Incredible piece of work from a legend. Vivid mind-bending imagery. Writing that is non-nonsensical, purple & dated in the best way possible.

Some section were boring. Some sections had me asking, "Is this racist?"

Portions are a slog to get through. Large sections devoted to long descriptions of lineage that don't feel important to story.

Beautiful art that becomes abstract madness at times, in a good way. Story is somewhat interesting / prescient.

Often offensive. Sometimes boring. Occasionally corny.

A little too much pontificating.

A completely horrifying look at bored, young males. Very prescient of today's world as well. Soccer hooligans from the late-80s are basically just today's MAGA chuds.

A little too long.

The author's fictionalized dialogue between people was beyond corny.
