Decent Concept That Tries Too HardMay 28 2012
- Published on Amazon.com
I really enjoyed reading the first 100 pages of this novel about a DJ doing his last show on a pretty unpopular late night radio station. The novel eventually becomes scrambled and boring and I feel like the comparisons between Zaf's current and ex girlfriend are made hundreds of times throughout the novel and get old incredibly fast. Psychoraag is somewhat interesting for its concepts of identity and music (but don't except anything mainstream because according to the protagonist those songs are awful and only 30 minute, trippy, obscure Indian music is the only kind worth listening to). This book is an OK read but it can be difficult to relate to Zaf if you aren't multicultural and don't like his kind of music.
