3.0 out of 5 stars Needs a Co-Author,or an editor, or some kind of help!
I didnt wanna give this book 2 stars.. but 3 stars may be pushing it too.Although this story is a powerful one, its insanely difficult to read. I dont know who published or edited this book but its painful!! You feel like your reading a 5th grade book report. A co-author to spruce up this memoir and make it readable would go a long long way. Again.. powerful story-poorly...

This is one of the best books i have read to date and now the two books i got from the library seem boring, i love a book that calls you back and you can't wait to get back to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful transformation, September 22, 2012
This book was absolutely amazing. My fiancé is a recovering heroin addict and I read this and couldn't stop crying! Lori is an amazingly strong and beautiful woman. I've recommended this book to other addicts, meth, alcohol, and heroin. Her transformation is amazing, and I was captivated by her no nonsense style of delivery. Thank you Lori for sharing your life with the world. This book not only helps addicts, but the people who love them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Engrossing, July 15, 2012

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I thought this was a really good book. Sure, there were some typos and grammatical problems, but this is written from the heart by a woman who was too busy surviving to get an education. It kind of adds to it in a sad way. This is a book that really stays with you. Lori, I know that you will find Jessica some day... highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good, needs work., April 14, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This was a really good book. It was sad and I felt like I really knew the author as if she were my friend. In most of the book I could relate and the way she wrote it was really good. The only down fall of this book is maybe a little run-on; explained too much. It was very emotional at times, but at the end it amazing. Some grammatical errors, but okay. I have read tons of addiction memoirs and really enjoyed reading about your recovery. You still came out on top after all the abuse, neglect. I was also wondering about your daughter, have you found her?

Good book. I recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting, April 22, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: TRAPpED: Memoirs of an EX-METH addict and her RECOVERY out of the insanity of it all (Paperback)
Very well written autobiography. The author is extremely candid. I found it hard to put it down. This book provides an insight into the mental forces behind drug addiction and recovery. I think every defense attorney who represents addicts should read rhis book.
