Rating: You Want to Read

Reviewed By: Janelle

David Foster Wallace made an art of taking readers into places no other writer even gets near. In his exuberantly acclaimed collection, BRIEF INTERVIEWS WITH HIDEOUS MEN, he combined hilarity and an escalating disquiet in stories that astonish, entertain, and expand our ideas of the pleasures that fiction can afford.

I feel that largely, I am not the intended audience for this book. I found some parts of the book very interesting and I found them to be very telling about the male way of thinking. Some of them I did not understand or found strange. And there were some that I found just plain gross.

That said, I think that – for the right audience – this book will be very entertaining, insightful, and funny.
