    1. I don t know what I expected getting myself into this book, but boy oh boy can I confidently say this was the worst book I ve ever read I knew it would be pompous and misogynistic, I knew that he would spew contempt for the very people that have given him a career for all these years, and the gross unnecessary sex scenes didn t exactly surprise me either What I didn t expect, for some reason, was how terminally boring it would be All the characters are paper thin, the plot might as well not exis [...]

    2. The impressive debut from Ben Foster, mastermind behind the Chicago punk band Screeching Weasel, is also thought of as a thinly veiled autobiography The story is that of the singer songwriter of a pissed off underground rock band, his relationship with an on and off girlfriend, and the ups and mostly downs of life in general Ben had previously written plenty of op ed pieces for magazines like Maximum Rocknroll and his own zines, and it was interesting to read his take on fiction, and his recreat [...]

    3. this is ben weasel from screeching weasel s foray into literature its pretty decent all in all the story is hackneyed in a lot of its concepts this is definitely nothing new or really all that inventive, but still a cool read if you re a fan of screeching weasel than i suggest reading this book.

    4. I felt this book was a terrible read The writing felt amateurish I think, because of who Ben Weasel is, name recognition is the only reason for this books existence If anyone else had written this, it would not have been published The poorly written sex scenes were not worth reading, and I guess that goes for the rest of the book as well.

    5. I remember this book took me awhile to get into and I found the story was dark and depressing It has been nearly six years since I read this book however but I remember not being overly enthusiastic about it but being impressed that Ben Weasel attempted to write a book.

    6. My all time favorite musician, Ben Weasel, writes a book Think Charles Bukowski, in punk rock band, writing about being in a punk rock band Not bad.

    7. A nice novel by the front man from Screeching Weasel and Riverdales A raunchy look at the underbelly of punk rock.

    8. Entertaining book Ben Foster is too much of a self righteous A hole to take as a real author If you are a Weasel fan it is a must read.
