    Even having partially figured this out I still wasn't expecting the full reveal. Love love loved this. I also highly recommend listening to the authors music while reading. ...

    I love hip-hop. I teach a class on it. I love Logic. I've written about his music. He's a talented lyricist and extremely creative person. He's worked with Chuck D, Black Thought, Killer Mike, and other artists at the top of the game. I was eager to read this book. But it's not good...

    I do not blame Logic for this garbage. I blame his editor and the publisher for publishing it and charging people their hard-earned cash for it. Every single thing that novice authors are told not to do is included here. He must have had a thesaurus nearby? how many words can he subs...

    I enjoyed this book when I read it 20 years ago and it was called ?Fight Club?. It was also executed much, much, much better by that writer as well. But I read it because some of my high school students told me to. And I did. And now I can move on with life. ...

    Actual Rating: 2.5 Stars Merp. This started out rough and got better towards the middle, but the writing style was just a big nope for me. Ultimately, this felt like a Fight Club rip off and not in a good way. ...

    Flynn is a depressed artist who recently went through a horrible break-up with the girl of his dreams and now started working in a supermarket to find inspiration for his book. Throw in a crime scene, interesting co-workers and weird things happening, and you have Supermarket, an incre...

    My advice to Logic...surround yourself with people who tell you the truth. A brilliant lyricist doesn?t make a brilliant novelist, clearly. ...

    Zero stars. If I have ever read a worse book I can?t recall it right now. I hated every second of it. Horrible, stunted writing. Godawful narration. I can?t believe this was published. It?s like a high school assignment to write in the style of Fight Club. Terrible. I award you...

    Ok, I debated rating this a two, instead settling on middle of the road. That doesn?t mean I liked it?at ALL. In fact, I couldn?t wait for it to end. The three stars, then, reflect only the ingenuity of the author. With that said.... It?s difficult to discuss this one with s...

    I?m only half way but man is it terrible. I love Logic so this is hard to say but it?s like a grade 11 wrote a book and thought it great. It?s cheesy, and tries to be really hip by using brand names in the descriptions every paragraph... I wanted to be in love with this book but ...

    I picked this up because I like Logic, but this leaves a lot to be desired. There were a lot of moments that were clearly just Logic jumping on a soapbox to talk about things he likes talking about, regardless of whether it had a place in the plot. There's a lot of pointless name-dropp...

    Preface: I'm not giving this a star rating because I don't think I can fairly give it one. What I will say is this: I enjoyed my time with this book and simultaneously listening to the audio book with it. I don't regret buying it both physically and in audio book form. Second prefa...

    I liked this book better as Fight Club. Sorry, Logic. HOWEVER, I did like the darkly comical and super absurd nature of everything present in the book. Flynn is a character that's been recycled and recycled through time.. using this archetype - you almost feel like you're waiting to se...

    In all honesty, I feel like this book has been bashed a lot for how it?s styled. Yes, it?s choice of words and the way it?s written is pretty juvenile, yet i find it unique. That?s what made me enjoy it more. I was reading through the life of Flynn, a college dropout, strugg...

    DNF @ 50% Jesus Christ, this book is the worst. I listened to the audiobook for this, and this is some of the worst writing my ears have ever heard. I can't even believe this got published to be honest. This story is absurd and ridiculous and the main character Flynn was driving me ab...

    My expectations were pretty low going in, but this novel is unequivocally, without exaggeration, a dumpster fire. It is beyond awful. The fact that this book was even published is.....confounding. This wouldn't be considered passable if it had been written by an adolescent. I'm sur...

    Well that was trippy! Not what I expected by the description but oddly enjoyable. The humor in this had me cracking up but underneath was an interesting story about depression. Very reminiscent of Cuckoo?s Nest in the very best way. On a side note, I didn?t know this author was a...

    4.5 stars This book is not without flaw understandably as it IS the authors first novel. The similarities between 'Supermarket' and one of my favorite novels of all time 'Fight Club' are quite strong and probably one of the reasons i enjoyed reading it so much. A few of the charac...

    This book was too busy trying to be great that it forgot to be good. Forget purple prose, the lengthy exposition in this novel left me black and blue. Supermarket is the debut novel by the rapper Logic and before I go into my review I am going to say that if this is a genuine career...

    I can only assume that the people that gave this 5 stars are fans of Logic. I was not a fan of him and didn?t really know much of his music. The story is decent which is the only thing that kept me reading. The dialogue is extremely juvenile with characters saying things like ?haha...

    I think I'm settling on 3 stars. ??? Interestingly enough, I didn't know who Bobby Hall was prior to seeing Supermarket listed as an anticipated upcoming release on Apple books a few months ago. It was only when I further researched the author that I made the connection that t...

    About halfway through the book finally picks up. Very dry in the beginning. A lot of random dialect and childish cussing but this is a first from the author, so there's plenty of room for growth. ...

    So this is how it feels to take a man?s life. Forced to kill for one?s own survival. I looked down at the puddle of blood by my feet, locking eyes with my own reflection. Fluorescent lights flickered overhead. How?d I get here? I was just a dude who worked at the grocery store...

    I finished this book in a day. Besides being an easy read, there are--contrary to popular belief--some good qualities I found. First off, this book is suuuuper meta. I usually don't like that, but since this book is so poorly written, it works. I like Part 1 more than the latter sectio...

    Frankly, I almost gave this book 1 star, which I've only done once, but I really did not enjoy Supermarket at all. It lacks a foundation, it is scattered from the first chapter, all the way until the last one, and it just doesn't have any depth or focus on anything other than Flynn (...

    There might be a little bias in this review as Bobby Hall (Logic) is my favorite artist... Supermarket is a really fun read. You as a reader, are completely immersed in the main character's thoughts, emotions, and overall attitude towards work and life. I guarantee the first paragraph...

    So, I?m a huge fan of Logic/Bobby. Awesome dude, love his music. I had really high hopes and an open mind for this novel, but unfortunately, this book is not well written at all. A 15 year old writes at this level, or better. Stereotypical and unrealistic characters, very predictable...

    Wow, I?ve never experienced reading a book that I originally didn?t like very much to ending up loving it completely. Part 1 was very dry, but after reading part 2 I am left feeling completely satisfied. Part 1 being the way it was makes sense as it is Flynn living in his loop, and...

    Despite some negative reviews of Supermarket, written by platinum-selling recording artist Bobby Hall, I decided to give this a shot. It?s a decent first novel where the story improves as you progress through the book, and the plot is cleverly presented. Whilst the author shows promi...
