    In I Wear the Black Hat, Klosterman questions the very nature of how modern people understand the concept of villainy. What was so Machiavellian about Machiavelli? Why don't we see Batman the same way we see Bernhard Goetz? Who's more worthy of our vitriol - Bill Clinton or Don Henley? What was O.J. Simpson's second-worst decision? Masterfully blending cultural analysis with self-interrogation and limitless imagination, I Wear the Black Hat delivers perceptive observations on the complexity of the anti-hero.

    Any additional comments?

    While the premise was interesting it seemed at times like he was all over the place and it was a bit confusing. Many of his ideas are interesting but he doesn't really provide much concrete evidence of them. I think the book really brings up good ideas but his support for his opinion on the ideas sometimes just isn't there. This also is the first book of his I have read where some of his personal biases seem to have clouded his reasoning and not made me buy in.

    The visionary creator of the Academy Award-winning Pan's Labyrinth and a Hammett Award-winning author bring their imaginations to this bold, epic novel about a horrifying battle between man and vampire that threatens all humanity. It is the first installment in a thrilling trilogy and an extraordinary international publishing event.

    What could Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The interactions between the characters were boring and cliche. You constantly knew what would be said before it happened.
