Meeh.... ( )

This is a series of articles published by Chuck Klosterman who writes for Rolling Stone, among other things. He groups the articles by type: interviews with musicians, politics observations, etc. He's a great writer with interesting views. He writes little memories and whatnots to introduce the articles ( )

Loved this book. Extremely easy read and humorous. ( )

In brief: Section One (the interviews) was interesting enough. Section Two (the essays) was genuinely enjoyable (in particular, how to discern a nemesis from an archenemy) Section Three (the short story) started atrociously, and ended blankly (meaning, I felt nothing. No joy, no annoyance, etc. Nothing). At one point in the story the main character is talking about someone who isn't funny, but "writes in the style of funniness" (paraphrasing, badly). That seemed to be an apt summary of Section Three as a whole. It was there I was most aware of the "trying too hard". Overall, I liked it. ( )
