    1. Folks, the only way to read Celine is to understand you re reading a sleazy, sexy novelization of Looney Tunes This guy is kinetic energy

    2. best book i ve ever read, at this point in my life everyone rips off celine, and no one gives him any credit.

    3. London Bridge is a continuation of what you got in Guignol s Band I thought this one was better, or maybe after reading them both, they make sense as a whole I mean, it s really a buy the ticket take the ride situation as in, this one scene with these two characters screaming and beating and pissing on one another has been going on for, what, 30 pages now But if you re a writer yourself, or just the type of reader who appreciates words being pounded into shapes never seen before, C line is you [...]

    4. Louis Ferdinand Celine s London Bridge is, along with Guignol s Band, an extended interpolation into parts of Journey to the End of the Night specifically between the World War I scenes and the scenes set in Africa Basically, the two volumes are about Ferdinand Bardamu s adventures in London during the latter part of World War I.One pretty much has tpo read Guignol s band first, because London Bridge is a continuation in fact it s subtitled Guignol s Band II Ferdinand has teamed up with Sosthene [...]

    5. If you re reading an English translation of Celine that s NOT by Ralph Manheim, you re in for a slog.If you can get past that, it s still brilliant Ferdinand tags along with a con artist who is by turns an engineer and a mystic, so demented and self absorbed he s starting to believe his own cons They answer an add to help a turgid old Brit colonel design gas masks for the front a competition really, with the contestants expected to put on their inventions and brave the same mustard gas floating [...]

    6. another mystery I never got this book did I give it away so soon I have to read it I have to I got another copy and started it for good measure Shit then I read it.POW I revelled in Guignol s Band this obsessive blacking out hallucinatory fantasy is kind of emptied out when it comes down to it Having fun with teh sick o great lit rature, to make a kiddy comment like that is unthinkable when it comes to serving justice to any writer who automatically gets 5 stars for a title yes, it does.But I l [...]

    7. Celine lost control of his subject and of his mind in this one, which continues where Guignal s Band lets off With much relief, I finally gave up on London Bridge after 150 pages.
