Damn, this story was so good. I got so immersed in it haha. It was well worth the read, and if anyone is wondering to read it or not definately do it.

everyone saying that it would make a good movie should check out 'requiem for a dream', the movie channy's avatar is from. It's a little cheezy but it has some real raw stuff in it as well.
Another film that focuses on the drug trade is 'less than zero'–the film adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis' book of the same name. I prefer this over requiem any day. I would definitely recommend the book as well.

The read itself, though, I found to be a little on the hifalutin side, kind of like 'A Million Little Pieces' by James Frey. You could pass it off on the basis of the kid getting straight A's before college, or the fact that he didn't totally thrash his brain, but I just find it odd when those two elements (drug dealing and sophisticated, bordering on obscure [ex. obfuscating] language) come together.

so good. kind of reminded me of goodfellas. not the actual story, just certain characters and the fact that he's like the only guy alive in the end.

shares similarities with requiem for a dream (NYC, heroin, all main characters fucked by the end)
