“It's a good thing most people bleed on the inside or this would be a gory, blood-smeared earth.”
― Beatrice Sparks, Go Ask Alice

Man. This book.

Somehow, I have never gotten around to reading Go Ask Alice before. I knew of it but all I really knew is that it is considered a classic , was anonymous and was about a teenage girl's descent into addiction. That's it.

I did not anticipate liking it all that much. I was wrong. I have had a tough time concentrating on reading lately, with the corona virus. I picked this up last night, intending to read a few pages and wound up finishing the whole thing. It is not very long either.

It was nowhere close to what I expected. I guess I thought I'd open up the book and Anonymous would already be deep into addiction. I imagined a real gritty read that wouldn't be easy to follow. I was wrong.

When we meet Alice, she is a young and wistful girl, popping with vitality, brimming with innocence with a somewhat child like and earnest world view. I adored her by the second or third page.

Her transition into darkness is so real. I mean I know many have said, in their reviews, that it feels to fast and that makes it feel unreal. But I felt it read very authentically. I have never struggled with drug addiction but have known so many..many of whom are still in my life..who have. I have lost people to it, either to mental illness or to death or just to oblivion. I know of nobody..absolutely nobody..who has not had someone in their life with these struggles.

So it all felt natural to me and heart breaking. I cannot say this book was "enjoyable" but it was deeply moving and now I wish I had read it year s ago.

There were two things I did not know. One: I did not know about the controversy. I did not know this true story might be fake. I frankly do not think it READS as fake at all. If the person many speak of having wrote it, did in fact write it, wouldn't there be more about the evils of rock music? Look at the time period it came out in. I am not convinced this is not authentic and even if it turned out it isn't, there are many an Alice across the planet, that I would have been moved and rated it the same anyway.

END SPOILER:

The second thing I did not now. I did not expect to end the book, with a smile on my face thinking Alice was on her way to recovery, only to read the epilogue and find out she died three weeks after her sunny "see ya" to her diary. That was a crushing moment. I cried. It lent the book so much power and I have to say it hit me like a ton of bricks. Excellent book.

I think the older one is the more they will like the book as having more life experience, absolutely causes you to think more in regards to this type of book.

In closing..a powerful cautionary tale and one that wound up being way more powerful and better than I ever thought. 4.5 stars. Read it if you haven't. ( )

One of the worst books I have ever read ( )

Historia anónima de Alicia, una joven que se ve envuelta en problemas adolescentes que no sabe gestionar. De esta forma, se ve envuelta en un mundo de drogas del que no puede salir. Es un relato trágico que salió en el año 1972 y que no deja indiferente a nadie. ( )

A faked memoir, poorly written. ( )
  CKHarwood | Feb 17, 2022 |
I read this when I was about 15 or so and remember loving it. I was in no way gonna take drugs not just because of this, but man did it shock me. Afterwards I found out that it apparently is not a real girls diary as I thought while reading it. That really disappointed me. Mostly I felt lied to. I would have liked it probably just the same if I had known going in that it was fiction. Either way, its a good story, interesting and makes you think. If I ever have kids, I would give it to them to read. ( )
