    Naked Lunch is one of the most important novels of the 20th century, a book that redefined not just literature but American culture. An unnerving tale of a narcotics addict unmoored in New York, Tangiers, and, ultimately, a nightmarish wasteland known as Interzone.

    Overall

    This is the first Audiobook I have not been able to finish. It seems to be a collection of profane hallucinations by the author that do not come together in any way. I gave it an hour to see if this would change. Unfortunately it did not. I have read/listened to other books written by individuals under the influence of mind altering narcotics but at least these seemed to have a cohesive story to tell. Many times I choose books to get insight into lives that are far different than mine and ones that I will likely never experience. That was my hope for this book. Unfortunately the plane of consciousness this book was written in is one that my mind cannot connect with.
