This one's not for the squeamish readers, but I like a dark read every now and then so I really enjoyed it. The story and characters pull you in, but maybe what I loved most was the author's commentary of how crazed society has become from too much junk food, junkier TV and the rabid (and undeserved) worship of celebrities, most of whom have zero talent and basically get famous (and rich!) by exploiting themselves and others. Highly recommend this novel if you appreciate a deep plot (you see what I did there, right?) and are sick of the whole "reality" TV culture.

It's definitely dark, but once you get past the premise, it's quite funny.   Unfortunately, some of the characters seem to just get tossed aside as a convenience.  Can't think of how to do anything more with this character? Just kill him off.  The climax feels rushed, and then the book ends -  there's not a whit of denouement..

    Hard to make up my mind about this one. The writing is good, but the story is awful, and the ending abrupt. Parts are excessively drawn out and slow, but others are too sketchy. I had a hard time getting into the book and had to force myself to keep reading; I don't like to give up on a book once I start. It did get better for a while, then I disliked it again and couldn't wait to be done, and then it got a bit better. Overall, I would say don't waste your time.
