Cold Mountain - only a bit difficult to read with deep, flourishing descriptions. Decided not to read the final chapter because I was quite content with where I was in the book and was afraid of how it might end. I like happy endings.
The stories of tragedy and redemption found within Tales of Addiction are not about the well known celebrities you find in the usual tabloids. Rather, these stories are true-grit tales told by people you will never meet but whose words will haunt you for months, years maybe. The author collected the stories for over two years through a "call for stories" she put in journals, workshops and lectures.
