I'm reading all the Booker Prize winners since its inception. Follow me at www.methodtohermadness.com

This is a great book. A great f***en book, as our hero, Vern, would say. Vernon Gregory Little is a little guy accused of a big crime: the mass murder of over a dozen of his Texas classmates. But he didn’t do it. He just can’t prove it.

Poor Vernon is trapped in a web of loyalty: to a sad mother, who falls for the scumbag televising his case; to a girl who passed out at a party; to a father whose body can’t be found; to the bullied friend who actually did the shooting. He’s the sweetest kid you’d ever hope to meet on death row.

Vernon’s desperate attempt to escape his fate is both gritty and lyrical. And up until the last ten pages, I had literally no idea how it would end. Pierre brings all the pieces together masterfully, and Vernon recreates himself as (almost) a god. Poetic writing and a show-stopping plot, plus a quirky character you can’t help but love: it’s definitely worth the read to see how Pierre pulls it off. ( )

The book was very well written. However it just never fully engaged my interest. None of the characters were likable. Every character was too flawed. ( )

Ugh! There were some aspects of this novel I enjoyed. I enjoy experimentation as long as the end result can still be read and digested, and this novel was experimental with respect to plot and was readable. But for me there was nothing to enjoy or learn here. On the topic of mass murder at a school, if there was something to learn, some perspective or understanding to be gained of the individual or society, then there might have been value for me. Here there was none. Does the plot and the language reflect American society? Perhaps at some level, but without some possibility of expanded understanding then I would be better off just reading a newspaper account.

I like wine, and the more I try to understand what I am tasting, the more I learn about what I like and don't like. I am going to chalk this reading experience up to learning more about what I don't like in a novel. ( )

Very strong start, ( )

Deviously funny and fast-paced, the story of Vernon 'G' Little's adventures with small-town Texas following a mass shooting are joyfully silly with no air of pretension. Written by the outrageous DBC Pierre, whose own life should also make it into words some day. ( )
