it was amazing

I read a few Goodreads reviews of this title, and it seems like everyone was sort of lukewarm about the book. Most people thought it was clever, but they also seem disaffected by it, like it was too frivolous to care much about. So I just want to say that I think the book is fantastic, and I think it's important. I'm a sucker for generational and sociological investigations like this one, and I like how seriously the book takes the hipster phenomenon. It's smart. It's fun to read. And I think I'll end up teaching parts of it next semester.
