Less Than Zero by Bret Easton Ellis

By (Publisher)

Set in Los Angeles in the early Awesome80's, this coolly mesmerizing novel is a raw, powerful portrait of a lost generation who have experienced sex, drugs, and disaffection at too early an age, in a world shaped by casual nihilism, passivity, and too much money a place devoid of feeling or hope. Clay comes home for Christmas vacation from his Eastern college and re-enters a landscape of limitless privilege and absolute moral entropy, where everyone drives Porches, dines at Spago, and snorts mountains of cocaine. He tries to renew feelings for his girlfriend, Blair, and for his best friend from high school, Julian, who is careering into hustling and heroin. Clay's holiday turns into a dizzying spiral of desperation that takes him through the relentless parties in glitzy mansions, seedy bars, and underground rock clubs and also into the seamy world of L.A. after dark.

Your Memories Shared!

"I think that "Less than Zero" is a highly interesting and - in some respects - very realistic book. But sometimes there is just too much showing off so you get the feeling that the author tries hard to convince readers how cool he is - with an "I've seen it all" - attitude. And the women are described as extremely weak, like when the protagonist describes how Blair (and other women) wished desperately to have a serious relationship with him. It's sure not the best book ever written, but it's quite interesting and sex and violence always sell."
