      Actual Rating: 1 StarTrigger Warnings:Alcohol abuse, physical abuseI received an ARC of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.I just want to get this out there right now: if you have a phobia of rats or are at all uncomfortable with vivid and, at times, disturbing discussion of rats then you don't want to go near this book. There are some things you can't unread.I don't think there is anything I liked about this book. The characters [...]

      I'd like to thank NetGalley for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review even if my review is not a positive one. The story for Out on the Drink was fine, if a little oddly paced.

      I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Don't read this book, okay?This book has little plot.Grammatical and spelling errors (at least the ARC I read did).An excessive amount of gross things described in detail.I have to say the last 50 pages of the book were the most interesting, but not interesting enough to read through the other 150 plus pages to get to.
