    review æ How to Stop Time: Heroin from A to Z How to Stop Time, Heroin from A to ZThe writing is very good and there are a lot of good ideas here In particular I like her musings about how we try to stop time The only fault I'd mention is that in parts she I think mistakenly presents her experience as universal She's clearly a very uniue person Highly intelligent educated talented ambitious And she comes from a very particular place in society So there were moments especially in the first half where she'd make a comment that vexed me a bit Overall however I found the book very enjoyable Some of the segments of this book resonated with me very much

    review æ How to Stop Time: Heroin from A to Z How to Stop Time, Heroin from A to ZI disliked the format of breaking up the prose by letters of the alphabet but the book succeeded despite that I wish the editor had realized that it didn't need a gimmick Wholly unromantic this book dramatizes neither the gritty reality of heroin use nor its superb bliss Instead it's an aching thoughtful memoir of a young life a life which includes a heroin habit The book's setting in 1990s New York City is integral to the story and its resolution Marlowe's story is as much about the people whom she meets when she does drugs and the city that holds them allStill providing the most lucid description of heroin's effects that I've ever read it is worthy of being included in the canon of drug literature And with an interest in the Romantic poets jazz artists and the Beats I've read a lot of that It's uniue partly because of its female voice but finally becaus

    review æ How to Stop Time: Heroin from A to Z How to Stop Time, Heroin from A to ZThis is the first book I've been able to start finish in six months Because it's easy to read not take seriously is structured so there are no real highs or lows but gives you enough soothing hope that YOU TOO could use heroin casually with no worse long term effects than wasting some time on living up to your Full Potential So it was a relaxing secretly optimistic little escape that I'm not portraying properly here but within the context of 2020 I don't think I'm the only one who might feel this way reading this super privileged New Yorky BS this yearAnn Marlowe is the kind of woman who insists that because SHE has never experienced severe menstrual cramps nobody else does and anybody who claims to has a cha

    review æ How to Stop Time: Heroin from A to Z How to Stop Time, Heroin from A to ZI really struggled to enjoy this book on any level whatsoever Firstly the A Z dictionary style format means that it is pretty light on narrative and the glimpses we are offered into Marlowe's addiction are not particularly engaging or revealing Secondly I didn't connect emotionally with this book at all HTST lacks the tortured urgency of William S Burroughs' masterpiece Junkie and offers none of the vitality or grim desperation of Irvine Welsh's Trainspotting trilogy It just plods along saying nothing much about anything at all The book offers nothing than a superficial glance at the most banal and tawdry details of the life of a Heroin addict In short it is boring Extremely boringThere is no doubt however that Marlowe thinks she has written something pretty special Sadly she is concerned with showcasing her knowledge of dope culture and 'the scene' than she

    review æ How to Stop Time: Heroin from A to Z How to Stop Time, Heroin from A to ZA very un shrill unsensational look at heroin and addiction which of course makes a lot of people very upset There is a healthy dose of skepticism and distance but also a sense of nostalgia and tenderness toward the scene and the time The format itself is a joke referring to the author's strained relationship with alphabetical order totally arbitrary despite the appearance of order and also yet another attempt to stop time in that it overrides chronological order becoming a stream of consciousness web of associations complete with a few hyperlinks references to other entries going both forward and backwar

    review æ How to Stop Time: Heroin from A to Z How to Stop Time, Heroin from A to Zhated hated and hated author was totally unlikable not that an author has to be likable but you can like unlikable authors but nothing about this bookauthor is likable She claims she was addicted yet never experienced withdrawal or the pains of addiction then you weren't addicted not in the physical sense not in any sense it is called a casual user yes heroin addicts can be casual users The book was slow and boring the author comes off as pretentious and you just can't warm up to her book or her story I us

    review æ How to Stop Time: Heroin from A to Z How to Stop Time, Heroin from A to ZAs someone who represents heroin addicts on a daily basis I loathed the author Her pretension and lack of awareness of her own wealthy white privilege even though she swears on several occasions that she looks Hispanic is infuriating That said the book was an interesting insight to the life of a chronic user not an addict
