Confessions of an English Opium-Eater by Thomas De Quincey (1785-1859) was first published anonymously in 1821 in the London Magazine and was published in book form a year later. A revised edition was published in 1846. It is an account by the author of his addiction to laudanum and the effects it had on his life. This recording presents an abridged version of the 1856 edition.

Flawless narration of an interesting account. The ending seems faulty as though the whole story had not finished. Very odd.
The narrative of his difficulties as a young man were very sad.
He brought the book to life. A brilliant performance.
I think someone should check to see if the whole book has been downloaded. Awful ending as though it is incomplete.
