Broken Bulbs by Eddie Wright
Frank Fisher is nothing. He wants to be something. When a mysterious young woman named Bonnie offers assistance by injecting seeds of inspiration directly into his brain, Frank finds himself involved in a twisting mystery full of addiction, desperation and self-discovery. Broken Bulbs, a novella by Eddie Wright, tells the story of the lengths one young man will go in the pursuit of somethingness. ., .the absolute perfect spot-on portrait of the mind of an addict.
I didn't like Broken Bulbs at all. It was all sorts of messed up and weird. I think it was one of those stories that's supposed to be a metaphor for something. If it was, it went completely over my head. I read the book, and I'm still not sure what the hell was going on.
It almost seemed like the book was trying too hard to be cool. I would label it somewhere in between hipster, and bizzaro horror. Both of those genres are incredibly difficult for me to understand. I really did enjoy the screenplay that the main character was writing. If the whole book was like that, I think I would have enjoyed it much more. I didn't care for the main character at all. I might have my friend that does guest reviews on my blog review Broken Bulbs. She usually likes those type of books. Hopefully she can understand the book better than I can, and give it a more through review.
I give Broken Bulbs: 1/5.

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I was in no way compensated for this review.
