5.0 out of 5 stars Biting Wit and Explosive Social commentary, July 5, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Love Like Hate: A Novel (Paperback)
This X rated at times sexually radical (the finer points of bestiality anyone?)novel finds and makes its bulls-eyes on exposing and explicating common perceptions versus reality in a fast moving , belly laugh witty , post modernist style (one scene where the narrator enters the narrative the author managed the most seamless and comical use I have encountered of that device ) struck me with so many searing , lasting and revealing images of American and Vietnamese history, and ethical and social consciousness that I consider this by far the most effective novel in terms of didactic intent that I have read for some time - its poetical and heuristic style makes the prose enduring on the memory - highly recommended for anyone without discomfort at sexually explicit and suggestive prose (which at times borders on making the novel an albeit stylistically beautiful bordello) . Once through the first few chapters and you have meshed with the conversational English , you wont put it down (or turn it off...I read the flawless kindle edition as my first encounter with an "e-book" and now am an e book addict).
