And Then RunAnd Then Run by Eric Hublot

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This is a strange, compelling, interesting book. Its narrator Jerome Esterson is an unpleasant adolescent trapped in the body of a handsome, successful, wealthy man, obsessed with porn and violence. Increasingly, he grows psychopathic and the bonds between reality and illusion break down. The book offers Jerome opportunity to philosophize and further his delusions, but the first-person narration gives insight into his (horrible) character. There is something compelling about the story and the way it's told, even though Jerome is a horrible misogynist and psychopath. The violence and sex in the novel are graphic. I found the back and forth between the present and the past a bit jarring at times and the book is unpleasant at times. It's not for everyone, but it is an interesting and challenging novel.
