December 16, 2007 Brief Interviews with Hideous Men by David Foster Wallace
I'm not going to lie - I skimmed most of this book. I read it for the Finer Things book club discussion, but I just couldn't get into it.
It seems to be aimed at men and just wasn't relatable at all. Some parts were just disgusting and while some were funny, it just wasn't worth the rest of it. The only parts I really got into where the actual "Brief Interviews" because it was a nice look into men's psyches.
I'll still see John Krasinski's movie when it comes out, but I'm not as psyched as I was before I read the book.
