If you could sum up The Lost Weekend in three words, what would they be?
Realistic, frightening, and compassionate.
What other book might you compare The Lost Weekend to and why?
No comparisons come to mind. If The Days of Wine and Roses was available as an audiobook maybe that would provide a pale comparison. I consider this to be the greatest work ever written about an alcoholic.
What does Donald Corren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He nails it! He is the protagonist of the story. Flawlessly narrated.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, but too long and too intense for one sitting.
Any additional comments?
I was so excited when I saw this book finally available as an audiobook and for once it did not disappoint in the least. It surpassed my expectations and I will listen again soon. Thanks to Audible for an impeccable production of this masterpiece. I enjoyed every minute of it.

Was cringeworthy to follow the exploits of the main character who is an alcoholic. I found myself very wrapped up in the story . The narrator is very very good. Great performance : dynamic , engaging , and did various voices well
