This book had no depth what-so-ever! It is exactly what it is, a deranged drug induced dream that is sickening. I have never read anything like this, and I'm glad, not to say the least. Naked lunch doesn't have a plot line, it is mearly a series of thoughts strung together in no particular order, jumping from spot to spot. Mabey i've missed the point of this novel, but personaly, i feel that there isn't a point. Some parts of this novel disgusts me, for instence, the part where Burroughs is disgusing the woman shooting up opium, and how she's ripping her leg apart, then goes on to talk about what it realy looks like to shoot up opium, and the waxy skin of a junky, it disturbed me. A Clockwork Orange also disturbed me, but at least it did it with class, Naked Lunch has no class. If you realy want to be disgusted, take the book out of the library, and don't buy this BS.
