Cannonball Read IV

A bunch of Pajibans reading and reviewing and honoring AlabamaPink.

taralovesbooks’ #CBR4 Review #35: Lunar Park by Bret Easton Ellis

 

Cannonball Read IV: Book #35/52
Published: 2005
Pages: 404
Genre: Fiction

Apparently this book wasn’t very well received by most Bret Easton Ellis fans and I can see why. It’s definitely different. I’ve only slightly familiar with Ellis’ work, having readAmerican Psycho back in college and The Informers just recently. Strangely, Lunar Park is probably my favorite of the three.

The book follows a very well-known author named Bret Ellis (sound familiar?) as we marries a famous actress and they move to the suburbs with their family (they have a son together and she has a daughter). The first half of the book is almost an autobiography of Ellis’ career. I’m not super familiar with his real life history, so I’m not sure how much is true and how much was fictionalized for the story. The fiction Bret Ellis in the book also wrote American Psycho, Less than Zero, etc.
