Descriptions du produit


The torture and hell of adolescence has rarely been captured as clearly as it is in this classic diary by an anonymous, addicted teen. Lonely, awkward, and under extreme pressure from her "perfect" parents, "Anonymous" swings madly between optimism and despair. When one of her new friends spikes her drink with LSD, this diarist begins a frightening journey into darkness. The drugs take the edge off her loneliness and self-hate, but they also turn her life into a nightmare of exalting highs and excruciating lows. Although there is still some question as to whether this diary is real or fictional, there is no question that it has made a profound impact on millions of readers during the more than 25 years it has been in print. Despite a few dated references to hippies and some expired slang, Go Ask Alice still offers a jolting chronicle of a teenager's life spinning out of control.

From AudioFile

This "classic" about a girl's struggle with drug addiction is still being read widely by young adults. Written in diary form, it covers a year in the life of a 15-year-old as she's first introduced to drugs and then as she tries and fails repeatedly to shake the habit. Moore does an excellent job with the difficult task of narrating the diary entries, which are repetitious and noticably lacking in action. Nevertheless, Moore reads with great emotion and is convincing as a teenaged girl. As she reads each entry, the listener knows from the outset, just from the tone of her voice, whether the main character is on or off drugs. Unfortunately, even her impeccable performance isn't enough to keep this from becoming tedious. This audiobook would have been much more successful in abridged form. S.S.R.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 An Adult Reader's Review 25 mai 2002
Par Gary F. Taylor - Publié sur Amazon.com
Presumably the diary of a teenage drug addict, GO ASK ALICE was first published when I was in junior highschool. It was widely distributed at my school, and the faculty urged the students to read it for an accurate portrait of the horrors of drug use--and read it I did. At the time I was very, very impressed by the book. But that was almost thirty years ago. Today I am 40 years old, and I am a much more critical reader than I was when I was 12. And my thoughts upon rereading this book are quite different than they were when I first came to it.

The obvious issue here is whether or not the book is what it purports to be. Upon re-reading it, I find myself willing to believe that GO ASK ALICE is indeed the diary of a teenage drug user--but I also think it has been heavily re-written in spots to intensify its anti-drug agenda. I base this observation on two points. First, whenever the book describes drugs or their effects, it suddenly changes tone and becomes very, very specific in a way that the other entries are not. Secondly, the descriptions it offers re the effects of certain drugs are exactly those you would expect of a non-drug-user writing with reference to studies available in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

This does not change the fact that this is a good book for young teenagers to read. The literary merit is zero--but that is not the point; the point is, as it always was, that casual drug use is simply not a good idea, and it places you in a situation where one thing can easily lead to another without the user being aware of the drift or having concious control. But it is also a book that needs to be read with responsible adult imput, for some of its content may need qualification. Ultimately, although dated and perhaps not quite as honest as it at first glance seems, it remains a powerful tool in any parent's anti-drug arsenal.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Go Ask Alice, an attempt at "non-fiction" 26 décembre 2009
Par Ralph Nguyen - Publié sur Amazon.com
I found Go Ask Alice while I was thrift shopping at Good Will. I heard about the book before and seen it on Facebook profiles, but I never read it myself.

I was a bit hesitant to read it because even from the back of the book, it sounded quite fabricated. For instance, psychedelics are hardly addictive, and the book claimed that the protagonist was addicted to acid. Whatever though - for a dollar, the book was a steal.

I enjoyed the book enough to finish it, but it seemed like the author had some ulterior motives in writing it. The story was too extravagant to be real, and the story seemed to be pushing religion every other page. A lot of "facts" about drugs in the pages were blatantly made up, and the story seemed to be geared to scare kids away from drug experimentation.

It sounds like the author, Sparks, had a goal in mind (to write about a controversial topic and take a righteous viewpoint) and then worked backwards from it. Yuck!

A quick Wikipedia search shows that evidence to support my suspicions. Sparks's name is also tied to other "diaries" about a teen boy's experience with the occult, a teen's experience on the streets, and another teen's experience with pregnancy.

The story itself was pretty good, but I certainly won't be recommending this work of "non-fiction" to anyone!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Take this book with a large grain of salt - IT'S FICTION! 27 novembre 2004
Par lit teacher jones - Publié sur Amazon.com
I don't mind people liking this book or gaining something from this book, but many of the adult reviewers here seem hellbent on promoting this book as either as either a major literary work or as an actual diary depicting the horrors of teen drug abuse. It is neither. I think it does potential readers, especially teen readers a true disservice to promote this book in either way. If you're doing this, you are not being honest.

It is NOT a real diary. It simply is not. It is a work of fiction created by Sparks. She continued this path - soap opera in diary form in a full-out series of books warning teens about the consequences of bad behavior. Don't believe me? Go to the Snopes Web site (you know, the one that confirms or dispells urban legends, rumors and out-and-out lies?) and read about Go Ask Alice. The researchers there confirmed that It is a work of FICTION written by SPARKS (not "Anonymous") as if it were a real diary. I'm not saying this is necessarily a bad thing, as long as teens aren't being told this is a girl's real diary. That would be a lie. I don't believe in lying to teens, regardless of how noble you think the cause. Interesting note - Sparks, who is now in her eighties - was (maybe still is, I don't know) a member of the Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints church. She wrote books that promoted the values of her church (obey your parents, clean living, etc.) - she just seemed to forget that annoying little commandment "Thou Shalt Not Lie." Apparently, there was even a 1979 musical inspired by "Alice" follow-up "Jay's Journal" that focuses on Spark's promoting fiction as fact, taking advantage of "Jay's" family (there actually was a "Jay," but most of the book about him was fiction) to enhance her own career, etc.

BTW, note to English teachers - if you're having your students write papers on this book (there are better books out there), make sure the papers aren't plaigerized from the net. I was amazed at how many "lift this paper" versions of Alice book reviews I found. A tipoff is that most, if not all, spoke of Alice as being a wonderful, emotional, true account of a teen struggling with drugs. If students actually research this book, they'll know it's fiction. Of course, being an English teacher, you already should know it's fiction, right?

There are books that give true, harrowing accounts of what happens when you use drugs. This is not one of those books. This book is a didactic soap opera - a cautionary tale written in a highly dramatic, unrealistic way. It is not particularly well-written, not great literature, but it's written in an emotional, dramatic, edgy (for it's time) way to draw in teen readers. Judging by its popularity and the doggedly admiring reviews here, it's been very successful.

I don't mind this book or its format, but I do have a tremendous problem with it being promoted to teens as something that it is not. Enjoy it as a work of fiction, realize that drug users generally have very sad, wasted lives, use it as a way to realize you should "just say no," whatever. But realize it's basically a fictional soap opera or an after-school-special in fake diary form. If you understand that, then by all means, read and enjoy. Don't use drugs and don't lie to people. Both are nasty habits to have.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 An exercise in futility. 11 mars 2001
Par Andrew M. Schirmer - Publié sur Amazon.com
"Go Ask Alice," the tome so gloriously expounded upon by four-hundred and forty-four readers below, is a fictional account of a teenager's descent into drugs. It is "edited" by Dr. Beatrice Sparks. Now take a moment, Amazon shopper, and do a search for "Beatrice Sparks" under "Books." As you can see, Ms. Sparks knows a quite a few anonymous teenagers, each of them with a different malaise. Whether it's Annie (pregnancy) or Nancy (date rape/AIDS), Jay (drugs/Satanism) or Jennie (pills), or even Sam (gang violence), Ms. Sparks covers it all.
At the age of eleven, reading this book was a terrifying gateway into nethers of teenage existence. Now, at the age of nineteen, it has become a relic of the American War On Drugs; an antiquity like Nancy Reagan's "Just Say No" campaigns or the "D.A.R.E." program. Like most anti-drug literature, it's well meaning, but inconsistencies ultimately get the upper hand.
"Go Ask Alice" reads like a pulp conspiracy novel, with the subject "tricked" into addiction by her friends (acid in the Cokes at a Party) who will stop at nothing to make sure she keeps taking drugs. The amount of drugs consumed throughout the book would have made Grace Slick nauseous. The climax is equally laughable.
David Toma had it right when he said that the most important factor in keeping kids off drugs was the unconditional love and care of a family. Maybe Ms. Sparks should have written a book on that instead.
---- For those who can stomach a truly candid book about drug use, seek out "Naked Lunch" by William S. Burroughs. For those who lack the patience to actually READ a book, watch Soderbergh's "Traffic."

2.0 étoiles sur 5 on the banned book list for the wrong reasons 17 septembre 2004
Par lulubella - Publié sur Amazon.com
Every year I have students tell me that this is their favorite book, and every year I feel compelled to explain to them that it isn't really a real diary and that Alice didn't exist. If they were to read the book with a more critical eye, they would see that it is complete garbage. It is preachy, moralistic, and poorly written. "Alice" is a nice girl from a good family who is slipped drugs once and is suddenly dropped into a nightmare world of abusive sex, prostitution, homelessness, and pain. Her attempts to get herself out of this nightmare are thwarted by the "bad kids" who gave her the drugs in the first place. In Alice's world, parents are always right and kids from broken homes always troubled. This book is a very dated response to the growing acceptance of drugs in the popular culture during the late 60's and early 70's. Go Ask Alice is almost always being banned by some school district somewhere for its supposed frank discussion of drugs and sex. I don't believe in banning books, but I wouldn't be sad to see this book taken off reading lists. As an earlier reviewer said, it is like watching Reefer Madness--it is so far from reality, and I think it does a disservice to kids to pretend that this book represents the real world.
