Description

The stunning debut novel from one of the most creative artists of our generation, Bobby Hall, aka Logic. Bobby Hall’s stellar narration is accompanied by music he performed specifically for this story.  

“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 Nest - if they met at Fight Club.” (Ernest Cline, number one New York Times best-selling author of Ready Player One

Flynn is stuck - depressed, recently dumped, and living at his mom’s house. The supermarket was supposed to change all that. An ordinary job and a steady check. Work isn’t work when it’s saving you from yourself. But things aren’t quite as they seem in these aisles. Arriving to work one day to a crime scene, Flynn’s world collapses as the secrets of his tortured mind are revealed. And Flynn doesn’t 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?

Amazing

This really is fantastic especially for a first novel from bobby. I can’t wait to see everything he creates in the future. It’s inspiring and the story made me happy, sad, nervous. I really care for the characters and I’m sad I finished the book.

AMAZING

Logic has been my favourite artist for around 5 years now and this book only added to it, along with his soundtrack this has been the best read/listen I’ve ever experienced! Good work bobby!

How is this his first book? this is amazing Very well written. Balanced every component of a good book perfectly. Although it was predictable most of the time it still had me at the edge of my seat.

Captivating but lacking Subtlty

I initially did purchase the book due to recognition of the author. but soon found myself racing through the book as the story weaved into it's bloody conclusion. I really think this book would've have been even better if it approached some of the aspects of the narrative were delivered with more subtlety but perhaps that's just part of the charm

Great listen

Really enjoyed the story. It was somewhat predictable but I enjoyed the journey nonetheless.

The narrator/author did a really great job bringing the characters to life and the pacing was well done.

It's alright

Im happy to support Logic as I think he's an intelligent and talented guy. The book is alright, you can tell that he's inspired by Tarantino, as Bobby tries to go for the twist ending. However, he leaves too obvious of clues so it's an expected ending. I congratulate him on being able to put it all out there and to publish a book. I think with more time, writing more, and learning more about nuances and how to lead the reader on better, he could be a great author. It's a good first try, but I won't be reading it again and would have a hard time recommending it.

What a great performance!

I loved this audible so much and so did my kids! We would listen to it in the car on our way to and from school and we were all hooked! They would yell as the left the car “don’t listen until we get in the car!” Great work Sir!

Worst audiobook so far

I listen to almost an audiobook a day and this was by far the worst. The narration was fine but the story....
1) The protagonist sounds like a self-important spoiled whiny teenage boy. I understand his struggles are very real but he was written so poorly I hated him with passion.
2) The “plot twist” was so obvious and on the nose, even I saw it coming from the beginning. And I’m the idiot that NEVER sees plot twists coming. Now in a good book that should not actually spoil the story but there were so many hints and nudges that it felt like the author felt so damn smug and awesome for creating this stupid plot twist.
3) The dialogs were so fake and stilted it hurt. Trying so damn hard to be cool that it was just creepy.

The only reason I finished this book is my own stubbornness. I can’t believe that this has a 5 star rating. I feel offended by how bad this book is, honestly...

Reads like it was written by a high schooler

So disappointed. Very poorly researched, the plotting is obvious and juvenile. This would have gotten a "C" in even a freshman college writing class.

Too safe for someone like Bobby; disappointing

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-dropping of artists, novels, and other pieces of pop culture that makes it hard to take it seriously as it's own piece of work. There are some bright moments of prose, the premise is interesting, and I think there's some promise here in Bobby as an author, but I really struggled to finish it.

The whole thing felt very amateur. Going in, I realize that he's actually is a freshman author and that you should go in expecting some degree of amateurism, very few authors publish a debut novel that feels completely polished and professional, In light of that, I tried to be incredibly generous about it as I read, and I tried to find things I liked about it. And I found them; but there aren't nearly enough of them to make this worthwhile for me. It relies a lot on tropes, cliches, pop-culture references, and forced, unnecessary fourth-wall breaks that weren't particularly clever or valuable. The plot felt like a fanfic of Fight Club.

I really hope Bobby keeps writing, and I hope he moves a bit further away from the creative well he draws on for his music. Having listened to most of his music and having been to a few shows made it much harder to feel like much of this was very original. Lots of details, references, and ideas could easily be traced to this song, or that interview, that they really felt like recycled ideas. He says in the acknowledgements that the first part of this was written a while ago, in a difficult time for him, so it makes sense that he writes about what was happening at that time in both his music and in writing; it's not his fault that those pieces of media were released at different times. But even then, you'd hope to see a bit more evolution in those ideas in light of his lived experience. The story is about an aspiring author struggling on his first book, and knowing that Logic was also an aspiring author working on his first book was all a bit too on-the-nose for me. I can't think of any safer creative territory than 1) your life and character as it is now, and 2) messages that you've already delivered in other creative media, and this book leans entirely on both of those. I think Logic is very creatively gifted, which is why it was especially disappointing to see him stick to things that are clearly very comfortable ideas and topics for him. I hope these glowing reviews from people that are clearly die-hard fans of Bobby as a person don't encourage him to stay on this comfortable track.

The audiobook version is really good, there's some really clever and creative use of the medium in the form of using the soundtrack, sound-effects, and vocal inflection. Making a soundtrack for a book is a really interesting idea, it works well, and it's stuff like that that makes me feel like Bobby can really make some interesting, fresh literary work someday. I just think this isn't quite it.

Predictable

This book was an entertaining enough listen, but the main plot points are very predictable and border on derivative

Leave this title at the store!!!!

I’ve honestly never written a terrible review before, but I am because I truly have no idea how this title had positive reviews. The story was the most predictable story I have ever read. Maybe it’s intended audience is middle schoolers who are too dense to pick up on the not at all subtle hints as to what is going on here???? And I have no problem with foul language or sexual content that have a PURPOSE!!! I felt like the f work was used just to increase the word count. And some of the pointless sexual content seemed like something worse than what you’d see in a B film. Do not read or listen to this title. It is a total waste of your time.

Disappointed

I have no idea how this book has such good reviews. There were no twists and turns and super predictable. This book is like if a high schooler ripped off fight club

Fantastic read.

Just entering my twenties, battling depression and anxiety, a lover of all art and music, filled with pure adoration for a creative mind like Logic— Bobby. Incredibly proud and excited to have someone to look up to like him. Absolutely loved the book and I’m hyped to see what’s in store for him next. Give it a read!
