    Description

    Recently adapted for the screen, this now-classic collection of 10 stories from the author of Resuscitation of a Hanged Man and Angels is narrated by a young man, a recovering alcoholic and heroin addict whose dependencies have led him to petty crime, cruelty, betrayal, and various kinds of loss.

    Some books are better read.

    The elliptical poetic nature of this short novel make following it in audio format nearly impossible. A great read (and a great movie) but not a great listen.

    Beautifully written but

    It’s dark and disconcerting. It reads very much as a stream of consciousness instead of a coherent narrative. That being said it is extremely well written. Denis Johnson had a beautiful way with words and Will Patton is good. He often sounds like he’s losing his voice, but that part of his charm, I guess. There are very few redeemable elements about the characters in this book.

    Bizarre different but good

    Amazing imagery outstanding writing strange stories that somehow end up feeling whole at the end

    Exquisite in content and composition

    I have not been more moved by piece of literature in the last 30 years as I am with Denis Johnson's Jesus' Son. I am compelled to find everything he has ever written and devour it, most likely more than one read.

    Poetic

    The life of the scum of the earth (for lack of a better term). The forgotten, unseen people of the world. Dirty. Exposed poetically. This book is not for everyone. It definitely has absolutely nothing to do with Jesus if you were hoping for that. In the beginning I considered the descriptive writing overdone but by the middle I appreciated the writing style.

    Beautiful

    I love this book, and the performance of it was beautiful. I’m definitely sold on audiobooks after this listen.

    Wonderful Collection

    Jesus' Son is, bar none, one of the best short story collections I have read in years. And comparable to the writing, Will Patton's narration brings even more life to the stories. Recommended.

    Hallelujah

    Jesus’ Son is a great collection of writing. There’s an overlap of themes and content, but each story and character has some differences that make the short book feel denser and not just some breezy listen. Enjoy

    Where's Jesus?

    Not sure what to make of this collection. Like Pineapple Express that's actually relevant and decent.

    narrator was good. story line was pretty terrible.

    struggled to get through it. they story was hard to follow and I struggled to see the point. never ended up finishing it and was disappointed with the purchase. don't waste your money.
