Rotten Reviews: Journey to The End of The Night

“Most readers will find Journey to The End of  The Night a revolting book; its vision of human life will seem to them a hideous nightmare. It does not carry within itself adequate compensation for the bruising and battering of the spirit with which one reads it: there is no purgative effect from all these disgusts. If this is life, then it is better not to live.”

J.D. Adams, New York Times Book Review

Excerpted from: Bernard, Andre, and Bill Henderson, eds. Pushcart’s Complete Rotten Reviews and Rejections. Wainscott, NY: Pushcart Press, 1998.
