Ellis Hits The Mark With "The Informers"
on April 10, 2000
I have several of his books now (Looking forward to reading "Glamorama") and this as to be by far yet, the best I have read from his novels.
The Informers is not a funny or even satire reading but am ore powerful, engrossing, and even disturbing read at times.
A mixed selection of characters superimposed within their own story to tell, B.E.E does a wonderful job interweaving them all to stand out in the end.
From the junky to the vampire; from the sedated careless mother to the hateful son and of course the 80's, these characters are true to life and the lives portrayed are all to familiar too many of us.
Much better written then "Less Than Zero", I found this book at times disturbing yet refreshing. The Informers drag you through the core of human issues, confusion, monstrosities, and the hopeless and helpless feelings of hatred we sometimes are so afraid of.
Brett Easton Ellis has been a favorite autor of mine since the early 90's and I just want to say "Keep up the good work and great writing"
