An amazing book and one I highly recommend to those who are prepared to read and understand it.
This over-intellectualism, however, is useful in keeping his opium-related narratives grounded and understandable for the reader who has not had similar experiences.
Heritage/LEC had a lot of fun in developing an intelligent, dignified, and yet evocative design for de Quincey's classic.
