In A Stone's Throw, the listener experiences the journey of a 13-year-old boy who is moved from a calm suburban life to a chaotic existence in Los Angeles. We follow the subtle progression of the partying indulgences of youth as they digress into a dark and twisted life of survival, seduction, and excess that are part of a secret cult existence of crime, drugs, and sex. Scott's life devolves from its once youthful and normal innocence to tragic loss of character and spirit as he and his high school friends become some of Los Angeles' most notorious counterfeiters, drug dealers, and thieves, enslaved by exotic drugs few people know about to this day. The climax of his memoir is a terrifying, suspenseful event that escalates on a trajectory with one of two outcomes: total self-annihilation and death or profound and enlightening salvation.
I gave up after 15 mins. He shouldn't have narrated his own book and his choice of vocabulary was odd, to say the least.
