Publisher's Summary

Narrated by the visionary founding member, Hell's Angel provides a fascinating all-access pass to the secret world of the notorious Hell's Angels Motorcycle Club. Sonny Barger recounts the birth of the original Oakland Hell's Angels and the four turbulent decades that followed. Hell's Angel also chronicles the way the HAMC revolutionized the look of the Harley-Davidson motorcycle and built what has become a worldwide bike-riding fraternity, a beacon for freedom-seekers the world over.
Never simply a story about motorcycles, colorful characters, and high-speed thrills, Hell's Angel is the ultimate outlaw's tale of loyalty and betrayal, subcultures and brotherhood, and the real price of freedom.

unbelievable

The performance was good but the way the book is written makes it feel far fetched.

A hard listen

Sonny Barger has an ego the size of the USA. But don't think this is a glamorous Sons of Anarchy type lifestyle. Barger is a complete egotistical moron, he is convinced it is his way or now way. The so called "code of honour" has nothing to do with honour. This is the story of a bunch of bikers, who should've been locked up and the key thrown away. They thought they were above the law, none were nice people. They were drug taking morons who enjoyed fighting, especially if they can "ratpack" the victim (like 5 HA's on one victim).
The expression "f**k em up" is used to often, its like they are trying so hard to be tough, when really they are nothing more than a bunch of criminal thugs, drinking, drugging, raping, fighting. They thrive on the image of fear.
Its a hard listen, fascinating to see how deluded these guys are. Sonny Barger was a jumped up Napoleon. Bragging, how he faced down Law Enforcement officials, they showed no respect for fellow human beings.
If you are expecting to like these guys, good luck.

The narration is ok, but trying to hard to be tough talking.
