    Den heta sommaren 1967 lämnar Patti Smith New Jersey för att söka äventyret i New York. Hon är tjugo år gammal, törstar efter nya intryck och erfarenheter, vill inspireras och utvecklas. Och framför allt vill hon skapa. I New York träffar hon sin själsfrände Robert Mapplethorp, som blir hennes följeslagare under de kommande åren, då båda når stor berömmelse och revolutionerar sina konstarter; han som fotograf och hon som musiker och poet.

    Overall

    It's irresponsible for Audible not to signal that this book is in Swedish.
    It's a misleading and bait-and-switch posting. Wasted points.

    Story
    (466)

    Over the course of his 60 years, Christopher Hitchens has been a citizen of both the United States and the United Kingdom. He has been both a socialist opposed to the war in Vietnam and a supporter of the U.S. war against Islamic extremism in Iraq. He has been both a foreign correspondent in some of the world's most dangerous places and a legendary bon vivant with an unquenchable thirst for alcohol and literature.

    "Audio Book Disaster"
    Overall

    Christopher Hitchens narration is impenetrable. His diction is terrible and his inflection is non-existant.
    It was a terrible decision to allow him to narrate. Beyond that, his endless name-dropping and self-aggrandizing is tedious in the extreme.

    Don't bother. I have added one star only because the form cannot be posted without a minimum of one star.
