Greg's ability to concoct dark and despicable characters, while simultaneously steeping them in a broth of redeeming humanity, satisfies a hunger I never knew I had. He touches on a sensitive nerve in our society, placing the reader into the shoes of self-deprecating substance addicts, terminally ill (anti?)heroes, and angels of death encased in human flesh. Yet, he somehow manages to bring us full-circle to a point of acceptance and understanding every single time. The world is and (unfortunately) always will be full of some terrible characters - if only they could all be as likable and forgivable as the characters Greg has dreamed up for our hungry imaginations.
This book is a bit darker than his other works, but it was a welcome shift. I have a personal issue with summarizing plots and characters, as I think a true lover of reading should avoid the second-guessing and follow their gut instinct. If you've gotten so far as to read the main summary and are delving into reviews, I urge you to take the leap and give the book a chance. Greg's characters are canvases on which we paint our own beliefs, ideals and desires - you may just be surprised as you emerge from the book with a new best friend by your side; someone you can truly say you understand and have bonded with.
Have you ever tried to summarize the life and personality of someone you truly love - someone you have grown to understand and accept despite all of their qualities that turn others away? If so, you know that it is damn near impossible, and that is the predicament I find myself in every time I finish reading one of Greg's books. Deep down inside an unreachable place of my heart, I have developed a love for his characters and the worlds he has created, but I will never be able to show you the blinding light cloaked by the layers of suffocating darkness in his works.
This blinding light, you will have to find on your own. But believe me when I say that once you have found it, you will never be without.
(Side Note: I reached out to Greg Levin personally on his blog after finishing his book "The Exit Man", and felt it important to (try to) tell him just how helpful it was during the time of my uncle-in-law's final days with terminal lung cancer. I expected no response, as I simply wanted him to know how much of an impact his works could have on one simple person's life (if only to encourage him to keep writing for all of our sake). No matter, as he responded with more compassion and care than I could have ever imagined. Greg is not only a fantastic author, but also a genuinely sweet person with an unbounded heart for both his readers and his family/friends. For this reason alone, I suggest you give his books a shot. Authors like this are the holy grail of fiction.)
At times, it feels like it’s Zero against the world. Levin takes us on a journey where we feel Zero’s physical and emotion struggle. We watch him literally and figuratively trying to keep himself together.
It dawned on me while I was reading this book that any onlooker might have seen my mouth dropped for much of it. I’m a big fan of Mr. Levin’s work, having read all his published novels, and this one is my favorite. He has a remarkable way of balancing a dark subject, with multi-dimensional characters that never seem to lose their sense of humor. This is a fast-paced book and, as with all his novels, it will keep you guessing to the end. Big thumbs up from this reader!
