I heard about Tweak Beautiful Boy through the provocative NY Times book review a few months ago The idea of having such a harrowing story told from two opposite perspectives really piqued my interest Tweak is nothing if not engaging That being said, I find the writing to be sub par, at best After listening to a Nic Sheff podcast, I learned that Nic writes exactly how he speaks Filled with like, you know s, I found myself frequently wondering if this was the caliber of work that landed him I heard about Tweak Beautiful Boy through the provocative NY Times book review a few months ago The idea of having such a harrowing story told from two opposite perspectives really piqued my interest Tweak is nothing if not engaging That being said, I find the writing to be sub par, at best After listening to a Nic Sheff podcast, I learned that Nic writes exactly how he speaks Filled with like, you know s, I found myself frequently wo
A book in need of an editor But maybe that is the definition of an out of control life of a teenage young twenty drug addict, a life in need of an editor. I just wanted to choke the guy Shows addiction in a brutally honest way, but had to keep putting the book down.

Honestly after reading Beautiful Boy this book was a let down I felt our writer was one of the most selfish, self inflated narrative voices I have read in a long time By the end of the book I hated the kid and found that he glamorized and legitimized his meth addiction I am curious if this book was only published thanks to Nic s father s connections A cliched story of an addict who really is too concerned with his California land of plastic existence Barf I am sure the movie starring so g Honestly after reading Beautiful Boy this book was a let down I felt our writer was one of the most selfish, self inflated narrative voices I have read in a lo
