review 1: Wow. I'm not sure where to begin on this. O'Neill knows how to write. Better still, he knows how to tap into the darker, addictive side of humanity. His dialogue is seamless and believable, and each page plays itself out like a twisted movie ride, a euphoric high that the reader can feel along with the drug-addled characters. He makes you board the truth train, and refuses to pander to your romantic side, preferring, instead, to pin your eyes open and make you watch as everyone self-destructs. Jim Carroll had nothing on this guy, and I fucking adore Jim Carroll. I finished this book in a day, scarcely breathing. Read it. It's worth it.
review 2: you begin with an easy introduction into this journey. the chapters jump around from character to character
... more. allowing you to distinctly connect and analyze each one personally. disturbing and interesting. it's a new book that touches on real people and current events. the names are changed, but you can figure out who tony o'neill is really writing about here. a good example of the ugly truths and depths drug addicts must steep to. the book doesn't make me want to live in l.a. it does make me want to tune into a&e's intervention. i enjoy connecting with these scoundrels. sick city serves up that possibility. less
