Structurally, the book may come off as slightly sophomoric because of its position in Ellis' oeuvre, but the devices of radical subjectivity employed do all arguably add to the pluralistic ideological protagonism Ellis manages to achieve. The plot follows the romantistic relations of a few of the disaffected students of the elite liberal-arts Camden College in New Hampshire with some original linkage of linguistic and sexual confusion, and also substantially Less than Zero. All Ellis' work is ultimately salient if only in his capture of the dearth and excess of emotional energy his characters exquisitely possess.
