I really don't know what to say about this book.

Was it well-written? Yes.

Is it worth reading? I don't know.

There's no doubt that the narrative is powerful. Disturbing, but powerful. Methodical and almost lyrical at times. Stylistic.

But is style enough? Especially when taken in conjunction with a character like Q_P_?

American Psycho had a subtle, if somewhat cruel, satire to its storytelling technique. It mocked its own seriousness even while it made its characters perform unspeakable deeds.

The underlying rhythm to Zombie is so sad and ultimately so without hope, that I fear the only lesson to be learned here is that life is simply and inescapably an exercise in madness.
