To me, this was a story about reflection, a man reviewing his life in an honest and forthright manner. It doesn’t read like a man revealing his past simply to justify his youthful indiscretions. Instead, I sense a man purging his soul of his own perceived faults, possibly in hopes of forgiving himself. There are moments of fond recollections, those childhood memories we all have of a simpler life, but there is a greater focus on the more painful memories of drug abuse. There are passages that ring of pure regret, and I could sense the author revealing his past with an open heart as well as a remorseful spirit. The author deserves a great deal of credit for his willingness to honestly recount a difficult and troubled past in order for him to share his appreciation for all that he currently has.

The Days of Babylon: An Autobiography of a Former Stoner by Timothy L. Nix details events that are sometimes funny, other times tragic, and most wonderful of all, how the author met his wife and soul-mate. They've had some quite interesting adventures together, and I recommend this book especially for its brutal, no-holds-barred honesty.

The Days of Babylon...
From adolescents to manhood,this book is about the everyday trials and errors of a young boy growing up in Chicago and later in Alabama.
It is a well written book in down to earth language.
I thoroughly enjoyed it. It has some adventure and mystery in it. It is written in a way that keep one reading just to see what will happen next. Some of the author's experiences I can relate to, so I believe this is a true story.
I highly recommend this book, its interesting and entertaining.
