Description de l'ouvrage

22 mai 2007
Enter apathy.

Travis is back from college for the summer, and he's just starting to settle in to the usual pattern at home: drinking, drugging, watching porn, and hooking up.

But Travis isn't settling in like he used to; something isn't right. Maybe it's that deadly debauch in Hawaii, the memories of which Travis can't quite shake. Maybe it's Laura, Travis's ex, who reappears on the scene after a messy breakup and seems to want to get together -- or not. Or maybe it's his suddenly sensing how empty and messed up his life is, and wanting out.

But once you're at the party, it's tough to leave...

Format:Broché
Two phrases that stick with you throughout this novel are: this is not a love story, and there are no happy endings. These two phrases, which appear in the foreward, are true to life for the main character, Travis.

School is over and Travis goes back to his going nowhere lifestyle. He snorts an excess amount of cocaine with his friends, goes to many parties, hooks up with girls, and dreams about them. Travis leaves on a trip from Hawaii and, when he returns, he seems even more unsettled than before he left. What happened?

The girl Travis fell in love with, Laura, returns to him after breaking up with her boyfriend. Will she give Travis false hope of them getting back together?

Travis soon realizes that his life is not how he wants it. He realizes it is going nowhere. He wants to leave all the drama and bad influences behind him, but can he?

Just when you think something may take a turn for the better, you think of the two phrases in the foreward.

Life does not turn out happily ever after. This book is very true-to-life, which is why I liked it.

at first i thought, cool, nice title, immediately brings to mind that whole "less than zero" thing that i thought was so cool as a teenager back in the late '80s. then on reading the above excerpt, i realised that over 400 pages of bret ellis ripoff might be a bit hard to take...

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Not Worth the Time It Takes To Read 15 décembre 2009
Par John Baker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I read about the first 40 pages of this book. Then, sensing what I was up against, I flipped forward about 20 pages. Yep, that page could just as well have been the next page. So I skipped forward about 30 more pages. Same thing. All the way to the end. The afterword is much too little, too late to save it.

I was originally drawn to this book because the author is a relative of a friend. For that reason, and to write an accurate review, I did go back and read the whole thing.

This is fiction that makes you think you could be reading the diary of a real 19 year old loser. The author should be given props for this at least, because his bio doesn't give the impression that this book could be a semi-autobiography. The book DOES parallel real life. I've known people like the characters in this book and the protagonist. They're annoying, juvenile, and repetitive. It's no wonder they have to do so many drugs - they have to in order to put up with themselves and their friends. I felt almost as annoyed reading this book as I do around these people in real life. Perhaps that was the author's intention. There's nothing glaringly bad about the writing (nothing particularly noteworthy either).

See another review about the tedious listing of nobody bands and hipster apparel.

The author does create believable dialogue. For this I will look for his next book. But if it's not radically different in outlook and worldview (and tedious room and clothing descriptions), I'm not going to struggle through it.

This book and its characters perhaps warrant a quote from the Boomer Bible. It speaks directly about characters such as this, and perhaps those who find this a great read.

"We don't care what they say, at all, because they are disgusting to us, and it doesn't really matter if they still know how to read or not, or if they can understand writing that doesn't have cute scenes in it, or charming losers dancing on the brink of doom, because we're not interested in being liked, whether they like it or not. We're interested in leaving a record, for the ones who will come later, the ones who will have to start over, when they have finished rotting everything to pieces."

1.0 étoiles sur 5 An embarassment for my generation 4 octobre 2009
Par Bradley E. Pringle - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Open up a copy of "Exit Here" and here is what you're likely to find on any given page:

- A detailed description of one or more characters doing cocaine... again
- A head-to-toe description of what a hipster kid is wearing
- Senseless, outdated pop culture references such as full-episode recaps of "Saved By the Bell" or Vincent Gallo movies
- A young, priviledged, cosmetically beautiful teenager whining about how terrible their life is because of things they willingly take part in on a daily basis (drugs, partying, drinking, promiscuous sex, etc...)
- The oh-so-clever gimmick of not using quotes to outline what the main character may or may not be saying or thinking

"Exit Here" wants you to feel bad for the main character, Travis. Really, he has an extremely tough life: He is bloody rich, he lives in a gigantic house, he has tons of friends and could get a free ride to any school he wanted to. But he gets caught up in drugs, sex, murders, abortions and various other things because of decisions he could have easily avoided making. I felt no sympathy for him whatsoever. In all honesty, he really just needed a good slap in the face.

All the supporting characters are one-dimensional. Just a cast of a bunch of teenagers who do stupid things, reflect on it for about three seconds when something bad happens (like someone dying), but ultimately end up learning nothing and don't change for the better. I can't believe a book with no character development like this even made it past the first editing run.

The build up to what actually happened on his Hawaiian vacation at the end was such a let down, too. It was way too easy to guess. I was hoping the author would really hit me with something unexpected, something that would justify forcing my way through 400 pages of self-indulgent crap. But no, just another "woe is me" story that came about from Travis doing a lot of drugs. I want those hours of my life back, please.

I didn't feel sorry for Travis. I feel sorry for anyone who forced their way through the 400+ pages of total garbage.

"Inhale. Exhale."
And the events of Travis Wayne's life unfold.

In Exit Here, Myers tell the story of Travis Wayne as he arrives home for the summer after his fist year away at college. Throughout the book, Travis struggles to come to terms with the truth and reality of his life and his future. Enough with my plot synopsis; read the book and find out what happens. Now, on to my opinion of the book:

First of all, this book is awesome. I don't know why you are sitting on your computer reading my review when you should be reading this book, but if you need more convincing I will go on. When I first got the book, I was a little wary of the length. I mean, how can a book with over 400 pages be fun and exciting. Well, in Exit Here something happens on every page. After the first few pages, I didn't want to put it down; so I wasn't astonished when I finished it in 2 days. This book is a true page-turner.

What makes the book so fun to read is all the pop-culture references. I can't remember the last time I laughed so much while reading a book; it was great! How can you not love a book that makes fun of a former member of NKOTB! AWESOME!!!

It is not all laughs either. Besides it being a hilarious story, it also tackles difficult issues of growing up and learning responsibility while facing sex, drug, and alcohol abuse. I think it is sometimes hard for a novel to both be funny and have a strong thematic message, but Myers is able to accomplish this beautifully. He so seamlessly creates a world in which all the characters exist. By the time I finished the book, I felt like I knew Travis and all his friends. It's weird because I felt like their lives continued even when the book ended. Myers is truly a talented writer in this aspect.

If you like reading good books, read Exit Here.

"Yo brah like doin coke brah cuz we so cool brah so much sex because like yeah braaaaaaah"
Copy paste that enough times to fill 400 pages and you have basically rewritten this book.

In case you want more detail:

This book is on my top 5 list of worst books I have ever read and I am astounded by the levels of positive feedback I see on it. It has zero character development, a repetitive plot, and gives no message or meaning. The characters are pathetic, unlikeable, and unrealistic. A lot of people say they are "so real" because they are inappropriate but in reality, they are cheap and uniform. They are cardboard cutouts of real people.

Books in the past have successfully created morally questionable main characters and still had them be interesting and inthralling. This is not one of them. Even A Clockwork Orange, one book that is definitely uncensored and full of hateable characters, succeeded in having a moving plot and some level of meaning. Exit Here fails at making their characters have any redeeming or even interesting qualities.

One thing Exit Here DOES succeed in is having numerous bizarre sex scenes reminiscent of bad porn and female characters that manage to sound like permanently pmsing men. That is at least funny (in a sad way).

Not a recommended book for anyone with over a dozen brain cells. A boring block of repetitive text hiding under its "raw and inappropriate" quality to smother its lack of depth.
