What a great standalone. Also, loving the Thrill Kill Kult easter-egg at 1:05 !
@matt90210andahalf Missed that first time around. Now I wonder how I did!
Truly awful. Pretentious claptrap
im sorry just not feelin it
Good hook Writing too purple. The writing sounds as much cartoon as the cartoon. Which looks like your classic stoner cartoon.
1:34 is that Bobby Hill??
Perhaps it should have been the reading of YouTube comments and not the speech of children that transmits disease in the book.
It's important to think of this video as a trailer rather than a short film. It recreates various scenes from the novel, just as a movie trailer would show a handful of scenes from the movie. The purpose here is to intrigue you with little pieces, not present a stand alone narrative, though I did enjoy watching this before I had read the book.
…… what is this?
The listeners on the wall next to LeBov are excellent!
What a horrid writer. The klunkiest and dullest prose I've ever read.
I can't believe The Harper's would accept his short stories, but when you look at the art work this mag now prints, you know who the new in charge are.
He dedicates 3 entire chapters to describing the symptoms! I was like, yes, Ben, I get that part. How about detailed descriptions of the world these people are inhabiting?
Even an unreliable narrator can SEE and NOTE things. And he's a racist. Note "dark unevolved lumps".
@mysticgirl1000 I can definitely see where you're coming from. I found it to be lacking in certain aspects but making up for it in others. When I read it, I was getting ready to be married, and I was extremely elated all the time. I had to read something dark and depressing to balance me out. 🙂 I guess when the narrator is a simple man just trying to describe what's going on, one can't expect for a detailed account of everything else. It really seemed like the voice fit the prose–that idea of hopelessness and fatigue was pervasive throughout. I had to take breaks because, like you, I would think, "Okay, I get it. They're miserable." Still, compelling and I found the concept refreshing.
