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?
Being a humongous fan of Bobby Hall, also known as his stage name Logic, I absolutely had to read this book. I really didn’t know what to expect from Bobby as an author, but he is a fantastic creator and always puts out is phenomenal music.
Overall I really enjoyed the storyline, though I thought a lot of parts were predictable to me, I still enjoyed the read. The pace of the book starts out slow and then speeds up as we get to the middle of the book and I couldn’t stop reading. I had to finish it and see what was going to happen to the main character, Flynn. Speaking of Flynn, he was so likable. I wanted nothing more but Flynn to make out good in the end. I was rooting for him throughout the book. He is kind, caring and just needs to get out of his own head. I thought it was important that this book revolves around mental health. I can’t be more grateful that someone with his platform is talking openly about his struggles with mental health through Flynn. With the book revolving around the topic of mental health it made Flynn more relatable to me again making me want to root for him.
I cannot wait to see how his writing improves as he creates more stories. He is undeniably creative, comes up with some crazy shit and touches on subjects that most others run away from. Bobby did great job telling his story and I thought this was a great debut novel.
Overall I give this a solid ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ rating.
