[Novel] Tropic of Cancer (Henry Miller)

Tropic of Cancer

Book

While Tropic of Cancer may come off like ramblings of a sex crazed maniac at first, you soon realize it’s a fantastic satyric representation of the ridiculousness of modern life and human nature in general.

Positive:
Negative:
The text flows and is pleasant to read despite incorporating fairly heavy words
A bit hard to follow, especially when it enters its metaphysical passages
Wacky, interesting, likable, relatively profound characters
The story is basically just random episodes from the guy’s insane life
Full of genuinely funny black humor
Though-provoking on life in general
