HTTP://FIERTH.COM – Top Ten Books of 2011
HTTP://FIERTH.COM – In Christopher Berry-Dee’s third book devoted to combing the minds of some of the heinous criminals with a fine-tooth comb delivers what turned out to be, hands down, the most disturbing 300 pages of literature I’ve ever read. Parts of his expose literally made me a little sick to my stomach. This presented a dilemma in the grading of Berry-Dee’s book because despite the fact that I didn’t particularly enjoy reading The Voices of Serial Killers, it was impeccably researched and written in a way that masterfully combined hard facts with witty and humorous commentary – a difficult feat given the nature of the topic. Thus after some deliberation, I settled at what I believe to be a fair grade of B-.
HTTP://FIERTH.COM – “Sex, Drugs, And Cocoa Puffs” is Klosterman’s personal analysis of all things pop culture. No topic is too mundane or obscure for his dissection. Kloserman explores Pamela Anderson and Billy Joel with the same level of earnestness usually reserved for presidential elections or terrorism. Despite finding his musing vaguely interesting and moderately amusing at times; my tolerance for his writing style and self-deprecating cockiness dwindled as the pages wore on.
