's review
Aug 31, 2010

it was ok
bookshelves: 21st-century, canlit, american, dystopia, culture, economics, history, politica, religion, war
Read from October 24 to November 13, 2010

First 100 pages: OMG!!!!
Second 100 pages: omg!
Third 100 pages: uh hunh.
Fourth 100 pages: [blah blah blah]
Fifth 100 pages: Did I read that?
Last 63 pages: I should probs read that.

Don't get me wrong: Klein's got an important message. It's just that it's been done before. And, if her conspiratorial tone is so that she can be more accessible to the masses, why did she write 560+ pages? That is not an 'accessibility' approach, if you ask me.

James Moes Your review of this is similar to my response to No Logo. At some point I found her point a little redundant and long-winded. As in, I get the idea already - my mind is starting to wander.
