I'm Sorry, Chuck

I'm sorry Chuck Klosterman but I cannot finish your book.

I read three chapters, which I enjoyed, but don't feel implored to read any more.

I like your style and the level of attention you pay to the minutiae of pop culture, but you are almost too likable, or trying too hard to be likable, and reading your words makes me feel like I have eaten too much sugar.

I have enjoyed your magazine articles, and think your style is better suited to that medium than to the paperback.

And I'm sorry PJ and Z who bought me this book for (Step) Mother's Day, at my request.

I might read more of it later, but feel at the moment I have no time in my life to read books that may be non-fiction, but that are far too concerned with titillation.
