    Just Kids begins as a love story and ends as an elegy. It serves as a salute to New York City during the late 60s and 70s and to its rich and poor, its hustlers and hellions. A true fable, it is a portrait of two young artists' ascent, a prelude to fame.

    Rick says: "Exceptional. Deeply honest and thoughtful."
    "Extraordinary"
    Overall

    I'd heard many kudos for this book and am adding mine to the long list. An eloquent, hypnotic and insightful read into a unique relationship between artists who knew their gifts long before they were discovered. A loving tribute by Ms. Smith to her lover, friend and co-conspirator, Mr. Mapplethorpe. Her voice, while calm and somewhat droll, enhances the poetry of her words.

    A clear-sighted revelation, a deep penetration into the world of Scientology by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the The Looming Tower, the now-classic study of al-Qaeda’s 9/11 attack. Based on more than 200 personal interviews with both current and former Scientologists - both famous and less well known - and years of archival research, Lawrence Wright uses his extraordinary investigative ability to uncover for us the inner workings of the Church of Scientology.

    Chris Reich says: "Scared the Hell Out of Me"
    "Creepy Story, well told."

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely, for those who love a story about a mysterious and evil cult.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The details uncovered were a great act of investigative journalism by the author. Well researched to give a fleshed-out picture of an insane and powerful cult. It portrayed our vulnerability as humans to belong and the exploitation of that weakness by sinister forces.


    Which character – as performed by Morton Sellers – was your favorite?

    N/A


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely, and I almost did.


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't want it to end!
