The Recommend:

Methland by Nick Reding is by far the most mind blowing, well-written and gripping book I have read in 2009.

No aspect of the methamphetamine epidemic is left unexamined – the reader is taken to the living room of a disfigured addict, the strongholds of wealthy traffickers and the office of a doctor unable to heal his broken town.

Reding then steps back to show the role of Big Pharma/illegal immigration/centralized food production in allowing this all-American drug to take desperate hold on the Midwest.

The intensity of Methland’s desire for truth and healing makes for reading that is ultimately (and oddly) joyful.
