This is rather a neat summary of the ways in which Augustine draws on Neoplatonism in Confessions

There is a new book on Augustine's confessions that looks promising. This review also helps to make the main preoccupations of Confessions a bit clearer:

This is a very clear and useful introduction to Confessions:
