The heaviest book I have read

I am about halfway through one of the heaviest books I have ever read, I had read a few heavy books in my time. I was impressed as it is written by a South African author.

"Acid Alex" by Al Lovejoy is a true story of chaos, drugs, reformatory, prison, slappers, robbery, crazy SA accents and lingo, crime syndication, international drug smuggling, . Brutally honest and written in a relaxed meandering style this book is a must read for any open-minded South African. Oh yes. Did I mention that the foreword is written by Koos Kombuis?

"Acid Alex will shock, assault, educate and entertain you, and take you on a trip beyond your wildest imagining."

When interviewed about the book a very good looking young lady recommended it to me because she found it "as hard as some places in South Africa, this book was very hard to put down. I read it within a week and it opened my eyes to the underground world beneath my feet."

    agreed - one of the best books I've read. Not that I've read a lot. But I've read this one. And it's one of the best.
