Sounds like the perfect recipe for disaster, doesn’t it? Their existences are the quintessential eighties lifestyle revolving around materialism, consumerism and excess. Commentaires client les plus utiles faston Amazon.

But what an intimately revealing, tender portrayal of youth. 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, particularly in the podcast he has been hosting these past few years.

Het was een genot om te lezen. Coke, omnipresent blondes, glimmering turquoise swimming pools, dark silhouettes of palm trees rustling in the soft night air. My decision to read this in English turned out to be a good idea, by the way.

Coming to my house, Blair has to stop the car since there are these five workmen lifting the remains of palm trees that have fallen during the winds and placing the leaves and pieces of dead bark in a big red truck, and Blair smiles again. Moind think it achieves something very difficult, that is, to be touching while at the same time being extremely nihilistic.


She stops at my house and the gate’s open and I get out of the car, surprised to feel how dry and hot it is.

Ecco dunque che il tipico abitante di Los Angeles si trova a passare la maggior parte del proprio tempo libero sulle strade. Less Than Zero is one of the few novels I’ve read recently that really effected me emotionally.

The narrator, Clay, takes us on an insider’s tour of ‘s L. I found all other characters in the book to be insufferable and I only feel revulsion towards the whole lot of them. The word “Trust” hovering over his head, and his sunglasses, one lens red, the other blue, pushed down past the ridge of his nose so that you can see his eyes, which are slightly off center. Not the fact that I’m eighteen and it’s December and the ride on the plane had been rough and the couple from Santa Barbara, who were sitting across from me in first class, had gotten pretty drunk.

Not the warm winds, which seem to propel elkis car down the empty asphalt freeway, or the faded smell of marijuana which still faintly permeates Blaire’s car. At first you expect one of those stories where rich teenagers do drugs, party and waste their time. It’s drinking and doing drugs and sleeping around.

You can definitely see the development of his writing comparing this to Psycho. And the more time Clay spends among his peers, the more he realizes how isolating this lifestyle can be. I have to remember that next time, because Ellis can write about boredom and vapidity zeor a way that leaves you disoriented and mesmerized.


To me, though, this completely deadening, unappealing, unglamorous litany of friends’ names and routes driven and zedo visited and drugs taken was so skillfully done because it should have been so boring but was somehow strangely mesmerizing.

And yet the same analgesic symptoms of over-exposure find him nevertheless. But then if you start thinking about glass houses and stones, for me that’s where it gets good. Gli spazi aperti poi, nel quotidiano significano ore ed ore di traffico su strade immense.

I’m jealous that she got to discuss it in a class because I think I would have gotten more out of it that I didn’t even realize. He might not be the Julian of the novel, but he’s the Julian that everyone should see, even if it’s just for that tennis court scene alone.

Even my short review feels lifeless as I type and that is because Less Than Zero has accomplished what it was meant to do.

The Village Voice blurb on the back of my copy calls Less Than Zero “sexy and sassy,” which has to be one of the most bizarre characterizations imaginable: It’s definitely not for the lighthearted, though.

I have read Ellis’ Glamorama and qud struck by the biting satire and astute social commentary. Eastoj was nothing like I had ever read before, and I just pushed it into the back of my mind and let it simmer in there.
