    O'Brien makes us care

    Never has a book or character so completely broken me down emotionally. I have never encountered a character who brought hope, sadness, sympathy, and anger all wrapped into one. O'Brien creates a character that lives in all of us, although we may not admit it, he gives us hope of acheving true love in the most dire circumstances. O'Brien's ability to creat such a beautiful love between two disenchanted and lost souls is a reminder that the world lost a truly great writer

    As Good As The Movie

    The thing about Leaving Las Vegas is that it doesn't drift. Just as the lead character is set on drinking himself to death in Vegas, so the plot thickens with tastefulness until that last drink. And I say this although I am not an imbiber. Ranks right up there with Heinrich Boll's The Clown and Camus' The Fall.

    Honest determination, honest love

    One of the most brilliant stories ever written. A saga of unqualified acceptence, and a magnificent character study of what is to be an alcholic. O'Brien captures perfectly the heart of what humanity's two strongest emotions are-love and determination. Beyond alcholism, the book uniquely reveals the gripping conflict between the integrity of oneself and love for another. It's a wonderful novel, and I cannot recommend it enough.
