    Flambe' a la Cynicism

    Stream of consciousness? Yes. And a plethora of redundant reflections on the sad plight of the lost American dream. Going beyond that theme proves the rub for at least the first two hundred pages of this book. Illusions, futility, absurdity, mendacity and the entire hodge-podge bewilderment experienced in city life is well related in this 'sequel'. However, the author devolves into a one note critic as he fails to propel the protagonist into alternative mind sets. Perhaps beating the proverbial dead horse is necessary to jar the consciousness of stubborn, one track minds. Miller unwittingly becomes one and the same on perhaps a slightly more informed, introspective level. Rare emotional insights are offered in extremely evocative and colorful language.

    Put Down the Book to Get Up and Live

    This book moved me to ecstasy. If you are one of those poor souls at the end of their rope, that have lost all hope and faith in life, then read Henry Miller. Through his words, he has the power to instill in the reader a fierce desire to live fully--to truly live, meaning not going through the paces of dead men sun up sun down from cradle to grave, but to break the chains of idiocy and trust in the flow of things. If you feel the need to put down the book to get up and live, then you're catching Miller's drift.

    Incredibly honest and entertaining

    By combining his insightful commentaries with his bizzare life, Miller makes you examine humanity and hypocrisy without blinders. Hilarious, provocative, and dark, it's very hard to put down once you have picked it up.
