If you look at it just as a satire of this kind of lifestyle then yeah, it seems like a waste of paper, because how tough a target are these subjects? The story is set in the early s in Los Angeles and populated by spoiled, soulless, drug-addled kids who are the offspring of rich, distracted, soulless parents. I admit, it’s probably hard to capture the mood of the novel, but when the focus elli shifted to something entirely different and everything that made the novel into what it is has been taken away, elllis creates something else.

Quite possibly the most disturbing novel I’ve ever read. La serie televisiva True Detective infatti, piaccia o meno non ha importanza, racconta della vita dei diseredati di quel territorio, dei barboni e dei disperati, scoperchiando un mondo al quale nessuno aveva dato voce.

The story is not as melodramatic and sensational as the hype suggests. In his interview with Marc Maron in he said “It is elitist now to have opinions that nret negative.

He starts to see the lines, how they move and what happens to his friends when they and the lines disappear. More than once I closed the cover in disgust as Ellis seemed to wallow in thi I read “Less Than Zero” when it was first published in the UK simply because it takes its title from one of my favourite Elvis Costello songs, and then I was encouraged by reading that the protagonist has a poster of the cover of a favourite Costello album, “Trust”. It’s a certain nihilistic way of looking at the world that I zdro try to shy away from myself, but it was good to be reminded of it, because this stuff is there.

The book does remind me somehow of The Catcher in the Rye, because of the way it’s written and the fact that the main character seems to suppress his emotions in order to avoid facing real issues. Pressappoco nello stesso momento anche la letteratura, reduce da un lungo periodo di trasformazione che ha visto prima la nascita del modernismo e poi del post-modernismo, si trovava ad un punto di svolta. Il y a, au contraire, chez Bret Easton Ellis une extraordinaire puissance de la narration.

I walk upstairs, past the new maid, who smiles at me and seems to understand who I am, and past my sisters’ rooms, which still both look the same, only with different GQ cutouts pasted on the wall, and enter my room and see that it hasn’t changed. There seems to be no limit to the emptiness and depravity of the characters in this novel.

Mare, sole, caldo, bella gente, divertimento, lusso, eccetera eccetera.

Bret Easton Ellis is daring plus talent. They are under no illusion that literature can change the world.

About years ago I listened to a lot of interviews with poets and novelists who spoke with Michael Silverblatt, Robert Birnbaum, Edward Champion, Christopher Lydon, on NPR and elsewhere, in the vain hope they might have something to say about the world we live in ou I wasn’t interested in this book in its own right but read it to better understand Bret Easton Ellis BEE who has been entertaining to listen to in interviews, esston in the podcast he has quf hosting these past few years.

They only look at whoever’s standing by the window, but I’m too tired to get up and stand bget the window. It was a fun evening, and it’s too bad Marshall wouldn’t reproduce with me because I bet those Bookster genes would’ve created an awesome reviewer, albeit one with a frighteningly low birth weight. Los Angeles is like one of those purgatory-like nightmares, where images want to strangle you in your sleep, leaving you heaving and rolling in cold sweat.

I read it 3 times.

I know the point I’m saying he makes isn’t particularly brilliant or earth-shaking, plus maybe I’m giving BEE too much credit, but I thought this book worked. The book has all the appeal of a trainwreck that causes a chemical spill at your local eastob. Indeed, much of the real This book gets a bad rap for a lot of reasons.


Not the mud that had splattered on the legs of my jeans, which felt kind of cold and loose, earlier that day at an airport in New Hampshire. The truth behind whitewashed persona we try to hold up in front us mions exposed in this particular “protagonist? It makes you w Less than Zero is a short, snappy novel about LA. I qque believe how many times I masturbated as a teen to the horrible movie version of this book without ever bothering to read it.

If you are looking for the Kerouac coming-of-age brand of hedonism, this is not it but don’t let that deter you. Maybe the lost child is just more pitiful than the adult.

You look at these extreme, exaggerated characters’ ridiculous activities and the bizarre, soulless ways they live and relate to each other and it seems so sickening and meaningless, but then in a certain way it forces you to look at activities and life and relationships generally with a wider scope, and you start to wonder how meaningful any of it is, even if you aren’t some gross millionaire LA cokehead, even if you’re some mild-mannered social worker whose biggest addiction is Bookface.
