Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon | 5/12/2011

    " Read solely for Homer Simpson because this novel is NOT KIND to my city! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve | 4/23/2011

    " I have an inordinate fondness for this book of 1930s Hollywood co-starring Homer Simpson. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ke | 4/10/2011

    " I think the main character doesn't seem that active and Homer comes from the left field. The beginning is more well-written than the rest. There are a few flaties. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber | 3/28/2011

    " this is a clever clever book-focusing on the absurdity of life, the falsehood and shallowness of Hollywood, and humanity's need for violence. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vonetta | 3/24/2011

    " Great prose. Very funny, great prose with weirdo characters that stick to you in the shower. Mr. West has me writing again -- a near impossible feat! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Todd | 3/22/2011

    " find me a better novel! I dare you! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jacob | 3/7/2011

    " Wanted to like it a lot more than I did. I can see how it could have been scandalous when it was published, but after we've read Bukowski, Hubert Selby Jr. and the like, it's hard to get too worked up about it, for me anyway. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 2/19/2011

    " A great read when you're living in Los Angeles. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dominic | 1/18/2011

    " I liked it. I will have to read it again some day. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen | 12/20/2010

    " Was intrigued by it, but did not like characters so can't say I "liked" it. "
