A very disappointing book.

A very disappointing book. I read the first chapter of Nine Below Zero in the bookstore and couldn't wait to get it home to finish it. While I don't mind reading a dark novel, it would certainly help if I liked the characters, and I did not like one in this novel. Justine in particular grated on my nerves.

Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group, 22 февр. This was hugely disappointing, especially since Winslow in Love is the best book I've read this year. Too much was taken for granted. The characters are said to love and hate and resent one another.

In Canty's fiction (Into the Great Wide Open, 1996; A Stranger in This World, 1994), the irrational has a way of winning out. His tough, resilient, often bitter characters know better, but at life's turning points they surrender almost. His tough, resilient, often bitter characters know better, but at life's turning points they surrender almost inevitably to the yearning for self-destruction. This is the case again here. It’s a tribute to the power of Canty’s deterministic vision that, even though it seems inevitable that the angry, desperate Justine and the despairing, self-aware Marvin (struggling to control his appetite for booze and drugs) will meet and begin an affair, their collision is still striking. Canty also portrays’shrewdly-the anger the affair rouses in Marvin’s town.

I guess this just isn't "my kind of book." Depressing, unlikable characters, no matter how well written, made this tough going for me. While the author has an excellent writing style, the story and its protagonist left me cold.

My boyfriend bought it ... he's an avid reader and love Kevin Canty... The book was in great shape. Do you have a buy back program?

I love Kevin Canty's work. He is my favorite author and I can't wait for him to write another book (of course his new collection is due out very soon!). This book, however, isn't for everyone. There are twists and turns of plot, but the main topic of this novel is the struggle within the main characters. Canty has a way with manipulating the psyches of depressed and lonely people; he has a unique ability to show the deepness and complexity of human emotion like no other writer that is alive today. If you have never read Kevin before I suggest you read his other novel first (Into The Great Wide Open, or evenn better, read his short story collection, A Stranger In This World, that is the best book I own!!), simply because this book is a lot to handle if you don't know what to expect. You should expect long narrative sequences that dive into the minds of the characters. No thought is left out, EVERYTHING is thought about and with complete honesty, something that is hard to find nowadays. I am at a loss for words to describe this book. Usually in modern fiction there is no more to learn than a moral lesson or a cleverly disguised metaphor, but by reading Canty I have again seen the core of human emotion; I have relearned how people see each other and how they think. BEST BOOK YOU WILL READ by a modern American author. BUY IT!!!

A very disappointing book. I read the first chapter of Nine Below Zero in the bookstore and couldn't wait to get it home to finish it. While I don't mind reading a dark novel, it would certainly help if I liked the characters, and I did not like one in this novel. Justine in particular grated on my nerves. She is extremely selfish and immature and her self degradation grew weary. I just didn't care. Marvin turned out to be the biggest disappointment. In the first chapter he is funny and insightful. By the end of the novel he is just pathetic.

This has to be the worse book I have ever read. The characters do not seem to have a straight thought in the entire book. The writing is disjointed. The plot lines lead nowhere. A thoroghly disappointing ending and sludging through all those pages of drivel.
