Anna I'm mostly done with this book and honestly, most would take it as a little entertaining. To me, what Manson talks about speaks a lot about what Generation X has felt for years. The only difference is that Manson acts it out in his music and shows. Wanting to understand life and sometimes getting the shit kicked out of you and lucky to be alive. Except Manson accepts what happened to him and what he has become. Others like him would have become drunks or the lower rung of society. Manson has turned it upside down and become what most fear. The book can be a good nice quick read and a look into someone who learned to adapt.
Jack Hook Because the actual music of Marilyn Manson isn't really that important to the book. The music is reason most of the events happen but the really interesting parts are the one that explore his mind and his philosophy. Whether or not you like him, he's an interesting figure.
Benjamin Because it could help you understand why so many Millennials are fans. Like Larry Flint, his contribution to the doctrine of free speech in America cannot be overstated.
Jillian I read it because the guy I was into at the time was very much a fan and I was curious as to why. Manson frightened me but I knew he was human and I guess I wanted to understand where he came from and why he was the way he was.
Annabella Ringstad There was a really big craze around Marilyn Manson about two decades ago when he was considered the anti-christ, you weren't supposed to let your children listen to his music, and there were rumors flying left and right of all these things he had supposedly done.
Which he addresses in the book itself.
It's so interesting to find the truth behind his actions, to understand where his anger comes from. I'm also a huge fan of Nine Inch Nails, so reading about Trent Reznor made me happy.
James yes. even if I did not like the book I'd like his music
Floosey Green I read it and I'm not a big fan of his music. The book was interesting. He's creepy. It's lit tho.
