    4.5 out of 5 stars 3

Burroughs' first novel, a largely autobiographical account of the constant cycle of drug dependency, cures, and relapses, remains the most unflinching, unsentimental account of addiction ever written. Through time spent kicking and time spent dealing, through junk sickness and a sanatorium, Junky is a field report from the American post-war drug underground. It has influenced generations of writers with its raw, sparse and unapologetic tone.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
anybody that can put their hands on this book will learn something about a world next door
What was one of the most memorable moments of Junky?
that i paid for it, downloaded it but the download failed me for some time. Audible does NOT LISTEN, BUT KEEP FORCE-FEEDING me with irrelevant questions. And keep charging for credits before the old ones are spent, and the Audible account closed because I refuse to buy new ones.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, when the download is ok, this is a perfect listen for a long car drive

Any additional comments?
I am a Mac-usaer, but for the time being I use a PC. I bought 20 credits at the time, and at one point I had unused credits, Audible added me 20 new, of which I paid for all but some was just removed.. Audible pay shit, and does not care for employees or listeners. I am ready to pay 1€ more per audiobook if that would improve working conditions for narrators and employees, and also work over Audibles web-pages. they suck
