RARA-AVIS: dissing the pimp

hi everybody!

well, i finished iceberg slim's _pimp_. i surfed thru amazon and the rara-avis archives to see what others thought about the book. it appears that there aren't enough superlatives in english language to describe slim's book.

sorry to say it didn't impress me. the plot is uneven, the scenes often poorly chosen or repetitive, the dialogue is tiresome, the theme is murky, the descrip- tions ineffective, and what could have been a great cast of characters is reduced to a shallow backdrop for an egocentric narrative.
