My Loose Thread
The novel centers on Larry, a boy who has so little control over his own life ckoper sexual drives that he numbly repeats, “I’m really confused” like a modern-day mantra. It’s a dirty world we live in.
And Alex is also responsible for this line, the novel’s best: Larry fears that he might be gay, and lashes out violently in moments of uncomfortable sexual ambiguity: It seems simple enough. At moments in any other book I would have been pointing out a characters idiocy or ignorance I simply didn’t care. For sake of ridiculous comparisons I have to say that it reads almost as a postmodern poem that rejects capitalization thereby making every capital letter that much more important in the end. It made me wonder if the young man did find a way to break free from what really was a bondage of friendship.
Share his nihlistic vision, if you dare! This is the opposite. By the end, you no longer wonder how tragedies like Columbine happen, but why they don’t happen more often. Where sex was just something to do to kill an hour. Even when his mother dies he struggles to define his lack of emotion. There is an unflinching aspect to the writing that I find compelling – the casual nature of the relationships, the stark representation of subculture – but in seeking to portray a series of fundamentally vacuous lives, you also end up with something that feels very antiseptic.

But I do feel that to a degree the mindset of these characters can probably only be entirely understood by people we would deem to immature to cope with a novel like this. After hearing lots of positive things I was really excited to read it but I was just disappointed from beginning to end. Most of the time they are actually thinking about screwing someone else while they are screwing George.
This book should be exceedingly disturbing, but it isn’t.
His shockaholic fiction ignores the superficial and drives straight down the dark road of teenaged boys emotionally ruined by the fragmented environments they inhabit. The novel tackles subject matter such as incest, murder, self-harm, school shootings, and homosexuality versus homophobia — all in all it was not a pleasant read. No, I cannot explain.

I’ll give it 2 stars for that. Trivia About My Loose Thread.
This is a book about traumatized teenagers trying to process their trauma in a world where being gay isn’t really a big deal – or at least where the trauma of being gay is such a normal part of life that it no longer scans as traumatic.

He is numb to almost all that surrounds him. If shooting, hacking up, and strangling your school mates is not enough, Dennis threw in a little incestuous sex and gay issues along with a juvenile Nazi fan club.
