FREE EPUB É MOBI Lunar Park ´ ß BRET EASTON ELLIS ✓ Bret Ellis the narrator of Lunar Park is a writer whose first novel Less Than Zero catapulted him to international stardom while he was still in college In the years that followed he found himself adrift in a world of wealth drugs and fame as well as dealinE series of murders that all seem to connect to Ellis’s past Reality memoir and fantasy combine to create not only a fascinating version of this most controversial writer but also a deeply moving novel about love and loss parents and children and ultimately forgivene 355I'm not the most well read guy on Bret Easton Ellis not by a long shot And I should be better read considering I enjoy the guys writing style uite a bit I like the minimalist style and I enjoy his brand of satire But it was interesting to me how he made a memoir that was mostly fiction and used that to examine a bunch of different themes such as family or even writing That he made it a suburban gothic horror makes it even fascinatingI won't pretend to understand everything as it's a bit of a psychological mindfuck but I got the general idea I enjoyed the beginning where he looked back at his career and enjoyed it the entire way through I wouldn't say I was really grabbed most of the time but I was also never bored As a horror it mostly succeeds There were actually a couple scenes that I really liked that scared me When he goes on his computer and finally watches the video that was the high point for me It creeped me out It's obvious Ellis is a talented writer because he pulls off psychological horror satire and a memoir all in the same book It's true that most of the book isn't really true but it's still cool to think about what part is drawn and clearly exaggerated from his real lifeLunar Park isn't a favourite of mine but it was a good read and the mish mash of genres especially appealed to me Check it out it's not nearly as bad as some of the reviews here say But keep in mind that I also liked Glamorama

Lunar ParkBret Ellis the narrator of Lunar Park is a writer whose first novel Less Than Zero catapulted him to international stardom while he was still in college In the years that followed he found himself adrift in a world of wealth drugs and fame as well as dealing with the u I read several reviews of this book before reading most of which denounced it as being awful and I have to say I'm surprisedI tore through it in 3 days I saw it as a near brilliant bit of mind fckery so many psychological themes and commentary on modern life for me to gleefully go searching on Google to tear up and figure out All that and horror too I read somewhere that he was influenced by Steven King in writing this one Indeed I have to say I like the Ellis version of King even betterI don't necessarily agree with those that say Ellis clearly hates himself He might Or he might also just have had an idea for a book like this and is a brilliant writer with a very interesting shall we say mindBut I go back to the commentary on modern life Having recently become a member of the suburban parent crowd I had a great time reading his descriptions of the very sort of parents parenting style I'm avoiding There was one uote in particular that I loved What happened to just wanting your kids to be content and cool? These parents were scientists and were no longer raising their kids instinctually everyone had read a book or watched a video or skimmed the Net to figure out what to do I also found it incredibly clever to write a novel based on or rather heavily referencing your previous novels in this way I'm one of those people who after watching movies sometimes before likes to tear the plot apart and understanding the meaning where it all came from In some ways this felt like a very trippy readers guide to American Psycho It's Cliff Notes on steroids American Psycho just became that much interesting to me and I plan on going back to not only read it again but watch the movie again as well given this new insightYes I'm a little confused and unsure of some parts I've come to expect that from Ellis But I like a book or movie that has me researching and discussing with other readers trying to figure it all out To me the books that deserve bad reviews are those that I've forgotten the moment I close the cover and put it downI can see how this is definitely not a book for everyone For me there were many of my favorite elements There were several passages that had me thinking I really wish they'd make a movie out of this just for the visuals I'm a big fan of psychological horror with lots of blood and gore Dare I say this almost falls in line with the J Horror genre?
