When you enter the negative universe of Rick Moody's "Hotels of North America," remember you are walking the same path Jonathan Swift took with "Gulliver's Travels," and J.P. Donleavy's "The Ginger Man." That way, when you read the hilarious scatalogical adventures of Reginald Edward Morse you won't stop at the political incorrectness. The "hero" of this novel, the unreliable narrator, disburthens himself of his adventures in hotels across the USA, throwing in a few in Europe for good measure. The book is structured as a set of online hotel reviews (mostly bad) but the author intrudes with his sexual escapades, criminal activities, and general misbehaviour. As Moody explains in his metafictional "Afterward" the story is as much about aloneness, the feeling of being separate as anything else. For Morse, being separate gives him the license for misbehaviour. Morse is a cad and a creep. His quasi-reviews make us wonder a bit more about the people whose reviews we actually read on TripAdvisor (me included). I'm sure there is a "Morse" Code, maybe a cynical man's da Vinci Code, and it could take some time to find it. Moody puts the pretentious on trial, the hotels and motels that try to deliver a retail experience and why we fall for them. A hotel stay is a peculiar form of reality we adore because we too are pretentious. Home is not good enough for many of us so we crucify our homes as dull and boring. We look for "reality" on TV. What drove this home for me was the very funny passage on the porn channels that can be found on the TV sets of "family" hotels. Porn is the antithesis of home. Destructive. Disgusting. Moronic. And a big time profit centre for hoteliers. Go figure.… (mais)

After reading through to the end, reread the beginning! Using the conceit of a schlocky adaptation of a schlocky film is at times challenging but I found the second novel within a novel far more entertaining than the first.

This one lost me at about the halfway point. It doesn't seem to really be about anything. I mean I guess you could say it's about how screwed Western culture is, but he's not very subtle in his satire, and it wasn't very satisfying, as a theme. He doesn't use his characters to bring you along to his obvious sense of despair for our future. So you just don't care. Or at least I didn't care.
