    Catapult Soul is a remarkable work of heart and soul The protagonist is Vincent V Vallano a sarcastic but lovable outcast The story begins with V giving a short historical account of Pittsburgh and the steel industry humorously detailing how a poor Pittsburgher invented the steel making process but because of bankruptcy was bought out by a wealthy Englishman Then it jumps to V's home life His mother is a shy immigrant from Sicily and his father is a hateful steel miller At the beginning of the story it's implied that V is around 17 because he's getting things ready and by the third chapter he's off to a private college in Maryland where he soon falls in love with Ivy Pineda She might be the only sane person in the story meaning she doesn't have much baggage she's pretty levelheaded and lives a typical suburban life In V's eyes she's an innocent sweetheart whose beauty is unmatched which means he needs topower up on her hair forever because it has a magical taste he can't resist this tongue in cheek phenomenon is better illustrated by him However he starts things off on the wrong foot because after finally chewing on her hair all night in an orchard he ends up breaking his leg at party semi OD'ing on painkillers and blowing her off for a week Light problems compared to what followsV's best friend also decides to move down to Maryland to be with Ivy's best friend They become addicted to heroin and V is left trying to save his best friend One by one bigger problems unfold such as the events of 911 V accumulating school loans and credit card debt the potential foreclosure of his childhood home and his calling to become an artist and to do it now What's remarkable about Catapult Soul is that you experience the beauty of language in many different styles The dialogue is spot on though it took some time to adjust to it There's literally thousands of wordplays and allusions which reminded me of Joyce but without putting a burden on the story There's also narrative tricks and symbols that call the entire story into uestion which begins on the title page and ends on the back cover Truth be told it's not until the second half of the book that things break free from your standard coming of age story Chapter 22 is probably the most notable aspect of the work when V goes on a bombastic tear fighting against the invisible evils he sees plaguing society This is also where you get acuainted with the real V and the love story the main focus of Part I and II breaks open into a deluge of new perspectives Despite having many postmodern features the story blatantly rejects being called postmodern V insists and even demonstrates how he's real and how this book is not a postmodern fictional work but an autobiographical work struggling to catch up to his present state which for me turned it into a satire on both postmodernism and tortured artist stories Hands down one of the most rewarding books I've read Funny experimental classical challenging and emotional all in one

    This was one of the longer and involved books I've read The love story hit home because I went through many of the same things with my ex The mental breakdowns were also interesting and believable I'm still trying to piece together the broader picture of the story I was told it's a dark satire However though it has it's funny parts and characters the story comes off as serious especially since it insists on being taken seriously Maybe that's the satire itself All in all it's a well balanced emotional story with a beautiful combination of poetry prose psychology and philosophy

Whose story really is this?? and ultimately Should I laugh or cry?No matter how you read Catapult Soul you'll be engaged in a beautifully detailed story about family friends love and insanity

    Taken from my ReviewAnd everything else looks cowardly in comparison January 12 2010I don't really write reviews In fact I was just reading reviews of books I recently read to see how people are doing it nowadays Apparently literary analysis is out and the way to go is if you had any problem at all then unleash your negativity on the author based on what you imagine them to be like in real life Poor so and so hahaAnyway here's the deal with this book It's nothing short of a masterpiece What's a masterpiece in light of a book that's not immensely popular and written by an author still in his 20s? It's when none of that matters because you have a book that doesn't just dare to be courageous; it IS courageous; prose that's well crafted with sentences most writers couldn't string together if their life depended on it; a plot that throws itself into an array of difficult issues some old some new; and an author who develops a distinct voice that can't be compared to contemporariesMy last remark is crucial On my social networking sites younger writers are constantly pitching their books to me saying they're like so and so Well if I wanted a book like so and so I would just buy so and so's book We certainly live in an age of desperate mimicry even in the way we review books However I'm going to make mine personal because I know Brian from Facebook I was intrigued by him because of his funny and profound status updates When I found out he wrote a book I asked him who he would compare himself to His response was verbatim Well I write a lot like myself And that attitude carries over into this work It's filled with many references and devotions but it's distinctly and undeniably written by Brian Celio He said it first and indirectly; I'm saying it second and directly Catapult Soul can't be compared to another book and it's a book that could never be successfully mimickedNow onto the story Truthfully I couldn't sell this book based on the plot In many ways it's too simple and conventional It's character driven and held up by the multi dimensional unraveling and sprawlings of Vincent Vallano What I love about Vallano is that a rebel literary character finally shines through at 100% Although I love books by Joyce Salinger Thompson and the rest of the cult writers none of their characters deliver the full uppercut to the face of society Dedalus walks away from his oppressors but does it rather sweet and kindly; Holden simply leaves schools and calls everybody phony behind their back; Duke and Gonzo resort to drugs in the extreme while throwing a few jabs that mock American culture But nothing TOO angry Nothing that poses a REAL threat It's always been that way and hey that's exactly why nothing has changed Again don't get me wrong I love those authors and characters but there's no full assault no bull charge into the machine But with Vallano you get just that someone who rises up out of the confines of their character to say F YOU EVERYBODY AND EVERYTHING And it doesn't just stop there He's unabashed about it clever in his reasoning lovable in his style and most important sincere in suggestions for change It's not just about an attitude; it's about a way of life Which brings me back to being courageous See it's easy to appeal to what's popular and just as easy to criticize what's popular but it's immensely hard to go against both for the sake of what's true in your heart and do it without forgoing rational thought In other words without just being a blathering loudmouth recusant Ironic enough that in light of someone who takes up a fight against all the biggest fight remains with himself and here lies the tricky underside of this work for someone with a sincere and blatant loathing for the status uo as well as the movements against the status uo the problem isn't so much as how to solve it all but whether or not to try knowing what it might cost This is where love the timeless notion of being in love with someone comes into play to throw everything out of balance What you're left with is someone who wants to change the big world but it's causing him to struggle to keep his little world intact Think of it as when worlds collide but with the illusion of one world being bigger and the other smaller yet perhaps having weightWell this probably helped nobody haha But I promised to write a review and these are the things that intrigued me Well developed memorable characters A fearless clever and sincere protagonist A courageous and immensely talented author Layered juxtapositions within the story itself as well as against its outward reaching aims at the real world A classical plotted story with an ingenious twist to how it plays out But just when you think you understand it all there's a startling revelation coded into the back cover that makes you rethink what you just finished

    I want 5 Vs in my life I would send the first V to beat the crap out of the cast of Jersey Shore I would send the second V to berate the academic elite I would send the third V to outwit all the meaningless postmodern writers I would send the fourth V to make fun of all the trite commercial writers I would send the fifth V to destroy drug dealers wife beaters and racist assholes All of this or less happens in the story But call it wishful thinking for the future

    the punk rock anthem for literary hearts i kept wondering if the author was a fan of the refused then towards the end there's a reference to the shape of punk to come that sealed the deal for me awesome love story awesome punk rock ethics never read anything like it before i'll be reading it again in the near futurea naive young secret for the new romanticswe express ourselves in a loud and fashionable way

    I haven't read this book yet but the author held me against my will and forced me to do this I'm sure it's great though despite his brutal demands I'm all for separating the artist from the art anywayOn second thought I DID read this book I'm just horrible at reviews I liked that V a lot like a lot a lot like in a really sinful way


  8. says:

    love love LOVED this book took me about three months to finish it but the ending was well worth it got closure and a better understanding of what was actually going on but still many interpretations left open and meanings to explore loved that the book is constantly tricky and layered while being so heartfelt and engaging never read anything like it beautifully detailed
