Emotionally raw and harrowingly real Some Are Sicker than Others is a moving story of redemption Crack addict Dave Bell and alcoholic Monty Miller both struggle through the conseuences of a life changing event Dave s mentally disabled son Larry accidentally ran him over with a golf cart injuring his leg and putting an end to his athletics career while Monty s fianc e also a recovering alcoholic was killed in a car accident after which Monty relapsed embarking on a suicide mission These two troubled men meet in a rehabilitation center in the wintery mountains of Colorado their paths intertwining than they could have imagined The thoroughly cultivated iced over setting provides a backdrop for the story one can easily concoct in one s mind the snowy mountainous landscape Seaward paints with his words The perfect pitch of the language in developing the mid winter Colorado setting and the deep cutting emotional environment is perhaps the novel s strongest point Due to the subject matter of the book it can be difficult to read in many places though it is important to absorb every word in order to get the full effect of the story While some events can appear too intense or too harrowing for the reader to take in all at once the events are never unrealistic Always plausible even inevitable the mistakes these characters make are mistakes that the uintessential addict makes The violence disturbing behavior one sided motivations and lack of compassion especially in Dave are so well drawn and realistic that it can be emotionally draining to read but in a good way if a novel about drug addiction can do anything in a good way Each mistake is vital in Dave and Monty s path toward redemption even or perhaps most particularly in the scene when Dave is finally caught by the police driving a school bus full of terrified high school volleyball players as well as the eleven year old Larry Dave accelerates upwards of ninety miles per hour and when he is pulled over and arrested for the possession of crack his mentally challenged son is tasered for attempting to defend him One often finds oneself literally begging Dave to get a hold of his problems to see beyond the haze of his addiction as if he were a character in a horror movie about to open a cellar door where a monster resides This is another of Seward s strengths he drags the reader into the character s head so deeply that no matter how disturbed his mind is the reader yearns for his redemption Dave and Monty s motives are clear the reasons for them going down the path to addiction defined and their denial and emotional toil distinct Though Some Are Sicker than Others is unrelenting gut wrenching and needs to be taken in a chunk at a time rather than in a few sittings it is the gritty truth of how addiction can ravage a human life but it also offers a glimpse of the capacity of human forgiveness

Some are Sicker than Others features some characters who are heavily weighed down by their addictions I knew from the book descriptions they would end up in rehab together I endured the first several horrifying chapters involving their appalling bad choices and addiction clouded thinking partly because I wanted to see what would happen later on in the book and partly because the writing was so compelling This book reminds me of a roller coaster where the rides begins with the vehicle being dragged up up up to a terrifying height then careens down and around in an even scarier manner As I continued through the chapters I wondered if some or all of these troubled people would be able to find a way to turn their lives aroundI ve had some experience with attending AA meetings with friends who had addictions so I understand the basic principles of AA and recovery This book in addition to being tremendously well written does a great job of educating the reader about issues related to addiction and recovery I can imagine people buying it not only for the uality of the writing but also for the way the story grabs you and shakes sense into youI was reading this book via the Kindle reader at my PC with my teenage daughter next to me at her laptop and about halfway through I came to a particularly emotional part of the story and tears started rolling down my cheeks I had to leave my PC for a few minutes so that I could recover Reader be warned this story is not for the faint of heart
