The best Kindle Antiartists published None. Popular Kindle Antiartists Ralph Pullins' debut novel is a work of art. And like all works of art, people will either dismiss it as pretentious, or have something deep within themselves that becomes ignited, or some will not "get it" but still appreciate its wealth of angst, depth, existential life questions, and overall message. No matter their response, like all art, the artist - or in this case the author - will have done his job.This story is about a lost, self destructive young art school drop out named Chris who is wandering around in life with nothing but his darkness. Fresh out of rehab, he does nothing but think. He is cynical, miserable and like an athlete who can't play his sport due to an egregious injury, Chris is an artist who can't art due to whatever injuries plaguing his mind. He can't create because he can't see beauty anymore, and whatever is determined to be beautiful by this world, he wants to destroy.Throughout his tale, he looks for the highs (that don't involve substance abuse) that take him out of his pit of self pity, for a moment anyway - whether it be through inflicting pain upon himself or breaking things or associating himself with other miserable people or pushing people who care about him away - but he is never quite buying into it. He is so self righteous about the world and those who live in it and then so self destructive and full of crap at the same time that you don't know whether to slap him or hug him. Because when he's self righteous, he's right. And when he's full of crap, he's still right. Ralph writes in stream of consciousness much of the time. Whether it be the thoughts in Chris' head or the dialogue between characters who have reached a certain level of understanding, it is an interesting peek into the rabbit trails that exist within creative minds. Ralph is a gifted writer and has a real eye for details and expression. The story is edgy and disturbing but the foundation of it is the base of pretty much every human being, no matter how lost one is. Throughout the story, you can see how his encounters with certain beautiful things keeps him tethered to his true nature. When Chris finally has his revelation, brought on by an ancient work of art, he is able to at last accept this simple life truth: It is in the living that we find the beauty and the beauty is in the living. Outstanding debut. I look forward to reading more works by this author. I highly recommend it.

  2. This book is one of the better exercises in character study that I have read in quite awhile You get to feel each changing emotion in the protagonist, Chris, and it is done so through the action, narration and conversations that the author puts him through It was brilliantly crafted and not a lot of novels these days let you feel what a character is feeling, specifically apathetics I should say an emerging apathetic Chris once had aspirations, but those are stripped away from him One of the best [...]


  3. Life is hard, isn t it But it s also survivable Ralph Pullins has written a painful and honest story that is a must read for anyone suffering from any addiction, and, I think, especially for those who don t understand addiction, but are living near someone who is suffering from drugs, alcohol, or whatever that destroys Beyond the value this book provides to those experiencing addition, it holds value in that it captures the feelings of men who believe they should be doing , but have lost their w [...]


  4. So this book Wow First, let me just say I almost didn t finish this book It doesn t have anything to do with the caliber of the writing, but for whatever reason the beginning was hard for me to invest in I didn t see myself connecting with the main character He was clearly broken and had a lot of self value issues, and normally that s not really something I do well with I mean, stuff like that makes me sad, and I m the queen of sparkles I don t like being sad , but I stuck it out.And OH MY GOD G [...]
