I found this book tedious and repetitive, as well as frustrating. It was painful to listen as the protagonist's meth-addled brain charted an increasingly loony and doomed course.
The detail I refer to above is addiction. It seems that meth was the real main character.

From one of the best chroniclers of modern life and crime, I would expect a lot more. This book fizzled in the middle compared to his other works. Compared to Black Hawk Down and Killing Pablo, it's just good. But if you haven't read Bowden and want a short account, this is a really good read.

This was good, as were all of Bowden's books I've read so far. Nice to hear the man himself narrate rather than an actor - he does a good job & tells the story well. The story itself is interesting and bizarre. It's more of a tragady than a comedy. I found Joey's utterly cluelessness frustrating at times, but that added to the story rather than detracted from it. Worth a listen.
