The first is a gruesome satire about single life in celeb Paree, the second a lovesick rant about doomed romance. For all their spume and bile and fight, both books turn out to be surprisingly touching.
Odd little pieces. Don't outlast their welcome, which would have been quite easy to do had they been longer. Some wisdom of sorts to be found in the second part, but nothing much you couldn't find in a more entertaining way in a Nick Hornby book.
Rated M for sex, drugs and rocknroll. Aug 08, Lili Kim rated it liked it. This book is pretty easy to read, and he does have some deep thoughts amidst all of the chauvinistic ramble. It's definitely not a book for everyone, and it's filled with controversial musings-but I appreciated some of his melancholic epiphanies.
Sep 27, Justin rated it really liked it. The first is a "funny" if slightly tiresome satire of upper crust partiers, a la Tom Wolfe or Bret Easton Ellis.
The second is much better, an utterly believable love story presented as a monologue in an actually funny, compelling voice.
Jul 11, Dominic Carrillo rated it liked it. Though 'Love Last Three Years' starts off on a very depressing note, it picks up toward the end.
I didn't like the narrator because he seemed very selfish and arrogant, and was too self-loathing and suicidal at one point. I kept reading because he was occasionally funny and his voice was honest--though I disagreed with plenty that he said.
The other reason I didn't like the beginning is because it reads like his personal essay on 'why love lasts only three years' and other introspective mental w Though 'Love Last Three Years' starts off on a very depressing note, it picks up toward the end.
The other reason I didn't like the beginning is because it reads like his personal essay on 'why love lasts only three years' and other introspective mental wanderings rather than an actual story. It's called a novel on the cover and I expected a novel. His writing doesn't even resemble a story until the last third of the text.
By the end of it, he's in a new, promising relationship, but it left me quite concerned for his new girlfriend's well-being and future with him. A book that drags a bit in terms of a bit redundantly describing a high profile page3 party.
But then the tempo builds towards the end. The climax comes with a twist that is radical and scary. Not for the boring. Not for the sedentary. Not for the meek hearted. Fast and interesting read, but too chaotic, too absurd and nonlikable in the end.
Whilst "Love lasts three years" did offer points to take away and I would have gladly given it a 4-star rating because of it, I can hardly say the same about "Holiday in a Coma".
