Blech.
At the risk of sounding little-old-ladyish, I am SOOO tired of books that read like a laundry list of abuse of self and others through drugs and violence.
If in real life you want to sit in a corner and quietly drink yourself to death or smoke pot until your lungs rot out, you go right ahead. STORIES, however, have an arc, and for me, they need to show something redeeming about humanity, if even only that one person who was trying to drink or smoke himself to death did something that bettered the human race just a teeny tiny bit.
"Pure Sunshine" doesn't manage that. It's interested in showing someone who is fiendishly, possessively ignorant, flushing his life down the cosmic crapper.
Not my cup of tea.
