Gravity's Rainbow (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition) review

Posted : 7 years, 5 months ago on 12 May 2010 04:10 (A review of Gravity's Rainbow (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition))

As difficult as it is fucking epic, a meandering and often hallucinatory feast of literary bliss. If you're looking for a leisurely afternoon romp, look elsewhere. But if you're looking for a rewarding and challenging read, then step right up and lose yourself in Pynchon's vast and complex universe.

Absolutely brilliant. The last sentence gave me chills.

Less Than Zero review

Posted : 7 years, 5 months ago on 12 May 2010 04:06 (A review of Less Than Zero)

Ellis masterfully explores a nihilistic teenage wasteland, filled to the brim with cocaine and despair. Through startlingly realistic (and simplistic) imagery, he crafts an unnervingly bleak tale of apathy, channeling the voices of Camus and Salinger.
The unblinkingly casual narrative makes it all the more horrifying.

Black Hole review

Posted : 7 years, 5 months ago on 12 May 2010 04:05 (A review of Black Hole)

Erotic, yet nauseating. Hopeful, yet bleak.
One of the most human graphic novels I've encountered, reads as good as it looks. Burns' distinct illustrative style in stark black and white creates a duality of comfort and fear. Visceral and hallucinatory, perhaps hypnotic, there is a constant pairing of warm, sensual familiarity and inimical sickening estrangement.
A relatively quick read, but leaves you thinking long afterward.
