With straight forward, strict syntax (that is reminiscent of Hemingway) and portmanteau, such as "no-strings-attached sex" which brings Joyce to mind, this is truly a force to be reckoned with in our modern age, and will surely add its author's name to the hall of literary greats. For each page is bursting with rich observation on the complex lot of humanity: "'Babe!' he called out as soon as he saw her. Sapphire gave him her WTF look." And awe consuming description that reminds us that empirical philosophy is still alive and well: "Jay got up. At six foot two he was a fit guy in all senses of the word. He was a personal trainer, had biceps that Sapphire adored caressing, abs of steal, the cutest bum and long muscular legs. Look wise he resembled Wentworth Miller from Prison Break." Characters that make Faulkner's look like mere cardboard cutouts and a story line that can only be described in one word: gripping. This truly is a wondrous piece of fine art.
I find no flaw in this devastatingly good novel and I urge all of humanity to rush out and buy this masterpiece and sink with me into the cesspit of our rotting and moribund culture. In the dilapidated houses of our broken economy you will find this book, in the cluttered bedrooms of our disaffected youth this book will loom its hideous face of brilliance, and, once you breathlessly put it down after the final page, in your soul is where it will linger for all time.
Do people actually buy this rubbish? I think this is probably the last time i read anything by KP...she's so 5 years ago. I personally prefer the Louise Bagshaw type of story or Sophie Kinsella for a summer read.
Would it be the life-changing tome I hoped and feared it would be? Would its ideas and central theme radically alter my perception of life...indeed, my perception of reality itself and, ultimately, my place and significance in the cosmos?
The pages emit a golden, radiant wonder in their melifluence. Look hither and thither - jewel-like ideas chase eagerly through each paragraph in some glittering parallel of Milton's finest hour. Price is obviously a student of the Pashway/Karastakkian school of interfrodal character development. The book is populated by a veritable horde of perinatal, anamorphic conquistadors, all vying for space in the readers frontal cortex and each one larger than life, thanks to Price's inimitable grasp of the Quintriella principle.
I'm moved to place Price onto the same plane as Dickens - I'm transported into her world, rather than kept as a distant (if rabidly fervent) viewer. I'm saddened that she and Joseph Heller are destined never to meet - the unison of those two great minds would be one to behold, although mere mortals such as I would, most likely, be swept away by the resulting intellectual tsnunami.
"Sapphire" is the "Grapes Of Wrath", the "War And Peace", the "Crackerjack Annual, 1973" of our time and so it will forever remain, carved upon my soul like the names of two passion-filled lovers on some urban, arborial giant after a late-night knee-trembler in the doorway of a Tesco Express.
Basically, the story is great but I didn't expect to see such awful mistakes in a book by 'The number 1 best selling author'!!
Definitely worth a read though and follows suit with Angel, Angel uncovered and Crystal...looking forward to buying Paradise now.
