This is the first free book I have tried. It was horrible. The first third of the book was not too bad, but it went downhill after that. The author makes no attempt to be coherent, and seems to think this is valid style of writing. A weak attempt at some sort of Gonzo journalism that fails miserably.

Enjoyed reading this fiction though some time wondered if the author was smoking some funny stuff as he wrote it. The ending could have been a littlle better,but it wirked with the overall of the story. I recokmend it for anyone with an open mind.

A fast mover, but, too much sex, gore and nasty language. You don'T need that to sell a book. But the guy on guy sex and the dope made me jusr close it up and stop reading.

I found it bizarre and confusing but I had to put it down at odd places because of work. It was easier to keep track when I got further into the book. In the end I liked it. Not my usual.

I do not care for gorilla journalism. The author likes to play with the readers mind, and show how smart he thinks he is.

I absolutely adore this book. It's easily the best story I've ever read - my style down to a T. It did slow down in a few chapters, but I'm not the type of reeader to expect perfection. Quite the opposite, actually. Anyhow, in other reviews, it's quite easy to tell that some readers were thrown for a loop by the abstract themes and general "I-do-what-I-want" style of writing that Mezcal showcases. Personally, I can not get enough! It's a much-needed breath of fresh air for those like myself who want an in-depth story that has stronger themes and more macabre ideas than anything you'll find in a common bookstore. Also, some might simply keep in mind that if you're surfing through the metaphorical shelves of guerilla fiction, you absolutely CAN'T jump in expecting Twilight. Something this strong and abstract is bound to confuse and generally piss off anyone who won't take the time to read between the lines and try to obtain a higher understanding of the literature. Moxie Mezcal's writing is, in my opinion, work of the elite. I, myself, took time to read the book at least twiceover so that I could make higher inferences and understand every minute detail, and I imagine that's just the type of reader who will fall in love with this book. And, contrary to popular opinion, I LOVED the ending of Concrete Underground. Dylan Maxwell is one of my favorite fictional characters, and I both loved and hated the things he did. But I found it a perfectly suitable ending for everyone. Not preferable, simply suitable. Maxwell came and went in an absolute masquerade of turning tables. In conclusion, I would reccomend Concrete Underground to any reader who loves to stay on the edge of their seat, and I'll always reccomend Mezcal as an outstanding writer.

This book was not my style at all. I actually didn't even finish it. It just never caught my interest. The writing style did not appeal to me at all. Sorry.
