5.0 / 5.0
Don't listen to the other reviewers on this site. To quote Rolling Stone, "An ethereally beautiful book".
1.0 / 5.0
This book was one of the most disturbing and incoherent pieces of literary garbage that I have ever read. It was a pornographic display of fourteen year old boys containing obscene homosexual descriptions that I did not need to read in my life time. The only reason why I finished reading this book was because I was desperately trying to figure out what it was about. At the conclusion, I still had no idea. Maybe this was a bad Burroughs book to start with, but I guarantee that I won't be reading any more.
1.0 / 5.0
It is rare for me to quit a book, but this one is so bad, I didn't even make it past the 20th page. My first and last Burroughs book.
