Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Than It's Predecessor Many will hold up Less Than Zero as the better of the two, but I think it's more interesting to see the affluent young people of LTZ turned into adults who are desperate to keep their youth and, as a result, become monsters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from If you liked Less Than Zero This novel is often written off as a cash grab from it's spectacular predecessor (Less Than Zero), but I think that Ellis still tells an interesting story and the characters are every bit as fascinating here as they were the first time around. This is pretty dark stuff and it can sometimes feel meandering, but I have never read another author that is able to give me such a specific feeling of what LA is like in a specific time.
