But this fact isn’t really recognized by mainstream media.

When he has to drive her and her mother home, you feel the same level of awkwardness as he does. Hcad watching it to satisfy their curiosity, to satisfy their natural sexual impulses, and to learn how to have sex. Any asshole who reads it and says “What a great novel!

But it does something those books do, it illuminates the facets of the character, even though the plot can feel dull and cyclical. Oh, and the narrator of this book is basically Kyle from The Lie ameerican, which, i know this one amreican released years before, but they were basically the same person. He is almost like some kind of simplistic animal, neither good nor bad, but just desiring one thing which everyone is only willing to give to him in exchange for the semblance not the real thing, mind you of actually caring about them in some deep emotional way.

The characters are terrible. Ellis and Baker is, actually, woefully off the mark, son. I wouldn’t give much weight to either. I give points for the frank and blatant description of male fantasies, for keeping the main character a mystery he never discloses his background or job – made to fit us all and for one fantastic scene in the middle of the book. You have to like him. And the narrator is a witty, sarcastic, ass, allowing for his inner-thoughts to entertain you, as he thinks up graphic kulggen to punish his girlfriend while she’s being obnoxious.


Unnamed, never really in chda over his desires In my opinion because he has only one. My books all deal with the nature of relationships and communication in a modern world that’s constantly changing technologically and socially.

Amerixan perfect was it that I spewed on this book; I can’t really make this stuff up and I don’t really need to review it any further!? Now, I read this when I was 17 and I’m a girl and I loved it. Mar 06, Patrick rated it really liked it Shelves: It’s okay to be shallow and stupid.

Men need to give up the ideas of a “perfect woman” and settle for what they have. Is it that people or at least averag readers of that specific site don’t actually want the truth when it comes to sex?

The book leaves no question about his character, and thd really get to know him. When you compare the purity and simplicity of the averagge character’s desire with the subterfuge employed by the other characters, it really makes you question who, exactly, is the “better” person.

It’s mundanity is overwhelming. No one says you have to like this book.

The Average American Male

It’s all the rage at Urban Outfitters and I tried to finish it on a dare and for a potential JP book club. Anytime I have a book come out, I sit down with my publisher and publicists to figure out the best way to market the thing. I think it’s that the media outlets who circulate these things, by their very nature, can’t deliver the truth when it comes to sex.

I’m not really sure what I expected when I decided to purchase a book with a ribbon reading “the novel that inspired the hit viral video” in the corner, but I guess I got what I deserved. What I see is someone who doesn’t feel happy in a relationship because the sex isn’t good enough and because they want different things.

Do men really jerk off every couple of hours all day long until they meet up with their girlfriends later to have I have to admit. Stayed up into the wee hours of the morning to finish this.


If you aren’t reading about the things that the main character has done to women, you’re reading what he would be doing to various women that he sees as he walks the streets of L.

You know, people who don’t like being stereotyped but actually probably deserve to be. The Anthony Weiners of the world will stop being news, because nudity and sexual interaction through cell phones and Internet apps won’t be seen as a mistake, it’ll be seen as a rite of passage.

That’s not to say that it was so great that I couldn’t put it down.

The Average American Male by Chad Kultgen

Break up with he Average American Male sucks. Feb 11, Kevin rated it liked it. It’s a memoir, in a sense.

This book definitely made me think about what the author was trying to do with the main character by giving the audience so much freedom to decide if this book is realistic or not. By extricating this one important aspect of the typical male thought process, the author allows us to examine it in detail, like a bug beneath a magnifying glass.

This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I do believe that most self-named “scholars” do exactly the above, and if they were told that Twilight was actually written by Saul Bellow, they’d find a way to show you how brilliant they were by showing you how brilliant Twilight is.
