Had lost my hard copy of the book so I'm glad that I was able to get a free audio book!
Other than the insightfully dark experiences, told within the story, James Patrick Cronin almost sounds like Marilyn Manson, which made it that bit better.
Also, the reading was delivered in an enticing and believable manner.
Overall, I'm happy that I put aside my unreasonable, unjustified, assumed dislike for audio books and moved with the times!

I should start off by saying that I have always been a strong Marilyn Manson fan. Definitely not someone you would see at his concert, but someone who appreciated his music, uniqueness and artistic style. In interviews he always struck me as intelligent and eloquent. Regrettably, I was very disappointed in this book. Besides the occasional gratuitous and salacious storytelling (which I’ll admit was entertaining, although severely limited!) I found it both pretentious and self indulgent.
Sometimes people moan on and on about how different they are from the norm. Which I can respect to a degree. But towards the end, his point was lost because he dug himself Into a hypocritical hole where he (at least in my opinion) transformed into a narcissistic bully, desperately trying to showcase the superiority in his beliefs and lifestyle not because his way of living brought him any sense of fulfillment. But for the juvenile reasoning that he seems to passionately hate normalcy in any sense of the word.
I don’t have to agree with what someone preaches, but at least make a decent case for yourself. Or at the VERY least, write it well.
Left this book less of a fan than i was coming into it, unfortunately.
