Product Description

From Booklist

A lad discovers that he can walk between alternate Earths—and is swept up in a war between them in this fast-paced, compulsively readable tale. Joey gets lost in his own house, but when he steps into a patch of fog and finds himself in a world where he died, a trillion Earths lie open to him—arranged in a vast arc, with an empire of science-based planes at one end and a realm where magic rules at the other. Recruited into an army of anything-but-identical Joeys gathered from many of these worlds and charged with maintaining the balance of power, Joey picks up companions both human and non as he travels the multidimensional In Between that links the sprawling "Altiverse." In this first of what could and should be many episodes, Joey finishes his basic training by doing battle with melodramatically evil magic workers Lord Dogknife and Lady Indigo. Vivid, well-imagined settings and characters compensate for weak links in the internal logic of this rousing sf/fantasy hybrid. Peters, John --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

“Great for the die-hard GNR fan…This is a cautionary tale, all the way.” (Penthouse)

Knowing how much of his life he spent wacked out on drugs, we must take everything in this book with a grain of salt. Some parts are just so outlandish that you know that Adler is full of it. Still was kind of interesting to see his version of how GnR starts. The end of the book is just a hot mess, multiple chapters of his drug use. The reader keeps waiting for the punchline, where he sees the error of his ways and how he recovers. Sorry you won't find that here, just an abrupt ending about how he is taking it day by day now. Basically I spent the entire book saying to myself, "ya right".

After finishing this book, I felt I needed to take a long, hot shower to get the dirty off. He really goes indepth into the debauchery of the rock n roll lifestyle, and everything you could imagine happen, happens...and more. But, isn't that why we read these books? In some sense to live vicariously through them? To pull back the curtain and take a peek. Adler opens up wide. He left nothing to the imagination, which I appreciated, and takes you through the key important moments of his early days, through to the highs and lows of GnR. He writes like he is the epitome of the perfect 'party boy' and this is a great read for any GnR fan, or face it, an Adler fan. What I enjoyed most was he was able to be honest with himself, humble, forgiving and it leaves you with a warm feeling after you realize...Adler still loves everybody. Everybody.

It's hard not to feel bad for Steven Adler's failure to truly overcome his long battle with addiction. The book was interesting, yet I'm left convinced Adler's account of certain situations isn't exactly how events really unfolded.

Steven Adler is smart, he really is, he's smart by being fully aware that he's a has-been and he says it himself in the beginning of the book. Here's another thing; he's really a nice guy. His story is an interesting one and he tells it like it is, he knows he screwed up big time on many occasions in his life and that he did a lot of damage to those whore cared and loved him. Steven did abused alcohol and drugs, but then again many GN'R members did. However, probably no one suffered more from it than Adler did. I always felt sorry for Adler because he was the only one smiling in the Guns N'Roses videos and he would always sign autographs and seem to have a good time, he truly enjoyed the rockstar life to the fullest. Adler really is a fan who got to be a rockstar and hang out and meet many of his idols like Steven Tyler and Aerosmith, he himself loves the fans and knows what it's like to be one and that's appealing to the readers. He was the original drummer in Guns N'Roses and that counts for something, right? I didn't rush out when My Appetite For Destruction was released but Adler's got a story to tell and his book is worth is reading if you're a fan.

I remember reading Slash's 2007 autobiography, which was really good, and reading in the autobiography about Adler and what he was like. I can say that after reading this book Slash was right in his portrayal of Adler in his own bio. Steven is really this trippy, joyful character but drugs played a big role in his life and ruined a lot of things for him. I'm glad that's been doing much better lately and that he received the help and support he needed to get over his addictions and problems.

Adler goes full out and tells his story. Really makes you feel bad for the guys luck. He was so happy and living the rock star dream until it all went downhill. If you're a GNR fan you will love this book
