Review by pinprick
Once I started reading this I realized I had read some of the articles previously, the first time they were published in magazines. That doesn't mean I didn't enjoy them just as much the second time around. Klosterman is a writer of quick wit, more than a few pop culture references, and a charming tone of slight self-deprecation. More than a few times I laughed out loud while reading this book, and even when the topics concerned things I have zero interest in (such as, sports), the writing was engaging enough to keep me reading, as well as laughing.
