My thoughts on "SEX, DRUGS AND COCOA PUFFS" by Chuck Klosterman


This book was abunch of essays by the author. He basically dissected abunch of different things, such as, Saved by the Bell, serial killers, internet pornography, cover bands, etc.

I would have liked this book a lot better, if not for the fact that I didn't care for Chuck's attitude on a lot of stuff. I found him to be rude and shallow to start. Or maybe I thought these things about him because I just don't 'get it'. But, just because of that doesn't mean that I didn't particulary dislike him.

He had a lot of interesting things to say, which some of the things I understood where he was coming from and agreed, and others I couldn't understand or completely disagreed. Which was OK, because these were all what he thought.

He does have facts to back up some of what he says and there are footnotes and an index at the end of the book.

I really did enjoying reading the different essays though on the different subjects he wrote about. I find this format an interesting read and I will be looking forward to reading more books like this.
