Stelfox: In every age men are born, who, in their heart in the black of their blood are warriors. But for most of us there are no longer wars to fight.
What must they do? These men? Stelfox: Power comes and the unrelentless chase for the unattainable.
Stelfox: At some point in the coming year one of us will be fired. I have no intention on it being me. Stelfox: Imagine you are standing on wafer thin ice.

The deeper you read into the book, the more annoyed you get by the angry and frustrated main character-this was the first book i threw away after the first half, as it did not become better but just worser and worser by every page.
If you are in general a happy person and you want to feel sad and frustrated i can recommend you this book-but otherwise please don't waste your time or money on this.
Possibly the most psychopathic narrator I've ever encountered in a book. This guy was fucked up. An enjoyable read. Apr 05, Naomi rated it did not like it Shelves: fiction.
I've read "American Psycho" by Bret Easton Ellis, and "A Clockwork Orange" by Anthony Burgess, so I am not unfamiliar with novels that contain a lot of violence or depravity, nor do I automatically dislike them.
For that matter, I have read, and greatly enjoyed, several works by Chuck Palahniuk, who is also known for works that contain elements that are difficult to stomach as a reader.
Despite all of this, I did not like "Kill Your Friends" by John Niven at all. I think my problem with this nove I've read "American Psycho" by Bret Easton Ellis, and "A Clockwork Orange" by Anthony Burgess, so I am not unfamiliar with novels that contain a lot of violence or depravity, nor do I automatically dislike them.
I think my problem with this novel is that all of the violence, in all of its forms, seems utterly unnecessary. Sure, it does move the plot line forward, since the only reason why the main character's life ends up as it does is because of specific violent acts he commits.
However, the rest, especially the descriptions of his sexual preferences and conquests, his drug habits and messed up mindset, don't always seem to be necessary.
It seems as if the author wanted to write something as awful as possible, just to see if he could get away with it.
Yes, he did get away with it, but does it make the work any better? That's questionable. It makes it difficult to read, but there are still elements of humor and intelligence mixed in throughout.
It took me multiple tries to get through the first chapter, and then, all of a sudden, I could speed through the rest of it. Despite the violence in the novel, and the language, it is still a popular book to this day, because of its social commentary, and because of, once again, its intelligence and observations of humanity.
But "Kill Your Friends"? This just seems to be violence and gore for the sake of violence and gore.
Is this the worst book I've ever read? Definitely not. However, I don't feel like I got anything from it, other than a definite dislike of most of the characters in the novel.
Of course, if you're into things about violence and drug use and sexual violence etc. But if you're looking for something that's more intelligent, yet still has some of the elements mentioned in the previous sentence, then there are many other novels out there that I would recommend before this one.
Jan 22, Tania rated it it was amazing. You need to have a dark, morbid sense of humor to enjoy this book. So funny, the writing was nasty and vicious but brilliant!
Dec 14, Sabina Safarova rated it liked it. Whenever I give 3 stars to a book, it means I have no idea what to think about it.
The book is absolutely dismal, the darkest dark of a human. People working in that filed know all about it, and the book is narrated by one of them — an Artist and Repertoire Manager, whose mind is burst Whenever I give 3 stars to a book, it means I have no idea what to think about it.
People working in that filed know all about it, and the book is narrated by one of them — an Artist and Repertoire Manager, whose mind is bursting with vicious ideas all pointing at getting richer and by doing so letting all the others down in the mud, and whose soul got rotten.
Reading the book I wondered what could have made him a monster, what kind of childhood experience could possibly beat all the humanity out of him.
