Reviews - What do customers think about The Serial Killer's Diet Book?

This book is tremendous  Jun 19, 2007
This book is absolutely tremendous. Postupack is a gifted writer. This book should be taught in literary classes in college or advanced placement English in high school.

It's both humorous and thought provoking. Without question, this is one of the more substantial books I have ever read -- certainly, since college. I can't deny the fact I had to look up words and some historical references. Postupack appears to be much smarter than the average bear.

I can't help but believe that this book will someday be considered a literary masterpiece.

Great Book!  Aug 15, 2002
This is a great read. It keeps you hooked and you will not want to put the book down until you finish. It was fun to read how each character developed in the book. I definitely recommend "The Serial Killer's Diet Book."
Hungry For a Great Read???  Dec 31, 2001
This book was one of the best reads I have had in a while. Postupack uses a vast array of literary knowledge to incorporate his characters into an exciting and dramatic plot. I couldn't put the book down! Enjoy!
Tour de force!  Dec 14, 2001
In the spirit of Rabelais, yes! The Serial Killer's Diet Book has scholarship, philosophy, intellectual inquiry, and spiritual yearning, but also boundless entertainment, with the compelling plot of a mystery-thriller, all-too-human characters, and lots of humor! One moment you are ruminating on the existence of God and the soul, the next you are laughing out loud at Devon DeGroot's detectives as they search fo the "Cold-Cut Killer." A social satire, the SKDB is also a profound inquiry into morals and meaning, in a world that at times seems meaningless and absurd. Historical and literary references abound, as we follow Fred Orbis (truly one of the great characters in literature), in his determined yet misguided effort to be thin.

The book itself takes the form of a string quartet--four separate voices/groups of characters, like four instruments, each separate, yet joining with each other to create the piece of music as a whole. The beautiful poetry of the Elizabeth sections; the Rabelaisian hyperbole of Fred Orbis; the dark philosophy of Darby/Philep; the high comedy of Devon DeGroot, the four sections alternating in an ABCD pattern throughout the novel. (Michael Cunningham's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Hours only alternated three sections!) The plays on words, allusions, the homage to Joyce and Finnegan's Wake (the marvelous chapter where a pivotal clue is written in "Finnegans Wakean," and can only be solved by the rumpled former scholar who took to drink and lives in an alley off Seventh and Bleecker. And the poignant passage, beautifully Shakespearean, in which Fred Orbis questions the value of a soul).

This is a novel that takes chances, and delivers, and in Kevin Postupack we have found our Rabelais. The Serial Killer's Diet Book is a tour de force, and Kevin Postupack is an author to be reckoned with.

This is a must-read!  Oct 26, 2001
Kevin Postupack is an inspired author and it truly comes through in his prose. The Serial Killer's Diet Book is so rich, one could use it to study human behavior, history, philosophy, or spirituality. But despite the abundant opportunities to learn, the reader can opt to relax and enjoy the story if that is his or her preferred style. This book is engaging and easy to read. Postupack's character development is beyond compare and you'll find yourself instantly invested in the characters. I would recommend this for avid readers and casual readers alike. Enjoy!
