Supermarket Review

Every time I give a review on books from my favorite sports icon or artist and it isn’t great as expected hurts me a lot. This doesn’t exempt Supermarket by Logic and frankly the rating may not be good at all. First, I’d like to say the Bobby Hall a.k.a Logic is fairly bold and courageous to try writing a novel. He is by far one of the most respected rap artist these days and the debut novel isn’t as great as what he has achieved.

One thing that struck me most is that his writing style is fairly poor that most writers do. It can be considered that this is his first novel but didn’t the publisher ever polished his work before entirely publishing it? Is it because they wanted to see if the Supermarket book still can draw crowds in the language that Logic or Bobby Hall is known? Who knows but I suggest the publishers could have done something to attract not only this great artist’s fans but also regular avid readers who don’t listen to rap.

One reviewer from GoodReads said that his writing style is really poor that a 5th grader can do far better. That might be an exaggeration but there is truth to it. Bobby Hall writes conversations with informal phrases and  names are mentioned almost in every paragraph on the whole book. That is sad but some people can live with it.

Also, the plot in general isn’t unique in any way as it is too common for most psychological thrillers made in the past. Others even feel that the Logic’s Supermarket characters are borrowed from other great favorite psychological thrillers and most notably to that of “Fight Club“. Flynn is a character entirely based on the protagonist in “Fight Club“. The other characters as well greatly reflects to people he personally know and it is claimed that Flynn is actually Bobby Hall’s persona. Also Mia, is an exact description of Logic’s ex-wife.

But what makes me a little upset about the book is the entire writing of the book itself. It was a poor attempt of a funny psychological thriller and it is written in a tone like that of a juvenile. I may have intense consideration that Supermarket by Bobby Hall is a debut novel and is generally immature. With all hopes that he writes another novel it will be more worthy of a read to be realistic and mature.

But in fairness to the “meat” of the Supermarket book by Logic, he clearly showed what and how depression and anxiety affects every person. This is a good book to help someone who looks upon Logic as a rapper and in depression. I’m also particularly aware that music improves treatment of depression so I’d say this book surely can help. It encourages people with depression to open up and clear his or her about it. My appreciation for Logic’s effort to help is obvious but I can’t take out the fact that his first book Supermarket is a failed attempt to make a good book. Again, I would love to see Bobby Hall write another book better that Supermarket. Anyhow as a Logic fan, it still has entertainment value for me and it should not stop you from reading Supermarket by Bobby Hall.
