  • Reveling in degradation of humanity Apr 21, 2011
    by Alyssa A

    Johnson takes his main character through a series of events that do not serve to produce a character arch but rather just snapshots without continuity. He is demoralizing, degrading, and depressing - without redemption! The point is not that there is hope, or that there is no hope, rather there is no point. The reader follows the character through his drug induced stupor, with the character doing the sorts of things that druggies do and think is clever, but it is not. This book is a celebration of the lowest common denominator, without direction.
