I tried to keep an open mind about the narrator, I really did. All I wanted to do was focus on the substance of the book. Unfortunately, I couldn't. If I said the narrator didn't ruin this book for me I'd be lying.

Would you consider the audio edition of Cosmic Trigger I to be better than the print version?
I'm a huge RAW fan, and love this book SO much that it would be tough for me to NOT like the audio book. I reread it every few years, and listening to it is a whole new experience!
What did you like best about this story?
It takes you right into "Chapel Perilous" and transforms your world view starting from page 1.
Have you listened to any of Oliver Senton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
He does a delightfully bad NY/Philly/Boston/Grouch Marx accent, with British pronunciations. It's a little distracting, but he has so much enthusiasm for the material it is only a minor setback. In the end, probably more fun than a straight read.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
yes! but it's worth savoring and relistening to...
Any additional comments?

A wonderful journey through the 1960/70s counter occulture featuring Tim Leary, Alan Watts, Ken Campbell and The Illuminates. RAW describes his personal progression through magick and conciousness changing practice with heart and humour. A great read.
I don't pretend to understand all of what was said nor do I believe the parts I did. A stunning, thought provoking and sometimes sad book.
Can't wait for 2&3.
