The story is compelling and the writing is very good.
There are technical issues with fonts (at least on the Kindle version) and it could benefit from a little more proofreading.
It's hard to rate the book as a whole because while it's a definite page turner, the reader is left with a conflicting message of who the real victim(s) is(are) of alcoholism. As a daughter of an alcoholic, I am disappointed in the conclusions drawn about how a parent's nightmarish journey through alcoholism affects loved ones. I was left with a hollow feeling of lessons not fully learned, and in a way, this comes across as a memoir Part I.
