Wow. This was a good one. Strange, intriguing, uniquely structured. It’s done in such a way that the story feels like nonfiction. Couldn’t put it down.

I enjoyed The Nineties by this author, so thought I'd pick up some of his blacklist. Skip this one. It's twenty years old and shows its age terribly. Full of misogyny and half-baked thoughts paraded around like his greatest takes. I would not like to be stuck in a conversation with this man. *Shudders*. I'm glad to see he's improved since then at least.

I do not have any memory of the 90s so I wanted to fill my gaps of knowledge. For reference, some of my first childhood memories were 9/11. It is not much of a formal history book but a casual exploration on the American cultural highlights that shaped the nineties such as Nirvana or Mike Tyson. In a way, the book captures the personalities and feelings of the era. It was nice to learn about small things like "sell-out" and "commercialism", concepts that were important in the nineties. Also, the whole part about Biosphere 2 ?? How was that forgotten in history?? I cannot believe that happened. Why didn't my parents share this key information with me ??… (mais)

This is an odd little book. I would say it's one of those that make you wonder what the author was smoking, but he says several times that he was smoking pot. That explains a lot. It was funny in places, but I haven't really watched TV since 2000, and I didn't watch much for about 3 years before that, so even as a Gen-X'er, I couldn't relate to much of what he wrote about. I listen to several genres of music, but I'm not heavily into any (though I know several people who would absolutely love the chapters in which he dissected old rock albums) and I didn't recognize several of the bands he mentioned and very few of the albums.
The one thing he wrote with which I can completely relate is something I've wondered about myself. To paraphrase: We shouldn't pick up hitchhikers because all hitchhikers are serial killers and/or rapists. But you shouldn't hitchhike because anyone who would pick up a hitchhiker is a serial killer and/or rapist. So basically, everyone on the highway is a potential serial killer and/or rapist?
