This book wasn't what I thought it would be. I expected more discussion of film, and less analysis of parenting, teenage boy-dom, and skanky girls. Plus, I get irritated reading books where men are devastated by women, because in my world, it's the men who are absolutely manipulative and cowardly. So 230 pages of women-bashing got a little old.

The link between providing his son with an alternate education via film was flimsy. Skip this one.

This guy can really write. I stumbled across this book and started reading it having no knowledge of the controversial comments he made where he came off as a sexist prig. I don't agree with the comments, but I have a grudging respect for his honesty, and really, the chorus of self-righteous outrage is waaay over the top. Again, I strongly disagree with his comments. But have we really become a society where everyone has to think exactly alike, or else be vilified by the politically correct police? How Orwellian. Anyway. The novel. Very compelling character study of a respected yet deeply self-centered and insecure college professor well-written, and character study. I would read more of Gilmour's books because he is a good writer, and I would not shun his other works because he is not politically correct.… (more)

Adult nonfiction. Another unique selection from the one-per-month publisher Twelve.

Absolutely horrible. The author is ridiculously self-indulgent and boring, his parenting skills: questionable. I hated pretty much every minute of it.
