    In Eating the Dinosaur, Klosterman is more entertaining and incisive than ever. Whether he's dissecting the boredom of voyeurism, the reason why music fan's inevitably hate their favorite band's latest album, or why we love watching can't-miss superstars fail spectacularly, Klosterman remains obsessed with the relationship between expectation, reality, and living history. It's amateur anthropology for the present tense, and sometimes it's incredibly funny.

    Mark says: "Enlightening, entertaining and very well produced"

    Story

    Klosterman could probably be described as a cultural critic, but that just sounds like a way of saying that he writes about whatever the hell he feels like. The essays in this book seem to confirm this. More illuminating and interesting than hanging out with a stoner, but not far off from that experience.

    His place in the sphere of middlebrow criticism seems so unique that he is probably deserving of a Chuck Klosterman essay. If you like Klosterman's writings in Esquire or Grantland, you will probably enjoy this. If he annoys you, don't bother, this won't change your mind.
