Jason I made a comment earlier defending the "artistry" of the book, but I deleted that. I thought about it awhile and I also think the character is really repulsive. So much so that I don't want to defend the artistry. So overall, I agree with your review.

Becca Becca I just wrote a similar review and then read yours. I couldn't agree more that Joe Matt is repulsive. I can't think of a single redeeming quality.

message 3: by Roman (new)

Roman Stadtler Exactly. That's the point; he doesn't have redeeming qualities, and you're not supposed to like him. That's a theme throughout Matt's work, though it's especially strong here, when his character is full on stuck in arrogant selfish young assholeness. He gains a few, arguably redeeming qualities as he ages.
