5.0 out of 5 stars A new consciousness (A new Voice)., 20 Oct 2014
This review is from: Being Reem (Paperback)
If you should read only one book by Joey Essex in your lifetime, read Being Reem. The book's fractured timeline and experimental prose make it one of the most important examples of the autobiography written in a modernist style, and is indeed evidence of the possible beginning a new movement.
Its 8,732 pages can be subdivided into eighteen chapters, each employing a distinct writing style: stream of consciousness, journalistic, theatrical play format, and hallucinatory, among others. The eighteen chapters are also linked to a colour in an irresistible and unapologetic nod to James Joyce's Ulysses.
Entire careers will no doubt be devoted to the study of this book, so don't worry if you can't understand it. I'm sure if anyone living actually understood Essex's obscure narrative weaving and the minutiae of its structure, they'd be able to see the future and call things into being by mere thought alone. Of all Essex's work, Being Reem most thoroughly encompasses his writing style and perhaps his intriguing mental state.
Being Reem is more than just a book, it's an achievement, but then Essex is more than just a writer, here is a new consciousness and a new voice.
Read it. 10/10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun book to read, 23 Aug 2014

This review is from: Being Reem (Kindle Edition)
I downloaded this book on kindle. Its very easy to read, as the chapters are very short. Its quite funny in some parts and sad in others. It is wrote just how Joey Essex speaks and you can visualise him doing everything he describes. Its a fun book to read and i like the way he throws in random facts throughout the book.
