The book was pretty good until I reached the very last chapter. Then I was utterly disgusted. This woman had me feeling horrible for her and what she was going through only to find out at the end that her baby was born addicted to crack. HELLO???!!!! The only way this can happen is if SHE was the crack addict and not the husband!!!! I have no sympathy for this lying manipulative woman who is now whoring her story for money. Research the facts, a baby cannot be born addicted to crack unless the mother has been using it! I feel no remorse for this woman and threw the book away immediately. I want my money back. This woman is a liar and gets no sympathy from me. Her kids deserved to be taken from her.

Have you or someone you know been impacted by the effects of drugs? Are you aware of the impact that it brings to the immediate family and those around? Cynthia D. Hunter addresses these questions and more in her book DIARY OF A CRACK ADDICT?S WIFE.
Based on a true story and taken from the pages of her actual diary, Hunter takes us into a time frame of over three years. In this period, she candidly shares the abusive relationship that she endured with her former spouse, Mark. From the surface, Mark seemed to be the perfect partner; however, after the discovery of his addiction to crack cocaine, the relationship dramatically changed, leading to a road of heartache, struggle, abuse, and betrayal. From beginning to end, we are offered a first hand account on how the addiction impacted all involved and how the journey changed her life.
Whether you or someone else has been affected, the message that is offered is honest, passionate, and compelling. Many who have already been impacted will relate to Cynthia?s story. While my only criticism is that the distinction between the commentary and actual entries should have been clearer, Ms. Hunter has broken new ground in the literary world by sharing her own story. In the midst of it all, Ms. Hunter has come through, and I applaud her for her courage to make a difference in the lives of those who will come across this tale.

Format: Paperback
I must agree that this book was very hard to put down and that the author's messages to the reader are truly inspiring and moving. However, if you are like me, and are very analytical when it comes to reading, it seems as though the author's message is lost somewhere along the line when she does not turn out to be the "martyr" she portrays herself to be. (SPOILER ALERT...don't read on if you don't want to know what happens!)
Initially, you feel sorry for the author and understand where she is coming from...you want to sympathize with her as she always looks for the good in people. However, as the book progresses, you realize that the author is just as irresponsible as the crack addict himself. She goes along through the book, pointing out what a "bad" man he is all the while skipping and glossing over her own obvious issues as if there is nothing wrong with them. This author has had 3 children out of wedlock with 3 different men (did they ever actually get married or was it a common-law marriage). Not once does she ever mention that perhaps this was irresponsible (oops..she "got" pregnant!) Now I'm no fuddy duddy but this preaching of hers is completely clouded by her obviously un-Christian lifestyle. The clincher is the obvious addiction of her own...spending. The minute she gets any money in her hands, she is out buying clothes, cars, shoes, getting her hair done. It never stops. She also glosses over her past battles with alcoholism and has a baby born addicted to crack in the end. I agree a woman should treat herself once in a while but come on...if your crack addict husband is blowing all of your money and you were pregnant, wouldn't you be saving for a rainy day? Maybe he isn't the only irresponsbile one...I lost my sympathy for her character as soon as I realized she had her own demons she refused to acknowledge yet expected him to change. Huge disapointment.

I bought this book, started reading, was amazed it ever got published, put it down, picked it up again and reconfirmed my opinion. I thought the writing was simple and pedantic. Her story didn't add up in some cases. (she's slicing him up in the kitchen and her brother doesn't wake up?,)It spoke to a limited group, primarily black women living in the hood. I work with these women, they're not going to read this book. I found the vernacular to be pandering. There was no hope in this book. I found myself more frustrated than connected with the author. I wanted to hear about her journey of self-discovery, God-discovery and all I read was "poor me".

I don't mean no disrespect to the author. I think she had good intentions for writing this book. I just think that as a writer, she missed the mark.

After reading the reviews, I went out and bought the book,expecting a good read. What I got instead was a preachy self help book.

I think that this book is good for people who may have had problems with drugs or have with dealt with addicted spouses. But for those of us who are looking for a good read, this is not the book for you. It's not a page turner, it not a book you try to stay up late to finish reading. In fact, I didn't even finsh reading the book. The preachy messages after the diary entries were just too annoying and distracting. The messages should have been saved for the ending or epilogue.

For an exciting novel about drugs, I would recommend Crack Head by Lisa Lennox or Harlem Girl Lost. Both of these books were excellent.
