Less Than Zero was an enjoyable read. In a way, it’s the perfect anti-existential novel:
I don’t want to care if I care about things, it’ll just be worse, it’ll just be another thing to worry about. It’s less painful if you don’t care.
Of course, by trying to weave a story where one isn’t outwardly concerned with existence makes the implicit focus on it even more poignant.
It’s a nice coming-of-age story, with a healthy dose of “you can never go home again” thrown in. 7/10.
