The accents that the narrator used was absolutely horrible. I couldn't finish the book!!!!
If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
If you dream of a version of Scarface (minus the intrigue, politics, character arcs or explosive violence) as recounted by one of the girls from Clueless (minus the self-aware humor), this may interest you
Would you ever listen to anything by Indra Sena again?
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The story opens with the inevitable disclaimer 'this story isn't about glamorizing the lifestyle, I wish I'd never done it, blah blah' then the narrator just emphasizes the depthlessness of the central character with her inflections. 'OMG i gave everyone free cocaine and they liked me! LOL!'// 'OMG I like totally gave cocaine to every guy i met and flirted with them all and like, they all tried to sleep with me OMG how did THAT happen!'// (NB the 'OMG's aren't literally vocalised, they are implied by the delivery.
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
It shows that you may live a wild life, but it isn't fodder to write a book without some sort of transformation.
Any additional comments?
The author comes across as the same teenage girl she was when all of this happened. The level of glee she gets in retelling stories of how everyone liked her when she gave out free cocaine is galling. She'll be halfway through a story about her excruciatingly chauvinistic boyfriend , and throw in a reference to how expensive her toilet seat was. If you tell a story of the violent ups and downs of a cocaine dealing lifestyle, you want a character arc, some drama, a narrative through-line, and a narrator who doesn't get the words wrong (you don't PURSUE a menu, you PERUSE it).
