    Folks the only way to read Celine is to understand you're reading a sleazy sexy novelization of Looney Tunes This guy is kinetic energy

    London Bridge is a continuation of what you got in Guignol's Band I thought this one was better or maybe after reading them both they make sense as a whole I mean it's really a buy the ticket take the ride situation as in 'this one scene with these two characters screaming and beating and pissing on one another has been going on for what 30 pages now?' But if you're a writer yourself or just the type of reader who appreciates words being pounded into shapes never seen before Céline is your man You will come across lines in his work that will make you put the book down and find someone rant to because you can't believe what you just read He's like a strong drug; you fight through all the nauseating shit because you know he has the power to put you on cloud nineDespite a couple scenes that really reuire a tight grip and stamina a great loony as hell story develops in this one And by the end you start to feel a little for the characters Empathy develops Insight even But don't cheat Read Guignol's Band first and then London Bridge It's worth it

    This is a hard one to rate There really isn't anything to it No story No payoff It's bitching and moaning without the sharp edge of journey to the end of the night Sure it's amusing and weird in places but it drags alot no way should it of been the best part of 500 pages

    Part of me wishes I could be prouder of reading 7 of Celine's novels but if I could publicly be proud of having read a writer who it is widely agreed can best be described as a bastard he would not be Celine Why should we read Celine? We should read Celine to look at our absolute worst selves and to look at the absolute worst selves of everyone around us and laugh at those selvesThis book is closer to three and a half stars honestly There are three main bar scenes The first is confusing The second is kind of a dream The third is the most clear The first bar scene has sexual stuff that many might find a little disturbing One of the reviewers noted on the back of my copy of this book describes the book as Celine's warmest and tamest I do not agree with that at allThe bar scenes did not need to be as long as they were
