Lone Wolf World
A great novel, so well written, so many insightful observations. The book inhabits the mind of an outcast who hates the world and decides to leave his mark on it. He's an intellectual who just doesn't fit in. Very quick to judge others and their flaws. You will probably find elements of yourself within its terse pages.
Just finished reading Anthony's "Lone Wolf World." A raw, intense novel about a sociopath whose egocentricity and narcissism was ingrained during his childhood. A powerful read.

This was an intriguing book. Despite, or perhaps because of, the constant narrative of the main character, I found myself compellingly curious about him – what makes him tick, what will he do next?
Craig - ' “I’m done with communicating. It’s a misuse of my vitality. The tank is getting low. “. Every bodies tank is low now. The everyday discourse of people to understand each other, perhaps to find common ground or at least to simply agree to disagree is no longer possible. We can’t even agree to disagree now. Somebody has to win and somebody has to lose. It’s bull shit. In the end everybody loses. Langford nails it.'
Jo - The book grabbed me right from page one. I see so much of myself in the thoughts and actions of the Lone Wolf. Enthralling. A roller-coaster ride!
There is no place more lonely than the inner city. No place more fitting to make observations on the fallibility of human beings and the easiest to design their downfall. Ideology isn’t his motivation. He hates everyone, equally. His voice is unique. And he will be heard.
This bravely ambitious novel is like a modern ‘American Psycho’. A triumphant literary work exploring tragic and often inhumanly-human consequences. Heartbreaking, complex and masterful.
