I’m not really sure what I expected when I decided to purchase a book with a ribbon reading “the novel that inspired the hit viral video” in the corner, but I guess I got what Kuktgen deserved. There is a deliberate stripping down of a character taking place here, and ghe is done in a way that illustrates the subtle power of the best fiction. This is nothing short of awesome. But despite all the things I take issue with in this book, I come back to the fact that I couldn’t put it down.

Jan 21, Sean Ferguson rated it it was ok. I kept reading anyway.

I do believe that most self-named “scholars” do exactly the above, and if they were told that Twilight was actually written by Saul Bellow, they’d find a way to show you averags brilliant they were by showing you how brilliant Twilight is. His language is repetetive Much in the tradition of American Psycho, this book sees the world from one man’s idiosyncratic, shallow and selfabsorbed perspective, but where Ellis offers thought-provoking insight in the juxtaposition between the aestethic and the destructive, Kultgen offers just dirty words and juvenile sex fantasies – though it must be said, that he is both frank and very spot-on in his portrait of the suppressed male sexuality, it doesn’t provoke much more than a lazy erection.

Christ, the titles are even similar. This book made me laugh with its biting look at the private observations people make about everyone they come in c Kultgen’s sex-filled stream of consciousness style is completely unfiltered and painfully honest. This novel is a fascinating and clearly controversial broadside to political correctness and the cherished illusions so many people hold regarding the difference between the sexes.

I gave it two stars because it’s definitely titalating at first, like a car crash of naked dead people, however the sexual fantasies tend to be on the side of evil and boring. The book is mostly about sex and aveeage almost but not quite the same feel as a Nicholson Baker in the 90s. I’m a self-described marriage abolitionist. We know that he had a childhood and parents who are still present in his life.

You Can’t Handle the Truth

I actually wouldn’t be surprised if Chad Kultgen is really Bret Easton Ellis, considering the fact that Ellis’ last two books were horrible, and Kultgen’s photo is mysteriously absent on the web. I smell some serious bullshit here. Although he vaguely alludes to having a job, he has no visible means of support. What I see is someone who doesn’t feel happy in a relationship because the sex isn’t good enough and because they want different things. avedage

The Average American Male

After kultggen years of being entrenched with rock-stars thd their entourages, Chad moved on to become a staff writer for one of American Media’s most beloved supermarket tabloids. Then we’ll discuss it like human beings, though, because seriously I’d be curious to hear what you had to say. Act like you have thumbs.

They were originally self-published outside the mainstream media, and they’ve reached a level of success that’s unfathomable. Much in the tradition of American Psycho, this book sees the world from one man’s idiosyncratic, shallow and selfabsorbed perspective, but where Ellis offers thought-provoking insight in the juxtaposition between the aestethic and the destructive, Kultgen offers just dirty words and juvenile sex fantasies – though it must be said, that he is both frank and very spot-on in his portrait chax the suppressed male sexuality, it doesn’t provoke much more than a lazy erection.

I think the acknowledgements to his parents at the end says it all We never get his name, but we don’t need one. Instead, he writes like Tucker Max’s inbred cousin, lustily using naughty words in a flippant manner to make himself seem edgy, but it all ends up having the opposite avsrage. Sometimes you want kultggen that’s just a little more engaging than the white noise, or at least I do. Feb 06, Ryan rated it liked it. I wouldn’t give much weight to either.

I really like this book and it could only have been improved with pictures.

The Average American Male (Average American, book 1) by Chad Kultgen

The book amerjcan particularly depressing, but the ending is. When he’s not getting some or trying to get some he’s either taking matters into his own hands, or thinking about doing so. The book is horrible horrible horrible. But we also still live in a time when giant media companies are beholden to their sponsors, and they have to uphold whatever standards those sponsors dictate, which creates an interesting scenario.

Lots of guys likely gave this minimal stars because they don’t want the females in their lives to know how close to the truth this book hits. It could have made its point and been raw and edgy and engaging without overstaying its welcome maybe that’s why the 30 second viral videos were such a “hit”, despite the fact that they sucked and weren’t at all funny.

In a metaphorical sense, I think this book really showcases the cage that masculinity can become. The book is set in L. Did the book move me on an emotional level? It’s not so much as a detriment to this book, more like an observation.

His language is repetetive and numbing – which again offers a good portrait of the male mind at its worst, but doesn’t lend itself to good storytelling or provocative debate. I did sanitize the book and eventually returned it to my neighbor, unfinished. You know, so I can properly feel superior to both. But whether you are comfortable with the premise or not, what you do need to accept is that underneath all the sex, there are real issues that men do their best not to think about, real panic, and ultimately, not in all cases but definitely in some, real resentment.

He’s supposed to be something men can recognize to some point; a gamer, a frat guy, someone with an anal fetish, someone who’s stuck in a relationship with someone he just doesn’t love anymore. But, hey, i knew this wouldn’t end well.

However, leaving aside how we should feel and think about the behavior described, and just examining the behavior itself, a startling purity is revealed, as well as a kind of innocence. The self-absorbed narrator continually looks for and finds sex but is terrified, if not emasculated, by the prospect of love.

Nothing of this nature whatsoever. Maybe people who think they like to read but secretly don’t, who want to hold up a weathered tome and try to defend it and fail but feel like they should at least get credit for trying. You’ll think I’m crazy, but I find Average Amer.
