Each card features a unique "death". While some of the "deaths" are a bit of fun and just plain silly, others provide a crude, shocking and provoking social commentary covering topics such as depression, women's rights, police brutality, addiction, health trends and much more.

April 1, Rating: B- Full Review…. This book is profane, vulgar, cynical, violent, non PC and immensely funny. I enjoyed it very much.
At times it teetered on the edge of excessive parody but Niven just about reins it in - I think. Who am I to judge.
Postscript - the book name checks more than a few records and record company executives. One of those named is a chap who's great big go away townhouse we have just finished some work on.
It was quite bizarre to see him named in a work of "fiction". I also dug out an old CD "Marquee Moon" by Television to replay after it was mentioned in dispatches.
The title track is 10 minutes long - not at all how I remembered it from Good album though. Feb 22, Dree rated it it was ok Shelves: dnf , own-hard-copy.
It is filled with disgusting, immoral and drug addicted people of which Stelfox is one of the worst. It's certainly NOT for the feint hearted- and honestly I can understand that.
Yet, apparently not so much as I thought, because I must be the only the person in the world who found Bad Santa really distasteful. In a way its a shame that there is quite so much vile language as Niven really is a clever writer, there are some funny parts in the pages I read.
Its total debauchery - but its witty debauchery. I won't be reading on though, because after the set up, there just isn't a story.
You really can't just bash someone over the head with the extreme for the ENTIRE content of a book without reining it in from time to time.
It makes the whole thing, frankly, a little boring. May 29, Paul O'Neill rated it really liked it. If you like books like Trainspotting, check this out.
Jul 29, Karl rated it did not like it. A very poorly written book that simply tried too hard to be funny and shocking, but ends up being too direct to be either.
A real shame that a satire on the music industry could not be a bit more clever and original. A friend gave me a loan of this a long while back but I wasn't sure about reading it.
I abandoned American Psycho near the end after becoming tired of the endless descriptions of designer clothing and the sexual violence, which got more and more gratuitous and unpleasant as the book went along.
Some reviewers compared Kill Your Friends to that book, so I put off starting it. I can see why they are compared but I found Niven's book far more engaging for a number of reasons.
The main character, Ste A friend gave me a loan of this a long while back but I wasn't sure about reading it. The main character, Steven Stelfox, is a narcissistic, drug-addled, violent, sexist racist.
I found his views and much of his behaviour repellent as I was meant to but he was often funny in a completely inappropriate way.
He's a caricature - a souped-up South Park character. Patrick Bateman in Easton Ellis's story is irredeemable and his violence is random and unstructured.
Stelfox has a purpose to his violence - to get on in his career - and this made it more 'understandable'. It's a satire on the music industry of the 's and is over the top in its approach.
However, I worked in a record store at that time and there is much truth among the invention and exaggeration. This helped make it more credible and entertaining for me.
There are some very funny moments in this book, some of them pretty dark. I found American Psycho almost entirely devoid of humour.
It won't be to everyone's taste. If you're easily offended, likely to take Niven too literally or don't enjoy descriptions of violence, drug taking and sexual deviance, give it a wide berth.
If you can see the irony, satire and poking of fun underlying this novel, you should enjoy it. Sep 23, Tattered Cover Book Store added it Shelves: staff-recommends , joe-recommends , indie-next-noteables.
Reading it, I felt like I was looking through a particularly wide peephole into a sordid world of drugs, sex, and booze populated by soulless characters who somehow live among us.
Needless to say, I was hooked. His whole world revolves about doing anything --be it illegal, immoral, or just plain wrong -- to get a hit record.
This novel is full of fun British slang that I find my "Kill Your Friends" is a special breed of novel. This novel is full of fun British slang that I find myself using much to the confusion of my friends.
For fans of Irvine Welsh, Bret Easton Ellis, or Chad Kultgen, this is a perfect book. At times shocking, this book kept a guilty smile on my face.
There were many times I had to put the book down, I was laughing so hard. This book is not for the faint of heart, or those who want to believe that pop music and hit records come out of some happy bubblegumland.
No, if you read this novel, the music we listen to comes from a fetid underworld of cocaine, illegal sex and murder. But it is a fun world to visit!
Charmless, derivative, dated rubbish. It captures the worst of the late s, which I suppose is an achievement of sorts, but in the style of an 18 year old who has swallowed Brett Easton Ellis whole and tried to reproduce him minus the satire and wit.
Feb 11, Melusina rated it did not like it. This book is so awful, I couldn't even be bothered to finish it which I usually don't do. Really, really horrible.
