    One thought on “Eeeee eee eeee”

    1. I read this book and was completely frustrated by it. Imagine this, boring suburban kid drives around and has musings and thoughts that are as equally engaging. Add some dolphins and maybe a bear. The dolphins are homicidal. The bear is depressed. There might be aliens at the end. The president. It sounds good in the abstract but the execution is lacking. The writing is not engaging. Also, I saw Tao Lin read at The New Yipes in Oakland. I ate one of his grapes when he wasn't looking. I talked to [...]

    2. This book was truly godawful. Hipster pretention at its absolute worst. I went in honestly expecting to like this-- I was incredibly optimistic. The optimism began to wane several dozen pages in, and finally I only finished it out of determination to WIN over this piece of crap. And once I WON, I threw it across the room in frustration. If this book had a face I would punch it.

    3. I think I might have been the first person to read this book except for tao lin: that makes me better than a lot of other people: when I read this book, my penis grew very hard, I broke a wooden table with my penis: Tao Lin wrote this book in a library and maybe in nowhere PA, in a town with a place called "Ming Moon" I ate there, he told me about his childhood and how he loved the song, "Sweet Home Alabama", he said he liked to replace the word "Alabama" with Florida, cuz he is from Florida you [...]

    4. I read this book in sporadic one-hour installments during trips to a nearby Barnes & Noble. The Barnes & Noble has four floors. On the second or third floor, there's a café with a big sign at its entrance prohibiting patrons from bringing in food from outside vendors, but on the fourth floor, where the fiction is, I can sit on the floor or in a folding chair in the section where readings are held and eat anything I want. That’s not true; technically, I can’t eat in these places, but [...]

    5. Da li ste ikada gledali film "Ta divna stvorenja" tj. "Animals are beautiful people"? U njemu ima scena u kojoj majmun u pustinji otklapa kamen, ispod njega vidi zmiju, uplaši se i padne u nesvest (u međuvremenu se kamen vrati na zmiju). Kada se osvesti on opet uradi istu stvar i tako u krugE tako sam ja ponovo pao na sinopsis na koricama knjige Evo šta mi je bilo obećano: montipajtonovski humor, razorna društvena kritika, zabava, koplandovski stil, rani bret-iston-elisovski stil, beket u t [...]

    6. I submitted this to Better Book Titles today. Hope they'll accept it:It's just a joke :) no hard feelings, Tao fans!

    7. No Star Rating Possible.Sara’s blue Popsicle was confused. I am as confused as her Popsicle about this book.Eeeee Eee Eeee is an acid trip in your hands.I don’t work for Dominos. Maybe I could but probably not. At least not in Orlando.Sometimes I make illegal U turns too but have only killed 1 squirrel. That I know of anyway. I ran it over. Were there more? Maybe, it was an accident and I’m sorry. This book was recommended by a friend and I started reading it. is good like that. Getting r [...]

    8. Let me first say that I love and admire the title of this novel. I love and especially admire that each line of e's is a different length: 5, 3, 4. I can't explain why this appeals to me. Next let me say that the design of this book, inside and outside, is nearly sublime. A notch below sublime. Subsublime. Melville House has a knack for these things. I think I love and admire the title for its asymmetry but I don't know why asymmetry should appeal to me more than symmetry.It just does.Now, the n [...]

    9. Reading Tao Lin's novel is like going on an acid trip led by Thomas Pynchon and Richard Scarry. This book is determined to take you places and it will not be content with your contentedness. Not something to curl up with, rather it's something you read and hope that the subway doesn't come because you are not sure if you are going to be able to pick back up where you left off. Yet it comes and you open the book back up and you think: well, I wasn't quite sure what was going on anyway. There is s [...]

    10. The dumbest book ever. I had such high hopes, and it was awful. There was nothing clever or funny about it. It was just irritating. I think I quit about 40 pages in.

    11. I like words. I like books that arrange words in nice ways. I borrowed this from the library because, at first glance, it seemed to arrange words in interesting ways. I thought it felt brisk and pleasant and lightly weird. What I fell into was a nasty, disgusting, violently awful world that felt like a Marcel Dzama painting and a Blaise Larmee comic without heart simultaneously exchanging picturing of glittering pandas on tumblr. It hurt really bad to read this. It made me want to live my life i [...]

    12. I had no preconceived notion of this book, my third experience of Tao Lin. I loved Shoplifting from American Apparel yet Richard Yates gave me a headache. Having already bought all of the novels I thought I should definitely keep reading in the hope that something else marvellous may happen. But nothing really did.It's experimental literature, it doesn't lend itself to traditional terms such as enjoy or plot but it does make an attempt to be one of my favourite types of fiction - human study thr [...]

    13. Whenever the author approaches something that could be an interesting story line, he interupts it with dolphins, bears, moose, and/or hamsters. However, he did use very good punctionation, so he has that going for him.I am not sure if I am most angry at the author for writing it, the publisher for publishing it, or Meera for suggusting it.

    14. Tao Lin seems to get a lot of shit from people, and I guess I can kind of see why, but, based on this brilliant book, I must disagree with those who despise his work to some extreme extent. This book is hilarious, but, by the end, also quite sad and insightful. The pointless celebrity cameos and wacky surrealist antics and brooding insights on everything from nihilism to romance are all layered with some heavy doses of irony and sarcastic satire, but there is, somewhere among the sardonic rubble [...]

    15. Probably the best book title of the millennium, and I truly believe this in my heart of hearts. I like the title as much as I hate the cover (check the Spanish edition, much better, unironic, with a dolphin and not a bear, since, ya know, it's dolphins the ones who say eeee eee eeee). The title itself is not only the best part of the book but a contemporary art masterpiece by itself.You wouldn't believe, as the creative type myself, how jealous I am of that title for a contemporary novel.The nov [...]

    16. Absurd, depressing and sincerely insincere. Plus there is a Jawbreaker quote, which is awesome because there are never any Jawbreaker quotes in books.

    17. I like this book. I can read this book in any mood and enjoy it, I think. The words all have meaning that my brain can process. After I read the words I feel emotions. Each sentence makes me feel emotion. I will read this again later on and probably more times later on.

    18. Okay so a third book review in just a few days, not bad for how far apart they have recently been. This book is closer to Zachary German than Lin's novella. It is also a lot closer to andersen prunty. In a way it reads a lot like zerostrata, why is no one noticing that having a conversation with a bear is weird. I mean they do notice giving half your pay to a dolphin is weird, but really why is the dolphin not in water. But really do we care? I think not. Unlike his other book temporal integrity [...]

    19. Shit-eating grin is probably my favorite quote ever.I like Andrew and the way he thinks. I think the way Tao Lin portrays people and their thoughts is very similar to how people think in real life, they just don't express it out loud. I recognized a lot of my own thoughts and feelings in the book but they are things I didn't think the rest of the world were walking around thinking as well.Not everyone is like that of course. But while the book is about depressed, lonely people it is also strange [...]

    20. I can't even articulate by disappointment and frustration with this book properly, it's left me too scatterbrained. It somehow manages to be both over-saturated with surreal gimmicks, and somehow also deadening and dull. I am tempted to send a copy to Harold Bloom so that he can pontificate about the death of the novel.I'm not sure if I can call it worthless. It's empty.

    21. The reviews for Tao Lin's work have been extraordinary, so I must be a damned idiot. Some kind of story line, syntax, sympathetic character, action, resolution, or point would have been appreciated. If Tao Lin wants to write about his own nihilistic philosophy, he should not do it under the guise of legitimate fiction. Oh, and there are moody, talking bears and dolphins.

    22. This is the worst book i've ever read. It was as non-sensical as a dream. A bear suddenly appears in your car and talks to youbut it wants to detonate a bomb somewhere with your helpd in the meantime you have a crush on some girl you work with. Nooooi couldnt take it.

    23. This book is totally hipster trash, but it's written from a place of boredom and apathy and anger and depression that appeals to me.

    24. This book is definitely worth reading. It's a quick read and contains some of the most novel writing I have ever seen. I assure you that you will stop at least once and think "I have never seen a sentence like that in my entire life". That's a gratifying feeling. But there is a lot of literary value to this book-- see below:This book is to absurdity what Super Flat Times is to nausea. Both are examples of what happens to characters who are stuck in a world apparently devoid of meaning and signif [...]

    25. When will this trend end??Yet another 20'somethin' yr old author who writes like the modern version of Bret Easton Ellistexting.Formulaic, contrived, a big yawn.Tao's style is kitsch, embarrassingly kooky and off-beat, snarky and obvious that owes more to the ironic images on 50/50 t-shirts in canary yellow and soccer green of robots administering enemas, ham sandwiches, coyotes obscured in a cloud of mist, or anything equally as 'tongue in cheek' and 'indie' screen printed on them that you find [...]

    26. It's quite possible this book just went over my heador it's possible that this book has nothing at all of interest to offer. I was once an Art school student and maybe the book would have "spoken" to me at that point, but I was also in high school and a self-indulgent little brat.

    27. Uuužaaasno. Šta je uopšte ovo? Ne znam kako sam ja stekla utisak da ova knjiga ima potencijala, verovatno iz naziva ili korice. Rečenice nemaju smisla, nema neke radnje, sve je previše dosadno Pročitala sam prvih 20 strana i onda listala i čitala neku neku scenu Ovo je haos, nikako ne pokušavajte

    28. Eeeee Eee Eeee gets better than it starts. it starts with the reputed tao or the expected tao lin, which is a kinduv updated beavis-&-butthead routine. constant defensive mockery coupled with surreal episodes that function as escape chutes out of narratives that have veered too close to actual confession. a dead-on description of a painful and common moment of (contemporary?) early adulthood: boredom and angst and suicide "how do you have fun?" is the book's repeated question. a familiar top [...]
