I lived in LA in the late 80's and I guess I was traveling with a different crowd, though I think I was aware that a lot of people were doing a lot of drugs, and I just had a general distain for those types. He did really well with the vernacular and the fashion, and I cringe to think that people talked like that. The book overall was incredibly disturbing, and left me with a sense that humans can be a horror. I loved the metaphors of the monstrous behavior and the tumbleweeds, and the desperation and bleakness inside the complete detachment of the characters was cringe-worthy. I am interested to see what is done with the movie though I fear there will be certain parts that I will not be able to stomach. Overall a dark and disturbing book that will leave you wanting to give your brain a really long shower.
