“Here was the secret of happiness, about which philosophers disputed for so many ages, at once discovered; happiness might now be bought for a penny, and carried in the waistcoat-pocket; portable ecstasies might be had corked up in a pint-bottle; and peace of mind sent by the mail.” THOMAS DE QUNICEY
Confessions of an English Opium-Eater is a graphic, honest, autobiographical account written by Thomas De Quincey, about his laudanum addiction and its profound effect on his life. Confessions was the first major work De Quincey published and the one which won him lasting fame. This intensely riveting audiobook edition Is therefore a must for all those interested in the pharmacological arts, altered states, the pitfalls of addiction and the age old quest for expanded consciousness.

    " De Quincey makes a pretty big deal out of opium not being as bad as people think and then undermines his stance with some pretty sordid drug tales. Still a pretty interesting piece of autobiography. "

    " Interesting, and I'm definitely glad I finally read it, but it really wasn't as exciting as I thought it might be. de Quincey manages to make being an opium addict sound quite mundane. "

    " Getting high long before Irvine Welsh's 'Trainspotting' and Nikki Sixx's 'The Heroin Diaries'. "

    " Very interesting guy with a very interesting tale to tell. The life story was a little dull, but the tales of being hooked on opium were fun. "

    " Well, I'm reading the ebook, and it's Project Gutenberg, which I don't see in the list for this title, so I'm choosing this one by default; too lazy to "create a new book." "

    " Like a fruity red wine on a winters evening. One should also be sporting some Lionel Jeffries facial hair when reading. Very poetic, evocative, beautiful.
    Something compelling about reading a book of this vintage on a mobile phone (via DailyLit). Holmes next, Cumberbatch would approve. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lisa | 6/30/2010

    " Read this for a very specialized English class - the literature of addiction. Avoid if at all possible. "

    " I really enjoyed this book. It feels honest and I loved the mad digressions! "
