African Psycho Its title recalls Bret Easton Ellis s infamous book, but while Ellis s narrator was a blank slate, African Psycho s protagonist is a quivering mass of lies, neuroses, and relentless internal chatter Gregoire Nakobomayo, a petty criminal, has decided to kill his girlfriend Germaine He s planned the crime for some time, but still, the act of murder requires a bit of psychological and logistical preparation Luckily, he has a mentor to call on, the faraccomplished serial killer Angoualima The fact that Angoualima is dead doesn t prevent Gregoire from holding lengthy conversations with him Little by little, Gregoire interweaves Angoualima s life and criminal exploits with his own Continuing with the plan despite a string of botched attempts, Gregoire s final shot at offing Germaine leads to an abrupt unraveling Lauded in France for its fresh and witty style, African Psycho s inventive use of language surprises and relieves the reader by injecting humor into this disturbing subject.

  3. Overall I did like this book, but I also expected a lotfrom it I think in naming it after Ellis s American Psycho and having it compared to Beckett, Dostoevsky, Camus and even Salinger who are basically all my favourite authors meant Mabanckou s book was under a lot of pressure from me to be just as amazing It follows Gregoire Nakobomayo who, under the influence of a dead killer by the name of Angoualima, decides he wants to become, too, a famous killer Like a lot of other reviewers Overall I did like this book, but I also expected a lotfrom it I think in naming it after Ellis s American Psycho and having it compared to Beckett, Dostoevsky, Camus and even Salinger who are basically all my favourite authors meant Mabanckou s book was under a lot of pressure from me to be just as amazing It follows Gregoire Nakobomayo who, under the influence of a dead killer by the name of Angoualima, decides he wants to become, too, a famous killer Like a lot of other reviewers have said, the internal monologue reminded meof Dostoevsky and Camus s prose than Ellis s, as this novel I found wasabout his internal psychosis and his growing urge to perform a horrific act that he can t physically manifest Rather than it being a comment on society, African Psycho turns inwards to it s protagonist s head to the point where even Greg can t see past his own ...

  4. Really disturbing, in a good way It held a lot of promise, and kept building up momentum, and then it never really delivered That was disappointing.

  6. This book was a slow burn, so I was expecting it to be fantastic as it progressed The ending was so anticlimactic I wouldn t pick it up again.

  7. Yes, I love vulgarity I claim it loud and clear I love it because only it says what we are, without hideous masks we wear by nature, which turns us into mean beings, hypocrites, ceaselessly running after decency, a ...

  8. A slim novel with a rather unique narrator angry, frustrated, misogynistic, and delusional Our dear Gregoire aspires to commit murder like his idol, a serial killer named Angoualima This is as much about the struggle of conscience as it is the frustration of the individual in relation to society.

  9. This is not a pleasant book to read It will make you wince, and it will make you retch This little book may be one of my hidden gems and I picked it up purely for the title and found so muchThe story of a man trying to emulate his favourite serial killer Angoualima, this is a man so filled with hatred of women, it has terrifying echoes of modern day incelsbut also how the very worst circumstances a man can endure in childhood can mould him.It also needs to be recognised what an This is not a pleasant book to read It will make you wince, and it will make you retch This little book may be one of my hidden gems and I picked it up purely for the title and found so muchThe story of a man trying to emulate his favourite serial killer Angoualima, this is a man so filled with hatred of women, it has terrifying echoes of modern day incelsbut also how the very worst circumstances a man can endure in ...
