      Perhaps the most awesome thing: Resurrecting the T-Rex skeleton that can be found the Field Museum in Chicago (yes, THAT T-Rex), riding it into downtown Chicago and using it to stop the necromantic apocalypse.
      From what you're saying, it sounds absolutely dreadful.

          That's a cool cover that I hadn't seen before. Anyway I ******* love this book, BEE is one of my all time favorite authors and Less Than Zero is filled with some amazing moments. To me no other book has ever understood depression so well, if that makes any sense...

          His next book due out in a year or so is a sequel of Less Than Zero, btw.

            Beyond the plot, from what I read, the writing was as bad as I've seen in a published novel. It was glorified fan-fiction quality. I know a lot of people love those books, and I don't mean to be a jerk about it, but it was excruciating.

                Your mileage may vary. It's essentially a pulp detective novel with explosions and magic.

                  I should have worded that better the book is called "Pop" because one of the main characters nick name is "The King of Pop" for his hard hits.

                  Its really a good book its about a high shcool football player who becomes friends with an ex NFL player only he doesn't even know the guy used to play pro ball.

                  I don't want to give to much away but any one that likes high school football or any football for that matter would like this book.

                    <3 BEE. One of the best authors of this generation IMO, and a great social commentator. Less Then Zero is also my favorite book by him, although I did love The Informers. And if we are speaking of human depravity, the gloriousness of American Psycho knows no comparison. That is some of the most disturbing **** Ive ever read.

'thing'.

                      I hate the fact that I can't actually have more than a drink or two in public without fear that some guy is going to try to get me to have sex with him, because i'm drunk. It's unnerving, unreasonable, and misogynistic.
                      i'm going to go out on a limb here and say you're a little overly paranoid and need to relax a bit. there's probably a 90% chance that if you have more than a drink or two some dude is NOT going to try to get you to have sex with him.

                      i know a lot of bar-hoppin', club-goin' types, and not a single one of them tries to get bitches so ****** up that they are damn near in a comatose. and nothing I read in that book made me think that Tucker Max endorses that. this guy ain't my hero or anything, but it is a funny book any way you look at it.

                      females make a big show about how they're in control because they're in control because they got *****. well ****, if you don't wanna be labeled a skank then have enough self-control to not let me and a gang of friends run through that. you can't really blame the guy if the girl does say yes, and that is exactly what happens. (90% of the time)
                      • i do not endorse rape of any kind.
                      • i love me some women
                      • im not tryin to piss you off.

                        OUCH...

                        Why would any man want to seperate himself from this appendage?

                          • Just finished Inherent Vice by Thomas Pynchon & Road Dogs by the best writer of pulp detective fiction in my lifetime, Elmore Leonard, & I'm halfway through his 80s novel LaBrava.

                            Leonard brought back protagonist Jack Foley over a decade later from Out of Sight, Foley is the most famous bank robber in the nation having robbed 127 of them. Gotta love his in-jokes too, in one p/o RDs Foley discusses who would play him in a film version of his life, & he disagrees with the choices, saying he would prefer so-&-so, or "maybe George Clooney." LOL, Who do you think played Foley in the film Out of Sight?

                              I'd venture to put him in there.

                                Still bogged down in Against the Day, about 2/3rds of the way through its overwhelming 1300 or so pgs..... arrrgghh.

                                I highly recommend Inherent Vice as a neo-noir/hippy detective novel, it's not just for Pynchon fans only. It's very similar to his late 60s Crying of Lot 49 with the same themes, paranoid conspiracies, secret scieties, rampant sex & drug use, etc. Good times
