2.0 out of 5 stars Not that great, 15 Sept. 2010
This review is from: The End of Alice (Paperback)
Unfortunately this book is just not a particularly great example of any of the literary genre it attempts to straddle. For epistolary books 'We need to talk about Kevin' is better. For underage eroticism obviously there is 'Lolita' (I accept that the last quarter of the book may be a deliberate homage but the execution - pardon the pun - is much too heavy handed). For the prison theme 'Sleepers' is a better read and has the added spice of being true. And for those seeking out the bloody bits, 'American Psycho' is much more exciting and vomit inducing. I would suggest any of these titles over 'The end of Alice', which takes too many disparate elements and cobbles them together unconvincingly into a rather pointless story. On the other hand it was not boring, so a quick and easy read.
