I gave five stars on this book because it was an amazing read I am not a reader, but being from Louisiana and having faced my own demons, this was a must read for me I always wondered what the addicts did when Katrina hit NOLA All addicts know that the fear of withdrawal is what keeps them in the constant chase of their drug This book answered so many questions and gave so much insight on what the locals went through and saw if they didn t evacuate The author gives a very grim detail on the hell [...]

    3. Phew.h to read but important for me to read While I strive to understand the insanity of heroin addiction, I find it impossible to wrap my brain around the madness I am compassionate though to the insanity of the desperate need As a mom of two daughters who have substance abuse disorder and their drug of choice is heroin, reading books like this gives me some insight to some of their behaviorlove the addict, hate the disease.

    4. A truly captivating true story of addiction, survival and recovery I have read literally thousands of books, and most of them are forgotten as soon as I move on to the next one I recommend this story without reservation This memoir is raw, real and a story that needs to be told A very very real story, so perfectly descriptive I felt many different emotions while reading this story Highly recommended

    6. Update Reread 4 12 15 I loved this book as much the second time Since the last time I read it, I had my favorite trip to New Orleans and we finally watched all the seasons of Treme recently so I think I liked the New Orleans parts even than before.Review 7 24 13 I loved this book I got it free through my Prime membership I had never heard of the book before, and I am so glad that the Kindle allows for books like this to find an audience without the expense of publishing a hard copy I really hop [...]

    7. This was an Kindle freebie and it s a real gem.The book follows the life of the author, Eliza, a heroin addict whose life has been unravelling for some time as the dark clouds of Hurricane Katrina gather When the storm hits she is too wasted to care about anything except her next hit She sleeps through the storm and when she awakens the world as she knows it has been washed away The descriptions of the deserted streets of New Orleans are very powerful, and the images of Eliza and her fellow junk [...]

    8. Gritty, earthy, brutally honest to borrow a cliche These describe the excellent memoir Heroin, Hurricane Katrina and the Howling Within An Addiction Memoir by Eliza Player The writing compels from the first page, revealing a positive outcome That reveal provides a ballast against the howling within that rips through the succeeding pages.If you cannot abide grammatical errors, then turn away now, because there are some inconsistencies in person and tense However if you forgive the technique for t [...]

    9. I really expected from this book reading reviews The writing got on my nerves It was very repetitive and the same phrase was used sooo many times to describe injecting the blood spurting like a poppy , which was a good descriptor the first time But not again and again Also the way the time skipped around made the story feel choppy and unplanned, like she went off on tangents and got distracted while writing All in all the story itself was a good one, but the writing really drove down my rating. [...]

    10. I really enjoyed this memoir Eliza was able to really conjure up the storm so I could feel it coming, arriving, and leaving It was harrowing enough on its own but then she described the hunger of needing a fix The Howling Within is an evocative phrase that really suited the wind and the need, both of which she describes so well in this book you can feel Very well written and enjoyable to read.

    11. i read this book 2 yrs ago and i LOVED it i personally love memoirs about drug addiction being an addict myself and in recovery clean off of drugs i can relate to what the author writes aboutis book right here gripped me until the very end it is a must read

    12. This might have been just another sad drug addiction story but the writing was gripping The sentences just seem to pull you deeper into the tale The author vividly described the storm so that you could hear the wind and know her fear Very good telling I ripped through this book in one night.
