cat wrote exactly how she speaks... like a valley girl. I could hardly listen.
Well, this is real. Although she lived the life of a privileged drug addict, she shows how not glamorous this lifestyle is. I am approximately the same age as her, so I appreciated the timeline. My life is very different. I am a chiropractor and haven't as much as taken a Tylenol in 20 years, but ironically my husband is a pain management doctor. We see the struggle in our office and it is real. Today with electronic health records and rgulations on urinalysis, prescription drugs are much harder to come by on the legal market, but if you try hard enough, you can just as effectively murder you're life. I hope this helps to detour a few people from this lifestyle. I also (truly) appreciate the sarcasm, foul language and lack of political correctness. Rock on!
