Henry Rollins speaks with a voice that has been forgotten by most of us. The voice of anger, sorrow, joy, love and murderous hatred... honest and truthful in its own fictional way, consequences be damned.
There are many people who'd tell you he's the Messiah, but in reality, he's just a screwed-up guy with some really good things to say - and the talent required to say them. I have great respect for people like that - and I recommend this book highly. It is, for me, and incredibly profound read.
yes. i did... i am not some rollins fanatic,but i have to admit that this guy really knows what he is talking about.the way he describes loneliness,pain,humiliation that goes along sometimes with "being real" with women,the alienation that big cities can make you feel...this book sums it all up-in living colour,simple language and gut wrenching honesty.
rollins talks about situations that many of us go through- the need for someone,the sleepless nights after a loved one leaves...
the burning need to know where she is and what she is doing....
but! unlike others,rollins offers different solutions.rollins confronts his fear instead of being over sensitive (although his writing IS very sensitive and intelligent)- rollins offers confrontation instead of fear,long periods of loneliness instead of forced agony in marriage. he does NOT give the easy option.
he tells it like it is:"wonder where your EX is? let me assuer you-she is with someone else".brutal? yes.. but true.
this might not be easy reading,but whenever i was down,whenever i have felt bad about myself-whenever i woke up in the middle of the night- i opened "solipsist".didnt even matter which page ,and started reading.
this book is a MUST for everyone who has ever had a hard time and DIDNT break.
i will close this recommendation with a quote from "solipsist":
AND YOU NEVER FORGET WHAT YOU ARE.
I highly recommend it.
there were good quotes from this book in the advertising, and those were the ONLY good parts imo.
It was like a movie which has the only good scenes in the trailer. I didn't even finish it.

Dark yet poetic in a way only Henry Rollins can deliver. Great read!!Published 4 months ago by Chris Cheatham
I choose this rating because I couldn't finish the book. I got to page 100 and realized that I felt like I was far-reaching the same parable over and over again. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Andrew
Clearly Henry Rollins is brilliant. This book seems to be a stream of consciousness. Which, in my view is perfectly fine. I just can't get into it. Read morePublished on January 18, 2014 by Shred
The views Henry Rollins speaks about in this book are just cold and brilliant. It's the ugly truth, about society. It would be devastating, to live a life, like Solipsist. Read morePublished on December 20, 2013 by Denny
This. Book. Is. Stunning. I enjoyed every miserable, emotional bit of it. Rollins has been, and always will be, a stunning artist in my opinion. Read morePublished on November 18, 2013 by Leyla
