5.0 out of 5 stars a dark, engrossing tragedy 30 Sep 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Wow. I was totally blown away by this tour de force of a novel. This is a new writer with a huge amount of talent, able to mine the darkest reaches of the human condition to create an anti-hero for our generation.

I loved the book, and feel dirty for it. Nothing about this novel is comfortable, you want to hope for redemption but know none is deserved. This is the underbelly, the grim road, the enemy at our gates. From start to finish we ride the rollercoaster of lies, drugs, deceit and descent. The protagonist thinks he is in control, and craves it. Control, however, is never found.

The influences of James Frey and Bret Easton Ellis are clear from the start, but the darker figure of Rodion Raskolnikov lurks behind our doomed protagonist. We are in the mind of a monster.

Freedman has a dark reading of modern life, of a life of plenty. This novel is a rejection of the world and values that so much of the world dream of. It is a slap in the face of conventional wisdom, or maybe a kid throwing his toys out of the pram.

A special mention for the parts of the book that flow like streams of consciousness, gambling, drugs, girls rush through pages like the high nights they are, the heart palpitates unnaturally, we are there, we feel it, we love it and we are guilty. Genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book ... buy it! 5 Jun 2014

If you like Bret Easton Ellis you should buy this book. The book is a great commentary on North West London and I heartily recommend it to anyone looking for a punchy read. Not for the faint hearted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brutal and brilliant. 17 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback
Dead Cat Bounce feels like it was heated up in a syringe and injected into the sensory cortex of your brain. Fast, brutal, with bitter honesty and at times searingly funny. The protagonist is utter unapologetic hatred for others and has a self destructive nature that makes Patrick Bateman look bland. Dead Cat Bounce for me is the book that American Psycho should have been. Just as dark and twisted, but with the protagonists time split between the city of London and becoming a Mossad agent in Israel, every thing within seems believable and reads like the journal of a schizophrenic addict. I say that as a huge complement. The most powerful aspect is how through all the ill will, you discover his hatred for his own sense of entitlement, a honestly lost man who is searching for something with meaning. At times the narrative becomes disjointed, and that amplifies the sense of distortion through a drink and drug haze. You find yourself empathising for the nameless protagonist and his racist views, early in the book you find him winding up Muslims online with Jewish supremacist views, because he loses is identity through trying to find it. The result is that he is hostile to the point of apathy to each faction. Dead Cat Bounce is a stunning and brutal, yet brilliant read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cut & paste of Easton Ellis and Frey 22 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book's OK - I guess it would be a decent holiday read, but a few issues:
Main one is that the way it pilfers from Brett Easton Ellis (Less than Zero, Glamorama, and American Psycho) and James Frey (A million little pieces) is so obvious that it's kinda distracting.
It feels like 2 books jammed together into one. There's a terrible disconnect between his time in London, and his time in Israel.
His time in the City is puzzling - I don't even know why it made it into the book, if it was to be treated so perfunctorily.
The Mossad handlers just seem to be there to provide a way to shift the plot in any way that Freedman requires.
