Good things first, right? Even though the theme is a difficult one, it's an amusant read. I smirked more than once. The whole book's more like a talk than a book. I got the feeling I like I was sitting somewhere with the author and he just told me his story. Okay, he gave a little lecture, too.

But not everything is fun and games. You hear the hard, ugly truth too. If you are sensitive I don't think this is the book for you. If you don't mind reading about death, drugs and sex... go for it.

The reason I gave three stars is the rambling. The book is not in chronological order - which I don't mind. It just reinforces the whole talking thing, I'd say. But sometimes there were just too many words in my eyes and it got not excactly boring... more like exhausting?

Still, it was a very interesting read.

I was provided by Transgress Press with a free ARC in exchange for a honest review. Thank you. ( )
