Haven't heard of it, but will definitely check it out.

Just heard the father and son interviewed together on Fresh Air last week...definitely on my TBR list..

I'm going to check out NPR online and see if I can find that interview. I love Fresh Air--fantastic show. Edie, what are your thoughts on the read? This sound like a book that will make me cry my eyes out, but I'd still like to give it a try at some point.

It was a good book, your heart really bleeds for the parents. There were some things I skimmed over, drug facts, etc. I was to read his son's account next.

I hadnt heard of it but I just added it to my list. I work in the mental health/substance abuse field, so every now and then I like to keep in the loop ;) But I have to be careful so I don't do too much work "at home".

I actually have that book checked out right now. As soon as I finish Then We Came To The End, I will start it.
His son ALSO wrote a book from his viewpoint, called Tweak. I will read that one after. They both sound very good.

You'll have to let me know how Then We Came To The End was, I tried to read it but didn't get a chance to finish it before I had to return it.
I took Beautiful Boy out of the library, and couldn't finish it. I got maybe 50 or 60 pages in, and I just lost interest. I couldn't and still can't figure out why.

I requested that book from the library; look forward to it.
Then We Came To The End was brilliant! If you've ever worked in an office ... you'll relate. I really enjoyed that book.

Well, since I last posted I finished, Then We Came To the End, A Beautiful Boy, Tweak & two Meg Cabot books. LOL
And I liked A Beautiful Boy & Tweak better than Then We Came To The End. It was just SOOO hard to get into.
Tweak, is very easily, one of the scariest books I have ever read. Talk about scared straight.
