Review: X Saves the World: How Generation X Got the Shaft but Can Still Keep Everything from Sucking
X Saves the World: How Generation X Got the Shaft but Can Still Keep Everything from Sucking by Jeff Gordinier
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This book started off being funny and relate-able in the first chapter. That chapter could not stop talking about Nirvana so it's not too secret to me why I enjoyed it so much. You know when you're reading something or talking with someone and it's like everything they say, you have that in common? That wonderful feeling of belonging? That is how this started off. It's like a book-end of goodness with this book. The first and last chapter were my favorite. It got lost in the middle of the book into something I can only describe as an episode of Seinfield. It was a book about absolutely nothing. But not as funny. More like a WTF moment. Then the last chapter arrived and it was getting good again until it dropped off the cliff towards the end.
Overall, not too bad of a read. It really gets lost lost in the middle and the author seems like he's rambling off words about things that have no cohesive bond to the subject or what he started off about. It was a fast read, I read it in one evening so there's not a lot of time investment to check it out.
