Book Review

Title: I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell
By: Tucker Max
Pages: 288

Book Description: "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.

Actual reader feedback:

"I am completely baffled as to how you can congratulate yourself for being a womanizer and a raging drunk, or think anyone cares about an idiot like you. Do you really think that exploiting the insecurities of others while getting wasted is a legitimate thing to offer?"

"Thank you, thank you, thank you—for sharing with us your wonderful tales of drunken revelry, for teaching me what it means to be a man, for just existing so I know that there is another option; I too can say ‘screw the system’ and be myself and have fun. My life truly began when I finished reading your stories. Now, when faced with a quandary about what course of action I should take, I just ask myself, ‘What Would Tucker Do?’—and I do it, and I am a better man for it."

"I find it truly appalling that there are people in the world like you. You are a disgusting, vile, repulsive, repugnant, foul creature. Because of you, I don’t believe in God anymore. No just God would allow someone like you to exist."

"I’ll stay with God as my lord, but you are my savior. I just finished reading your brilliant stories, and I laughed so hard I almost vomited. I want to bring that kind of joy to people. You’re an artist of the highest order and a true humanitarian to boot. I'm in both shock and awe at how much I want to be you."

"You are the coolest person I can even imagine existing. If you slept with my girlfriend, it'd make me love her more." "

What I thought: Oh my. I loved this book! SO funny. This book is a collection of Tucker Max's crazy stories... okay so its a book of his sexcapades. My guess is if you are between 17 and 30 you'd like this book and if you're male you'd like it more. If you were ever in a fraternity (I know, I stereotype) you'd like this book. If you ever went to college (note, I did not say you had to graduate) you might like this book. If you're my mother you won't like this book.

Of you could just go visit the Tucker Max website and read some sample stories an figure it out for yourself.

Don't wait for the movie version (it would be a porno).

... He has a new book coming out soon I hear.

I give this book 4.5 out of 5

  2. I'm going to have to agree with Mom!! I do love the flu guy picture. Hope you're all better now. Thanks for the laughs. I 'hear' your Mom (sorry) in your writing sometimes. Makes me smile just like she did when we'd have dinner or sew. Hugs, Bev
