bookshelves: short-stories
Read in March, 2008

I was expecting much more from this book. Edited by Ben Karlin - former editor of The Onion, former executive producer of The Daily Show and co-creator of The Colbert Report - this book should have been a rip-roarin'-romp through male inadequacy and insecurity. It started out strong, but somewhere along the line it became the male version of chick lit: dick lit. And boring to boot.

At first, it was good for a few laughs. But then I laughed less. And got bored. And maybe started to skim a bit. And then started to think about what I was going to read next... while I still had it in my hands, "reading" it. Not a good sign.

It gets three stars from me for the four-star stories that started the book, averaged with the two-star stories with which it closed.
