Publisher's Summary

Degrees of Separation was originally penned by a squadron of Black Sabbath fans at a Steely Dan show. The pages that weren't used for rolling special cigarettes were retrieved from the floor of the concert hall, and then (barely) translated into this book here.
Mystical. Weird. Hilarious. It's a tale of idiots. It's a tale of life. A dumb cast of characters you have to see to believe. The surgeon on an acid trip. The lazy Uncle who fuses with his favorite chair. The boy who comes back from the dead for revenge. Bootsy Collins. What do these people have in common? About as much as you have with Kevin Bacon.
Witness how the actions of one can affect the lives on many in these Degrees of Separation. Get ready for a downward spiral through hell. Through beauty and nightmares, through comedy and tragedy. Where is this all headed? Is this the end?

Outer Limits meets Pulp Fiction

This book was different from the typical narrative and story structure, which was a nice change from the norm. The humor and strangeness might not be for everyone but I enjoyed it. The narration was very fitting to the setting and feel of the book. Voices, accents, and inflections were all performed fabulously.

If you are looking for a standard story structure with a beginning, middle, end, plot, resolution... this book is not for you. If you are looking for random strangeness all tied together in odd ways, then give this book a try!

I requested and received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.

Buckle up

Right on the cover "Like starting off an acid trip with a pitcher of Red Bull" the tone was set and my expectations were clear. Obviously, this was going to be similar to a typical night with 15-20 of my closest friends in that tiny one bedroom apartment I shared with my crazy ass boyfriend when I was 20. Similar to the outrageous ramblings of my favorite people who had over-indulged in...well, whatever...you know what I'm talking about. Dark, funny, sad-ish, and incoherent...it's all here.

There's not much else I can share about the storyline because it was quite simply erratic. Was there a storyline? It was entertaining without a damn storyline.

Disclaimer: If you never enjoyed those nights you only sort of remember with those crazy guys in that dumpy apartment doing those things you wouldn't tell your mom about then you will not enjoy this book. If you did - cheers!

I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator. This did not influence my review in any way.
