My name is Tucker Max, and I am an asshole. I get excessively drunk at inappropriate times, disregard social norms, indulge every whim, ignore the consequences of my actions, mock idiots and posers, sleep with more women than is safe or reasonable, and just generally act like a raging dickhead.

    A raunchy egomaniac and his offensive, shameless stories. Wow. It’s like bungee-jumping into the middle of the mosh pit at a fraternity grain party. I’m one of those girls who liked the Tucker book. Well, actually this is sort of a mixed review. The first story I read was the Tucker tries(…). I nearly peed myself it was so funny. For shock value and out of control laughs, you could stop after that story and be satisfied. The next story I read was pretty funny. The next brought a few chuckles, and by the fifth I was getting bored. Vomit and poopy pants is only shocking and funny once; not a dozen stories in a row. It seems pretty obvious that he decided early on to “never let the truth get in the way of a good story”. However, once you get over that literary hurdle of discovery, there are some really funny parts.

    Don’t get me wrong, if you like comedy and can overcome the frat-i-tude its worth reading a few of the stories. For the price of 2 drinks, there are few things to read for such out of control laughs right out of the gate. I don’t mean to knock Tucker, not that he’d care. I assumed by the content, writing and vocabulary this was written by a college freshman. When I later learned he’s a 30ish attorney, I was shocked. Hopefully his next book he’ll sharpen his pencil and delve a tad deeper into the memoir craft.

    For readers, I hope this tip helps. (It sure would have helped me). I recommend taking this book in small doses. Limit yourself to reading one story every few days, and you’ll love it. As for Tucker fans who are getting bored waiting for his sequel, there’s another hilarious book right up this alley that takes it a whole notch higher.

    The joke gets old …, October 2, 2009

    A cluster of stories about an overgrown frat boy whose only recreational activities are getting drunk, insulting people and having anonymous and often degrading sex, I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell doesn’t know what it wants to be. It clearly is tangentially related to the “don’t be like this guy” comedy of Seth McFarlane, Seth Rogen, et al, but also has millions of adoring frat boy fans who find Max’ misogynistic alcoholic scumbag to be a positive role model.

    I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell is funny at first, but the sheer repetition becomes numbing and finally appalling. It is difficult not to imagine him actually doing these things, which completely ruins the joke. It might have worked as a cartoon in the vein of the Seths, but as purported true stories, all you can imagine is this scumbag inflicting all this human suffering so he could get a chuckle or an orgasm.

    Even by his own declared ethical standard of “bros before hos,” the “Max” character (benefit of the doubt) fails, casually abandoning his friends to violence or Law Enforcement as he chases more empty pleasures which he will pursue again the next night.

    The one positive thing about this book is that it exposes the frat boy culture as essentially sociopathic at core. For that reason alone, it should be required reading at University orientations.

    I borrowed this book on a deployment when reading material was very scarce. I read a little over half of it before I grew bored. Every story is basically the same. Some guy gets drunk, has sex and does something humiliating or a variation of that formula. The writing is mediocre at best and lacks any memorable prose.
    However I think the most irritating part about this book is that the author claims all the stories are true. They are not. Some may be but most are not. Of the 6 stories/chapters I read, 4 stories I had heard before in the early to mid 90s either in college or in the army. They are Frat/Army/Young male urban legends. They always start something like My brother was telling me about this guy in his frat who “Insert drinking/sex/humiliation story here”. There is nothing wrong with these stories. I have told a few of them myself. However the main draw of this book seems to be that the stories are true. When they are obviously fiction or at least exaggerations it detracts from the book and makes it sort of silly.
