There have been excellent occasions and unhealthy occasions, however to start with there have been extra excellent occasions. Once I first met Sweet the ones have been the times of juice, when the entirety was once bountiful. Handiest a lot later did all of it begin to appear to be sugar and blood, blood and sugar...It is like you might be cruising alongside in a fantastic automotive on a nice nation street with the breeze to your hair and the odor of eucalyptus throughout you. The horizon is all the time up there forward, unfolding in opposition to you, and in the beginning you do not realize the sluggish descent, or the way in which the ambience thickens. Little by little the gradient will get steeper, and earlier than you realise you haven't any brakes, you are going lovely fucking speedy.' Sweet is a love tale. Additionally it is a singular about dependancy. From the heady narcissism of the narrator's first days along with his new lover, Sweet, and the relative innocence in their shared addiction, Sweet charts their decline. Sweet turns into a prostitute, the narrator turns into a rip-off artist, and smack turns into the overall and best center of attention in their lives. However this isn't simply any other junkie novel: Davies is an overly superb author and Sweet is confronting, painful, horny, gentle and from time to time darkly hilarious. A exceptional novel.
