Less Than Zero Review

Less Than Zero - Bret Easton Ellis

Less Than Zero is an affecting ridealong in a car full of coke-addled rich kids. The ending is properly shocking. I was, as was intended, thoroughly disgusted, as I'm sure you will be too.

I didn't like a single character. The book has all the appeal of a trainwreck that causes a chemical spill at your local kindergarten. You don't read this book for fun. You read it to justify your hatred of humanity and all things wealthy.

Christian Rummel does a fantastic job with the audiobook.

In summation: The stars are for the writing and the fact that the book accomplishes what it sets out to do. It means to sicken, and it does. *slow clap*

Final Judgment: Kill 'em all and let Tom Cruise sort them out.
