The Assault on Tony's ? John O'Brien
So you actually probably know of John
O'Brien because he wrote Leaving Las Vegas. This book
is an earlier work that was finished up by O'Brien's sister. It's
crazy. It's about drunks trying to hold their bar during a revolution/riot
& is a weird take on the post-apocalyptic idea. I think the best
part of the book is when the waitress is thinking about the things she
does to systematically eliminate everyplace in the world from being someplace
she feels comfortable. Unsurprisingly parts of the book about drinking
are incredibly accurate & delusional.
Blindness ? (I can't remember the author's
I didn't think I'd be able to complete
this book. It is the most depressing book I've ever read & the
translator doesn't follow standard grammar rules & that's fairly annoying.
It's about an epidemic of blindness that leads to the end or at least a
change to civilization. I think it's probably the only fictional
book I've read that's made me feel nauseous
Kiss & Make Up ? Gene Simmons
It's interesting to read how someone who
admittedly is more talented at marketing than music managed to build the
american icons that Kiss has become. He's at least as pragmatic as
he is creepy.
