REVIEW: Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs

Nathan Formella, Advertising Director

Chuck Klosterman is a very open man when it comes to his life. His book “Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs” was one of the best essay collections of the year in 2004. It is a fascinating piece all about his own experiences and opinions on certain topics, which ranged from pop culture to sports and politics.

Klosterman starts the book off interestingly and, for me, it is unlike many other books I’ve read. He makes the table of contents like the tracks of a CD. Just by switching this standard piece of a book, you can tell this book is going to get very interesting. And it was much more than just interesting.  Once you start reading this book you will not be able to put it down. It is filled with crazy, wacky information of postmodern America. Telling you about reality television shows, Internet porn, video games, MTV and even Pamela Anderson. I’d say thats very interesting, right? Yet it gets even better going into sports and talking about the great rivals, such as the Celtics and Lakers

This is defintiley one of the most interesting and mind boggling books I have ever read. Klosterman really makes you understand what American life is and paints a very graphic image in your head of what he is writing about. His style of writing is unlike any other authors, which is really exciting and entertaining to read. I will definitely look forward to reading this book again and you should take a look and think of reading it yourself.

Klosterman has penned many essays and books, each of which I cannot wait to read.
