God this book is for saving. You get all feelings as if your living inside it. You laugh,cry, get excited, happy and sometimes depressed as you move along. Its a complete package. But in my opinion, its a message not only to drug addicts but also to pepole with any kind of addiction visualizing how one may move from rock bottom up to surface again. Well done Essam looking forward for your next one.

In terms of writing style I wouldn't give the novel more than 2 stars. BUT the beauty of the novel lies in the real life story of hope, comeback and success. Anyone who experienced the addiction of a friend or family member will relate to it. I personally learned 2 things about drug addiction from this real life story. 1- That addiction is a long life (psychological)illness that can manifest in numerous forms: drugs, alcohol, sex, work ...... 2- Leading a structured life style with help from oth ...more

So awesome that I couldn't drop it for like 10 Continuous hours :) and as soon as I finished it I was about to walk down the streets looking for junkies to tell them all that there's hope .. really there's hope only if you really want and that the only thing drugs can give you is the desperate need to quit . ...more

Captivating, thrilling, humerus and tragic. And the best part is that those events actually happened. The monkey part was epically wild، and when he was robbed for a specific amount and was given his change back! I don't to give it away but that was hilarious. I don't remember the details but I definitely recommend it. ...more

One of the best books I have ever read, It took me into another world that I knew nothing about. I'm a person that never sympathized with addicts, I thought they were weak careless people that deserved to die. This book made me change my mind and really have sympathy for addicts. A must must read. ...more

GARBAGE, BORING ... HAVE NO IDEA what the buzz is about
Ahmed Alaa
I tried and tried to be patient enough and try to complete it, but I couldn't. The novel has lots of repeated and unnecessary descriptions and situations. I kept on waiting and waiting for a climax to happen, but after reading more than a 100 pages, I found nothing new or nothing of purpose or leading to a morale happening. So the novels chances just ran out and I had to stop and put it away.
I gave it 2 stars though because, despite the redundancy and the chit-chat that fills its lines, I felt i

I don’t usually read in Arabic. Although I’m fluent in reading and writing. But I got to say that this book is beyond amazing. I think that the hope and educational aspect provided by the writer exceeded my expectations. The second day I started reading this book I went online and researched anything that has to do with the book in hopes to see if Salah would ever speak about his journey personally. This is the start of more Arabic written booked in my library. Defiantly recommending this book t ...more

The idea that this book is based on a real story has actually been so exciting, living with them since they were “little cool kids” with “amazing cars” and everyone wants to be friends with them to being scary drugs addicts that have absolutely no life is an eye opener. You might see that spoiling your kids is no problem or that some hash isn’t a big deal, but all the terrifying stories say otherwise!!

This book was really one of the best Arabic books i have read , as simple as it is i was always eager to find out what is going to happen , it deals with a real story and a real problem , and i think this book showed this problem and how to deal with it , i think this is a book everyone should read .

One of the best books I’ve read.
I laughed, I cried and most importantly knew how to deal with an addict if I ever came across one.
