Smells like Crap
Inspired by T.S. Eliot's (1888-1965)'s quote, "In my beginning is my end." The titled responsion is...
Smells Like Crap Inspired by T.S. Eliot (1914) is a book that is so popular that it is often considered the first book to be written based on an author's true feelings. Inspired by T.S. Eliot (who was a student at Harvard), Smells Like Crap is about a young woman who moves into a strange house and finds a whole world of smells, tastes and sights that are completely foreign to her. When her neighbours move out, she begins to smell a horrible odour and then has a vision of a man in a white lab coat coming in with a briefcase. The briefcase contains something that has gone horribly wrong in the past, and she then has visions of a man coming and taking it from her and keeping it secret from the rest of the world.
Smells Like Crap also has a lot of nuances that is very confusing, so it is definitely worth reading if you are trying to figure out what this novel is all about. Some of the descriptions and metaphors used are a little too over the top for my taste, but the story is compelling enough to keep me reading. As far as the writing itself goes, it is decent, although some parts read like they were ripped off of another book. I did find the language a little bit difficult to understand, but I still managed to get a lot out of the story.
I enjoyed Smells Like Crap and will definitely give it another try when the next time I am feeling down and need to escape from reality. I'm not sure what made this book so unique, but it was certainly something that kept me reading. It was interesting to see a writer at work. In this book, T.S. Eliot is trying to tell us what he is thinking in his day-to-day life. In this book, he gives us his true emotions, and the fact that they are totally different from his normal emotions makes the story even more powerful. Highly Recommended!
