Devastating story that will make your blood boil and wonder WHY AREN’T THE SACKLERS IN JAIL?! You cannot hear/read this without having a new understanding of the CAUSE of mass addiction in America, and be utterly discussed with Big Pharma roll and our government’s inability to deal with the obvious. Hint: mass incarceration for all but the real perpetrators is NOT THE ANSWER,
So eye opening— the author/narrator clear did her research and in the process of writing this book, clearly came to care for these people and their families. Everyone should read this just to get a glimpse of how the opioid epidemic has vastly changed our world.
This book is such an important topic. Narration was great, really loved listening to this book even on such a hard topic.
Well written with jaw dropping stats and real life heartbreaking stories . Would prefer a professional narrator
Tremendous story and so compelling. I have a better sense of what addiction does from the perceptive this book gives and it’s heart breaking consequences for the addicted and their families left me incredibly sad. Juxtaposing this against the callousness of the drug dealers, the big pharmaceutical companies and doctors who prescribe without thinking- my view at least - is infuriating. This book packs a wallop.
An interesting book that everyone should read. Increases understanding of a growing problem that strikes the entire world. The problem is also growing in Iceland, although attempting to reduce the availability of prescription drugs.
