Publisher's Summary

JaQuavis Coleman chillingly chronicles the life and crimes of Harlem resident Hazel Brown as she rises to the highest highs and spirals into an inevitable, devastating downfall.

Hazel has nothing and no one in her life; the only thing she "owns" is an insatiable addiction to heroin. Her addiction brings her to the slums, where she quickly learns the tricks of surviving - of hustling and getting her street smarts. She'll do anything to feed her habit, even if it means robbing and conning and selling her own body. Yet no matter how much heroin she does, the pain that has cut deep within her never goes away.

The Dopefiend is a story so intimate and compellingly written, you'll feel like you're walking in Hazel's shoes.

iikane

Honestly I couldn’t even get thru chapter 1 because who ever is reading reads way to fast not allowing me to enjoy and comprehend wat is being said and at first I thought it was just this book but I’ve come to notice it’s with every book she has read sooo disappointed because the dopemans wife book was amazing so I made sure to get the whole series and welp can’t enjoy the last two book unfortunately without having to physically buy the book which I prefer audio books so not happening

Ashley and Jaquavis are brilliant.

I am enjoying this trilogy, but I found myself rewinding several times due to iikane speaking so fast. I hate to knock her but she ruins stories with her speedy read game.

Narration

Wrong narrator for this book. It seemed to have potential but the narration made the book unbearable.

Disappointed

Although, was good, however, didn't like the time wasted listening to almost a chapter being repeated from Dopemans Wife

Not thrilled with performance

Too fast and lowering the speed down made it too slow. Reader wasn’t accurately placing the inflection on the wrong words and adding weird pauses. It was distracting

Very good

A riveting book. Has lots of twists and turns especially towards the end. I am looking forward to listening to book 3.
