Exquisite in content and composition

I have not been more moved by piece of literature in the last 30 years as I am with Denis Johnson's Jesus' Son. I am compelled to find everything he has ever written and devour it, most likely more than one read.

narrator was good. story line was pretty terrible.

struggled to get through it. they story was hard to follow and I struggled to see the point. never ended up finishing it and was disappointed with the purchase. don't waste your money.
