Supermarket | Bobby Hall
30 posts | 25 read | 19 to read
The stunning debut novel from one of the most creative artists of our generation, Bobby Hall, a.k.a. Logic. Bobby Hall has crafted a mind-bending first novel, with prose that is just as fierce and moving as his lyrics. Supermarket is like Naked Lunch meets One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nestif they met at Fight Club.Ernest Cline, #1 New York Times Bestselling author of Ready Player One Flynn is stuckdepressed, recently dumped, and living at his moms house. The supermarket was supposed to change all that. An ordinary job and a steady check. Work isnt work when its saving you from yourself. But things arent quite as they seem in these aisles. Arriving to work one day to a crime scene, Flynns world collapses as the secrets of his tortured mind are revealed. And Flynn doesnt want to go looking for answers at the supermarket. Because something there seems to be looking for him. A darkly funny psychological thriller, Supermarket is a gripping exploration into madness and creativity. Who knew you could find sex, drugs, and murder all in aisle nine?

Don‘t know why people hate on this book. I thought it was a great read. Maybe conventional writing at times but, it‘s all the style of writing. Really liked the direction this book took and I wasn‘t expecting how it turned out. I‘d say it‘s a solid book.

I gave this a try but after 115 pages I couldn't keep reading. All of the characters talk the same - like a guy in high school trying to act tougher than he is. I figured out the twist pretty early. It was a little slowly paced and the writing style was annoying and hard to read. It's too bad, it had good potential!

Sophomoric, tedious, and dull. Bailed at 49% (3:13:37). Hall shouldn't quit his day job.

#Unpopularopinion time! I actually enjoyed it, & I didn't know who the author was beforehand. It needed better editing & some of the dialogue was unrefined, but I listened to the audio & the "juvenile" conversational tone makes sense. He narrated well, & after a slow start I became fully invested til the end. It's not for everyone, but this trip thru a tormented mind was pretty terrifying. The mental health aspect resonated with me. 3⭐️s

Like others have said, the dialogue is pretty cringe. It‘s a predictable book and the way Flynn got rid of Frank was not believable. It reminded me a lot of a certain movie. No spoilers, but if you‘ve read the book, you know what I‘m talking about. Also, things about it made me mad. It would be dangerous for Flynn to have a partner but Mia‘s devotion to him is framed as romantic. Still, a fun and fast read but I only read it as a Logic fan.

#supermarket is an excellent allegory about mental health and addiction

I knew exactly what was happening from the minute the red bouncy ball was introduced...I think I hyped this book up in my mind and ultimately I am walking away disappointed.

If I was in my twenties I‘d be all about this book. It‘s good writing but it has a lot of swearing in it ( not that I‘m against that) It‘s got a “not giving a F#@ “ juvenile feel to it. The writing is good, but the material is too immature for me. I think younger generations would enjoy it.

Currently reading...so far this is a fantastic book. I can‘t wait to finish it and yet at the same time I hope it never ends.

finally managed to finish this and it‘s truly one of the most disappointing and annoying reads i‘ve ever had. i was really intrigued by what this story potentially could be but Y I K E S. the story borders on trying to be somewhat satirical but coming off as cliche/tropey. too much needless padding. too many pop culture references so that u know how ‘cool‘ the author is.

I need something fun and fast-paced. I need the pages to turn - suspense, drama, sex, violence, murder, whatever it takes, just keep it moving.

Bobby Hall a/k/a Logic (rap/hip hop artist) wrote a book - and I really really enjoyed it! Full of twists, strange turns, and memorable characters. 4 out of 5!

Finally buckled down and finished this one!
This was like Fight Club 2.0! I really enjoyed this one! This book had a really laid back vibe. Small cast of characters so its easy to keep track of everybody. Its a book about writing a book! Whats not to love! Logic said hes working on other books and ill be there to buy whatever he puts out!

Ok so I love the rapper Logic so I had really high hopes for this book. I am not saying the book was terrible (it wasn‘t). But it was just ok to me. The “twist” did not feel that much of a big deal. I mean you were given many clues through out the book that things were not as they seemed. I did like the main character Flynn I feel like he was a well rounded character but the book was not as good as I would have expected.

Picked this up on a whim and totally loved it! It's a dark, twisty book surrounding one character's mental health disorders. I pretty much had all the twists figured out but this was still enjoyable.

I don‘t know guys. I liked it but I didn‘t. It was just weird and odd and kinda cool.

Finished this one pretty quickly! For his debut novel, I think it‘s pretty well done! I definitely would love to see the strength of his prose grow as he continues writing, because some of the dialogue was a bit juvenile and cliche, but I liked the twists, and he did a great job of dropping clues throughout the book. I don‘t know if I would‘ve picked it up if he hadn‘t come into my store, but I‘m glad I read it! 3.5 stars.

So Bobby Hall‘s (aka the rapper Logic, for those that know him that way) debut novel came out yesterday. I was working the info desk at Barnes & Noble last night, when I look up and there he is, signing all the books on the shelf! Of course I grabbed one for myself, and they were all gone within 15 minutes. It was so cool!

DivineDiana Fantastic! Being at the right place at the right time! I like him as a person. Interested in seeing how he writes. 🤔 5mo

Im so excited!! This came out today and i ordered it to pick up in store because i cant wait! And i had a coupon! For all my non hip hop fans, Bobby Hall is a rapper (i say lyricist) by the name of Logic. I cant wait to see what his writing is like in this book!
