Sean Penn's novella "Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff"
Sean Penn wrote a novella. I saw an article that said the novella is garbage. And I saw another article which actually had some excerpts. It's garbage.https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/se ... c9e5fa89a2
Quotes from the article which quotes the book:
“Hence, his life remains incessantly infused with her identity-infidelity, and her abhorrent ascensions to those constant salacious sessions of sexual solitaire she’d seen as self-regard.” ― page 11
“Whenever he felt these collisions of incubus and succubus, he punched his way out of the proletariat with the purposeful inputting of covert codes, thereby drawing distraction through Scottsdale deployments, dodging the ambush of innocents astray, evading the viscount vogue of Viagratic assaults on virtual vaginas, or worse, falling passively into prosaic pastimes.” ― page 36
“Behind decorative gabion walls, an elderly neighbor sits centurion on his porch watching Bob with surreptitious soupçon.” ― page 71
“While the privileged patronize this pickle as epithet to the epigenetic inequality of equals, Bob smells a cyber-assisted assault emboldened by right-brain Hollywood narcissists.” ― page 99
The premise of the novella isn't that bad, but that prose above is garbage. It reminds me a lot of beatnik stuff and postmodernist stuff. Both of which I dislike.
