This is a very relatable story without exaggerations or glamourizations. It shows the mental suffering an addict/alcoholic lives with daily, how consuming addiction is, without being overly dramatic.
Yes, I would listen to another book by Bill Clegg
No, not all in one sitting
It's right in the middle. I like Burroughs and his work in general
The story was shocking and sad. But it gives great insight to the author, his writing and his style of humor.
I have listened to almost all of his books
What I didn't like about the book was the tone the author used to read throughout the story. It was odd coming from an author who seems so at ease and casual in other readings. His voice, the speed, the tone did nothing to enhance the story.
Excellent book for both addicts/alcoholics and for the parents/family/friends/spouses who love them. I found myself aching for both the author and his son throughout the entire book and tears came to my eyes more often than I'd like to admit.
Though slow in several parts of the book, the overall story is excellent. It certainly helps the reader realize how quickly life can change and how scary blackout drinking can become. I liked it a lot and recommend it, especially to those readers who are in or seeking recovery.
I listened to this book shortly after my first stint in rehab and I can't explain how well I related to the story. It's definitely been one of my favorite books about addiction, rehab and recovery. I really loved it and have listened to it several more times since first downloading it.
