Junkies and reviving the dead...what's not to love?
Seriously, it was an exceptionally crafted novel. I loved how accurate the medical terminology was. I learned a few things, which may have been unintentional by the author, but a boon for me. For instance, the difference between necrosis and apoptosis.
The primary character is a junkie, and is portrayed in a way that you can sympathize and comprehend the "need". All of the characters were well developed. Very believable. The dialogue was also very well done. It felt as if I were actually listening to these people talk. For me, that is huge when reading. If the dialogue doesn't feel natural, then the story falls flat. Even when the Feds take Alton in to talk to him about Donna and RIP, it feels real. No cliched dialogue, just an easy flow.
Even the ending worked and left me with just the barest of smiles, comprehending precisely what the author was saying. Overall, it's not the easiest of reads, a lot to it and language and terminology that may cause one to scratch their heads. Still, if you take your time to digest it, it's a really well-done novel.
