Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cosmopolis (Paperback)
I bought Cosmopolis after reading lots of different reviews about the film adaptation. I was eager to see what the story was and who the characters were before I went to see the film.
Many people have said in their reviews that the main character, Eric Packer, is bland and boring but I think that's the whole point of the novel! He's meant to be cold and souless, with the people around him having more life in them during their tiny moments within the book.
I've never read a book that's written in such a matter-o-fact way, and that's why I liked the book. It was very unique and I really enjoyed seeing a different way of writing.
The book was really interesting and gripping in a bizarre way. It gives you things to think about, and therefore I definitely recommend that you give this book a go.
