Just finished reading it. I’m not even ashamed to say it made me cry.
I REALLY RECOMMEND IT. It’s depressing, but it’s supposed to be.
I also loved how it was by “Anonymous”, implying that Alice could be anyone you know, anybody out there who suffers from addiction, that it’s not a specific story there are millions out there with the same one, they just haven’t been documented.
What I think was the hardest part was while reading it, there were stages where I thought “Oh everything will be better now!”, where I had that glimmer of hope, only to have it taken away as I read deeper into the book.
One cannot spend forever sitting and solving the mysteries of one’s history, and no matter how much one reads, the whole story can never be told.

So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys- to woo women- and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do. It also won’t do in your essays.

If you have read 6,000 books in your lifetime, or even 600, it’s probably because at some level you find “reality” a bit of a disappointment.

Cant say I think too much of the movie though.
