Ever since I started high school, my desire to read for fun dropped greatly.
This was probably because I had to read textbooks and novels that I didn’t
want to read. That was one of the crappy things about school. However, since
reading Blow, my whole perspective on reading has changed.
Blow is a true story about drug connoisseur George Jung. George Jung, or “Boston
Jorge” as the Colombian Drug Cartel knows him, was one of the best-recognized
drug dealers in the late 70s and early 80s.
Bruce Porter takes the reader through all the trials and tribulations of George’s
life. The author gives a little history of where George grew up (New England)
and then goes into George’s life, starting at the very beginning.
