    Story
    (52)

    A contest of wills with a deranged cleaning lady. The execution of a rodent carried out with military precision and utter horror. Telemarketing revenge. A different kind of "roof work". Dating an undertaker who drives a mini-van. This is the fabric of Augusten Burroughs's life: a collection of true stories that are universal in their appeal yet unabashedly intimate, stories that shine a flashlight into both dark and hilarious places.

    Story
    (144)

    Here's Tucker Max's third and final book in his series of stories about his drunken debauchery and ridiculous antics. What began as a simple sentence on an obscure website, "My name is Tucker Max, and I am an asshole," and developed into two infamously genre-defining books, I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell and Assholes Finish First, ends here.

    Angie says: "Unbearable."
    "The perfect book for fans of "Jackass, the Movie"."

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Frat boys, date rapists, etc.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something intelligent.


    Did Tucker Max do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Thankfully, he did not use the girls/women's real names, so, they were easy to follow by their nicknames.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It made me feel good about my own deficiencies.

    Story
    (290)

    "My name is Tucker Max, and I am an asshole. I get excessively drunk at inappropriate times, disregard social norms, indulge every whim, ignore the consequences of my actions, mock idiots and posers, sleep with more women than is safe or reasonable, and just generally act like a raging dickhead. But, I do contribute to humanity in one very important way: I share my adventures with the world."

    "A perfect book for jerks"

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I did recognize the type of person I do not want to be by listening to this book.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Most interesting - that men like him are not afraid to admit to their behaviors. The least interesting is the opinion that Tucker Max has of himself.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Tucker Max’s performances?

    Only to see if he has grown or has changed his ideas of women.


    Do you think I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It needs an apology for his behavior to all the people he insulted in this book.


    Any additional comments?

    Listening to this book reminded me of listening to my little brother and his friends when they would sit in the basement smoking pot and telling stories. I could have sworn it was them.
