You cannot beat Ayn Rand - all these years later and her work is still pertinent, engaging and addictive.
Consider this book was written so many decades ago and yet is a relevant today as anything I've seen or heard. Ayn Rand is a brilliant writer, I wish we could all live by her standards.
An interesting plot, fairly well written. Some parts were longer than they needed to be and some fell short but overall a good listen, very engaging.
A true story that tells better than any fiction. Both the writing and the reading of this story had me wanting to meet Jeffrey and give him a big hug.
A lovely plot - wonderful character development, a masterful weaving of history and present seen through the main character's eyes at the start of his life and his later life. I wanted more!
Wonderfully written and read. James Frey's experience is candid, real, and gives great insight into the obsessive compulsive negative thinking that is common to addicts. Amazing single-minded recovery without any gloss.
I struggled through an hour of this, then couldn't take it anymore. If there is a plot, and there promised to be one, it is lost in the midst of the excessive adjective use usually associated with dime store romance novels. I finally gave up after the mother of a suicidal, mentally challenged teen who is waiting for the psychiatrist's pronouncement of her son's condition finds herself unable to resist the "stranger with the obsidian eyes" who bought a her a drink...oh really. This is the first time I've ever been disappointed with a purchase from Audible. There should be a separate category for novels like this.
