  • The Reluctant Metrosexual: Dispatches From An Almost Hip Life

    Peter Hyman's musings, more pop cultural than philosophical, range from the heartfelt to the absurd, whether he's describing the scotch-soaked grief of a bad breakup or his unfortunate attempt at a menage a trois. With sophistication and enviable wit, The Reluctant Metrosexual chronicles the promiscuity and perils of modern manhood.

    Overall

    First, there's nothing "reluctant" about the author as he portrays himself in this book. He is that completely vain guy you meet at a party who spends most of his time name dropping. His only difference is the names that he drops are designer labels and trendy restaurants. He has the mistaken believe that his access to these "finer things" makes his life interesting and appealing to other people. Occasionally, he trys to look sophisticated by referencing books he read or his travels in Europe, but this also just reveals how shallow and self-obsessed he is. I'm sure someone would claim this book is meant to be satire, but if it is, they fogot to add the humorous edge to the commentary.

    Nancy Cartwright is the ultimate Simpsons insider. Her raspy, childlike voice is immediately recognizable as none other than Bart Simpson, the most precocious, irreverent, and intriguing 10-year-old ever to enter the American consciousness.

    Overall

    I love the Simpsons and was excited to get a behind the scenes looks at the show, but the overall content of this book was fairly weak. Beyond the general biographic information that she provides about how she got started in cartoons, she avoids putting any significant emotion and excitement in the anecdotes she tells about the show other than fawning over a few of the guest stars. Finally, the book was padded out by a large section on the animation process which I doubt many readers are looking to her to provide.
