Books of this nature age well with me I keep thinking about what happened what Ellis might have meant I find it fascinating what people walk away with from this and American Psycho It seems rather obvious to me that this book is not just about spoiled rich drug addicts wasting away while taking some of their world with them The characters actions specifically their lack of action says so much for the state of the times in this book for LA for American culture all of which I find maybe even relevant today The fact that people can walk away from this book thinking it is only about drugs that they did not get it or they thought it pointless just makes me sad Ellis is an extremely talented writer His writing is deceptive and layered The best way for me to convey why I so far love his books is to relate what I think when I read them I wonder what his characters say about me why I am able to relate and what my reactions to what happens reflect about me About LA a place I hope never to return to and other such cities with sterile environments and filthy underbellies places where people come together to consume and waste About the indifference of youth and American culture About relationships and detatchment self abuse and self worth vanity and denial What Ellis writes feels real no matter how awful or horrific That is truly frightening This book is especially disturbing to me because the youth protrayed are now everywhere no longer only the rich or confined to the cities Indifference spreads with each generationThe main character has zero emotional attachments to his world his family and friends He has desensitized himself into acceptance When he faces things in the book that shock or bother him his true self shines through Three scenes really shocked me and that is all I will say about that since I did not see them coming at allSome of the most disturbing parts of this book are simple comments made by Clay s family Family should protect and it is little wonder how Clay started on his current path Clay and his friends are at that age when they are becoming adults and are now responsible for their actions than ever before I am a firm believer that people instinctively know basic rights from wrongs and when a youth becomes an adult and chooses a knowing wrong then they may be close to evil Ellis characters choose evil and let the guilt run off instead of settling in I think the book tried a little too hard towards the end but it worked so I bumped 4 stars to 5 stars The typical use of brand names music and posh scenes cities and clubs and film and music all shine through as in American Psycho though maybe not as strong here This is an incredibly sad book about as one character describes a beautiful boy who makes no effort and though I am having problems writing coherently summing up my thoughts and reactions in an organized manner I know I could ramble all night about this book and still be slightly confused as to why I like it so much

FREE DOWNLOAD Less Than Zero ✓ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Cuando se publicó Menos ue cero en Estados Unidos se produjo un inesperado fenómeno la primera novela de un autor de 20 años fue saludada por la crítica como El guardián entre el centeno de los años 80 el libro en el ue se reconocía una generación ue lo convirtió rapidísimamente en un best sellerMenos ue cero ue es también el. This book seems boring and shallow and reading it gives me an anesthetized hollow detached feeling that I would not describe as entirely pleasantAnd yet I cannot seem to stop and whenever I have to I become very anxious to return to it as uickly as I can Its appeal is no less powerful for being difficult to pinpoint or explainThis experience reminds me of something but I m not sure what Oh yeah I know Bright Lights Big City Way better though so far I love all the characters clothes Okay so I really really liked this a lot though I totally get why a lot of people didn t I must say I find many reactions to it perplexing 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 to me this is one of least sassy least sexy books I can think of might tie with Marilynne Robinson s Gilead for that prize However maybe that s just because I got confused and missed the point as often happens I mean a lot of what I kept thinking while reading this was about how tragically I was born in the wrong time and why didn t I ever get to see Fear and X in LA in their heyday and I m pretty sure this was not really what I was supposed to take away from this novelMy experience of this book was no doubt colored by an unexpected plate of shrimp coincidence of life and fiction that I cannot expand upon adeuately on this family website I will say that I think this is the perfect cocaine novel because it so perfectly epitomizes the soul sucking hollowness and numb angst at the core of this kind of lifestyle and drug use or so I ve heardThe reason why I thought this was so good though and what I m surprised no one else on here seems to have felt was that while in one way this was such a total period piece specifically criticizing the materialistic hedonism of the eighties or whatever to me it transcended that I seem to be in the minority in feeling this way and without that sense that there was a larger point this novel would ve been just the cheap trick many other readers accuse it of being To me though this completely deadening unappealing unglamorous litany of friends names and routes driven and restaurants visited and drugs taken was so skillfully done because it should have been so boring but was somehow strangely mesmerizing With a few missteps towards the end I found the whole thing with the friend and the pimp maudlin silly and totally off pitch from the rest of the novel everything is presented in a flat deadpan way that makes it both so horrific and yet comprehensible I never wondered why this kid was doing the things that he did and that was where the book worked for me because it s what created a kind of bridge to other lives including my ownIf Less Than Zero s just a criticism of spoiled zonked out rich kids there s not much of a point to this book but if you start thinking about your own life and life in general then for me that s where it transcends its subject matter 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 Like this character s life is obviously pointless but really let s be honest how much of a point is there to anythingDoes that any make sense It did to me 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 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 But then if you start thinking about glass houses and stones for me that s where it gets good It s a certain nihilistic way of looking at the world that I usually try to shy away from myself but it was good to be reminded of it because this stuff is there People are really like this I mean they are and they aren t you knowReading this book also reminded me of that time I went out on a date with my formerly Angeleno Bookster Marshall When he finally came to New York I was dismayed to learn that in fact he d been joking about his willingness to breed with me but after I got over that initial disappointment we scored a gram and spent a very pleasant evening going up and down in the elevator of the Flatiron building arguing over Elvis Costello and American Psycho and gossiping about our mutual Booksters 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

This novel irritated me but at the same time I couldn t take my hands off it I so clearly recognized the hardened apathy reflected in the eyes of Clay He is a young man immobile paralyzed by indecision slowly rotting as he waits for whatever doom comes his way His problem is not that he doesn t know what he wants but rather the ability to want has been lost in him His circumstances which usually is being driven by the person is rather moving of its own accord and he is aboard not steering but watching indifferently as his fate is sealed without any resistance from him which could have prevented the crash he might be moving towards It is a disease this disregard and it is terminal He is alienated from himself locked inside a wall of nothingness and thus also unreachable to those around him He is resigned to his life a third person looking at his own body unconcerned with its wellbeing going with the flow only a voyeuristic sort of fulfillment in his gut And as the days go by he is disappearing and until the day that nothing remains and his invisibility is deemed permanent Less Than Zero is the story of a university student who comes home and discovers that there never was such a thing as a home for him Clay was born of a rich family in Los Angeles His grandparents own hotel chains his father is a big shot in Hollywood he lives in a mansion in Beverly Hills all his friends are high society people It is apparent that he was raised in an environment that fostered dysfunction an environment so enad by its own wealth and glamor that it kills off any other function it has to offer And so fresh off his freshman year from the relatively uiet place of New Hampshire he goes home for summer vacation to kill time until classes start Uncertain that there is anything else to do he goes on a psychedelic romp and engages in all sorts of debaucheries from snorting cocaine by the minute gender indifferent acts of sexual deprivation not to mention other sort of drugs liuor and all the twisted novelties Hollywood has to offer moving from party to party in search for some unreachable form of satisfaction He goes through all this in a kind of painful stupor trying to feel something anything while balancing his rocky relationship with his girlfriend Blair and trying to make sense of his best friend Julian Amidst all that is happening there lingers a dreadful clarity a soberness that can only be found as one dwells in the most chaotic of places like a man in the middle of a bacchanal realizing that he feels awful A lot of people will read this novel and hate it A few however will sense an unsettling familiarity in its hollow pages There needs to be a certain disposition for someone to truly appreciate this novel a disposition so readily seen in the addled millennial Those who can understand Clay when he says Nothing Nothing makes me happy I like nothing Because as a book this is infected with the same disease that Clay is suffering from an emptiness seeping away the lifeblood of its unfocused words This novel doesn t know what it wants It reminds me of a certain passage from its body that goes But this road doesn t go anywhere I told him That doesn t matter What does I asked after a little while Just that we re on it dude he said There is no other purpose to this story It moves resigned to its writing with no higher aim or message Ellis then a 21 year old writes his work and in his prose he injects a virus that permeates an enigmatic lifelessness a wayward languor that eats away the vital soulIn the end in order to not feel depressed I shall borrow a line from Yukio Mishima something I read I few days ago that pierced me deeply I dream of a moment when without my asking my actions will betray completely this part of me that asks for nothing Maybe Clay in one of his reveries had this thought Maybe you ve had it too Maybe then it s not too late for us
