#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER The stunning debut novel from one of the most creative artists of our generation, Bobby Hall, a.k.a. Logic. "Bobby Hall has crafted a mind-bending first novel, with prose that is just as fierce and moving as his lyrics. Supermarket is like Naked Lunch meets One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest--if they met at Fight Club."--Ernest Cline, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Ready Player One Flynn is stuck--depressed, recently dumped, and living at his mom's house. The supermarket was supposed to change all that. An ordinary job and a steady check. Work isn't work when it's saving you from yourself. But things aren't quite as they seem in these aisles. Arriving to work one day to a crime scene, Flynn's world collapses as the secrets of his tortured mind are revealed. And Flynn doesn't want to go looking for answers at the supermarket. Because something there seems to be looking for him. A darkly funny psychological thriller, Supermarket is a gripping exploration into madness and creativity. Who knew you could find sex, drugs, and murder all in aisle nine?… (mehr)

Ernest Cline meets Chuck Palahniuk trying to be Grady Hendrix.

Not a bad idea for a novel but the author seems obsessed with making offbeat pop culture references and pointing out that he included non-white characters. Bleh. ( )

This book is very eye opening and intriguing. This is my favorite book by far. I’m really interested in psychology and learning about mental health issues, so this book was truly interesting to me. ( )

It was kind of entertaining, but the big twist was super predictable and done with all the subtlety of a bag of hammers. I also felt like the book was a bit too self-aware for its own good at times.

My last big complaint is the facile resolution to mental illness with the ending and the way the whole thing plays to the "tortured artist" stereotype.

Then again, I probably would have been it bit more lenient with it, had it not been so hyped up online as this amazing book, when it's kind of mediocre at best. ( )

Supermarket, a novel by polymath rap artist Bobby Hall (aka Logic), opens with a graphic murder scene that leaves the reader baffled about the narrator’s identity and the genesis of the action taking place. Thankfully, Flynn quickly rewinds the tale to provide some backstory. He is an aspiring writer (unsuccessful due to a severe lack of focus and perseverance) marooned in a small town in Oregon. Baker City is so insignificant that there are single-digit examples of its generically named commercial establishments- thus, opportunities are sparse. Flynn decides that Muldoon’s Supermarket might be a good place to gain temporary employment, assuage his mother’s fears about his deepening depression, disprove his ex-girlfriend’s assessment of his worthlessness, and leverage some material for his new novel. Flynn encounters many coworkers that he attempts to fictionalize, even though most of them are as stereotypical and one-dimensional as can be expected in most sub-standard plots. The only exceptions are Frank, who typifies all Flynn has been seeking as his main character; and Mia, who might qualify as a real love-interest as well as the model for a fictional one. What seems like a rather banal beginning takes a turn for strange when the line between Flynn’s fiction and reality begin to blur, ultimately culminating in an identity crisis with a violent climax. Hall explores the question of madness as creative inspiration and the defense mechanism of reinvented memory. Supermarket borrows heavily from the works of Chuck Palahniuk and Ken Kesey, reworking old ground and testing the boundaries of plausibility and coincidence. The novel also suffers from some questionable assumptions about mental illness diagnoses and treatment practices. As a first effort, Hall’s foray into fiction is entertaining and will undoubtedly delight his fan base, but will be unlikely to draw in new admirers on its own. ( )
