The Mind is a Razorblade by Max Booth III
"I enjoyed the hell out of this one. One of the more unique voices I have come across in a long time. Booth takes you on a trippy ride into a world I would not like to be living in. The protagonist suffers from memory loss and Booth makes you turn..." Read more of this review »
The Mind is a Razorblade by Max Booth III
"Booth has strapped his hero to an excellent "noir" voice here, but although noir also has its share of amnesiacs waking up with guns, corpses, and mysterious adversaries, first-person examples of the genre tend to have a more jaded, weary feel to..." Read more of this review »
The Mind is a Razorblade by Max Booth III
"If you're on the fence about buying THE MIND IS A RAZORBLADE, you gotta understand the following points:

1) It's a little frustrating at first, because everybody in the novel seems to connect the dot, except you. The novel is meant to challenge you..." Read more of this review »

A bizarre, twisty, mystery that for about ninety percent of the book made no sense at all. Told in first person from a man who lost his memory we are led through the streets (of some city, I'm not really sure) where people are rioting and surgeon mon ...more

It's not a bad book really. A typical "grocery store" thriller with a wizard PI instead of a regular PI. Could have been half as long as it was. The killer is revealed halfway through and it's no surprise at all. Then there's mostly filler to round i ...more

“This is your life and its ending one moment at a time.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club

Chuck Palahniuk
“The unreal is more powerful than the real. Because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. Because its only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles. Wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on. If you can change the way people think. The way they see themselves. The way they see the world. You can change the way people live their lives. That's the only lasting thing you can create.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Choke
