    "Abrupt Ending...."
    What did you love best about Confessions of an English Opium-Eater?

    Flawless narration of an interesting account. The ending seems faulty as though the whole story had not finished. Very odd.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Confessions of an English Opium-Eater?

    The narrative of his difficulties as a young man were very sad.


    What does Roy Macready bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brought the book to life. A brilliant performance.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Very moving.


    Any additional comments?

    I think someone should check to see if the whole book has been downloaded. Awful ending as though it is incomplete.
