If you have ever struggled from alcoholism, drug addiction, or possibly hoarding (his apartment) this book hits very close to home. Burroughs does an excellent job of verbalizing some of the worst, most least talked about feelings of someone struggling with dependency. It will take you inside yourself, or, back to where you've been.
He completely lays his soul bare.
He is an excellent narrator. I would not enjoy the book nearly as much if Burroughs hadn't read it. Only he knows his thoughts, feelings and experiences, so, no one else would have been able to express his emotions and relive his experiences.
I remembered bad times, but felt very proud of myself, as should he.
Brilliant disturbing rapturous
When Lolita leaves him
Many reactions and it raised many philosophical issues within myself
A must read to challenge oneself
The overall story is good if you don't over think it. While King addresses some of the paradoxes of time travel, however, he ignores some of the truths we know about time travel and ignores the unmentioned paradoxes, so, if you can forget those, it's entertaining. Also, the narrator does a good job, but, he does not sound 35, which sometimes the listener to either wonder why a 35 is behaving like a senior citizen, or vice versa. Lastly, being the exact same age as the protagonist in 2011, I find his knowledge of 50s-60s era pop culture a little too vast, it was hard to accept, but, I would accept it from someone older. So, I was constantly taken out of the story to rethink the character. But, if you can separate your mind from these things, the premise of the story is good.
It's a good dog walking book, jogging book, or, an easy listen.
