Just like his first book I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell, once again Tucker Max has managed to actually make me laugh aloud while reading his stories. Although I thoroughly enjoyed this book, clearly he's matured and grown up a bit since the last one. Don't worry - he's still an asshole and a jerk but that's part of what make his stories hilarious. There are very few books that are so funny I have to stop and read certain passages aloud to my husband, and this is one of them.
I guess I should say that if you are a feminist or easily offended by non-politically correct people, then you SHOULD NOT under any circumstances read this book. I'm neither and I loved it. Just read it for the basic book that it is: a guy who is a jerk, who knows it, and who loves to be the center of attention and thus is also a damn fine storyteller. Would I go out and meet him for a book signing or try to be one of Tucker's whores? Hell no! But thank the gods for women who do, because they make for some damn hilarious reading.
I said that Tucker has matured since the last book - this seems to be a good thing. He clearly values his dog over most people, a quality I can't help but appreciate as someone who loves her dogs more than most humans. He also claims to want to settle down some day and have a wife and kids. Never thought I'd hear that from him. His story about HotNurse warmed my heart a little, and showed a bit of depth I wasn't sure the guy actually had in him. Clearly he loves women and sex, but he also values his friends as well. I think those out there who rip him to shreds need to step back a bit and ask themselves: if you were born with his wit and ended up in his situation, would you do it any differently? I wouldn't, if I was Tucker Max I'd be doing the exact same things he does. Except I would have burned in the fiery pits of hell before I went to Duke Law School. Go Kentucky!
I did enjoy I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell a little bit more than this one, mainly because I had no clue what to expect with the first book. I hear he's writing a third book, of which I will definitely buy.
